Welcome to our May newsletter update. This newsletter will be a little different. It will break from the normal pattern of looking only to the month ahead. This time we will begin with a review of our Easter services in April.
EASTER AT VILLAGE GREEN
Our Easter services this year were filled with moments of inspiration, deep reflection, and heartfelt responses from our community. From our candlelight Good Friday service to the cross-focused Easter celebration, the weekend touched many lives. Here are a few pictures from the services.
May 7 – The first Sunday of the month is our regular Communion service. A reminder to pick up your communion cups at the back of the auditorium if you are attending in person and to prepare the elements at home beforehand if you are participating online.
Throughout the month of May we are continuing our series, Why Should I Care About…? Priorities Christians Should Embrace. The topics that we will be delving into are, My Personal Temple, Relationships as God Intended, Growing Open Minds and Open Hearts, and The House that Jesus Built. Hope you plan to join us.
As a reminder, our Life Groups are also in full swing with June 18 being the last week of this session. We will have a break for the summer and restart Life Groups again in the Fall.
DAY CAMPS – 2023
Village Green Community Church is partnering with two camp organizations in July and August 2023, Forest Cliff Day Camps and Adullam Camp, to provide Day Camp opportunities this summer.We also want to make you aware that there are subsidies available. Contact the church for forms by emailing email@example.com. Some forms are being made available at the Welcome Center on Sunday mornings. Time is running short on subsidie submissions as the cutoff date is May 15th.
Forest Cliff Camps will run for two weeks from July 10-14 and July 17-21
Adullum Camp will run from July 31 – August 4
ODDS AND ENDS
- This a reminder of our podcast, Theology Jam, featuring me (Jon Korkidakis) and Matthew Burkholder. You can catch us on any podcast provider.
- We are in the season of nominating new members for the Board of Directors or Board of Elders. A committee has been formed and will be going through the membership list for potential candidates, and they are always open to hearing from you. If you want to put someone’s name forward for either of our Boards, simply email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- This a reminder that we really appreciate it when you share or like the content posted by the church. It helps to give our content greater traction and a wider audience.
- We continue to struggle with volunteers in some key areas. A primary one is the Sunday morning production team which includes sound mixing, live-streaming, and PowerPoint, as well as music and Kids Connection and Youth. Let’s just put it this way. If you need a place to serve, then we have a place for you. Contact the church if you are interested in helping out at email@example.com.
There is your update for May. Thank you for making Village Green an important place for your spiritual growth and well-being. May you be richly blessed.
Yours in Christ;
