Village Baptist Church

Sunday, Feb. 10, begins a new year at Village Baptist Church for small home groups called LIFT Groups (Living in Fellowship Together). The LIFT groups meet the second and fourth Sundays of each month from February through October, excluding the month of June. Participant signup is currently in process and all are welcome to participate. There are three options to choose from: Sunday right after church with a meal, 5:30 p.m. Sunday with a meal, and 5:30 p.m. Sunday without a meal. The small groups meet in participants' homes and everyone contributes by bringing food. Once everyone has enjoyed fellowship together, participants gather to discuss questions which explore the recent sermon and scripture text in more detail and how they can apply this to their lives. Following the discussion time, the group prays together for whatever concerns are mentioned. In these LIFT Groups, participants experience life together as they fellowship with one another, grow in their faith together, and pray for each other. While anyone is invited to be part of this small group, hearing the Sunday sermon enables meaningful discussion in the group. The three-month preaching series, starting Feb. 10, is called "Leaving a Legacy" based on the passion of Jesus Christ. There are signup sheets available at the church or you can call the office at 479-855-7775 to register.
