THE VILLAGE CHURCH | WESTERN SPRINGS BAPTIST CHURCH
THANK YOU FOR YOUR GENEROSITY!
God provides for the ministry of our church through the generosity of people through gifts and offerings.
When we give, we believe it’s about personal worship to God and handing back to Him a portion of what He has given to us, and it’s about lives changing through the transformative power of the Gospel in our community and around the world.
"But who am I, and who are my people, that we should be able to give as generously as this?
Everything comes from you, and we have given you only what comes from your hand.”
