November, 2008, marked the 40th anniversary of Village, which started
as a mission in a house church in November, 1968. As part of the
celebration of our anniversary, Ray Chatary solicited some formal
recogntions from local and state governments. These included
proclamations of support from the Bowie City Council, the Prince
Georges County Council, the Maryland State Legislature, and the
Governor of Maryland. Ray presented these at the worship services
on November 23. Some photos are below.
