“We are sent into the world, like Jesus, to serve. For this is the natural expression of our love for our neighbors. We love. We go. We serve." --John Stott
At The Village Chapel, we realize the Christian church does not exist merely for itself. We are here first and foremost to glorify God, and then second, to become the arms of Jesus reaching out to a broken and hurting world.
This outreach-minded mission requires two things: words and deeds. The words of the Christian mission proclaim the good news of God’s grace offered in Christ Jesus. The deeds of the Christian mission involve reaching out in love to help the helpless, to bring comfort to the grieving, to bring justice to the oppressed and relief to the poor.
As a church, we live this out by giving away 15 percent of the tithes and offerings we take in to assist worthy organizations in their ongoing work. This means that through your generous financial support of The Village Chapel, you already support dozens of ministries, both local and international. These include a wide range of ministries that focus on the important works of evangelism, justice and mercy.

Our Missions Board also exists to make individuals at TVC aware of opportunities to give of their time and talents. From our Second Saturdays of City Service as well as annual TVC events like our Local Missions & Volunteer Fair and International Missions and Missions Trips Fair, they do all they can to help you put hands and feet on your faith.
Remember to pray for our 17-member short-term missions team from The Village Chapel while on a nine-day trip to Guatemala July 14-22. This country is close to our hearts, with individual TVCers sponsoring 200 students in the region through Compassion International. The team will be serving in two new villages, visiting classrooms, building relationships with the staff and families, visiting homes and completing service projects. Find out more about this trip HERE.
Make plans to join us for our next Second Saturday of City Service on Saturday, July 14. We’ll all meet at 8:15 am on Saturday in the Living Room at TVC Main before departing to worksites around Nashville. This month’s featured projects include

That’s why, at TVC, we devote the second Saturday of each month to serving local missions organizations. You have the opportunity to choose from a variety of projects, based on your interests and abilities, serving until your project is complete (most are done before 1 pm).
