Get Off Your Donkey
This series is based on the story of the Good Samaritan who got off his donkey to help someone in need. Sometimes we want to help, but don’t know what to do, we think we’re too busy, or we don’t have the right skills. We assume someone else will take care of it. During this series we’ll be focusing in on where we can help, how to do it and why it’s important.
What might God be calling you to do right now? What is it that breaks your heart? And who might you be willing to serve without any strings attached?
But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him. – Luke 10:33-34

Lifegroups are a place to take a break from the busy demands of everyday life with a group of friends, a place to share, laugh, and serve together. It’s also where you can begin to understand the Bible and how it applies to your life. Love yourself enough to set yourself up for success, get connected in a Lifegroup this week!
Prayer is where it all starts. Prayer is important. The Village is committed to prayer and believes strongly in its power.
Prayer is a time for you to be alone with God and talk to Him as your friend. A time to tell Him what’s on your heart, what you’re thinking, feeling and struggling with. Think of it not as an obligation, but an opportunity. An opportunity to thank your creator for all that you have. We encourage you to take the time to pray every day. Ask for miracles, ask for God’s power to be shown.
Join in our prayer call this week at 7 am Monday – Friday! It’s easy – just call 605-477-2100 and enter the code 867402.
