We’ll discuss discipleship plans for the winter, share a few upcoming events and teaching topics, and pray for each other. Questions?

Worship is often described as ‘response to the Word.’ We have inquired how we as a community can best worship in this time of COVID, where we, instead of watching, can participate in our services, with as much engagement as possible. Our worship response is both personal and corporate–communal. Our services aim to share the hearts of our Villagers, especially while we are physically distanced.

These are response to last week’s sermon, “How a Church Makes Decisions.”

교회내 갈등은 사랑과 존중을 통해 하나돰을 찾아가는 과정을 배우는것이며 궁극적으로 하나님께서 우리에게 주시는 바른 길을 찾아가는 길있다.

“Conflict is natural. What does the Bible say about this? What is God doing here now?”

“When I get in fights I can remember that it’s natural, all Christians do that. Also that my response can change my anger and I’ll let god lead the process. – 4th grade Villager

Take a moment to share your response from this Sunday’s sermon; it can be a few thoughts of reflection addressed to God, a paragraph, a prayer inspired by the teaching. Please consider this as an act of worship, in response to His Word. We share reflections anonymously by adding them to our following week’s service, as our community grows together in Responsive Worship.

Participate in Responsive Worship now.


 

“Unity Paradigm of Missions”, Ephesians 1:8b-10

-Preached by Guest Speaker Jamie Kim

 

Please use these questions based on this week’s sermon as a way to continue in your spiritual growth this week

 

Questions:

 

    • How do we do missions in countries where there is no Christian presence like in North Korea?
    • What does the Noahic covenant and the covenant in Hosea 2 say about creation’s role in God’s salvific plan?
    • What is the best preparation for the North Korea mission considering the unity paradigm looking at Abraham Kuyper’s quote: “There is not an inch, not an inch in the entire domain of our human life of which Christ, who is sovereign of all, does not proclaim ‘Mine.’
    • How can I support missions at Village this year? For example, add missionaries to my prayer list, support a Villager going on a missions trip, increase my giving and dedicate it to missions, etc.
