Visiting any church for the very first time can be a tough experience, like being in a maze. Well, we want to put you at ease. Your first visit to Victory Baptist will be refreshing, friendly, and enjoyable for your whole family. We want you to experience inspiring music, helpful teaching and preaching, friendly people, and a place where you feel welcome and “at home”! Here are a few answers to your questions and what you might expect on your first visit.
What can I expect on my first visit?
You can’t miss our growing church building at 8911 Lake Shore Boulevard, not too far from the Headlands and right across from the Blackbrook Golf course entrance, on the north side of the road. Our beautiful 4’X8’ church sign will also help you find us. Our ushers will meet you and direct you to the right classes and services. They can also answer other questions you may have.
Most adults attend the worship service at 11:00 a.m. where they enjoy the beautiful and inspiring music of the choir, special singing groups, and soloists. The music is always followed by a clear, helpful, and challenging Bible message from Pastor Hilditch. This service is a little over one hour in length.
Also, during the 10:00 a.m. hour, there are Sunday School classes for all ages including adults. These classes are smaller group settings where you are invited to meet people, enjoy perhaps some coffee and donuts, and hear a teaching lesson more directly applicable to your life-stage. The best way to get to know people at Victory Baptist Church is to visit a Sunday School class.
Where do I take my children?
Starting with excellent nurseries, there is something special for every age child. At every service there are safe, clean, and highly staffed nurseries for children three years old and under. On Sunday morning at 10:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. there are fun, friendly, and Bible-centered classes for those who are three years old through sixth grade These classes are staffed with trained, friendly, and well-qualified teachers and helpers who will make church exciting and memorable for your child.
There are ushers who would like to help you find the appropriate nurseries, classes, and services for every person in your family each service. They would be glad to show you as well as escort you to your desired destination.
How should I dress?
There is not a dress code at Victory Baptist Church for members or guests. Our ministry leaders and many of our church family dress in more traditional “Sunday” dress; however, our main goal is that you would feel welcome and comfortable on your visit here at Victory Baptist!
Am I Expected to Participate in the Offering?
No. We don’t invite you to Victory Baptist Church for your offering. We want our service to be a gift to you. We hope you will find in this place a warm family spirit, truth from God’s Word, and a place where you can grow in God’s grace. Please don’t feel any obligation to participate in the offering as a guest.
If there’s something we missed on this list, just give us a call, or ask someone when you arrive. Whether you’re new to the area and looking for a church home, or if it’s been a long time since you’ve attended church at all, we hope your first visit at Victory Baptist will be awesome! We exist to serve you and your family, and we are looking forward to meeting you personally. We hope you’ll feel right at home from the very first moment you step onto our property! Let us know how we can serve you better, and we hope to meet you this Sunday!
