On Sunday night we had our Spring Village Gate for 2017. And man, we had a great group of folks join us! Thanks to everyone who was able to make it out, and a special thanks to Brittany Cox for making sure we were all well-fed!
If you WEREN’T able to make it out on Sunday night, don’t fret! We’ll have our Fall round of The Village Gate on Sunday, October 29 from 5:00-8:00pm. (Learn more on our membership page.)
Sunday’s group was also the first to go through a brand new set of Village Gate content. For the last several years, we’ve used the same content for our Village Gate classes and as our go-to document for our annual member alignment and recommitment. The content has served us well, but it hasn’t necessarily “matured” at the same rate as we have! An update was long overdue.
We’re excited to share the new content here with you, whether or not you’re a covenant member of The Village. If you are, you won’t find anything surprising here. It should reflect who we are and what we’re about as a church even more accurately than the old content did, and it’ll reinforce what you hear us say week-in and week-out here at The Village. If you’re not a covenant member, we hope nothing surprises you, either! It’ll give you a good insight into the high points of what makes The Village Church tick, no matter how long you’ve been hanging around us.
A few things to note:
- Sections: There are four sections, plus an addendum on the meaning of membership and a copy of the membership covenant. These sections broadly cover The Village Church in a nutshell, Gospel, Community, and Mission.
- Supplemental Resources: On the right side of every page, we have some links to related resources from The Village and elsewhere. Those are meant to help you learn, grow and connect in greater ways with that page’s content.
- “Living Document”: This version of the Village Gate material is a living document that we’ll update and revise as needed with new content, resources, etc. It’ll maintain the same link / URL, so no matter what the current version is, you’ll be able to find it at the link we provided here. We’ll also make this available here on our website at myvillagechurch.com/membership.
We hope this content is helpful for you! If you have any questions, comments or concerns, don’t hesitate to reach out!
