Bringing New Life to Old Shoes

Would you be interested in participating in a fundraiser that will cost you absolutely nothing and that will financially benefit The Village Church?
The St. Augustine Branch of the American Association of University Women will be collecting gently used or new shoes that will be shipped to micro-entrepreneurs (small business owners who run the business with family members) in third world countries to be repurposed (cleaned and repaired and sold).  Any type of shoe will be accepted - sneakers (with or without shoelaces), shoes with cleats, dress shoes, casual shoes, men's shoes. women's shoes and children's shoes.  Shoes that would have been discarded are cleaned and repaired and given a new lease on life in developing nations as inventory for micro-entrepreneurs.  Millions of shoes end up in landfills in this country EVERY year.  Most of those shoes can be given a new life.  The donation to The Village Church will be a percentage of the total number of shoes collected as a whole.  There is a collection box behind the sound booth.
This event will run through October so there will be plenty of time to go through your own shoes and to ask friends and neighbors to participate.  We want all of your gently worn new shoes and sneakers.  The only restriction is that single shoes cannot be accepted.  There are no other restrictions.
Please contact Debbie Brinsfield at 940-7379 or [email protected] for more information or if you have any questions.  Thank you!

OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD MISSION TRIP

SPEND FATHER'S DAY WITH THE JUMBO SHRIMP

Bring Dad and join us for an afternoon of fun with the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp June 18.  We will leave from the church at 1:00 p.m.  Tickets are $20 and include a picnic at the Baseball Ground prior to the first pitch.  Sign up in the back of the sanctuary by June 4.

Church update given by Pastor Alan on April 30th

BUILDING UPDATE –as you might remember – we pushed the pause button on construction due to rising cost. While we were on pause – the Board of Stewards as well as members of the building committee had conversations that brought us to calling our architect and inquiring as to a smaller addition (which would have been phase 3 at a later date). We did some preliminary research and found out that a 5,300 square foot addition would not require all the extensive site work that would be required in a 12,000 sq ft  sanctuary. The previous design also left us with few classrooms. So we were confronted with what we want and what we need. And the need of additional classrooms as well as office space is more practical and financially feasible at this time. We are moving forward on a 5,300 square foot addition as well as pushing the back wall of our current family life center out 15 feet. This will give us 84 additional seats in our current sanctuary, 5 classrooms and office space.  This will also mean an update to carpet (which is 11 years old) and we are looking into updating our lighting and ceiling – because the 15 feet we are adding is currently outside and has a different ceiling and lighting than the inside.  

LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT PROCESS WHERE ARE WE GOING AS A CHURCH?      

      It is vitally important for churches to look at their vision and purpose statements as well as core values on a regular basis. While we all stand under the great commission – “go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you, and lo I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Matt. 28:16-20 – we also come at it a bit differently because we all have different gifts – just like each of us individually.  I gather, twice a month, with 5 members of the church- including one ministry team member, two Board of Stewards members and 2 individuals who have gifts and graces for leading an organization through a process of looking at our mission, purpose and core values. We also have a professor at Northwestern – Dr. Steve Mills who is consulting with us as we go through this process. Our goal is to help The Village Church continue to be a healthy, vibrant, and effective church for many years to come. This requires us to look at our health and effectiveness as a church and ask some hard questions. 

Why are we here? What difference would it make if The Village Church was not here? How can we do ____ better? And we ask that about all aspects of our church.  When our task is completed we will have a mission statement that not only reflects our church but one that all of our members will be able to share with those who ask about our church.  It will be clear, concise and will give us our marching orders.

     Over the last year  we have seen an increase in the number persons who are involved in our church through volunteering in areas from administration, missions, hospitality, helping new members connect,  leading and or joining small groups, and worship. This has all been an outcome of our Ministry Fair held last year where 103 persons signed up to give of themselves. We will continue to emphasize “reaching out” beyond ourselves – because as a body of Christ – we are called first and foremost to be servants – the word servant occurs 57 times in the New Testament – the word serve 58 times. We will find the greatest joy in our church membership when we serve – when we choose to be last – that is what Jesus meant when he said, the last shall be first. True joy means giving up our rights and preferences and serving everyone else – that is what church membership means as well.  Philippians 2:5-11 says; “Jesus did not consider equality with God as something to used for his own advantage – but he emptied himself by assuming the  form of a slave – he humbled himself – he became obedient to the point of death – even death on a cross."   This will be a cultural change for some – the question of "What can the church do for me?" will be replaced with – "What can I do for Christ through the church?"

   We have exciting days ahead – The Village Church is 17 years old and we have a  great deal of  ministry in front of us for his kingdom. Please look for our new web site that will be rolling out soon.

GRIEFSHARE Begins Again May 25

Griefshare is a caring group of Village Church members who will walk alongside of those who have lost a loved one, begins a new cycle May 25.  The meetings will be from 10 a.m.-Noon.  If you or a family member, friend, or neighbor are interested in attending or if you want more information, please contact Jack Tarr at [email protected] or 904-826-1062.

PRIMETIMERS Senior Adult Ministry to Launch May 24 

Out of a conversation with some church members, a need was identified to provide a social connection with other similar senior adults who desired a fellowship to meet and share what they may have in common over a meal.  The PrimeTimers hope to meet that need.  On Wednesday, May 24 the group will hold an organizational meeting at 1:00 p.m. at Denny's on State Road 16 near the Outlets.  For more information, contact Pastor Mike.
