Alpha is an engaging, interactive experience to help people explore and understand the Christian faith. It is a great opportunity for believers to solidify the foundation of their faith and for seekers to investigate Christianity with others. In each session, there will be time to make and build friendships, experience relevant teaching,  answering basic questions about Christianity, and openly discuss the issues to help people move forward in their spiritual journey.

Prayer Walk

Prayer Walk

  • Wednesday, September 6

  • 4pm in the parking lot area

Everyone is welcome! Bring a blanket or chair and plan to stay for the hot dog picnic!

Come celebrate as a church family at our annual outdoor baptism service.


GO! Together

Let's come together with other Gurnee churches to reach out to our neighbors.

  • Memorial Day through Labor Day
  • Host a BBQ, picnic, dinner, lunch, or it could even be s'mores around the fire pit.

Sometime this summer (Memorial Day-Labor Day) invite your neighbors over to chat, play a game or to eat...just take time to connect.

The goal of this event is to move our neighbors from distrust to trust of Christians and to move our church people from an idea to action.

How many people will sign up? How many people will step up to the challenge? Let's get out there and get to know the people in our neighborhoods!

Mentor Ministry

Village Church of Gurnee is committed to discipling people to help them follow Jesus more. We see that happen best when people are in community with one another, challenging and encouraging each other to grow, serve, and reach out to others. There are times this happens very naturally and organically. At other times we need a formal structure to work out ways in which we should grow. For that reason we have created men's, women's, and marriage mentoring ministries.

Become a Mentor





  • Help people become more like Christ in all aspects of life.
  • Connect individuals (or couples) together to take next steps in maturity, purpose, and calling.

What is the Mentor Ministry?

This ministry is designed to connect spiritually mature women with women, men with men, or couples with couples, who are less experienced in their life or spiritual journey. You will meet one-on-one or in small groups to deepen relationships and deepen your faith.

Mentoring provides accountability, encouragement, and challenge in our walk with God. It is more than a Bible study. We seek God's wisdom through life-on-life sharing. We pursue God together in prayer. We commit to apply God's Word to everyday life.

The goal is to grow in faith and intimacy with the Lord reflecting Christlike character and building disciples of Jesus Christ

This ministry is available to regular attendees of Village Church.
