All Thanks to God
Thank you for your generosity! As you invest in God’s Kingdom, lives are changed forever.
Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
2 Corinthians 9:7

Frequently Asked Questions
All contributions are used to fulfill our mission of “Inviting people to new life in Christ.” Our goal is that every ministry initiative allows us to share the Good News of Jesus Christ. The Operating Fund is how we fund all of our ministry and operating expenses. In addition, you will see options for Campus Capital (capital improvements at our Brunswick location and future campuses), Benevolence (financial assistance for those in our body who are in need), Scholarships (youth events, summer and winter camps, etc.), and Adoption (financial assistance for those in our body who are adopting a child).
The two best ways are making your contribution electronically through your bank’s automated bill paying service or our website with an automated clearinghouse transaction (ACH) transaction. There is typically no fee or low fee associated with these types of transactions.
Online giving is the process where you authorize your bank to deduct a specified amount from your debit card, credit card, or bank account. We have partnered with BluePay (www.cvconline.ccbchurch.com) and Aware3 (CVC app) to make this process simple and secure. You choose your giving frequency and amount, and you can change it or stop it at any time. There is a convenience fee charged to the church for this type of giving. If you use a credit card, please pay off the balance each month so you do not incur any debt.
