What’s Happening This Week

Making Change – Stress is Bad

Making Change is about moving in the right direction. Abandoning the excess that weighs you down. Learning to live without stress. Living your life as though tomorrow matters. God wants better for you.

No one ever said, “Ever since I got debt my marriage has been so much better! Ever since I got debt these massively high interest rate credit cards have helped my love life! Every night before I go to bed I say, “Thank You God for debt!” This Sunday we’ll be looking at what the Bible has to say about stress. If you feel any stress in your life, this week is for you! If you know anyone dealing with stress, invite them!

The plans of the diligent lead to profit as sure as haste leads to poverty. Proverbs 21:5 (NIV)


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 us, right where we are, regardless of whether we have been walking with Him our whole lives or the journey has just begun. Lifegroups are a place to strengthen your relationship with Jesus.

Prayer matters. It is a time for you to talk directly with God. Tell him what you're stressed about, thank him for all that he has given you.Make Prayer A Priority

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.

Here are a few other ways you can participate in prayer here at The Village:

  • You can also join in our monthly prayer time on Sundays at 7 am as we pray for our church, our community, and our country. This is open to everyone, just meet in the church gathering space. These happen on the second and 4th Sunday morning of each month. No need to sign up, you can just show up at 7 am.
  • 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. We pray for our church, our leaders, our community, our country, and whatever else is on your heart. You can pray out loud, or you can listen and pray silently. Everyone is welcome on this call – you do not need to be an attendee of The Village.
  • We also have a prayer room, we call it our War Room, that you can use anytime during office hours (M-Th 8:30 am – 4:30 pm, Fri. 8:30 – 12:30 pm).
