Spend a day at JAARS for an up-close look at Bible translation and why it relies on practical support like aircraft, boats, and the internet.  Ride in a helicopter or a five-seat plane.  See how people get the internet in the rainforest.  Record your voice into the JESUS film.

Mission Team Returns from York

Our 2015 Youth Mission Team has returned from its trip to York County, Pennsylvania.  The team worked in nursing homes and assisted living centers, helped out picking corn, tomatoes, and zucchini at a local farm that donates ALL of its crops to a local food pantry that serves over 60,000 residents, worked in community gardens, and helped with maintenance projects at a summer camp.  The team left an amazing impression on the community while reframing Jesus and seeing him in a new light.  In addition to their work, the group was welcomed for worship and a meal by the congregation of Calvary Bible Church, enjoyed a wonderful picnic hosted by Terry & Carol Shearer, whose daughter Sarah was a part of our 2014 team to Nashville, and enjoyed a backyard concert featuring the "King of the Cigar Box Guitar", Shane Speal.  

Pastor Alan, Tom Bowers and The Village Church family:
First, I would like to thank you for the opportunity to join the Youth Group this past week on the mission trip to York, Pennsylvania to serve with A Week of Hope in the community.  The experience was refreshing, rewarding and spiritually enlivening.  My experience involved work in a Skilled Care Nursing Facility; to see the faces of the residents as the youth walked into the facility was breath taking, to see how they could change a persons' day with just a single "hello" was heartwarming.  I am grateful to have had the time to experience this with our youth and the youth from other churches.  It truly was a remarkable experience.
Second, I would like to thank Tom for an outstanding job with the group throughout this week and always.  Through the challenges and inspiring moments; disappointment and enlightening times, Tom remained cool and composed, inspiring and discerning.  He is an exemplary role model for the youth of this church and an inspiration to me.  To see how the youth have grown over the past several years and to work with them directly was an incredible opportunity.  I applaud Tom for his dedication to this program and these students.
Thank you for the time and the opportunity to share in this journey with you.
Graciously,
Lois Harris

Dear Village Church,
Thank you so much!!  Mission trip this year was amazing!  I loved every part of it!  The church has supported the youth so much by allowing us the opportunities to do mission trips and all of the fun activities we do.  Thank you for allowing us to be able to share God's work with other parts of the country!  As well as learn from other people on what they have been doing to help out in different communities.  Personally, this last mission trip to York, Pennsylvania changed me as a person and opened my eyes.  I met some great people on the trip and bonded even more with our youth group family.  I had many God sightings and was able to see the impact of what the Week of Hope was doing for the community.  It was very eye opening to see what we can do on a mission trip and what we can bring back from the mission trip to do in our own towns.  I learned how to see Jesus as my main dish instead of my side dish.  Thank you for giving us youth an opportunity to grow spiritually, and to grow stronger together as a group.  We have made many memories on this past mission trip and hope that in the future we will continue to make even more together.  The church is like a second family to me and the fact that everyone is so supportive of the youth is amazing to see.  I appreciate the fact that everyone cares and wants to see us blossom into very spiritually minded adults.  I think I can speak for everyone in the youth group that we could not have gone on this mission trip or any other trip without your help!  Thank you so much!
Thanks

Dear Village Church,
     Thank you so much for the money to go on the mission trip!  Everyone had a lot of fun doing service!

Dear Pastor Alan,
     Thank you for all you have done for making the mission trip happen.  We wouldn't be able to go if it wasn't for you.  We had a splendid time on the trip and it was nice to serve for people and for God himself.  You are a kind hearted man that lifts people's feet up.  We wouldn't be able to do the stuff we did at York, so thank you so much for what you have done for the youth group and for the church.  I really appreciate what you have done and hope that the chuirch didn't have a party while most of the youth were gone.  Again, thank you so much!
     Love,
     Jessica Cook
