More Than Bricks – Blessings and a Challenge!

Due to the continued generosity of our members and attenders, we have officially surpassed our More than Bricks(MTB) pledge amount for the campaign. Our original goal was $500,000 with pledges received of $416,000, and through October we have been blessed with gifts of $417,509.54. To God be the glory!

As a reminder those gifts are split 80/20, 80% stayed at VotL for the purposes of everything relating to our building, and has recently been used to reduce our debt by over $50,000. The 20% has been split between our pre-selected mission partners in Minot, SD, St. Lucia and Nepal. That breaks out to $334,007.63 staying in Franklin, and $83,501.91 has been used outside, to help spread God’s message.

Our regular monthly MTB offerings should get us to about $430,000 by the end of the year.  We have been presented with a challenge to reach $450,000 by the end of the year, where we have a generous donor willing to match up to $10,000 of additional MTB giving, above any current regular MTB giving. If we can achieve this goal we will be able to fully pay off the Condo Parsonage in early January (in just 16 months from the loan origination).

We ask you to pray about this opportunity, and if you are so moved and able to make an additional MTB contribution, to please do so by the end of the year.

“This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of the Lord’s people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God” (2 Corinthians 9:12).
