Local Villages are small groups that meet throughout the week in homes, coffee shops, and church spaces. Each group is unique in some ways, but all Local Villages share a commitment to relationships and sharing life together. If you have an idea for a Local Village that doesn't currently exist, we'd love to hear about it!

To get involved in a Local Village email info@villagechurchbflo.com or contact the group facilitator. 

NEW GROUP BEGINS FEB 20 | "What Happens When God's  People Pray?" Praying together is one of the most effective ways to pray.  But who knows how?  What should you expect?  Pastor Jim Cymbala answers those questions and invites us to seek God not just alone, but together.  There are six DVD sessions with time for Bible study and prayer each week.  At the McClains' house, 220 West Ave., 7 pm.  Call if you want more information.
Leader: The McClains', 544-0246

The Prayer Local Village meets in a family-like setting to pray for each other, the church and our world.  We meet 1st and 3rd Wednesdays at the Johnsons' home at  143 Louvaine Dr, Tonawanda, NY 14223 at 7:30 PM.
Leader:  Matt Johnson, 860-9258

Following Christ in Healthcare | Open to anyone in the healthcare field or studying to be in the healthcare field including nurses, physical therapists, pharmacists, physicians, residents, behavioral therapist, social workers, etc. Significant others of those who are in the healthcare field are welcome. Topics may not always be directly related to healthcare, but the idea is to be a support and encouragement to one another as we show God's love by providing healthcare to the Buffalo community and learn, through God's word, how to do it better.
