The mission of Village Church Rolesville is “to live like family and to love like Jesus.” #livelikefamily #lovelikejesus
We believe that by living like family and loving like Jesus, people will come to know the love of God revealed in Jesus Christ, will come to follow Jesus in community with others, and be committed to blessing and transforming the world together. We are passionate about seeing families' scattered, hectic, and broken lives healed and made whole by Jesus. We hope people experience church as not just a place to go or a thing to do, but who we are.
We build our lives on Jesus.
We worship authentically and originally.
We embrace wide.
We give surprisingly and unselfishly.
We grow best together.
We celebrate like people brought from death to life.
We bless, no strings attached.
We show up with our real selves.
We revolve around the communion table and the kitchen table.
We do new things because God does new things.
Our story is the convergence of several stories and it continues to be written.
First, there's the story of God whose mission in the world is to rescue and reconcile all creation and who calls the church to participate in that mission by making disciples of Jesus Christ and loving its neighbors.
Second, there's the story of Wake Forest United Methodist Church, which was founded in Rolesville and was located there until 1936. In 1936, the congregation decided to move the church to the growing community of Wake Forest. Now, some 80 years later, Wake Forest UMC has sensed God calling to plant a campus in Rolesville so that we can continue to reach out to all people. It's time to come back to where it all began!
Third, there's the story of Pastor Tyler Williams, who was appointed to help develop a campus of Wake Forest UMC in Rolesville. Having previously served at an established, downtown church, Tyler became interested in the idea of church planting after a seed was planted by another pastor. Tyler and Lauren were both excited about the possibility of new and creative expressions of church as well as reaching out to those who don't have a church home.
