Alternative Worship: Village Presbyterian Church

The Gathering

We think God is too big to be worshipped in only one way. So, every Sunday night we gather in Friendship Hall. We sing old hymns and new songs with indie musicians and a harmonium. We celebrate Holy Communion every week, admitting our souls get hungry. We believe the laughs of children are as sacred as the preacher's words, and enjoy worshipping with every generation together. And we think loneliness is not what God desires for us, so we often extend the table after worship with cookies and potlucks to actively cultivate community. 

It's worship, as holy as it's always been. And it's "alternative," different than it's ever been. Because our world is different, but our souls still seek the same things. Come, see what's happening here.



People Like Us Digital Signage.jpg

Summer 2019

The Bible is filled with stories of people. Some of them are of amazing and inspiring folks. Others’ stories tell of folks in desperate need. Many tell of ordinary times. These people we discover in pages of sacred scripture are, however, people like us. They endeavored to live as God’s children amidst the realities of their place and time. Some of them provide inspiring examples of faith. Some walk paths we should avoid. Many were mixtures of belief and unbelief. This summer we will meet – or meet again – a collection of people who can serve as examples as we seek to live as God’s children amidst the realities of the world in our time and place.
