Time: 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.

The Village Church has planned a very special evening for the ladies of our community that is just in time for the beautiful spring season.

A special dinner prepared by Chef James King will include roast chicken with apple almond compote, a starch, vegetable and dessert. The ladies will be graciously served dinner by a select group of men from the Village Church.
Steinmart will present some exciting spring fashions modelled by girls and ladies from the Village Church. As an added attraction, we are requesting interested ladies to create and wear a special spring hat for the occasion. There will be prizes awarded for the "Most Creative", the "Most Colorful", and "Most Eclectic" hat.
This is a wonderful opportunity to invite ladies of our community, as well as to experience fellowship with friends from the Village Church. Sign up for the event will be available Sundays after church through April 4th. Check, cash or credit card will be accepted.  THIS EVENT IS NEARLY SOLD OUT!!!

MARK YOUR CALENDARS NOW FOR FESTIVAL OF HOPE

Be sure to set aside May 29-30-31 for the Greater Jacksonville Festival of Hope with Franklin Graham at Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville.  We will be updating the many upcoming events in the weeks ahead.  This is an event you will want to bring your friends to as Franklin and lots of others bring the Gospel Message in word and music to our area.
Bus sign ups are underway for Saturday Night (Youth Night) and Sunday (Family Day).  Bus leaves Saturday at 4:30 and Sunday at 2:00.  The Bus is free!!!  Signup in the Gathering Room after worship.  As of March 30, there are 36 seats left for Saturday night and 40 left for Sunday.

Last Chance for Christian Life and Witness Course is April 16!

There is one last opportunity to participate in the Christian Life & Witness Course offered through the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and the Greater Jacksonville Festival of Hope.  The CHRISTIAN LIFE & WITNESS MAKE-UP COURSE will be held Thursday, April 16 from 6-9 pm at Southpoint Community Church (7556 Salisbury Road, Jacksonville, 32256),  You can take Class 1 (The Effective & Victorious Christian Life) OR Classes 2 AND 3 (The Christian's Witness and The Follow-Up & Care of New Believers).
This course is designed for those who attended the original Christian Life & Witness Course in March, but need to make up either Week one, or week two and three.  If you were not able to attend in March, you can attend this location, attend classes 2 & 3, and be qualified to be a counselor at the Greater Jacksonville Festival of Hope.  
Ten students and eight adults from The Village Church have already completed this course and we are already seeing the fruit from what they have learned.  Don't miss out on this once in a generation opportunity!!

New Ministry to Young Adults Underway

Are you 18-28 and out of high school working or attending college? Then plan on joining our College & Career group!  They meet Sundays from 12-2 p.m. after the 11 a.m. service in modular B. Lunch is served.  Contact Kristin Doolin at 904.982.0397 or via email at [email protected] with questions.  See you there!  The group is currently doing a group study of John Ortberg's book "If You Want to Walk on Water, You've Got to Get Out of the Boat."
And if you have a heart for 18-28 year olds, then we need your help. Whether it is weekly, once a month, or quarterly, we could use your hands and feet.  We will be serving lunch, playing games, and helping this age group stay connected and walking with the Lord. Sign up in the gathering room or contact Kristin.
