Missionaries watch God transform lives through Village Green Ministry
VG TASK FORCE
The new VG TASK FORCE Neighborhood Committee had a great first meeting on February 2, 2014. This group of concerned Village Green residents will meet regularly to brainstorm ideas & make plans to serve our community. The VG TASK FORCE will be the “voice” of Village Green, identifying struggles & needs within our community, then suggesting tangible ways our neighboring church, Frazer, and other community organizations can help meet these needs and reach out with Christ’s love. Approximately 10 members of the Village Green community who love the Lord and care about VG have joined this group!! Please pray with us for this group as God is raising up these leaders from within the community!!
TEEN SMALL GROUPS
Jimmy Barnes is spearheading the addition of Teen Small Groups in VG! These groups will study the basics of salvation and Christianity and hopefully become close enough to be transparent about the struggles and issues they are facing at such a crucial age. The hope is to also get these teens involved in serving their community and city. For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
GROWTH IN ONGOING PROGRAMS
Village Green Tutoring is still going strong with a steady flow of growth and improvements!! We currently have 19 tutors and 23 students attending the tutoring session each Wednesday at 6 PM in Village Green. Eighteen of those students earned a Bowling Field Trip to Bama Lanes (courtesy of owner, Steve Lander) by making improvements on their report cards with 11 of those being A/B honor roll!! God is moving in a mighty way in this group and we are so thankful for all the willing and dedicated volunteer tutors as well as Mr. Lander and other donors who make the reward field trips possible!!! Thank you!!!
VG WOMEN’S BIBLE STUDY
There is wonderful fellowship and growth happening in the Village Green Women’s Bible Study held on Wednesday nights at 6 PM. We meet each week to study God’s Word, pray for one another and offer words of encouragement. One of our sweet ladies has even recently joined Frazer and hopes to be baptized soon!! We have also been blessed by a Pastor/Evangelist from our community who has joined our group and offers much wisdom and encouragement! So excited to see how God is moving in this group!!
VG KIDS BIBLE STUDY
Our Kids’ Bible Study continues to meet every Friday night from 5:30 – 7 PM in the Village Green Clubhouse. As always, this is a great time to volunteer and serve in the Village Green Ministry! We have a steady attendance of 25 to 30 kids who join us each week for a chronological study of God’s Word! Students also hear The Gospel at each and every meeting, and are learning the steps and Bible verses for themselves! Behavior has really improved and distractions have decreased due to the “Reward Store” behavior management system as well as the implementation of a “team” concept with teen table leaders. Please continue to pray with us that the seeds of God’s truth are falling on fertile soil!
