The Village Church is a congregation which is rooted in time, relevant for today, and reaching for tomorrow. Our teaching is based on the solid Word of God, which gives encouragement, guidance, and direction to our lives.
Our values express our purpose and goal: “To show others by word and deed how beautiful it is to live with Jesus.” As people who know we are loved by the Lord, we seek ways to share that love with others in our worship and in our everyday lives.
Our vision is to be known in our community and beyond as a place where everyone is welcome and will experience vibrant worship, Christ-centered education, and compassionate care.
We would love to have you join us on our journey!
May God’s peace be yours this day.
LAY MINISTERS INSTALLED AT THE VILLAGE
Two members of the congregation, Gerald Knighton and John Carver, were installed into offices of ministry at the Village Church-Lutheran in Lacombe, LA on Sunday, July 20, 2015.
John Carver was installed as Elder and Lay Communion Assistant. John is an instrumental part of the Village Elders. His ministry is to help bring Holy Communion on a regular basis to our ‘shut-in’ members. In addition to that John will also supplement the Pastor’s hospital visits and begin a new outreach program to better connect our members to their Elders. John brings a wealth of knowledge and love to this position.
Gerald Knighton was installed as Elder, Chaplain to the Elders and Lay Worship Leader. Gerald Knighton brings over 40 years of ministry experience to the Board of Elders. Gerald served in the parish setting as a pastor and also served over twenty years as a chaplain in the military. Gerald will help Pastor Paul in ministering to the needs of our congregation. Part of his duties will include hospital visitations and leading worship services as needed. We thank God for bringing Gerald and his wonderful wife Karen to our congregation.
Gerald Knighton is installed as Chaplain to the Elders and Lay Worship Leader at the 8:00 am service on July 20, 2015.
