UPCOMING MUSIC EVENTS AT VILLAGE CHURCH
You are invited to a fantastic year of concerts and worship services at Village Church!
This year Village Church and the music community celebrate the lasting gifts of the late Mark Ball, director of music from 2001-2016. Through Second Thursday Recitals, frequent beneficiary concerts, the Village Arts Alliance and Sunday morning services, Mark's passion for music and people remains an essential part of the fabric of Village Church.
Most of our concerts are free and family friendly, and many offer complimentary child care. To make your child care reservation, contact Marjean Lindquist at firstname.lastname@example.org or 913-671-2322 at least one week prior to the concert.
Please note: All Village Church main concerts will also be live streamed on our website live broadcast page.
