Guide for Home Worship: 8/15/21

8.1.21 with lyrics

Waiting on God

For most of us, it’s much easier to work toward our goals than it is to wait for God to work through our circumstances. In today’s service, we’re inviting the Lord to enter into our waiting and do His marvelous work in all our hearts. Pastor Kenny will preach a sermon on Acts 27:1-12 titled, “Sometimes, You Just Have to Wait.”

General Announcements

Congregational Meeting—Immediately after our worship service this Sunday, we will hold a congregational meeting to vote on whether to call Jim Renke to serve as VCL’s next Senior Pastor. Non-members are encouraged to attend, but only members may vote. The meeting will be live-streamed and absentee voting will be allowed. 

Hour in the Word – Jim Stamoolis and Pastor Casey will be leading a series entitled The Basics of Faith in Christ: What Christians believe. If you’ve ever wondered what heaven is like, or why Christians say Jesus is the only way to God, this is the series for you. And, even if you’ve been a believer for a long time, you may be surprised to discover what the Bible says about God, the world, and Christian’s eternal destiny. Join us every Sunday morning 9-10 a.m. in the Great Room. Due to technical issues, we will be recording the lesson and then posting it to YouTube the next week instead of livestreaming.

New Member Applicant: Suzanne Forman has applied for membership at Village Church. Please read her testimony as this is an important step in her application process.

“I grew up in the church and I always knew about Jesus, but I never knew Jesus personally. I had attended the VCL youth group since 7th grade and it had really helped me grow into my faith and make some wonderful friendships that I still have to this day! When I was around 18 I talked to Pastor Lee about getting baptized. At my baptism I accepted Jesus Christ as my personal savior. Since the baptism I’ve also had room to grow in our church family joining the music and AV ministry.”

Bi-Weekly Virtual Prayer Gathering: This Tuesday night (8/17) 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.

Adopt A Youth Group! Want a chance to get to know the younger generation at VCL? Starting this August, the youth group will be starting a new program called adopt a youth group, where you can host a youth group meeting on a Wednesday night at your home. You won’t need to provide anything besides some space and your engagement with the students. Want to know more? Put “Adopt a Youth Group” in the friendship register and we’ll reach out!

Women of VCL – Please save the date for a Kickoff event for Women’s Connections on Saturday, September 11 from 9:30 to 11:30. We’ll be having brunch and fellowship as well as sharing new ministry ideas for all women of the church.

Young Adults Gathering September 11th! The young adults from Village Church are invited to join a joint gathering between North Suburban Church and VCL at Hartmann Park in Vernon Hills on September 11th. We’ll be gathering at 5:30 for a picnic and volleyball (weather permitting). This is a great chance for you to meet more young Christians from the area. Don’t miss it!

Prayer… If you would like 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.

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.
