All ladies are invited to a morning of coffee and fellowship this Saturday, August 7th. Drop in whenever you are able and build relationships with the other women of VCE. Coffee, tea, and light snacks will be provided, but feel free to bring your favorite morning beverage as well!
Servant’s Day Off
August 8th | 10:30am
On August 8th, all of us at VCE will have the opportunity to sleep in, relax, and attend church together at the Village Church of Bartlett (in person or virtually) – no set up or tear down required! We are calling that Sunday a “Servant’s Day Off” for you and your family to have a well-deserved day of rest.
There will be no service at Fountain View August 8th, but we encourage everyone to join us at the Village Church of Bartlett for the 11am service. If you have children in elementary school, please be sure to register them online using the link below.
Village Church Digital
Village Church Digital is almost here! In collaboration with the Village Church of Bartlett, we’ve been working behind the scenes to build a brand new web platform with original content, by Village Church for Village Church, to help you grow as a disciple of Jesus.
Make sure you’re signed up for our emails so you can receive our Village Church Digital newsletter, which will come out every other week and feature new content that we hope will help you have the mind, heart, and life of Christ.

August 15th | 12:30pm
The August summer picnic has been postponed to August 15th. Gather for some food, fellowship, and plenty of fun. There will be food, games, + a park for the kids. Please bring a dish to share. If your last name starts with A-L bring a side. If it begins with M-Z bring a dessert. This is taking place across the street @ Hampe Park: 297 W Lies Rd, Carol Stream. Please feel free to still join even if you didn’t bring a dish.
Thinking it Through
Taking a Break in July
“Thinking it Through” is a podcast discussing various topics relevant to popular culture from a biblical perspective. Each episode presents ideas to help navigate through both controversial and non-controversial issues making their way through modern culture. The goal is to help followers of Jesus think through constant cultural changes to equip them to go, grow, and overcome.
New episodes of “Thinking it Through” will resume again in August.
On July 4th, VCE gathered at the public pool to celebrate Mikey and Eli’s testimonies of faith. Click the link below to watch the Livestream of the baptism.
