Hi Friends,

Here’s your weekly news update from The Village Church at Vinings:

-We’ll worship God together in Word and Sacrament this Sunday (the Third Sunday of Advent) at 10:30AM at Teasley Elementary. Jonathan will lead our liturgy, Justin and David will lead us in singing and Curt will preach from 1 Thessalonians 5:16-24.

-Sunday School is on this week! Youth will meet at Panera Bread Co. on Paces Ferry at 9:00. Children and adults will meet at Teasley at 9:15. Adults will discuss chapter 9 of Steve Brown’s, A Scandalous Freedom.

-This Sunday (Dec. 11) afternoon Dan and Shelly Owens are doing a living nativity at their house as an outreach to their neighborhood. If you’d like to help or if you’d like for your kids to be involved, contact melissa@villagechurchvinings.org.

Here’s something to ponder this week:
“Something happens when we come to God for His grace and mercy–something that is so radical and so amazing that it can only be described as death to our old selves. It is the overwhelming desire to please the One who has loved us with such amazing and unconditional love….I may not get better overnight; I may not be the fine, upstanding, and wonderful Christian I thought I was, but I now have a desire to please the One who loved me (and gave Himself for me). That desire is the soil in which goodness grows–not perfectly, by any means, but it does grow.”

Grace and Peace,
