NOW & TOMORROW, VILLAGE CHURCH is a campaign that the leadership of the church has been preparing for, praying about and planning carefully for over three years. From Sept. 7-Oct. 12, we will walk through this new tomorrow that we believe God is calling Village Church to embrace. Rev. Tom Are, Jr. explains more in the video message below.

 

FLU SHOTS will be given from 5-6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 15,  in Room 230 and from 9-11 a.m.on Sunday, Oct. 19 in Friendship Hall. Most insurance is accepted. 

FAITH AND FAIRNESS FORUM - Join us for a Conversation about Income Inequality sponsored by the Social Witness and Advocacy Task Force of Village Church from 8:30 a.m.-noon on Saturday, Oct. 18, in Friendship Hall.

When it comes to caring for the least of our sisters and brothers, the Gospel is clear – do it!  Throughout the scriptures people of faith are called upon to provide for the needs of their neighbors.  Supporting a fair, livable wage is one way we can do so.  Join us for this forum as we learn more about pay checks and people’s needs and as we collectively engage in advocating for less oppression and more opportunity.

Speakers include Karen Wulfkuhle, executive director of United Community Services of Johnson County (UCS), Peter Eaton, an economics professor at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, Terrance Wise, a Kansas City fast food worker who has been active in the movement for obtaining a living wage for area fast food workers, Reverend Susan G. McCann, rector of Grace Episcopal Church in Liberty, Missouri. The morning will also include an income equality simulation. The event is free and open to the public.
