Village Church will host its activities on the day of October 27.

Last year, more than 600 people of all generations took part in a variety of service activities at Village and across the city. 

This year at Village on Mission, participants are invited to partake in the Gathering worship service at 5 p.m., enjoy fellowship and a pizza dinner and then from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., take part in a variety of service projects.  Projects include the following:

  • Packing sack lunches for City Union Mission
  • Creating Thanksgiving cards for food pantry clients receiving baskets
  • Stuffing socks with snacks for the homeless

In addition, volunteers have the option of joining one of our partner churches and participating during the week in activities ranging from yardwork to preparing a meal.  Participants can check out the variety of opportunities at Village and at participating churches on the Be the Church website at bethechurchservice.com.

All ages are welcome. During the Sunday activities, food is provided to all who participate, and child care is available at Village on Mission (call 913-671-2322 or email [email protected] by October 21 to reserve).  If a service project on this registration is full, we have plenty of other options for service work.
