It has been four and a half months since we have closed our church building to the public. During this time, we have been forced to practice what we say to ourselves all the time—that the church is not a building, but it is the people of God. Over the past several months, we have continued to hold online Sunday services, we have gathered in weekly online community groups, we have hosted numerous online panels on topics like racism and mental health, and we have spearheaded numerous outreach opportunities, from providing financial assistance to distributing face masks. Village Church Hampden has adapted, and we are still well and alive.
During this season of instability and uncertainty, let us continue to “hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful” (Hebrews 10:23). Although our physical interactions may be limited, let’s try our best not to be isolated from one another. There are still different ways to get involved in what’s going on in our church.
We are pre-recording Sunday services and releasing them over Facebook Premiere every Sunday at 10am. We are requesting that you please stay at home and watch via our service at our Facebook page or on our website here. If you feel safe enough to visit other people’s homes, you are also invited to watch services together with other people in the church.
Many of our community groups have gone virtual! If you haven’t been in the habit of regularly attending a community group, maybe this is the time to hop right in. See our current listing here, find a time that works for you, and email the corresponding email contact to get instructions on how to connect online.

We are hosting church-wide prayer meetings over the Zoom app on the first Wednesday of every month. Every meeting we will have a different topic of prayer. Tune in with the details below on the first Wednesday of the month at 7pm. We look forward to praying with you all there!
