One of our core practices at OVV is generosity. We believe that all that we have comes from God and that we are stewards of His resources. This applies to everything in our lives - our time, our money, our stuff, our relationships – everything!
Part of giving means offering a portion of what we earn back to God in worship. It doesn’t matter if the money we have has come to us through a steady paycheque, from pensions, or from gifts. Over the years, God has been faithful to provide for our community’s needs in amazingly miraculous ways as well as through the faithful offerings of people who call OVV home.
