Back to Church Sunday
Will you help Victory be one of over 20,000 churches that will participate in the national movement for"Back To Church Sunday" on September 19, 2021?
Covid-19 and social distancing have been a powerful reminder of how much we need each other and how important support and connection can be when facing life’s difficulties. It’s never been so clear that we are all “Better and Stronger Together”. Remember, that although most people in America have been to church, only about 20% attend church regularly (and less since Covid-19). Yet research showed that 7 out of 10 people would visit a church if someone just invited them. So we are asking everyone to invite someone you know or love to come back to church on Sunday, September 19, 2021 to either our 9:00am or 11:30am services so they too can "Experience Victory in their Life."

◦ Why do I relate to people on my job, at home and in ministry the way I do?
◦ What am I passionate about?
◦ Why did I have to go through the things I’ve gone through in my life?
You will leave these classes with a greater understanding of how God especially created you, and how you can apply your personality, spiritual gifts, abilities, passions, and experiences in life to walk victoriously and find your PLACE in life.
