Stay in the know as you go about your week


 

Give the Gift of Hope

During this advent season, we encourage you to give hope, peace, love, and joy to those in need. We’ve identified several organizations that we believe Villagers can help make a significant impact with this holiday season:

• Beaverton Resource Center
• Know Me Now
• Youth for Christ Lebanon – New Sewing Center
• Coastal Fellowship & HBI
• Ignis Community

You can give to this organization through the Sunday service offering, Village App, or on our website from November 28 to December 31. View the full flyer here

 

All-Church Directory Photographs

We are excited for the next stage of creating an all-church directory, and we need your participation! Starting this Sunday, we hope to photograph every individual, couple and family who calls Village home. Please refer to the schedule below for when you and your family can visit the photo booth in the Columbia Rooms. There is an option at the photo booth to mark whether you want your photo public in the directory or just used internally with Village staff.

November 28 – Last names beginning with A-G
December 5 – Last names beginning with H-K
December 12 – Last names beginning with L-R
December 19 – Last names beginning with S-Z
*If you are unavailable the Sunday you are assigned, please stop by any Sunday.

Thank you in advance for participating! We look forward to capturing your smiling faces. Questions?

Giving

Give today! Your faithful support is appreciated. It’s safe, quick, and secure to give online, but if you prefer to mail a check, you can send it to us at 330 SW Murray Blvd, Beaverton, OR 97005. For gifts of stocks, IRAs, or other creative methods, please contact Patty, Finance Manager.


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.

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 your reflections anonymously by adding them to our following week’s service, to encourage our community to grow together in Responsive Worship.

Participate in Responsive Worship now.
