The Raytown Vineyard Church Values Prayer

March 21, 2010

 

Why are we are investing so deeply in Prayer, through our gifts, time, and even our finances?  Because in 2010, we are asking God to make the Raytown Vineyard a Praying Church.  (Want to know more?  Check out the 2010 Prayer Invitation.)

After all, it is true that “where your treasure is, there your heart will be also”. 

From the very beginning, God has asked us to be a tithing church–where we give away the first 10% of our church’s income before we pay our bills.

We have been blessed to commit over $1500 to the following Kansas City area ministries that are focused on Prayer.  This represents our way of sowing generously into becoming a Praying Church:

Raytown Vineyard Church Concludes 1st Year of Supporting Community Partners

January 7, 2010

From the very beginning, God has asked us to be a tithing church–where we give away the first 10% of our church’s income before we pay our bills.

As a new Raytown church completing our 1st year, we are committed to joining in with other ministries who are already doing effective ministry in our community.  This is a good opportunity for us to learn to be generous with no strings attached.

Thanks to God’s faithfulness through our generous congregation, we were able to give away over $7000 to community partners in the first year that we have been a church.

We have donated in Jesus’ name to these great organizations who are addressing critical physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs in the greater Raytown area :
