People are our priority. Our doors are wide open to people wherever they are on their spiritual journey. Regardless of whether or not they give financially, we are glad to have them with us.
We know that anything we have received comes from God, and giving shows that we realize that generosity. And when we give to others, they can experience the same love, grace, forgiveness, and healing that we have received.
"Teach those who are rich in this world not to be proud and not to trust in their money, which is so unreliable. Their trust should be in God, who richly gives us all we need for our enjoyment. Tell them to use their money to do good. They should be rich in good works and generous to those in need, always being ready to share with others. By doing this they will be storing up their treasure as a good foundation for the future so that they may experience true life." -I Timothy 6:17-19
Those who generously give to HVCC know that they are supporting the effort to unleash compassion on the community directly around us, the greater Chattanooga area, the United States, and the world at large.
