Opportunities to Serve at Village

An important part of our faith journey is to serve our community, both at Village and in the world. We believe that God has not only given believers the gift of the Holy Spirit, but gifts to serve the church community as well (1 Cor. 12). Village is a place where members and attenders are encouraged to serve regularly.
