One of our dear members, Jean Connely went to Heaven this past Tuesday. The funeral was today, and while we rejoice that she is in Heaven, we will certainly miss her!
We have some early results from our Harvest Days fall program. Last Sunday was Missions Sunday. We had three missionaries present, a Missions Dinner on Saturday night, and services on Sunday geared toward missions giving.
Today, we collected the commitment cards and are excited to report that we have a pledged increase of over $90 per week! We had been averaging $160 per week, so with the generosity of our church members, we should reach $10,000 per year in missions giving next year! This will allow us to add more missionaries on for support.
Today, we actually collected $333 in missions giving!! It is exciting to see the Gospel get to more places in the world!
Today we got to here the new Victory Baptist Church Choir. They did a great job. Below is a clip of the song they sang!
We have some pictures of Friend Day 2013 below. God gave us nearly 90 people in our morning service and several who made the decision to accept Christ as Saviour! It was a great day for Victory Baptist Church- Praise the Lord!
We are very excited about what God did on Friend Day today! We had a year-high attendance of 87 in the morning service, 6 people made professions of faith, and over 20 visitors were present. We will be giving more information about the day soon. Pictures to come!
Our 2013 Revival was a success! 10 people walked the aisles to profess their faith in Jesus Christ and 3 were baptized for the week. There were over 25 visitors for the services! Many commitments were made to serve the Lord more and the altars were full.
God really moved in our Easter Sunday services. Dr. Miller preached about the Book of Life and gave a clear salvation message. 6 people walked the aisle to have their name placed in the Lamb's Book of Life! 3 folks were baptized, and 2 joined the church! The Lord gave us 70 people in our Sunday morning service, and it was Spirit-filled! We have posted some pictures below:
In the past week, we had new carpet installed in the auditorium. The men worked very hard to get the pews fastened to the carpet before our Sunday service. It is a blessing! Thank you to everyone who gave to make this possible!
We are excited to report that the month of February was a good month for Victory Baptist Church in many categories. There were many great church services, including a three week series on Finances taught by Brother DeRenzy. The offerings in February increased greatly, and the average morning attendance was right at 50 for each week of the month. God truly is working in our church.
Now it is on to March, when we plan to have new carpet installed and weather permitting, start work on the new roof. If you are looking for a church for your family, stop by and visit us in March!
THERE WERE 15 IN OUR JR CHURCH THIS PAST SUNDAY. BROTHER MARK AND ALYSSA DIRECT THE CHILDREN'S CHURCH AND DO A GREAT JOB! WE WERE EXCITED TO SEE 55 IN TOTAL CHURCH ATTENDANCE ON A WINTER'S SUNDAY!
