One of our Core Values at Victory is Mission. As a church, we feel it is vital to equip you to have a heart of mission. To help ignite this passion, we are having a Mission Week where we can Love Our City through different Ministry Outreaches. We have different outreaches that you can volunteer at as an individual, family, or a small group.
We have 2 Victory Sponsored Projects that are great for small groups or individuals.
1. Stars and Stripes- Saturday October 27 9am-1pm
At this event, The Tribe Young Adult ministry will be having a popcorn and cotton candy booth at Sulphur's City event Stars and Stripes at the Grove. The main objective is to not only serve the Sweets with cotton candy but also use this opportunity to pray with those they are serving.
2. Lighthouse Ministries- Saturday October 27
This ministry is located in Kinder Louisiana. This ministry is a safe haven for pregnant teens and their children. We will be assisting with painting, building, and overall maintenance. This is a great event to volunteer for a small group. Click Here to learn more
