This Sunday's Online Live-Stream 10am Service!
I am about to do a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.The wild animals will honor me, the jackals and the ostriches; for I give water in the wilderness, rivers in the desert, to give drink to my people, whom I formed for myself so that they might declare my praise. Isaiah 43:19-21
Behold! This Sunday morning, Village Church will do a new thing. For the first time, we will live-stream our worship service on Youtube and Facebook. All are welcome and encouraged to join us online with your computer, tablet, or cellphone for a morning of prayer and scripture, sermon and song, and virtual fellowship.
Join us online this Sunday as we live stream worship at 10:00am. After the live-stream is completed, it will remain available for you to watch whenever you’d like. Just below, you will find links to the live stream, as well as a link for this Sunday’s bulletin, so you can follow along – and sing along!
Although we will not gather in-person for worship at the church this Sunday morning, we are grateful for the innovations which will allow us to gather online. So, join us this Sunday morning on Youtube or Facebook, as we praise our God, who makes a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert. Spirit lead us!
Sean Patrick Coady, Pastoral Resident
10:00 am in the Sanctuary, September - June
Experience worship that lifts your heart with organ and choir, engages your mind with scripture and sermon, and invigorates your spirit with prayer and meditation. 10am worship at Village Church follows a weekly pattern that provides structure for a dynamic and unique worship every Sunday. Services include:
- Rich organ music and choir;
- Both traditional and contemporary hymns;
- An open and affirming welcome no matter where you are on life’s journey;
- Communal prayers of confession and words of assurance;
- Passing of the peace, to greet one another in the spirit of Christ;
- A scripture reading and a sermon;
- Sharing of celebrations and concerns during the prayers of the people;
- An offering of our resources, time, and prayers;
- A benediction to send us off into our weeks and our world.
Through it all, the large, clear windows that open out from our Sanctuary into the center of Wellesley remind us that when we worship, we don’t insulate ourselves from the world, but rather open ourselves to the needs, the hurts, and the joys of the wider community of which we are a part.
After worship, all are invited to Fellowship Hour, where both members and visitors are greeted warmly over a cup of coffee. An information table is available for visitors wishing to learn more about Village Church.
Children attend the beginning of Second Worship with their families, then are invited to leave for church school after the scripture is read.
During select services throughout the year, Second Worship includes special elements such as baptizing both children and adults, receiving new members into our covenant, and commissioning groups as they depart for service projects.
We share Communion at 10am Worship on the first Sunday of every month. On Communion Sundays, pastors and deacons are available to bring Communion to those who, due to disability or personal situation, may not be able to make it to church.
