Care & Support
Life can come with struggles and challenges. You aren't meant to go through them alone. Village Church offers support through classes, groups, and ministries,
When we deepen our friendships, we deepen our faith. One of our priorities is helping people connect in small groups, classes/studies, and special interest groups.
- Small Groups focus on friendship, prayer, and bible study and entail a longer term investment. Some groups also find ways to serve together.
- Classes/Studies focus for a shorter season (4-12 weeks) on a specific topic (financial health, marriage enrichment, spiritual growth, biblical archaeology, etc.)
- Special Interest groups range in length and subject matter. Some are activity-driven and seasonal, some address a stage of life, some focus on a special cause (Hiking, Human Trafficking Awareness, Aviation, Caring for aging parents, etc.)
For more info on Groups at Village Church contact the church office (847.244.6606) or email us (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Little prayer…little fruit. More prayer…more fruit. Much prayer…much fruit!
Prayer must not be our last resort - it must be our first option! We urge everyone at Village Church to pray more for the people and ministries of our church. We doubt that any of us will come to the end of our life here on earth saying, “I prayed too much. I wish I would have prayed less!”

Email Prayer Warriors
This important ministry is perfect for those who have a heart to intercede on behalf of others, but can't always find time in their schedule to meet at our organized prayer times. If you would like to be a part of the prayer chain and receive updated requests from our church family via email, contact Diane (847.244.6606, x188).
Because Village Church takes seriously the ministry of prayer, we are happy to receive your requests and intercede for you! Request prayer by email or call the church office during regular office hours and ask for Diane.
Sunday Prayer Team
Prayer Team members are available, along with the pastor, at the end of the 9 & 10:45am services by the stage to pray with you. If you are in need of prayer, see one of the prayer support team members. If you're interested in serving in the ministry or available to be on a rotating schedule, contact the church office (847.244.6606).
Caregiver Connection provides a means of prayerfully connecting, networking, assisting, educating, and supporting individuals who are challenged to care for family members/individuals. These individuals have significant, acute, or chronic medical needs such as elder care, long-term care, home health care, long term disability, developmental or psychiatric disabilities, or any chronic illness.
If you find yourself in this stage of life, this group is for you. Everyone is welcome!
