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.

Christian Life and Witness Courses Coming in March

The Billy Graham Christian Life and Witness Course is coming to our area this March.  These are FREE classes where you will receive an in-depth understanding of key biblical principles that form a solid foundation for your faith.  Set up as three two-hour sessions over a span of three weeks, these classes will empower you to share your faith and also qualify you to be a counselor if you choose for the upcoming Greater Jacksonville Festival of Hope with Franklin Graham.
The closest locations to The Village Church for each day of the week are as follows:

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.

A REMINDER...

Under policies initiated in the Spring of 2014, all volunteers working with children (VBS, Children's Programs, etc.) were requested to go through our Child Protection Program.  We now require all adults and youth (6th grade up) to follow these procedures and completion of the Child Safety Course and backgroud checks will be mandatory for serving with VBS.  Forms to enroll in the process are located on our Welcome Table or you can contact Aaron Long for additional information.  Our children thank you.
