The Faith and Finances Ministry at VPC seeks to provide opportunities for spiritual growth for anyone wishing to balance earning, giving, saving, borrowing and spending in a God-honoring way.
Money plays a leading role in many of the 7 deadly sins (Envy, Greed, Gluttony), while the others (Lust, Pride, Sloth, and Anger) can have painful financial consequences. How we handle money reveals and shapes our values and priorities. It can provide a useful barometer of faith, and a lever for spiritual development. Christians must be schooled in Godís economy.
Have you mastered money, or are you mastered by material things?
In addition to the two classes described below, VPC periodically offers the following additional courses; use the links to read about these.
