INVESTING TO MAXIMIZE YOUR ETERNAL RETURNS

We strive to be good stewards of all the resources entrusted to us, from buildings to office supplies, and from local pastors to foreign missionaries. We want to be found faithful in all we are called to do, whether the task is small or large. This extends to how we use your contributed dollars. If Village is not seen as a "good investment" for the funds God has entrusted to you, those funds should be invested in a more worthy kingdom ministry.

We, however, think Village is an excellent "investment." At the heart of our mission statement is a commitment to spread and to multiply the grace given to us by extending it to others. To that end, we work hard to be copper-plated conduits of God's grace to those both near and far, and to avoid any sense of gold-plating when so many are perishing around us. This call to a wartime lifestyle (a lifestyle that maximizes all you are and all you have for the sake of finishing the great commission) and all it entails drives our stewardship of "your" money.

WHAT YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS SUPPORT

Your contributions to the Church & Missions budget are used to support two broad categories: Ministry and Operating Expenses, and Evangelism and Missions Expenses. Ministry and Operating categories include support for Pastors and Staff, Building and Property, Family Discipleship, Adult Ministries, Worship and Music, and Office. Evangelism and Missions categories include funding for World Missions, Neighborhood Outreach, Campus Outreach, and Church Planting.

 

WAYS TO GIVE BACK TO GOD

ONLINE/AUTOMATED

You can make an online contribution (one-time or reoccuring) from your checking account or savings account.  This is a great method as it saves you and the church time and the church doesn't incur a transaction fee as we do with Credit Card contributions. This is a great way to go!  

There are several benefits to online giving for both you and the church.

First Fruits
In Proverbs 3:9 we are taught to honor the Lord with the "First Fruits" of our labor. By setting up a recurring contribution that is scheduled to come out of your account on the day you specify you can ensure that your First Fruits are given back to God.

Simplicity
You will not need to remember if you gave this month or send in your offering checks when you are out of town.

Security
Online giving is more secure than giving with a check in that an electronic gift can't be lost or stolen.

No Distractions
Instead of needing to worry about writing your contribution check during the service, you can be fully engaged with the worship service, knowing that you have already given your offering.

Helping Village
It is more cost effective for the church to process online contributions. In addition, it also simplifies the financial records the church needs to keep.

GIVING BOXES (Currently Unavailable due to Social Distancing)

Place a check or cash in one of the giving boxes located at the back of the church sanctuary. Giving envelopes are available in your bulletin and near the offering boxes.

MAIL

You may mail a check or schedule an electronic check payment with your bank to be sent to: Village Bible Church c/o Giving, 847 North State Route 47, Sugar Grove, IL 60554

STOCKS OR MUTUAL FUNDS

Giving stocks or mutual funds that have appreciated in value can be a good way to make a significant contribution to Village Bible Church and avoid the capital gains tax that might be realized if the stock were sold. Please contact one of our treasurers ( ) for more information.

EMPLOYER MATCH

Many employers will match charitable gifts, up to a certain amount. Churches almost always qualify for these matching contributions. The only thing you need to do is fill out the paperwork. It's a great way to increase your impact! 

CHECK IF MY ORGANIZATION MATCHES CONTRIBUTIONS

 

Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom. Sell your possessions, and give to the needy. Provide yourselves with moneybags that do not grow old, with a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches and no moth destroys. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. (Luke 12:32-34)


DESIGNATED GIVING

In order to maintain the tax-deductible status of your gift, gift designation preferences cannot be guaranteed. However, we will work hard to use your funds as designated and have never knowingly not applied a contribution as designated. For mission trips, if the person you designate your gift for exceeds their financial need, the funds will be used for others on their trip who are short of funds or for others on another mission trip.

 ALL IN FOR TOMORROW STORIES OF LIFE CHANGE

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tom and Kathy Barron have warmly welcomed my Wheaton College friends and me into their home many times, and the Lord has taught me much about hospitality through their heart for multicultural ministry.

At their home, I met my dear pal, Zuzu Rutare, who has allowed me to fall more in love with both the African food fufu and the heart of our Heavenly Father. I love listening to her never-ending testimonies of God's faithfulness. She is truly a soul sister, and I am so grateful for Village Bible Church being the avenue for us to meet and grow in the Lord together!

