A caring congregation, a vision for outreach

The Village Church at Dowling Park, FLLocated at the heart of the campus, The Village Church ministers to the needs of all generations, with an active, caring congregation that joins together in heartfelt worship and willing service. Eighteen different denominations are represented among the regular worshipers each Sunday. The Village Church involves adults, youth and children in a variety of ministries. A vital focus of the church is prayer. With an active prayer ministry and a special room set aside where individuals in the prayer ministry come to pray for the needs of others, this community is truly “prayer conditioned.” The Village Church is an integral part of Advent Christian Village life. In addition to worship services and Bible classes, you can get involved in drama, sing in the choir, lead a Sunday School class, or become active in women’s or men’s ministries.

The church offers a vibrant ministry to the youth and the families of the greater community, and the children often participate in intergenerational activities and programs. Advent Christian Village has an amazing spiritual strength, welcoming persons of all faiths and beliefs. Members of ACV are invited to be as involved as they wish in The Village Church, where they can join with people from all backgrounds to worship and share the common bond of faith.
