We give because God gave first.
For God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten Son… (John 3:16)

Building a Lasting Legacy of Faith
The Vanderbilt Presbyterian Church Endowment Fund is a perpetual source of income for the Life & Mission of the Church.
Tithing is more than Giving
The word “tithe” means tenth or 10%. Tithing, or giving 10% of your income, is not merely giving something to God. It is giving back what was His to begin with. All that we have, or hope to have, comes from Him. The Bible says that tithing is a reminder that God is the supplier of everything. It teaches us to always put God first in our lives.
2022 Stewardship – Giving : An Expression of Faith
Dear Family and Friends of Vanderbilt Presbyterian Church,
We want to begin by saying Thank You. So often, it is easy to get so caught up in the work of this church that we all forget to express our gratitude to those around us whose tithes and offerings make this ministry possible.
The theme for the 2022 Stewardship Campaign is Giving: an Expression of Faith. We have all the pieces in place to grow Vanderbilt: a wonderful full time pastor, a beautiful renovated sanctuary, a world class organ, a great music director, an excellent children’s program and a focus on mission giving. To keep all of this moving ahead, we need everyone to prayerfully consider their 2022 Estimate of Giving. It is truly the time to step up and make your estimate of giving a priority. GOD COMES FIRST!
In order to continue all of the wonderful ministries and missions of our congregation, we are anticipating a need for a 15% increase in income for next year.
Your estimate is important so that the Budget and Finance Team has an estimate of how much money can be allocated to the various Ministry Teams during 2022. Please bring or mail your Estimate of Giving Card to the church any time on or before the Stewardship Dedication on February 13, when we gather to dedicate our commitment. You may also use https://vpcnaples.org/worship/estimate-of-giving/ to make your financial estimate.

Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.
Malachi 3:10 (NIV)
