Vertical Church Charlotte
- Financial Update -
God has been so faithful to our church from the very beginning! On March 18, 2018, Bobby Greenwood (one of our elders) reported on our financial position as a church. As you know, God’s faithfulness to our church is manifested through the faithful giving of each member. Jesus and Paul both spent time speaking to the significance of our resources as believers.
The Bible teaches that our giving should be:
We give of our resources regardless of how we feel, what’s going on in our lives, and out of obedience.
This word reminds me of 2 Samuel 24:24, “…I will not offer burnt offerings to the LORD my God that cost me nothing.” We give out of the overflow of what God has graciously given to us to steward.
Paul writes in 2 Corinthians 9:7, “Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”
Our giving reflects our worship. We want to be a church that God, Himself, would want to attend. In order for that to happen, everything we do must be about Him, including our giving.
In order for us to fulfill our mission, “To glorify God through the fulfillment of the Great Commission,” each person that calls Vertical Church Charlotte his/her home church must give faithfully, sacrificially, and cheerfully. Each person in our church helps to shoulder the weight of Kingdom responsibility.
