A Word From The Pastor

Why I Attend Chapel

     People ask me why I attend the Villages Community Chapel.  The easy answer is it is convenient.  Since I am not an early bird, I love being able to roll out of bed and be at the Chapel in less than ten minutes, and the Sunday Service does not start until 10AM. Being a person who likes to sing, I also enjoy the choir and the music at the Chapel.

     However, the salient reason is I love the warm, caring, people who are members of the Chapel.  It feels like an extended family to me.  The Chapel is a broad-based community church, with many members who have had membership previously in other denominational churches.  We have Baptists, Presbyterians, Methodists, Episcopalians, Roman Catholics, and others.  Some of our members are experienced Christians, some are novice Christians, and there are those who are still discovering Christ.  The Chapel has members who are conservative and liberal, both politically and in Christian doctrine.   The truth is we will never agree on everything, but the one thing we all share is a deep and abiding love and respect for each other and for Jesus Christ.  Are we perfect?  Heck no!  But we are all working to praise and honor God the best we can in this life, trusting in Christ’s mercy and love, until we meet our Lord in paradise.

     So if you are looking for a  church that believes “Judge not, and you will not be judged” (Luke 6:37) and in charity, “Whenever you did it for any of my people, no matter how unimportant they seemed, you did it for me.” (Matthew 25:40), I suggest you give the Villages Chapel a try.  As Pastor Bill Hayden would say: “We are the perfect Church, filled with imperfect people.”

     Please join us for the Sunday Service in the Cribari Auditorium at 10 A.M, followed by fellowship, cookies and coffee.  The Chapel is a place where needs are met, faith is affirmed and people are loved.  To learn more about The Villages Community Chapel, go to our website at villagescommunitychapel.org or call our church office at (408) 238-3079. While our dear Pastor Bill is out on medical leave, we have been blessed with a wonderful lineup of speakers.  This Sunday Pastor Dennis Hadley from Evergreen Valley Church will be speaking.
