Here’s your weekly news update from The Village Church at Vinings:
-We’ll worship God together in Word and Sacrament this Sunday, the Second Sunday in Lent, at 10:30AM at Teasley Elementary. Justin and David will lead us in singing, Jonathan will lead our liturgy and celebrate Communion, and Curt will preach from 1 Corinthians 1:18-25. There’s never been a better time to invite an unchurched friend!
-Daylight Savings Time starts Saturday night, so don’t forget to set your clocks forward!
-We have a new nursey option for 2 and 3 year olds. As always, you’re welcome to have your children with you throughout the whole service – we value families worshiping God together! We’ve had some recent requests, thought, to have a nursery option for 2 and 3 year old children for the entire service. So, if you have a 2 or 3 year old, and you’d like for them to be in a caring environment for the entire service, feel free to bring them to the Library at Teasley before the service begins.
-Sunday School classes will meet this week – 9:15AM at Teasley, including a new class taught by Matt Koehn on the book of Hebrews. Matt’s class begins at 9:30AM.
Here’s a description from Matt:
“The exalted Christ is not only the focus of our church, but the focus of the Epistle to the Hebrews as well. Join us at Teasley on Sunday mornings at 9:30am as, together, we mine the theological depths of this, the “Cindarella of New Testament studies”, and come to a more complete understanding of the person and work of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Bring whatever you’d like (questions, coffee, and donuts are encouraged!), but most importantly bring the expectation that the richness of God’s Word will saturate your heart and mind.”
-We have another “8 at 8″ Social coming up Friday, March 23rd. We’ll have dinner in groups of 8 at host homes and then all meet up at Rod and Linda Gray’s house for a special backyard concert by Mark Miller.

-Gentlemen, there’s a conference coming up in Atlanta that you don’t want to miss. It’s called the Gospel Man Conference and it’s Friday, April 27 (7:00-9:30PM) and Saturday, April 28 (8:00AM-1:00PM) at Perimeter Church in John’s Creek. Tullian Tchividjian and Scotty Smith are the speakers. I don’t know of two other men I’d rather sit under in order to soak-up the good news of God’s grace. We’d like to get a group of men from VCV going, so if you’re interested in attending, contact Jonathan at [email protected] to reserve a ticket.

-There are a few concerts coming up in ATL that several of us will be attending. We’d love for you to come along too!

Here’s a thought for the week:
What we offer the world is not ourselves or our moral example or our spiritual integrity. What we offer the world is our broken lives, saying, “We are sinners saved by grace.” What we offer the world is Jesus Christ and him crucified.
Grace and Peace,
The VCV team
