Other news

  • Believe it or not, it’s almost time for the annual soup supper. Pastor Eric is once again throwing down the gauntlet putting his tomato chicken against all challengers. All kidding aside this is a fun time for the community to stuff ourselves not only with food but with joy. Nov 22nd and 6pm. Sign up sheet will be passed around starting this Sunday, you can sign up to bring soup, bread or dessert.
  • Fallow Month – December 2014: many of you know that each December The Village practices what we call fallow month. This simply means that we shut down scheduled group events such as pilgrim groups and monastic communities in order to encourage you to spend more time with your family and friends. This also creates space for celebration and reflection on Advent without additional busyness. We will still have Vespers with a focus on Advent. Alsop, our candlelight service will take place on December 21st. During this service we sing Christmas Carols and we tell the Christmas story, eat cookies and drink Hot Chocolate. No dinner is served however you are encouraged to go to dinner with each other

That’s all I have folks
