Mission Statement: Word to Life – Leading people to Jesus through acts of service and personal encounters

At VCD we are committed to a non-religious lifestyle. Christianity is a living relationship with God that leads us ever closer to Him. As we have grown closer to God, we have learned that He wants us to put feet to our faith. God has instructed us to belong to His kingdom and love everyone we encounter.

Part of sharing this love, God’s love, involves giving. Not giving for the sake of receiving something in return, but as a demonstration of God’s kind of giving- the kind with no strings attached.

We pray for anyone in need, and try to demonstrate God’s love in practical ways. To demonstrate this love we offer free, simple gifts to others in our community. Sometimes we wash cars, refill washer fluid, give away quarters at the laundromat, give away bottled water during super hot days on the “prairie path,” buy coffee, hand out 9-volt batteries to keep smoke detectors functioning, etc.

There are many opportunities for involvement in these practical outreaches of kindess to the people of DuPage county. Check out the calendar under “What’s Happening?” to see what we’ve got planned. To join us please email Ken Schrock.
