New Life Safety Team
Emergencies can happen anywhere, even in church.  It could be a medical emergency, a tornado emergency, a child safety issue, a bomb threat, robbery, physical assault, or the increasing incidents of an active shooter in schools and churches. Victory Memorial is in the process of training a “Life Safety Team” to respond in case of all these emergencies.  We have sent a team to training and will be training others in the near future.

As a result, there will be some changes on Sunday mornings.  We will have certain doors locked on Sunday mornings so as to lessen the chances of any safety issues.  The doors will be clearly marked with a sign.  This may take some time to get used to but it will result in a greater degree of overall safety for our church family.  You may have to change your routine a bit.  You may have to check your young children in and out of the nursery on Sunday mornings.  Many of these safety measures are already being used in other communities.  

We are proud to be able to provide this added level of safety for our church family.  If you have any questions, please feel free to call Pastor Gary or stop by the office.

Children’s Offering for Classroom in Liberia
On the first Sunday of each month we will have a “Children’s Noise Change Offering” for Missions. Our goal is to furnish at least one classroom at our New Hope Academy School in Liberia, Africa at the cost of $1000. This will provide furniture, supplies, etc. for one classroom. All donations for the noisy offering will be greatly appreciated. It will be an ongoing project. Other donations can be given if desired and clearly marked for “New Hope Academy School”. Additional classrooms may be supplied as needed. We are now well on our way to furnishing a third classroom!

Upper Rooms 
The September/October Upper Room Devotionals are now available in the church office or at any of the church entrances.  Pick up one for yourself, your family, your friends...they’re absolutely free and a great read! 

Easy Giving 
You can now give to the church electronically!  There are two new Kiosks which are set up every Sunday morning for anyone to use.  Both are located in the Archives room (back of the Sanctuary) located nears signs that say "Giving Center."  You can also click the link on the right hand side of our home page ( either while on your computer or smartphone to give.  From either of those, you can bookmark the page for quick and easy access.  Let us know if you have any questions or need help with anything! 

Church Notifications 
Very rarely are church services, committee meetings, etc. cancelled, but when they are we always will send out notifications. The quickest and easiest ways we are able to contact our members is by sending both an email and text message out, along with posting something on Facebook.  If you would like to be added to one (or both) of these lists, please let the church office know! Word of mouth has always been great, too, so if you know someone who can’t receive a notification from us, please help us out by passing the word along!
