A Word From The Pastor

A Wealth of Friends

Senior Pastor Bill Hayden

     I am one of the most blessed and wealthiest men in the Villages Community. I realize that wealth is not in fame, fortune or who you know in life because everything can change overnight. I have the privilege of sharing my life with you as a Villager as well as being a Village Chapel Member. I could not conceive of the kind of friendships and love that I have received from this community.

     Many of you know about my most recent family and physical challenges this year. You have kept me in your prayers, thoughts, phone calls and cards; it makes me want to be better and do more for you and others. I’m inspired and encouraged by you and the way you demonstrate your love for others. You just don’t talk the talk but you walk the walk and I am glad to be in your presence as often as possible.

     Each day that you step out of bed and place your feet on this earth you make this world a better place. I’m truly grateful for your courage in making a difference in our war-torn world. It’s far too easy to go with the flow, rather than engage others with love, acceptance and forgiveness and be a testament to the world by being fearless to demonstrate with acts of kindness.

     Show your love and never forget a little love will last throughout eternity. “And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love." I Corinthians 13:13 NKJV

     My wife (Gloria) and I thank you for being faithful friends and people who show love without reservation. You are making a difference as you share the wealth.

     Let us come together as a community for the National Day of Prayer, May 3 at the Cribari Auditorium from noon to 3 p.m. in the Forum Room. When everything has been tried and fail, prayer has been known to work miracles.

     Please feel free to join us this Sunday and sit among friends at the Villages Community Chapel in Cribari Auditorium 10 a.m. to be encouraged over the Word, a cup of coffee and cookies. The chapel is a place for needs to be met, faith to be affirmed and people to love.  We would love to meet you. To learn more about the Villages Community Chapel visit our website at
