What To Expect on Sunday Morning

Get the Lay of the Land!


Want to know what it’s like to spend a Sunday with The Village? You’ve come to the right place! Watch our informal tour above so you know what to expect when you walk through our doors, and read about the normal flow for our weekly gatherings below. We hope to see you soon!

What Should You know?

Our volunteers will help you check your children into the right K-Ville class.

  • Plenty of Parking! There’s a ton of free parking along the street and in the big parking lot directly across from The 210. (Here are some driving directions!)
  • Come As You Are! There’s no dress code that could keep you out of the kingdom or that should keep you away from the church.
  • Come Early, Stay Late! Our folks love to mingle, and our space makes that easy. You won’t see too many of us bolting out after the gathering, so stick around!
  • We’ve Got Kids Covered! Newborns through 6th graders are welcome to participate in K-Ville, our age-appropriate Sunday discipleship. We have a cry room if you need it! (Older kids are invited to check out The Bridge on Thursday nights!)

If you have any questions or concerns while you’re with us, visit the Connect Desk directly in front of the main entrance.


The Order of Sunday Gatherings

Call to Worship & Welcome

At 10:30am sharp, the band will call us to worship with an opening song. Somebody will welcome those who have gathered and setup the rest of the morning.


Corporate Worship

The band will lead us in worship through song, prayer, and Scripture as we prepare to hear God’s Word preached.


Focal Passage Reading

During most gatherings, we dedicate time to read that morning’s focal passage before the sermon begins. We stand during the reading out of reverence for God’s Word.


Sermon

One of our pastors will come up to preach. Our sermons are generally around 40 minutes long, and we generally alternate between thematic series and walking verse-by-verse through books of the bible. You can view previous sermon series and listen to audio on our website.


Time of Response

Because God’s Word is living and his Spirit is active, we want to give everyone time to reflect and respond through prayer, communion, and trusting all the more (or for the first time!) in Jesus. We offer gluten-free unleavened bread and grape juice as our communion elements.


Closing Announcements & Benediction

Around 11:45am, someone will close out the gathering with announcements and a good word, also called a benediction. We often symbolize our affirmation of the benediction by raising our hands. Feel free to hang out afterwards and fill out a Connect Card!
