Fall Events Underway At The Village Church

Now that the summer has drawn to a close, our Fall schedule is underway with lots of new opportunities to plug in and grow!!
SMALL GROUP BIBLE STUDIES - A new 6-week study of John Ortberg's book "God is Closer than You Think" begins this week.  This study will teach us that a relationship with God is not just a theological concept for the spiritual elite and how we can reach back to God and capture this unique and spirit-filling relationship.
GRIEF SHARE - A new Grief Share group is underway on Wednesday nights at 6:30 p.m. and meets for 13 weeks.  Grief Share is a friendly, caring support group who will walk alongside of you to help you through the grieving process.
LADIES BIBLE STUDIES - A new 9-week study of Beth Moore's "Children of the Day" is being held on Tuesdays.  There are two sessions, one at 9:45 a.m. and one at 6:00 p.m.
CONFIRMATION CLASS - A four month Journey to Confirmation class for middle and high school students began September 14.  The class is meeting Sunday mornings between services at 10:00 a.m. in the Youth House.
TAI CHI CLASS - A free 12 week Tai Chi class is being offered on Wednesday nights at 6:00 p.m.
In addition, our ongoing programs for Sunday School, Youth, Children, and Men's Ministry are continuing full speed ahead!
For more information or to register for any of these programs, please contact the church office at 940-6768.

Mission Team Returns from Week of Hope

Our 2014 Youth Mission Team recently returned from its Week of Hope Trip to Nashville.  Students worked with area agencies that feed the homeless, provide goods to low income families, and provide supplies for school students, as well as working with residents in Senior Housing Centers, a woman's shelter, and tutoring refugee children.  In addition, team members were challenged to be transformed through evening programs and group devotions throughout the week.  Thank you for your gifts to The Village Church that make programs like this possible.
