We want our neighbors to know we are for them, not against them. We are for our local community and we are for the world. It is our vision that Village Green Church will be known as a group of people who “love their neighbors as themselves.” We would love to have you join us in showing love to our neighbor. Let’s all be #4DuPage!
At Village Green, we love our local community. We encourage our members to leave the four walls of our building to be involved in serving our community. One of the ways we do this is through our small groups. Our small groups don’t just study the Bible (though we certainly do that!), but plan days to serve together in the community.
In addition to having outreach focused small groups, we have events through out the year focused on serving our community. One event we have during the summer is “Day for DuPage”. During Day for DuPage, we as a whole church serve at several different local organizations. In the fall, we hold an annual banquet called “Harvest Home” where we raise funds to give to local organizations. Events like these are not the end of our serving, but seen as a catalyst for members to get involved in the community.
We started the hashtag, #4DuPage, to show the work that we are doing throughout DuPage County. We also support a number of local agencies providing services to people in need through prayer and finances. It is our hope that through all these efforts we can show Christ’s love to those around us.
We love our local community, but that does not mean we have forgotten about the rest of the world. Village Green supports 7 international missionaries spread throughout the world. These missionaries work in their own local contexts to spread the Gospel and show Christ’s love to their neighbors, through leadership training, medical services, education, and community outreach.
