What’s Happening This Week

Can you think of any significant moment that completely altered the trajectory of your life?Dream Big – How to Step into God’s Dream

Can you think of any significant moment that completely altered the trajectory of your life? Something happened and your life was never the same again. That something could have been something great, or maybe it was something really hard. Well,  all of it was God preparing you for this moment. Deep inside every single one of us, there is a longing for something more, something significant. This series is going to help you figure out why God made you and help you define your purpose.

How many big dreams have you had for yourself throughout your life? As kids, we dream of what we want to be when we grow up, where we want to live, and maybe who we want to marry. Of course, as we get older and mature those dreams change and evolve. The question is, do they line up with what God has planned for you? For the last part of the series Dream Big, Nate is going to talk about how important it is to work within God’s big dream for you.

If you are pleased with me, teach me your ways so I may know You and continue to find favor with You. – Exodus 33:13 (NIV)

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


Find out when groups are meeting during the week and what Village Adventures are up to…

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.
