In 2011, a group of 18 people started meeting in a condo living room
praying about starting a new church. Village Church was born from their prayer and God's goodness. 
Village Church has grown into a beautiful community where people can be real with each other
and help one another take their next step with Jesus.

We meet Sunday mornings at 9:30AM at the the 19th Century Club  located at

178 Forest Avenue in Oak Park, Illinois across the street from Austin Gardens.

There is plenty of free parking in the garage just south of the building.

We know it can be difficult and confusing to go to a new place for the first time.

Just come and check us out, no strings attached. We are casual and laid back. 

Wear jeans if you want. You are welcome no matter who you are or where you are in life.

You won't hear high pressure pitches or guilt trips. 

Just a time of singing, teaching, communion, and hanging out. 

It's all designed to show how God is real, relevant to our lives, and worthy of our devotion.

  • worship

    We want to celebrate the goodness of God, so our music is a unique

    blend of praise and reflection, modern and classic, and always focused on Jesus. 

    You'll hear a variety of instruments, including piano, keyboards, acoustic & electric guitars, bass, drums, and maybe a djembe. Our worship team is made up of people from the congregation, just like you!

  • message

    We believe the Bible is powerful and transforms our lives. It's the key way God reveals who He is and what He wants us to do. Our Sunday morning services always feature a message directly from the Bible, presented in a way that shows its relevance to our everyday lives.

  • communion

    One of the last things Jesus did before He died was to have a meal with His closest friends. During this feast, Jesus took bread and wine and distributed them to the people at the table. He showed them how this represents His death and everything it does for us. He also encouraged these followers and all Christians to celebrate this meal with each other as a beautiful commemoration of His love and death. We celebrate communion every week at Village Church.

  • family atmosphere

    The Bible calls churches "the Body of Christ." This is because it's supposed to be a place filled with diverse people who care for one another. At Village Church, you will meet people from all around the world of various ages. And they're all dedicated to loving each other as Jesus does.

  • parking

    Many who live in the neighborhood walk to our church. Others choose to drive. There's plenty of parking in the parking garage just south of the building. And it's free all day Sunday.
