COVID-19 Update

Updated on March 22, 2021

The world today is not what it was a year 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. Since March 2020, from our mask distribution efforts to our online trivia season to our Village Church Conversations series, we have continued to not only survive but also to thrive in this new digital age. There is much to be thankful for.

But now we are gradually entering into a new phase. We are slowly doing things in person, while continuing to engage with those who regularly tune in online (to learn more about our transition to live services, see our most recent email update from March 11, 2021). We are excited to see what else God has in store for us this year. If you are visiting our church, we would love for you to get involved also. Here’s how.

Sunday Gathering

Join us every Sunday for our Sunday gatherings. These days, most of the service is pre-recorded, but sometimes the preaching is done live. You can watch it on Sundays at 10am at our Facebook page or on our website here. You can either watch these online at home, or you can join us in the church sanctuary on the second floor of 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 and register for our watch party here.

Community Groups

The church is not a building, but it is the people. Therefore, church attendance doesn’t just consist of tuning in on Sundays, but developing relationships with other Christians. One of the best ways to do this is through community groups, small groups of people in our church who meet regularly for discipleship, encouragement, teaching, friendship, accountability, and prayer. Each one looks different from one another. Some meet 100% online, and some have started to meet in person. See the current listing here.

Monthly Prayer Meeting

We host church-wide prayer meetings on Zoom on the first Wednesday of every month at 7pm. These are great opportunities to meet and to pray with other people in the church. We look forward to seeing you there!

Benevolence Fund

Our church has started a new benevolence fund to help those who have been economically impacted during this time. One person was recently released from prison and needed assistance with food. Another person’s house burned down and needed a temporary place to stay. And yet another person lost her job and needed help with her BGE bills. Our mercy ministry has been able to help all of these people, and dozens more. 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 to receive help, you can do so here with this Google form.

Email List and Social Media

There’s a lot going on in our church, and it can be difficult to keep track of it all. If you’d like to stay in the know, you can subscribe to our email list, or you can follow us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.

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, and someone will get in touch with you. We hope to meet you soon. God bless.
