Welcome to this week’s instalment of our newsletter. It is just one way we try to keep you informed and connected to our community here at Village Green.
If you were part of the service on January 31st you know we were in the midst of a powerful interview with Ashley Zietsma when the software for our live feed crashed. We are making the video available here if you missed it. The response to this interview has been overwhelming and we want to thank you for the notes of encouragement and prayers that were sent. May this interview richly bless you!
Interview with Ashley Zietsma
This is a reminder that this Sunday (February 7th) is Communion Sunday. Please have the elements ready at home (bread and cup) if you wish to participate. As a reminder we celebrate an “open communion”, meaning anyone who has made a profession of faith in Christ is welcome to join.
A New Series Coming February 14th
You are not going to want to miss this series that looks at the life of Elijah, a man of God whose faith carried him through political turmoil, a devastating natural disaster, religious tensions and much more.
So much of his life helps us see practical applications for our present day realities, so we hope you plan to join us for this 5-part series of Elijah: Faith for Turbulent Times!
Daniel and Christine Kinchlea Featured on Corus Radiothon
Be sure to tune in today (Friday, Feb 5) to hear Daniel’s interview on: 980 CFPL at 10:20 am and FM 96 at 11:00 am.
This is one of Daniels favourite events of the year for Children’s Health Foundation! He was so excited to participate again in Corus Radiothon and share his story. A HUGE thank you to everyone who donated to his fundraiser so far! We blew up our goal of $1000, if anyone would still like to contribute there is a short time left! We cannot thank you all enough for supporting our boy and our family and the hospital we use so much. You can grab the donation page here.

Here’s another gentle reminder to remember to share content from the church. It helps us reach more people and touch many more lives. The interview with Ashley Zietsma is but one example of the content we are going to be producing that reaches into people’s homes and helps them to grow deeper in love with Christ.

One More Thing!
I recently read a quote from Christian author, A. W. Tozer that I though was a good reminder and a good encouragement for all to hear.
“If you burn down the church building and drive away all the people, you have not disturbed Christian worship at all. Keep a Christian from entering the church sanctuary and you have not in the least bit hindered his worship. We carry our sanctuary with us. We never leave it.”
We are the church. And as the church, why not take some time this week to pray for someone, call someone, text someone, email someone, or reach out in whatever way is best for you and just connect as a way of encouraging them. Imagine if everyone who receives this newsletter would reach out to one person this week, what a difference it would make.
Let’s make a difference in someone’s life today!
Until next time, stay safe and stay healthy.
