“Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.…So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.” —Galatians 6:2,10
Our Lord Jesus Christ has come in the flesh. So we are eager to do good to everyone, and especially those in the household of faith. As He did, we wish to bear the burdens of those who struggle under them. Through the continuing generous donations of the congregation, the Village Church is available to those in need of physical, financial and emotional help, supporting those who find themselves in emergency or crisis situations as a result of unforeseen circumstance.
We offer help to those in challenging situations by assessing their needs and working together to find solutions. If you know or someone you know in our midst is in need of such assistance, please call us at (212) 203-0253 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In college, Karen Lacy told her friends that she would never live in New York City. Having lived here now for 20 years, she guesses she was wrong. Karen’s call as a dancer brought her here and she has loved every minute of the journey as an artist of movement and dance educator, teaching public school children and aspiring young dancers. She has also loved every minute of getting to know this big, wonderful city.
But Karen has another art form. She began attending the Village Church when it began in January, 1995. God’s mercy has been evident in each year of her life but also, in the life of this church as we seek to love as Jesus has loved us. Karen has had the privilege of stepping into people’s lives and seeing God heal, help, and restore in the hardest of circumstances. She leads us in the art of mercy, and living this verse:
“For the LORD your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great, the mighty, and the awesome God, who is not partial and takes no bribe. He executes justice for the fatherless and the widow, and loves the sojourner, giving him food and clothing. Love the sojourner, therefore, for you were sojourners in the land of Egypt.”–Deuteronomy 10:17-19
