Frequently Asked Questions
What time and where is your service?
Sunday at 10:00am at Basehor-Linwood High School.
What should I expect if I were to visit a Village Community Church service?
At VCC our worship experience is intended to connect people to God with a vibrant but laid-back atmosphere all who come will feel welcome. The services begin at 10:00 am and are usually an hour long. Our Children's ministry (Kidsville) is offered during the service as well. The typical format of a Sunday Service includes: Welcome, Worship Music, Offering, Scripture readings, Message, and Closing. However, variety is often something we try to implement. Come early to grab some coffee and connect with others. Our present location is at Basehor-Linwood High School. (155th and Parallel)
What do you ask of guests?
Guests are encouraged to come, relax, and enjoy. Guests are invited, but never forced, to fill out a Guest Form. This helps us know how we can better serve you and what you thought of your time spent at VCC. We hope that you find VCC to be a place where you feel very welcome but ultimately where you can sense God is near. Come check us out, we would love to meet you!
What should I wear to Village Community Church?
Come as you are! Some people wear casual clothes, some wear dress clothes, and others are more comfortable in jeans. At Village Community Church we will accept you as you are, so dress as you feel comfortable.
What is your style of music?
Worship music can be very preference driven. It's impossible to have one style that suits everyone. The reality is that much of our musical tastes are influenced by the kind of music we grew up with. At VCC, we have made an attempt to focus on heart-felt worship. Our worship should be all about God, not our own wants and desires. We do have a Worship Pastor, a team of vocalists, and a worship band. We sing worship choruses and hymns arranged in innovative ways. At times it is upbeat, and at other times it's more reflective. Our prayer is that our worship is pleasing to God and focused on Him.
What is your preaching/teaching like?
Sermons are prayerfully designed to introduce people to God's love and purpose for their lives. They are Bible-driven and practical. You would also find it to be refreshingly relevant and real. Bible verses are displayed on the screen to help you follow along. We believe God still changes lives, and healthy Christians are growing and making daily decisions to live God-honoring lives. If you are far from God or a deeply-rooted Christian, there will be something for you.
What do I do with my kids during church service?
Our Children, grades K-5, are cared for and ministered to by Patty Jarvis and other screened volunteers in "Kidsville" during the 10:00am hour. We begin with activity-based, age-appropriate small groups, and then the children all come together for a large group worship and activity. After this, they return to their small groups for a discussion time with more games and/or crafts that re-emphasize the lesson for the week.
High School and Middle School ministries join worship in the main 10:00 am service and gather together in the lobby for a lesson and to connect during the sermon on Sundays.
How do I connect to Village Community Church?
Dive into Village Community Church! There's a big difference in being a weekend attendee and being part of the church body. Village Community Church does not want to simply generate a crowd, but we are to be the body of Jesus Christ. We want to help you take your next step toward Christ and toward community.
There are many opportunities to engage, but here are a few that we invite everyone that calls VCC their church home to participate in:
1. Attend our Sunday gathering
2. Join a Connect Group
3. Find a place of ongoing service at VCC - God uses ordinary people to share His love and grace.
4. Be a regular financial contributor to VCC
Pray about these things and join us in being the community we are called to be!
What do your services "feel" like?
The services feel exciting, warm, and friendly all at the same time. Many people comment about how they can sense God's Spirit at work. We make a special attempt to creatively communicate God's purpose for your life every weekend. Our hope is that people are engaged emotionally, intellectually, and spiritually. We want people to truly experience God's message for them each Sunday. In addition to great worship music, we may at times use drama, video, and other media during the service. However, everything we do is always concentrated on the Bible. We want God and His Word to be the center of our attention.
