Guide for Home Worship: 1/3/21
The Many Become One
Happy New Year! Join us this Sunday as we praise the God who welcomes and unites people from every tongue, tribe, nation, and people into the one body of Christ. Pastor Kenny will be leading us back into the book of Acts (15:22-35) with a sermon titled “Lessons in Unity.”
Thank you! On behalf of the entire staff, I (Kenny) would like to thank everyone who so generously contributed to this year’s staff Christmas gift. Especially in a year when we’ve felt so disconnected from the people of our church, it means more than I can say to receive this expression of your appreciation. May the Lord bless you all as we mark the beginning of this New Year, and may He continue to bless us all so richly—even on the heels of a year that, for so many, has felt very much like a curse. -Pastor Kenny
Sunday School is now “Hour in the Word.” Join Pastor Casey this Sunday for the first study of 2021 entitled “Growing in Virtue in 2021” from 9:30-10:15 in the Great Room and online. We are calling this time “Hour in the Word,” and for the rest of 2021, we’d love your help in selecting the series we teach. If you’d like to help, click here and fill out this VERY short survey and let Pastor Casey know what you’d like to study in 2021.
VCL Women: Our Next Meeting – Our Thursday group will resume meeting once again on January 7, 2021. January 7th would be a great opportunity to come and find out what we’re all about! We hope you can join us. We’ll have a “special” on the 7th, with our first lesson on January 14. At that time we will begin our video/book series entitled Breathe by Priscilla Shirer. We will also be back to our normal schedule of 9:30-11:00. And, as always, we will be observing Covid guidelines. Between now and then you may purchase the book from the church office for $12 (exact change or check made payable to Village Church of Lincolnshire). Please call the church office before coming over to buy a book. And for more info contact Karen Flatebo 847.962.6784 or email@example.com. We hope to see you January 7!
Would you like to use the Great Room? The Great Room is now available for groups of 25 or less to use throughout the week. To keep things safe and sanitary, you’ll need to reserve a time and follow a set of guidelines we’ve developed. For more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Not-So Daily Office: Pastors Kenny and Casey are on Facebook Live at 9:00 a.m. on Tuesday and Thursday. During this time they will read a scripture passage and have a time of prayer. Copies of these times of worship will then be posted on our website: evcl.org/daily-office
