Village Church of Lincolnshire

Guide for Home Worship: 5/30/21

Singing and Speaking Truth Into the Noise

Our friends and neighbors aren’t always interested in the truth we have to share. Even so, God calls us to proclaim His excellencies to the world. Today, we’ll gather to lift our voices together and to be encouraged by God’s Word in how we can share our faith, especially when we face a tough crowd.

General Announcements

Hour in the Word This Sunday: Join Pastor Casey at 9:30am for a series on evangelism and sharing Christ in how we think, speak, and act in the world. For this final lesson, Pastor Casey talks about sharing Christ in hostile cultural spaces and encourages all followers of Jesus to be bold and wise in sharing Jesus everyday. You can follow the study guide by clicking here: http://evcl.org/the-basics-of-sharing-christ-week-nine/

Bi-Weekly Virtual Prayer Gathering:  This Tuesday night (6/1) at 7:30 PM, we’ll be gathering on Zoom for our bi-weekly prayer meeting. Come join us for a meaningful time of prayer—all from the comfort of your own living room. Zoom details to follow via email. If you have a prayer request or an update, please send it to office@evcl.org.

First, Prayer on June 6th: Join Pastor Casey on June 6th for a time of intentional prayer, with a focus on God’s mission to bring the gospel to the world (through us!). First, Prayer is an honored VCL tradition and a great opportunity to hear God’s people live out their faith together. We will begin promptly at 9:30 Sunday morning in the Great Room.

Church Picnic—Sunday, June 13 following the service.  Whytegate Park is located across the street from the church and features playground equipment, tennis and basketball courts. It has lots of room to spread out and enjoy the outdoors. If you plan to attend, please SIGN-UP at the Information Desk or contact the church office. If your last name begins with A-M bring a salad to share or if N-Z bring a dessert to share. Everything else will be provided. Also remember to bring lawn chairs. Volunteers needed! If you can help set up, help serve, or clean up, please contact the church office (office@evcl.org).

Calling All Graduates! Are you graduating this spring from middle school, high school, college or graduate school? Please let us know so that we can recognize your academic achievements. Please contact the church office office@evcl.org with name and details.

Want to Join Our Church? We will be holding a new members’ class on June 6th and 13th from 9 AM to 10 AM (attendance is required on both Sundays, but we can accommodate make-ups). If you’re interested in becoming a member of VCL, please grab a hold of Pastor Kenny after the service or send an email to ksilva@evcl.org.

Spare Rooms open for families with Small ChildrenAs we’ve seen more and more VCL families (and some new!) return to in-person worship, we wanted to provide some dedicated space for parents of small children during the service. From now until the nursery and 2s-3s ministries are restarted, the nursery, 2s-3s room, rooms 103 and 104 (down the hall toward the Great Room) will be open for parents of small children to have as a separate space during the service. These rooms will be limited to one-family per Sunday, and there will be a clipboard for parents to signal that they used the space so it can be cleaned. Rooms will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Prayer… If you would like for people from our church to pray for you at any time, please send your request directly to prayer@evcl.org. Once approved by one of our pastors, your request will go straight out to our prayer list.

Offering Envelopes: We would encourage you to use last year’s offering envelopes (date not important) if you still have them. If you do not and would like envelopes with your envelop number please contact the church office with the number of envelopes you would need (example: one time a month, every other week, etc.). The Finance Committee appreciates when you use your numbered envelopes as this makes their job more efficient.

If you’re not receiving our emails – please contact the church office at office@evcl.org to be added to our email list. We would be happy for you to receive the information that is forwarded each week. Also any who would like to be added to the “prayer request list” may also contact the church office.

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 office@evcl.org.

Weekly Office: Pastors Kenny and Casey are on Facebook Live at 9:00 a.m. on  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
