At TVC, we've 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.
