Vision Builders FAQ
What is Vision Builders?
Vision Builders is a capital stewardship program designed to help members of C3 Church
connect to a greater sense of purpose and mission in their spiritual walk. While tithes and offerings help finance the daily operations of church life, we ask Vision Builders to go “above and beyond” their tithe to help finance the GROWTH of the church! Ultimately, this gets accomplished by members prayerfully bringing their resources and finance into the house of God “above and beyond” their current level of giving. This is what it means to be a Vision Builder!
Why are we doing the Vision Builders campaign?
There are thousands of people in our community who do not yet know Jesus, and it’s our vision to become a community influencing church that brings people into the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.
Can the church count my tithe (or other giving) as my contribution toward the Vision Builders
Unfortunately, no. Capital stewardship campaigns rely on church members aligning their hearts and minds on things above, thereby offering gifts that go “over and above” their present level of giving.
How long do I have to complete my commitment for Vision Builders?
While we ask that you maintain your commitment for at least one year, being a Vision Builder means you’ve taken the step to financially contribute on an on-going basis.
Are my contributions to Vision Builders tax-deductible?
Yes. All Vision Builders contributions will be reflected on your year-end giving statement at the end of each calendar year. You may request a tax receipt at any time by contacting the finance department at C3 Church.
Can my commitment be revised?
Yes, your commitment can be revised should your circumstances change.
Pledge Card FAQ
Do I need to fill out everything on the card?
YES – Name, Address, Email, Credit Card Number/CVV/Expiry (if applicable – see below), etc. This helps us ensure everything is up to date.
What happens to my previous pledge?
Any previous pledges have technically ended, however, auto-debits will continue as is unless specifically cancelled or replaced. Please fill out a pledge card, even if your pledge amount is the same as the previous year.
What if I want to. give manually via check/cash/online
No problem! Simply write “will give manually” in place of the credit card number.
Can I sign myself up for auto-debit on Tithe.ly?
Absolutely! Just write “Have set myself up on Tithe.ly” in place of the credit card number. It’s more beneficial for you to do this, because you are empowered to make. your own changes/update expiry dates, etc.
When is my “Start Date”?
“Start Date” is the date you would like your auto-debit to begin. If you already have an auto-debit date/time that works for you, please write the corresponding start date on your pledge card to keep it the same (e.g. if your current auto-debit comes out on Mondays, your start date would be 10/19/2020. If it’s normally on the first of the month, write 11/1/2020).
What about my “One-Time” Gift?
One-Time Gifts listed on the pledge card will be assumed to be processed the same way you elected to give for your commitment, unless noted otherwise on the card. (e.g. if you. have provided your credit card number, that card will be run for the One-Time Gift up to 3 days after VB Sunday).
This 3D-rendering was shown on Vision Builder Sunday in October 2019. This is our future AUDITORIUM SPACE! We are currently working through the “design development phase” with our architects (Lyman Davidson Dooley, Inc.), and our AVL organization (STRATA Audio, Video, Lighting) to ensure we give C3 Church the best possible outcome for this new space. Once this phase of the project is completed, our next step would be to select a building contractor. Our hope is to begin the groundbreaking process in mid-2021! It’s an exciting time for our church! While this rendering doesn’t necessarily reflect an “exactly representation” of what our new auditorium space will look like, it’s meant to create an idea or image of what is possible for our future expansion. Of course, it’s our hearts desire to create a space with the highest level of quality and excellence as we walk through this process together. Thank you for your generosity as a Vision Builder!
