Serve Outside The Church / Missions

Be Part of the Mission

We want to equip you and provide opportunities for you to serve outside the church walls and help others. Helping others is at the core of who we are. In fact, it’s so important that it’s part of our church mission – helping people experience Life Change, Life Growth, and Life Purpose! Life Purpose is all about doing what God created us to do, which is to serve others!

Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share.

We want to be an exceedingly generous church giving BIG to help people in need locally, regionally, and globally. Check out Reclaim3d, which exists to reclaim bad circumstances into something beautiful locally, regionally, and globally.

Here’s an easy way you can support the programs to help others: Shop through AmazonSmile and designate Reclaim3d as your charity of choice. Then 0.5% of your purchase will go to Reclaim3d!

Here Are Ways We’re Helping Others

Local and Regional Missions

But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him? Little children, let us not love in word or talk, but in deed and truth.

    Celebrating Special People In Our Community

    We just want to stop and celebrate! We are excited to welcome 125 guests with special needs to Dance the Night Away on May 5, 2023. Guests will enjoy the Red Carpet walk, karaoke, fun games, limo rides and of course dancing. “Buddies” will be provided for each guest to ensure they have a fun and safe time.

    Helping Families Globally

    The Village cares about Minooka/Channahon and the surrounding communities. A lot of families are struggling. 247 kids were served at The Big Give For Kids event in 2022 to help families provide gently used clothes for the new school year for free. Thank you to everyone who donated, sorted and volunteered for this event!

    Stay tuned for information about the Big Give For Kids in 2023.

    Banquet And Golf Outing To Invest In The Community

    Fun, great food, and raising money for our communities is what it’s all about. The event goal was to raise $30,000 in 2022 to provide help to those in the Minooka/Channahon, Seneca, Coal City, and surrounding communities. Mobile food pantries, free oil changes for single moms, the Channahon-Minooka School Backpack Program, and more!

    The total donations raised in 2022 is $31,000. Thank you to everyone who participated, volunteered and donated to help our local communities!
