Plan A Visit

Service times, directions, and what to expect upon your first visit to Village.

The REGATHERING OF THE CHURCH, is one of the most important events for the people of God. Since March of 2020, we have been on assignment in our neighborhoods and workplaces, and have joined in distantly by way of livestreaming worship. ON MAY 31, VILLAGE WILL REGATHER AT 9 AND 10:30 AM.

Much prayer, thought, discussions with many church leaders has helped as we have developed a strategy to as safely as possible regather. We have four steps for Village Regathering.


STEP ONE

  • Online worship services
  • Online Bible studies and groups


STEP TWO

Online worship continues with REGATHERING WORSHIP ON CAMPUS. Village will use social distancing guidelines and will be regularly cleaning the facilities.

  • REGATHERING for on campus worship
  • Online worship services
  • Online Bible studies and groups

If smaller groups (less than 10) decide to meet in-person, we ask they use all recommended guidelines given by officials (e.g., staying six feet away, wearing masks, using hand sanitizer, avoid touching of face, etc.).

In worship, offering plates will not be passed but will be set up at the doors. Communion will be shared but will be done with packaged elements to be picked up by those entering the worship center. Service times will be approximately one hour in order to meet the needs of those livestreaming the worship experience.


STEP THREE

Worship continues as in previous steps but at this point limited small groups will be permitted to gather on the Village Campus.

  • REGATHERING for on campus worship
  • Online worship services
  • Online Bible studies and groups
  • REGATHERING for small groups (less than 25) on campus


STEP FOUR

At his point Village will operate in a “new normal.” 

  • REGATHERING for on campus worship
  • Online worship services
  • Online Bible studies and groups
  • REGATHERING for ALL small groups on campus
  • Mission Teams form for upcoming opportunities

We will continue to strive for excellence as Village has developed an online community. During these previous months we have seen many join our livestreaming worship from all over the world. 

On campus, as the Village is in full stage regathering, our church family will continue being cognizant of maintaining healthy habits. This means hand purifying stations will be kept and maintained, we will ask that if a person has been sick with a fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath or have been in contact with a person with COVID-19 in the last two weeks that they refrain from the campus regathering and join in by way of livestream.

Getting to know each other

We know meeting someone for the first time can be intimidating, and going to a new church for the first time can be nerve-racking. We want to help make your first experience at Village Church a great one!

SERVICE TIMES

Our two services are identical in style and content. The environment is energetic with a blend of hymns and contemporary music led by the celebration band and choir.


  • Sundays at 9:00am | 10:30am
