“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.

Most second Saturdays, February through November, TVC provides opportunities for you to engage with local organizations that we support financially. Serving each month is a great way to meet others, while loving our neighbors! Please make plans now to serve on Second Saturdays, February through November. We will announce project details and sign-ups each month.
Through the generous tithes and offerings of TVCers, the TVC Mission Board made a donation to our friends at Justice & Mercy Amazon to help with the COVID crisis they experienced when a “second wave” overwhelmed the city of Manaus and surrounding areas crippling hospitals and leaving many suffering without the medical care they so desperately needed. Our donation was an emergency response to the need for funds for oxygen, medical supplies and food for Manaus and the villages along the Amazon. Our friends at Justice and Mercy Amazon, wanted to thank us personally.
