why should i give
1) It is another step in your growth as a disciple of Jesus.
One measure of spiritual maturity is how we manage the resources God has given us. This is called stewardship. Our time, talents, and financial resources are all managed through stewardship, and God has called us to be good stewards. (Matthew 25:14-30)
Being a good steward is part of being a disciple, and the Bible calls us all to become disciples of Jesus. As we grow in our discipleship journey we begin to understand that everything we have is from God and should be used for His kingdom. Our focus changes.
2) Your tithes and gifts directly or indirectly expand the Kingdom of God.
Stewardship, specifically tithes and gifts, are part of being a committed member of VRL. When you tithe and give to VRL it supports what God is doing in and through His church here in the Spokane Valley and around the world.
Is God calling us to expand our facilities here? Is He asking us to add more staff to support the growing needs of our membership? What opportunities is He revealing where we can be involved directly in our community and around the world? These questions and many others are currently being explored, and we know God’s leading will come at a cost financially, directly or indirectly.
