Practical Wisdom For Life
Villagers are full of great information and we want to share it!
What is it? The Living Room Talks is an annual event at The Village Church showcasing speakers on topics of which they have a level of expertise. Speakers are chosen from the church community and are given 20-30 minutes to present on a topic that offers “practical wisdom for life”.
Why? The idea behind these talks is to open the church and engage people in non-threatening conversations that would typically happen in a living room, sharing ideas between friends. Past topics include car care, how reading works, end of life preparations and more.
