Villager’s Alive! is the ministry of Senior Adults at Village. It is our privilege to serve the fastest growing segment of our population – the “60 and better.” Since the summer of 1985, America has had more people who are 65 and older than 18 and younger! The number of persons over the age of 60 years is growing three times faster than the population at large. 85% of Senior Adults in our churches today indicate a desire for a more vital and meaningful Christian faith. This is what Villager’s Alive! is all about. The Pastor to Senior Adults at Village is Pastor Bob Walker. For further information regarding the Villager’s Alive! Ministry and how you can be a part of it, contact Pastor Bob in the church office.

A Life Group is a supportive group of people who meet regularly to both discover and express Christian love and friendship. Learn life-changing truths from God’s Word as you connect with a small group of friends who want to encourage you and need your encouragement. These groups meet at various times throughout the week. Please visit our Life Group page here for more info.
Sunday mornings provide several opportunities to join classes of folks primarily age 60 and up for Bible Study and fellowship, in particular the Koinonian, Maranatha, and Bridge Builders classes. Please visit the “Classes” page at the Village University site (VU is Village’s program of adult education) by clicking here.
Special events are planned to provide opportunities to fellowship with one another and reach out to unchurched friends. To find out about upcoming Villager’s Alive! Ministry events, visit our Events & Announcements page.
“Soup-R” Tuesday Lunch This once a month luncheon is held every third Tuesday of the month at Village from September through May.

Join us at 12:00 noon in the Fireside Room. Sign-ups are available at the Information counter and in Sunday morning classes.