I think the new spaces designed for better personal connection, the streamlined entrance, and the expanded capacity in the worship center will help us better minister to our multicultural community for years to come!

 

Our very first Sunday at Village, we were warmly greeted. We felt welcome. We felt like people were glad we were there. After the service, we were again spoken to and acknowledged. People engaged us in conversation and we ended up talking with people in meaningful conversation until 1:30pm! We were almost the last ones to leave. I didn’t even want to leave. It was so good to be in the house of the LORD!

We have an exciting opportunity to help create a more useful and safe environment for the church body and our visitors. It’s often challenging to our sensibilities to spend money on physical things, but the needs we are addressing are well thought out and purposeful. This project will facilitate our ability to grow the Kingdom of God and love people under our care.

 

We moved from a small town, and our first impression at El Camino was very good. We saw kind people and smiling faces, and it was very significant for us that Pastor Nico came to personally meet us. We love the preaching and the worship services because they speak to us with the real truth of what the Bible says.

We love reaching out to our community through outreaches and sharing Jesus Christ at work, teaching in our small group on Wednesdays, and now, Octavio serves as an elder at El Camino.

We are very excited after seeing the plans for the building project. It will be great to get a better parking lot and more comfortable areas for all people to get to know each other. I think this project was first on God’s heart and now is on the hearts of our leaders and people.

 

Over the last two years, Village has been very supportive of our family. In the same year, we experienced two deaths in our family. The first one was my dad. The second was quite a bit more traumatic because it was our adult son.

Village came alongside us. When our grandsons moved in with us, the pastors stepped in to help. These boys needed godly men in their lives, and these men stepped into that role for them and have become great mentors.

I am excited about the upcoming projects. Taking care of what needs to be fixed and updated is wonderful and needed. I am blessed by our church community and I’m thankful that we are going to take the time and effort to fix the windows, replace the heating, and update whatever else is needed to keep the building maintained.

 

The Spirit is definitely working through Village as we navigate the challenges that come with being a blended family. We spend more time now in family devotionals than we ever had while attending other churches. Our two teenage daughters love attending and participating in Wednesday night youth group. We have seen exponential spiritual growth in both of them as they step up as leaders both in church and school.

We believe that the Plano Campus is in the middle of a season of extraordinary growth. We are seeing attendance grow every week! This is with a building that is rather hidden in the neighborhood. The new entrance, new parking lot, and new look of the building will bring attention to this new church to those driving by on Route 34.

 

God is using Village to make a difference in our lives through the excitement of attending a local church that teaches God’s Word from the Bible without reservations. We’re thankful to be in a church that continues to teach God’s Word, even when it conflicts with the culture around us.

Howard has served at Village by caring for the facilities, and Susan helps by providing meals and working in the kitchen. After the building project at Plano, the church will be more visible to visitors, the front entrance will be inviting, and we’ll be able to provide better parking. 

We’re excited that Village is investing in the future of our church to encourage the study of God’s Word, to be a lighthouse to the community, and to support the present and future church body.

 

The first time I walked into Village, I was welcomed in a warm, genuine fashion. Pastor Tim and the leadership team show their authenticity through a true love of our Lord, a true willingness to help, and a true demonstration of humility.

The renovation project recognizes that creating an environment that engages both young and old equally well is necessary to cross-connect generations and to prevent the church from becoming stagnant.

Although change can be difficult, we must be willing to create an environment that will make younger generations feel as welcome as it has for our own generation if we are to grow the Lord’s kingdom.

 

The Lord has used the people of Village Bible Church to work in our lives in so many ways, from praying for us through many sicknesses and surgeries, helping us build an addition to our house, allowing us to grow and serve as we taught Sunday School to their children for many years, and enabling Carol to serve the Lord as secretary for 25 years. We have been blessed and humbled by the love, prayers, friendships, and help of the people of Village since we began attending 44 years ago.

We are excited about the total project at the Sugar Grove campus. Expanding the parking lot and driveway will be extremely beneficial in helping ease the frustration of finding a parking place and getting in and out of the property safely.
