It’s been hard trying to find words for what the church and the people here have meant to me. I grew up in this church and so much of who I have become is due to the people I have known here. TVC was my home, and I had the best of times learning and growing and serving with all of you amazing people. The closest and most enduring friendships of my life were formed here. I have always firmly believed that God was doing great things with our church, and I still believe that, even here at the end of the chapter. But to paraphrase what a great author once said, stories never end, even as people’s parts in them do, and while the tale of the Village Church has drawn to a close, I look forward with joy to the tales that God still has in store for all of us.
