Village Church of Lincolnshire

Guide for Home Worship: 1/23/22

Be True

This Sunday we will worship our Lord Jesus through song, prayer and Scripture. Our hope is to find strength for the journey in his presence. The message is from Exodus 32. Some of you may know the golden calf story. But do you know the specific dangers we face in creating our own idols? And do you know more than ever, God wants you to know the joy of staying true to him? If there comes a time when you don’t want to make this journey alone, please join us here at Village Church of Lincolnshire. We’d love the opportunity to walk with you. www.evcl.org If you have prayer needs, or questions please contact Pastor Jim at jimrenke@evcl.org.

General Announcements

New Series on Worship During Hour in the WordJoin Don Hedges at 9am in the Great room as he leads a new series entitled Shaping Light: Christians Gathered in Worship. This series, which goes through February, is a great opportunity to learn more about why we worship, what Christians believe happens in worship, and much more.

The Abundant Life class –  Pastor Jim will lead the class in a 6-week study of God’s Mission in the world.

VCL Women’s Connections:  Thursday Morning Women’s Bible Study—All are welcome to join us for the Bible Study  on Thursday, 9:30 to 11:15 a.m. We’ll be finishing up the book of Galatians during January; I encourage anyone to come even if you weren’t able to be with us in the fall. In addition to examining God’s word we enjoy fellowship, prayer for each other and a monthly concert of prayer led by Jan Carlson. The Spirit is most certainly at work!

In February we’ll begin a study on Women of the Bible with a special emphasis on women leaders. This promises to be an especially engaging study as we’ll take a deeper dive into what scripture has to teach us about our place in God’s kingdom work. I’m excited!

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact Carol Marshall, carolsings3@comcast.net or 847-274-9900.

Welcome Center: We hope you’ve noticed, we frequently have treats to go with our coffee at the welcome center on Sundays. You are invited to contribute at a time that works for you. Some ideas are: a purchased sheet cake, homemade cookies or bars, a bowl of cuties or apples or a salty snack. You may have another idea, I’d love to hear it!
