Do You Really and Truly Choose God? - Cheri Holdridge - 11/9/2014



VILLAGE KIDS, age 4 through 4th grade, will be in worship through the opening music and then our Village Kids leader, Megan Kemerley, will escort them to the Village Kids room.  Parents or guardians, please pick up your children at the Village Kids room immediately following the service.  Supervised child-care is also provided for children 3 and under with Dana Rood.

DIAPER SHOWER – Michelle Roberts and Tonya Koenig have welcomed James and Owen to their family.  Some of you had the pleasure of meeting the twins last Sunday.  We will be having a diaper shower for them on Sunday, November 16th after worship.  Michelle and Tonya are asking for size 1 and 2 diapers. 

LET’S FEED OTHERS – One opportunity to help feed others is at Seagate Foodbank's annual "Stuff the Truck" event on Friday, November 21 at the Walt Churchill Markets in Maumee and Perrysburg.  Volunteers are needed to load trucks with turkeys and other donated Thanksgiving dinner items for shifts running from 6 am to 6 pm.  Please contact Patti Lusher at if you are interested in helping out.  There is also a sign up sheet on the bulletin board in the lobby. 

 Another opportunity is that The Village will be collecting non-perishable Thanksgiving-type food for the St. Louis Soup Kitchen on upcoming Sundays. Needed are boxed dressing, canned vegetables, boxed potatoes, gravy mix packets, anything to serve on Thanksgiving.  Please bring items in and they will be delivered.  If you want to donate money to buy frozen turkeys, please talk to, email ( or call Patti Lusher (419-349-6333).


DO YOU LOVE MOVIES? Want to help new people make their way to the Village? The Village’s Visibility Team is putting together a film and discussion series. Contact Kurt Young at 419-215-9550 or to be a part of the fun.

“SO WHAT?”  Wondering what to make of The Message after the Sunday Service?  "SO WHAT" meets on Sundays after worship to discuss The Scripture and The Message. The next “SO WHAT” is Sunday, November 16th.  For more information, contact Russ Bless at or call 419-874-7940

PUB THEOLOGY - Interested in casual conversation about faith issues?  Pub Theology may be for you!  We will meet on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month to talk and fellowship together.  The next gathering will be November 13th at 6:30 at a NEW LOCATION: Dale’s in Maumee.  For more information, contact Karen Shepler at

DO YOU LIKE OUR SUNDAY FOOD?  We've got great food - and it's all because of you!  We're looking to continue this trend over the next three months.  Once again, we need volunteers to bring hospitality food one or two times over the next three months.  A sign up list is located on the bulletin board in the hospitality area, or let Deb or Jenny know.  If you choose, you can be reimbursed for your expenses. (Just give Shelly Savory your receipt.) 

GREETERS - Enjoy meeting people?  Greeters are needed to say hello to people as they enter for Sunday service and to greet newcomers to The Village.  If you are interested sign the "greeter calendar "located on the bulletin board or email Marjie Zonner at
