Start your summer Sundays off right with communion, song, scripture, and more. During the summer, Village Church comes together for a single worship service similar to the First Worship experience.

In addition to our pastors, Village Church members join in the leadership of these services through music, prayer, and preaching. We worship in the summer as an intergenerational family, and children are invited to participate fully in worship in whatever way is right for them.

Childcare for all ages is available in The Family Room which is located on the main floor outside of the sanctuary. During this time there will be free play, Veggie Tale movies and snacks.

Summer Worship includes:

  • Music on instruments as varied as the piano, acoustic guitar, bass, flute, and drums;
  • Confession and prayer practices such as the sinking of stones (to let go of our sins and failings) and the floating of flowers (to lift up our praises and thanksgivings);
  • Communion offered every Sunday, received while gathered together around a common table;
  • Scripture readings and messages that connect our ancient faith and our contemporary lives.

After Summer Worship services, worshipers are invited to enjoy conversation and a glass of punch outside on the Portico.

Ecumenical worship with other local churches also takes place in August at 10:00 am on Sundays. Please check the calendar for upcoming services.
