          08.01.09

                                When was the last time you thought through your own salvation? In what ways have you seen fruit recently that bears witness of your rebirth? With whom can you share this message of new life even this month. How?

                                  Do you know that there are people all around you who need hope and help in their marriages? This year’s Valentine’s event is designed around that exact need.

                                  11.02.08

                                    In these times of global unrest and uncertainty, our inclination may be to fear - but Christ says, "Fear not!"

                                    11.01.08

                                      God chooses who our leaders will be. The outcome of upcoming elections, will be the result of God's invisible plan, and whatever happens, we must trust that it is for our good.

                                        Media Warning: The Shack

                                        09.25.08 | Media

                                          Decline the invitation to meet with God in The Shack. It is not worth reading for the story and certainly not worth reading for the theology.

                                            What exactly does it mean to be a family of growing believers? In 1 Corinthians 12, we read, “The body is a unit, though it is made up of many parts; and though all its parts are many, they form one body”. As God weaves together the fabric...

                                            06.18.08 | Media

                                              On March 3, 2008, Oprah Winfrey hosted a unique online class in cyberspace that reached 500,000 people in more than 139 countries. The interactive webcast, which featured spiritual teacher Eckhart Tolle and his mega-bestseller A New Earth...

                                              05.14.08 | Movies

                                                It is also a place that's filled with more life lessons than you may remember, though. Between battles, brief as those interludes are, there emerge some pretty compelling allegories, both spiritual and cultural. At the fore is the assertion that...

                                                05.07.08 | Media

                                                  The Associated Press reports that "Grand Theft Auto IV" sold more than 6 million units in its first week. With sales like that, it’s certainly the big ticket. If you have kids and if you allow them to play video games, chances are...

                                                    A few weeks ago, the United Nations World Food Program announced that it will cut half its food supplies to the people of Darfur because of a lack of funds and relentless attacks on its convoys. Here's how you can help.

                                                    Elder Update: Our Purpose

                                                    05.01.08

                                                      Think fast – what is our purpose as a church? Why has God placed Village Bible Church on Route 47 in Sugar Grove? What is our primary calling through which everything else funnels and through which our “success” is to be measured? The...
