What’s Happening This Week

Family Matters – God is Good!

Have you ever wondered how God is working through the church? Don’t miss this Thursday! We’ll be sharing the different ways God is changing lives right here in our church home. Don’t forget, no service this Sunday morning, if you can’t make it, Thursday’s service will be posted on Youtube.

It gives us new life to know that you are standing firm in the Lord. How we thank God for you! Because of you we have great joy as we enter God’s presence.- 1 Thessalonians 3:7-9 (NLT).


Thursday: 6:30 pm

The Village Christian Church in Minooka is consolidating 4 services into one big Family Night on May 24th. This is open to all in the community!Family Night May 24th – No Church May 27th

It’s May and that means Memorial Day weekend is not too far away! This year we’re mixing it up and will be having a HUGE Family Night on Thursday, May 24th and NO CHURCH on Sunday, May 27th.

Why? We miss seeing everyone together. Our church has grown so much, which is wonderful because that means more people are coming into a relationship with Jesus. The downside to that is we now have 4 services and never get to see everyone together. So this year we’re mixing it up in an effort to have a great big Family Night where everyone can worship together.

What? There will be games before and after the 6:30 pm service – it will be a time to worship together, have fun and hang out, and meet some new friends. We’re going to record this Thursday service on Youtube and then on Sunday church will be closed. We’ll encourage everyone who wasn’t able to make the Thursday service to watch on Youtube.

If you’re unable to make it Thursday, the service will be available to watch on Youtube.

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.
