What’s Happening This Week

Summer at The Village is happening at The Village Christian Church in MInooka, IL on Thursdays at 6:30 pm and Sundays at 8:30, 9:30 and 11 am.Summer at The Village – Pray Specifically

How many times have you prayed for world peace or to end world hunger? It is heartbreaking to see people whose lives are affected by war and famine, or any other disaster. You have compassion for them, but have no idea what you can do for them. What if you started to pray for God to use you to be a part of the solution? Check out service this Thursday night or Sunday morning, guest speaker, Greg Boldt is going to teach about how to open yourself up to be used by God for what He intends to do.

After they prayed, the place where they were meeting was shaken. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God boldly. – Acts 4:31  (NIV)


Thursday: 6:30 pm
Sunday: 8:30, 9:30, and 11:00 am

Stay and Play

Incredible worship and a message about dealing with the big life events, then hang outside, grab some good food and play a friendly game with some friends. That’s just a sampling of what will behappening on Thursday nights all summer long.

It’s July already! That means hot dogs the first 3 weeks and burgers the last 2 weeks for $2.00 and Kickball. It’s a great time to invite that friend or coworker to church – come for a relaxed service and stay after for some fun!

Operation Christmas Child – Christmas in July

Stop by the table in the lobby and pick up a shoebox. Fill it up with a wow toy, school supplies, hygiene supplies and a note with a picture for the child who will receive the gift. There are certain items that should not be packed in the shoeboxes. Pray for the boy or girl, who probably has never been given a gift in their life. Bring the filled box back to The Village by July 31st with $9.00 to cover the cost of shipping. We will take it from there!


Lifegroups are a place to have fun with friends.Strengthen Your Relationship With Jesus In A Lifegroup

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. Lifegroups are a place to grow in your relationship with Jesus, a place to learn the stories that Jesus taught and how they apply to your life today. The Bible is a living, breathing way for God to communicate with you, right where you are, regardless of whether you have been walking with Him your whole life or the journey has just begun.
