Here is this week’s latest newsletter. There are some updates from last week’s release as well as a PDF of the regathering protocols for those wanting to attend physical services when they begin on August 9th.
As we plan we want to stress three standard precautions that we will be enforcing as part of our regathering. They are as follows:
- Physical distancing
- Wearing a mask
- Washing/sanitizing of hands as well as the sanitization of all high contact areas.
For a full of our protocols you can grab our VG-Reopening Protocols 2020.
If you are interested in coming to the services we are asking that you contact the office with your intent to attend at email@example.com.
August will soon be here and the first Sunday of the month is our Communion service. If you want to participate please be prepared with elements for your family at the August 2nd service.
Two Areas of Need
The church needs you on Sunday mornings when we regather, especially if you work in the worship, AV, audio, or live streaming teams. We will not be able to bless others or deliver a great online experience if we don’t have people utilizing their gifts. If you can lend a hand, please let the office know. Any time you can give would be appreciated.
The second area is on the Strategic Communications Team (you may know it as the announcement time). We are looking to expand the team so if you feel it is an area where you can contribute please let the office know. We are looking for people who can communicate well and highlight important church events.
You can contact the office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Make sure to stay connected with our new Sunday morning live stream access from Kids Connection. It may be just what your children need?
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.
Mission Services Needs Our Help!
Mission Services is in need of clothing and we have already had one drop off at the church. Thank you for the many who brought in clothing to help their cause. They need clothing for all needs, men, women, and children.
If you can help, please bring your clean and laundered donation to the church on this date,
- Tuesday July 28 – between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm
The doors will be open and we will have a designated spot for you to drop off your donation. We will be supplying hand sanitizer and a clean pathway for you to enter the building.
Your Story, Our Church!
There are people struggling right now, or trying to manage the weight of responsibilities that have been heightened in this new reality. Others are wavering in their faith while others are barely managing to keep it together.
Your story may be just what they need to hear that they are not alone in this fight. That God loves them and they are connected to a church that loves them! Would you consider blessing our church by telling us your story? You can do it by video, or you can write a note that I can read an excerpt on Sundays. I will be posting the full testimony starting next week in this newsletter.
Here is what I would love for you to do. Answer either question – How has Village Green blessed you during this time, or, What has God been teaching you during this time?
If you are open to sharing your story, you can send it to email@example.com
As August approaches, we will be taking a break from our Life Groups in order to prepare for September. Therefore, no material will be produced for the month.
How to Study the Bible – Now into its FINAL Week – Week 16!

Ways to Give
A reminder that you can now use firstname.lastname@example.org to make e-transfers to the church. If you do use this option, please make sure we have an address on file so we know where to send the receipt. We also have a PayPal portal on our website: villagegreenchurch.com. You can also drop off your offerings through the mail slot at the church. It is checked on a regular basis.
Stay strong, stay healthy and stay connected.
