Become a member of Village Covenant Church

Beginning later this month, Laurie Cornell will be leading a membership class for all who are interested in becoming registered members of Village Covenant Church. Classes will be held at 9:15 AM in Laurie’s office for three Sundays: February 24, March 3, and March 11. In this class, attendees will learn about the origins of the Covenant tradition and the beliefs and practices that make up the Covenant denomination and set it apart from other branches of Christianity. Attendees will also learn about Village Covenant Church specifically, learning about how we operate as a church organization and what our missions and goals are for our congregation and the community around us.

If you are not yet a church member at Village, we sincerely hope you will consider attending. All are welcome and encouraged to attend! Please contact Laurie if you have any questions.

Annual Sweets for a Sweetie Auction & Fundraiser

On Sunday, February 18, The Cove youth group will be hosting Village’s annual Sweets for a Sweetie auction and fundraiser! Sweets for a Sweetie will be slightly after Valentine’s Day this year. But this means if you find yourself in a position of having forgotten to get your sweetie a Valentine’s gift, you’ll have a good excuse! You were just waiting to get them something at the auction, right?

Contact Bekah if you have any questions.
