There are many ways to participate:
- Purchase gifts for kids
- Sort gifts at the Christmas Gift Drive Sorting Party on Sunday, December 10
- Deliver Gifts on Saturday, December 16 at 8:00 a.m.
- Hand out gifts at the church building on Saturday, December 16 at 8:00 a.m.

January 7, 14, 21, & 28 | 11:15 a.m. | Village Church of Bartlett
Join us for a four-week class to learn more about Village Church, including our vision, values, ministries, and more! Attending Discover Village is your first step toward becoming a member of Village Church of Bartlett.
Rooted is 10 weeks of discipleship, life change, and real connection! In Rooted, participants do daily personal devotion time and weekly group time all with the purpose of being more like Jesus. The curriculum is all centered, or Rooted, in God’s Word. If you’ve been following Jesus for years OR if you are new to the church or new to the faith this could just be your next step. Rooted might sound like a community group, but again, it’s unlike a community group because participants only meet 10 weeks and cover topics like Who is God? How does He speak to us? How do I make the most of my life? How do I tell others about Jesus – AND so many more.
Training For Parents
Find a curated list of resources compiled for parents of young children and students. On the Training For Parents page, you will find technology resources (including a Family Tech and Cell Phone Agreement), book recommendations, video training from Making Young Disciples classes, and much more. It is our prayer that these resources will equip you to provide ongoing discipleship for the children and students in your home.
