You know you live a rich life when it takes an entire hand to count all of the events happening in a single day that are all connected in some way for the sake of the Kingdom!
Victory Compassion Ministries was blessed to be a part many wonderful events around our city. Here are a few we want to highlight...
We had our Compassion 5K event at Roosevelt Park bright and early Saturday morning. There were many people and families who came out and it was truly a wonderful time! We are so very thankful to all of our sponsors! Especially Trolio's for being our timing service, and donating all of our T-shirts and medals, and Chick-fil-A for donating delicious sandwiches! We also would like to thank our incredible volunteers. Steve and Maria Hoffmaster putting in countless hours of canvassing, donated water, granola bars, and apples, and putting together several lovely baskets for our drawing! Alyssa Jones organized all our registrations, Suzie Dobson went above and beyond to take care of tables, Danny Yergan got the sounds system, and the list goes on! To all of our volunteers (Danielle Vitto, Alisha Hetherington, Mark & Alan Summers, Jennifer Miller, Joelle Johnson, Maranda Fordley, & Nicole Bone) thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all you did to help make this day a success! We couldn't have done it without each of you!
Another event that took place Saturday afternoon was the Lincoln Knolls Better Block that our friends at the YNDC hosted right down the road from our community center. The Linc busted out the Victory Kids bounce house and set up a cookie decorating table for the kids! The whole afternoon was full of life! It was truly such a pleasure to get to meet more people in the community we love so very much. A huge thanks to Derrick McDowell, Amanda Prentice, and Phil Macri for representing the Linc at this event and revealing Jesus to all who came!
