Church Vitality Grants 2021

Northern Piedmont Church Vitality Grant – The grant awards financial assistance to support and resource congregations to develop mature discipleship and embody The Beloved Community.  The Vitality team believes we can only be vital if we equip disciples toward spiritual maturity in their journey as we live into God’s Kingdom for all people. Within the application you will need to articulate how disciples will mature with short term and long-term goals of spiritual growth. The church applying must have paid their apportionments for the last two years and be up to date with their current apportionment commitments.

Missional Engagement Grants 2021
 
Northern Piedmont Missional Engagement Grant - The focus for our Missional Engagement grant process is toward the establishment of "partnerships in mission" formed by at least two congregations and their desire to reach out collectively beyond the walls and property of their churches to serve the needs and various populations within their communities. The rationale for this is to be a more effective presence of the Body of Christ that reflects and projects the love of God to our neighbors in a tangible and spiritually significant way. Churches applying must have a financial commitment to the endeavor and must have paid their apportionments for the last two years and be up to date with their current apportionment commitments.
