We invite all Victory Church LifeGroups to be an active part of the Great Commission by serving in our community once a semester.
- Face to face service instead of donation of goods is recommended in this situation as it will more strongly equip your group members in the Great Commission.
- The following opportunities are available, but if you or a group member are connected with another organization or have another idea for serving, go for it.
- Outreaches by groups are funded by the group.
Why Serve as a Group? When you lead your LifeGroup members in an outreach to our community, you are equipping them to fulfill their call as followers of Jesus. (Mark 10:45)
What happens when people serve? They discover that God can work through them to bless others.
The on-going result? Your group members will be bolder in witnessing and serving in their everyday lives! More people will come to know Jesus Christ!
