VGroup (v -grüp): a number of individuals from VillageChurch assembled together or having some unifying relationship – to connect, fellowship, & grow. VGroups meet regularly to dig deeper into scripture, encourage one another, and have fun experiencing life together. At VillageChurch, we believe that people should not meander through life alone. Instead, people should have a core network of Christian friends they can lean on in tough times, share the insights they have found through their life experiences, celebrate life’s joyous moments, and grow in their Faith through prayer and Bible study.
3 Keys to VGroups:
Connect – Joining believers together through intentional relationships and connecting them with Jesus and each other.
Fellowship – Experiencing life in fun, casual settings with those you are in relationship with while encouraging one another in faith.
Grow – Advancing your Christian walk to the point of influencing the world around you. It is our goal to grow each of our VGroups spiritually and numerically and by doing so begin new groups to reach new people in our church and community.
Throughout scripture we find examples of what VGroups should look like and why they are vital to physical, emotional, and spiritual growth in the Body of Christ. In Hebrews 10:24-25 we are called to “stimulate one another to love and good deeds” and to “encourage one another”. In Matthew 18 :20, Jesus says that “where two or three have gathered together in My name, I am there in their midst” (fellowship with believers in the presence of the Holy Spirit).
1 Thessalonians 5 points out that we are to build each other up through encouragement. In Acts 2:42-47, we see God expanding the kingdom via small, home based meetings. These people met together regularly, served those around them who had need, fellowshipped together over meals, and studied scripture and prayed together. They impacted their neighbors for all eternity by being a light that shined with the Truth that is found in Christ.
