TVC Communications When people ask us to describe our church, we usually tell them that The Village Chapel (TVC) is a diverse group of people, some younger, some older, some singles, some marrieds, some families, some “single agains.” We have creative types who like art, literature and music. We have medical, business and professional types, and we have some still “finding themselves” types. There are people who have come from many different faith traditions and others who, somewhere along the way, grew disinterested or became disconnected from church altogether. But at the end of the day, most of us here at TVC have realized that we have a deep need to nourish our spiritual lives. We’ve grown tired of our tendency toward spiritual lethargy, cynicism, skepticism and brokenness. So, we’re doing something about it. We’re becoming intentional about our faith by drawing close to God in worship, studying His Word, and learning to give and take in the context of a community of believers. At The Village Chapel, we seek to be transformed as we feed our minds on God’s truth and our hearts on God’s love. Find out more at thevillagechapel.com
