In 2020 we've been giving 5% of our offerings back to the community.
2020 VCA Generosity Fund
Last year the leadership of Vineyard Church sensed God calling us to make 2020 a year for living generously. In addition to our ministry to the poor and general budget expenditures for local, national, and global outreach, we felt led to give 5% of our monthly tithes and offerings to a local cause, charity, or ministry that was not affiliated with Vineyard Church. So far this year we’ve given away more than $30,000! This expression of generosity is made possible because of those who faithfully give to Vineyard Church.
