Reaching our community
Why do we serve? It's a form or worship! Serving other in our church or in our community is something God calls us to do.
If you have question on how you want to get involved, contact Pastor Brandon.
Bridges Out Of Poverty Class
- Tuesday, February 9, 16, 23
- $12/person (covers book cost)
- Via Zoom
To help us serve people better, consider signing up for the class, Bridges out of Poverty.
We are often unaware of the “hidden rules” that govern many aspects of life for us all. People living in poverty are often in survival mode. Support systems taken for granted in the middle class and wealthy are largely nonexistent. Understanding differences helps us to build relationships with patience, generosity, and without judgment.
This is a great class for highschool and older. Participants will receive the Zoom link prior to the first class.
Village Church finds many ways to reach out to people in need who live in Gurnee and the surrounding area. As we seek to meet people's physical needs, we pray that our acts of service will give us added opportunities to meet people's spiritual needs.
