Victory News


Despite the cold and the new start time of 9:09 things went very well this past Sunday! Thank you to all of you who came early at 7 to help set-up. That was huge. I’m hoping we can continue to have volunteers show up at 7 to help us set up our Bible Quest auditoriums, the lobby, the cafĂ©, and our worship space in theater #1. There is always a lot to do and anyone who wants to help is welcome to join us at 7 am at Showtime.

This Sunday we’re continuing our series Supernatural. I’ll be talking about how it is that we can trust God’s timing in our lives even when it’s tough. I’m guessing this will be a timely sermon for many of you that you won’t want to miss.

I’m hoping that we’ll again this Sunday have a great turnout for church and that we’ll have a number of people joining us for the first time. This week we mailed out another round of 16,000 postcards informing the community of our new 9:09 start time and inviting people to come check out our church in this new year to hear the gospel of Jesus. Maybe you noticed some of our Facebook ads too.

In case you didn’t get one Sunday, here’s a link to a menu of options for our next session of Sheep Squads. I hope you can find a group that works for you. If you don’t see anything you can be a part of, please feel free to contact our groups coordinator, Daniel Tomczyk. We’re always looking for ways to start new groups.

The start of a new year is a good time for a couple reminders. Members and regular attenders, remember to keep your Church Community Builder profile up to date. It will also be helpful to everyone if you can upload a profile picture—one for your family and then also for the individuals in your family. A number of people have requested a printed membership directory. One easy and cost effective way we could do this is if everyone uploaded profile pics for their families. If you don’t have any digital photos or you’re not sure how to upload a picture please feel free to contact me and we can certainly help you with that.

This week I got to meet with our Mission Counselor, Ed Schuppe, over lunch along with Jeff G and Cassy. He was very enthusiastic about our future plans and affirmed the blessings that God has given us in land, the opportunity to help Kayla’s Krew, and the potential for our own ministry center.

Thanks for keeping our church and our community in your prayers this new year!
