Mark your donation "Village Sunday Food." If you would like to bring in snacks, a sign up list is located on the bulletin board in the hospitality area, or let Mary Ann Robinson (penguin0036@yahoo.com) 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 marjiezonner@yahoo.com.

The Village has a small Good Samaritan Fund to assist members of The Village Community who have emergency financial needs.  If you would like to contribute to this fund, make a donation at any time by placing in an envelope or writing a check to The Village and noting in the memo line or on the envelope that your gift is for the "Good Samaritan Fund."  If you are someone who has a financial need, or if someone asks for your assistance, please direct them to Pastor Cheri.  She will determine whether or not funds are available to assist.   

Are you grateful for The Village Church?  If so, would you consider making a weekly or monthly financial commitment to The Village in order to sustain our vital ministries?
