“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” - John 13:34-35
At The Village, we believe Congregational Care is about being a welcoming and spiritually nurturing family. We believe this includes sharing in one another’s joys, challenges, and sorrow’s in thoughtful and practical ways. Our congregational care ministries designed to become a community in which we extend the love of Christ to one another. Guided by this vision to become a care system made up of several interconnected parts:
It’s Prayer Time (IPT) Ministry
The prayer team consists of a group of committed and gifted spiritual leaders who come together in one spirit (1Cor. 12:11) to intercede for the spiritual, health, financial and social needs of the body of Christ. We firmly believe that the fervent prayer of the righteous is powerful and effective.
