The world today is not what it was six months ago. The events of 2020 have caught many of us off-guard. However, God has not been caught off-guard. He is still at work, just as he has been at every major event in history. And though circumstances change, our church still stands, and possibly stronger than ever before.
It is often said that times of crisis reveal the true nature of things. If that’s true, then we could not be more proud of what our church has been revealed to be. Over the past six months, from our mask distribution efforts to our benevolence fund to our online trivia season to our Village Church Conversations series to all of our kids and youth programs, we have continued to not only survive but also to thrive in this new digital age. There is much to be thankful for.
But God is far from done. We are excited to see what else God has in store for us. If you are visiting our church, we would love for you to get involved also. Here’s how.
We are pre-recording Sunday services and releasing them over Facebook Premiere. These are available to watch every Sunday at 10am at our Facebook page or on our website here. You can either watch these online at home or with friends, or join us in the church building at 3647 Roland Ave for a limited-capacity watch party. All watch party attendees must register in advance, wear masks, and stay six feet apart. You can learn more about our watch party here.
Our fall community groups have started up again! Community groups are small groups of people in our church who meet regularly for discipleship, encouragement, teaching, friendship, accountability, and prayer. See the current listing here.
Monthly Prayer Meeting
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!

Our church has started a new benevolence fund to help those who are economically impacted during this time. So far we’ve been able to give away over $3000 to help people with groceries, utilities, phone bills, and temporary housing. If you’d like to give to this fund, you can do so here via PayPal. If you would like to apply to this fund, you can do so here with this Google form.
If you’d like to stay in the know of what’s going on in our church, you can subscribe to our email list or Google Calendar. Here’s an example of an email that was sent on September 21. If you have any questions about our church, if you have any prayer requests, or if you would like to talk to somebody, please fill out an online Connection Card. God bless.
