Visiting a new church can be intimidating: What should I wear? Where do I park? Where do my kids go?
We understand the many thoughts that can come from visiting a new church, so we want you to feel completely comfortable when you visit. Below are some frequently asked questions. If you have any additional questions, don’t hesitate to contact us.
Service times are Sundays at 10 AM and services are identical so it doesn’t matter which one you choose to attend. We also offer full children’s ministries from Ages 0 to grade 8.
We are located at 74 Penticton Avenue, Penticton BC. We have our own parking lot directly behind our building with other space available on the surrounding streets.
What will the experience be like?
Our service experience includes worship, music, and a message. We’ll also throw in some media and lights just to keep things interesting. The music is led by a worship leader along with a live band featuring today’s music. The message is always focused on the Bible, addressing the real issues that real people face in their daily lives. You can expect to be both encouraged and challenged by Pastor Ron(or one of the other teaching pastors.) The Sunday service lasts for 90 minutes. You will find a friendly environment where everyone is welcomed. We have complimentary coffee available after each service or you can splurge on a specialty coffee from our coffee bar.
How early should I get there?
Plan on arriving 10-15 minutes before the service starts; that will give you time to park, check your kids in to their classrooms, and grab a drink at our coffee bar before the service begins. Then you’ll want to make sure you get into the auditorium before the music starts. We’ll give you a heads up when we’re about to begin.
What should I wear?
Don’t worry about wearing “your very best” to Victory Church. We dress pretty casually around here. Ultimately, we want you to feel comfortable. After all, we are thrilled that you’re joining us and want you to be more focused on the service than what you’re wearing. In the summertime, it’s not uncommon to see people wearing sandals, shorts, and a shirt. Others prefer to still put on their “Sunday best,” and that’s fine too! We think you’ll fit in no matter how you dress.
What about my kids?
All of our Children’s Ministries are led by an amazing team of staff who will be there each week to care for your child.
**By the way, we utilize a check-in system that ensures a safe environment for your child and also allows for efficient drop-off and pick-up for parents.
