Village Green Update – July 9, 2020

This week’s newsletter is here so sit back, relax, and take the 5 minutes to catch up on the happenings at Village Green.

Kids Connection

There will be a special announcement this Sunday regarding Kids Connection. Teachers will be contacting parents this week to make them aware of some exciting developments.

We care about the spiritual well-being of all our kids, and our desire is to connect them in practical ways with God. As a parent, you too must be eager to see your kids develop in their walk with Jesus and we are doing our best to help in that process.

We also continue to make available the curriculum to our Kids Connection program as supplied by Orange. On their ParentCue app you will see their newest offering of videos, resources, and parent guides.

You can get it all here.

Date for Re-Gathering

Village Green will be resuming Sunday morning services on August 9th. We are preparing the building for reopening and over the next number of weeks will be finalizing all the protocols.

If you are interested in coming to the services we are asking that you contact the office with your intent to attend at office@villagegreenchurch.com.

Priority will be given to those who do not have internet access or the inability to engage the live streaming services etc. Our plans for regathering is also dependant upon the continued allowance from the government concerning public gatherings. We may see further stages of the provinces reopening plans released by August.

Lastly, we will not be approving the in-person meeting of Life Groups, Bible Study Groups, Youth Group or any other church related gathering. The recent rise is Covid cases has us moving forward cautiously and the Elders feel the opening of these groups would be premature at this time. Thank you for your patience, prayers, and understanding.

Forest Cliff Camp

We have had a long and mutually beneficial relationship with Forest Cliff Camp. Many from our church have been campers, camp leaders, or part of the support teams over the years. The impact of this ministry cannot be underestimated. We have such confidence in this ministry, that beginning next summer, Forest Cliff will be running our summer Day Camp here at Village Green.

But as you can imagine, the pandemic has caused them to shutter all physical camps for 2020.  This has put them in a compromised financial position so they are asking for any support at this time. If you are able, consider helping with a financial gift so they can resume ministry from a position of health when the time arrives.

2020-2021 Budget

If you are interested in receiving a copy of this year’s budget, please contact the office at office@villagegreenchurch.com. If you have any questions or concerns, you can contact the Board Chair, Robert Pereira at boardchair@villagegreenchurch.com.
