Thank you for your continued prayers as our leadership team navigates the plans for Victory Church services, and for your patience through this journey. There’s nothing quite like being together, worshipping the Lord, and hearing from His Word, and we are so thankful to be able to do so. We will continue to gather at our campuses, as well as offer an online experience, and adjust our plans when necessary, doing our part to care for those around us. Church has looked different, but thankfully we are still seeing people take NEXT STEPS, people have received Jesus as their Savior, and lives are being changed! If you have questions about what our services currently look like, please read the FAQs below.
What will services be like?
We are committed to keeping our facilities clean and safe, including low-touch environments that allow for physical distancing, significantly reduced capacity, and increased cleaning and hand sanitizing stations. Our services are also available to join online, giving an opportunity to participate in Worship and the message, if you prefer to not attend in person. You can find more information about all of our locations, including our online experience by clicking here
What about face coverings?
Face masks are recommended, but not required, for anyone who attends or serves at our services. We want to give everyone the freedom of responsibility to manage their own health. Please be respectful and mindful of others and have conversations without assuming that everyone feels the same way that you do.
Will the café be open?
Currently, in order to provide a low-touch environment coffee is not being served at our cafe. Water bottles are available for free.
Do I have to pre-register for services?
Yes, please. Each Sunday, pre-registration will open on our website for all campuses and all services. We ask that everyone who plans to attend, (adults & kids) please pre-register online for the service. Your pre-registration allows us to ensure we are prepared for the expected number of people in the building, and that we have proper adult-to-kid ratios in our Kids Ministry environments.
What if the auditorium fills up?
We will continue to ask both adults and kids to register for services so that we can be prepared with our limited capacity seating. If auditoriums fill, we will explore the idea of additional services.
Are congregations legally permitted to gather?
In Pennsylvania, churches have been deemed essential and were never required to close. The state has provided recommendations for churches in our Commonwealth, but it does not impose any requirements. Every church is free to make its own decisions regarding the best practices for gathering in a safe way. We are thankful for that, and we want to pass that “freedom of responsibility” on to each of you.
How will we conduct our kid’s ministry?
We’re taking additional steps to keep our environments safe (and fun) for your family. Some of these steps include reduced capacity and increased cleaning for kids and Serve Team members. We will no longer require temperature checks, but ask you, as the parent, to please keep your child home if they have any sign of a cold or sniffles.
What about cleanliness?
Doors will be propped open. All high touch areas will be cleaned before, during, and after services. Service materials (Notes, Connect Cards, etc.) will be digital, instead of being handed out.
Are you still handing out service materials?
Our service environments will be as low-touch as possible. Sermon notes and Connect Cards will be provided digitally. Offering buckets will not be passed during service. Offering stations will be available at each campus, and secure, online giving is available.
