Cadence also has a listing with the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC). If you participate in this annual fall pledge drive, please consider giving to Cadence International (CFC #10528). Note that such gifts are directed to Cadence, not specifically to the Vilseck House.
We're happy to answer any questions you might have about giving to this ministry or about House finances and needs.
The Vilseck House is a non-profit ministry of Cadence International, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. It is not part of the Army or paid for by the government, but depends entirely on voluntary gifts from people just like yourself. Here are a couple ways you can give financially:
Use the donation box in our hallway ($, €, or checks made to Cadence International).
If you're here in Vilseck, please give through the House account toward local ministry expenses (rent, utilities, ministry vehicle, food, etc.).
If you're elsewhere, please give through the Huisjen account toward missionary expenses (salary, medical insurance, other ministry needs, etc.).
(You can help Cadence avoid your credit card company's ~3% processing fee by choosing "Electronic Check / EFT" under "Payment.")
If you're actually with us in Vilseck, here are some ways you can help:
Help pick people up from Post for our Friday night dinner & study.
Volunteer to bring dessert on a Friday, or even better, to be our "dessert coordinator."
Welcome newcomers--not just here, but also where you worship on Sunday morning.
Help plan a Saturday activity. If you've planned something, invite others!
Come early to help set up for Friday night.
Attend and get involved at chapel or a local church.
Volunteer to help wash dishes--grab a buddy while you're at it.
Help clean the floors.
Share your joys and trials with others.
Invite others to the House, to chapel, etc.
If you play an instrument, help lead singing when we worship.
Park far away on a Friday night so others don't have to.
Honor one of our neighbors with a smile, a greeting, a kind deed, etc.
Coordinate a carpool or weekly barracks pick up, or offer someone a ride.
Help with childcare--an idea, a resource, or an evening of your time.
Support us with your prayers and/or finances (see below).
Please pray for us and for this ministry--that God would gain great glory by drawing many people to himself through Jesus Christ. Here are more ideas on how to pray for us: 1, 2, etc. Thank you! If you'd like to join our (mostly stateside) prayer supporters who receive our email updates, prayer requests, etc., please contact us and let us know--we'd be happy to add you.
The Vilseck House is made possible by many people working together to offer volunteer, prayer, and financial support - thanks for considering any of these!
