Together Again

We are excited to regather for worship in-person with our VICTORY family!

This has been a challenging time for everyone in a lot of different ways and we know that so many of you have been anxious to get back to the church building to worship together.



What To Expect

Our church services may not look and feel “normal” as we get ready to gather in a new way but we’re looking forward to getting together in the safest way possible, keeping the health of you and your families as a top priority.

Service Details

  • Service times will begin the same as before with a slightly shortened ending time to give adequate time to clean the building in between services: 8:45-10a, and 11a-12:15p.
  • Attendance will be by reservations only (through online sign-ups) for 75 people in the Sanctuary, 50 people in the Fellowship Hall, and 25 people in the Youth Center. The service will be streamed into the two latter rooms.
  • There will be no classes running for youth or children of any age.
  • Children ages 2 and above are welcome to attend and must be registered online with the rest of their family.
  • Each person in your family, including children age 2 and above, must register.
  • We will continue LiveStreaming services: 8:45a service on Sundays and 7p on Thursdays.
  • During this phase, we will not be holding in-person services on Thursday nights. We will continue LiveStreaming these services.
  • This phase is a touch-free phase. Therefore, no handouts/paper will be given. This includes bulletins, sermon outlines, connect cards, and welcome bags.

  • Masks will be worn by all staff and volunteers and strongly suggested and recommended for the congregation.
  • Social distancing will be strongly encouraged/enforced.
  • Restrooms will be open with a limit of 4 people in each restroom at a time.
  • To allow for sufficient time to sanitize between services, once service is over we ask that you exit the building promptly.

How to Register for Service

  • Online registration is required for all in-person services so that we can limit the number of people in the building to allow for proper distancing.
  • Registration will be open on the Events page during the week leading up to the Sunday service from Monday morning at 9a to Thursday evening at 8p. This registration time will be the same each week.
  • Each member of your family that is planning to attend must register using the link on the Events page. Once you begin registration, you will be prompted to add another person. You will click through to add each member of your family.
  • Children ages 2 and above are welcome to attend and must be registered online with the rest of their family.
  • We encourage those in the vulnerable population (65+) to worship with us online for the first several weeks of re-gathering. Please use your own discretion.
  • You will have the option to register for either the Sanctuary, Fellowship Hall, or Youth Center. Once a room fills up, no more registrations will be allowed and you will be prompted to select a different room or service time.
  • If all rooms are filled for both services, we encourage you to join us for worship online. If services fill up consistently, we will consider adding an additional service over the weekend to accommodate everyone.
  • When you arrive at church for service, our parking lot crew will direct you to the appropriate parking area based on which room you are registered for.
  • Bathrooms will be open with a limit of 4 people in each bathroom at a time.
