The city was packed. Visitors to the city easily outnumbered the residents 10-1. Many people were excited to visit the big city. For some of them, it was their first time. They were ready to celebrate!
But there was also tension. There was pressure. There was animosity. People were behaving poorly on both sides. Some feared a riot was going to break out. The army patrolled streets in mass and in force.
Suddenly there was a great commotion. There was loud cheering. The roar of the crowd could be heard for blocks. Why all the commotion? Jesus was coming into town. The whole city was stirred and asked, “Who is this? Who is this Jesus?”
Who is Jesus? is the question we will be asking and answering during our Holy Week worship services beginning this Sunday.
Invite a family member or friend to come to the ministry center or worship online and answer the question Who is Jesus?.
Reaching today’s people with Christ’s victory,

Easter Egg Hunt – Last Saturday, Victory hosted our first-ever Easter Egg Hunt. We had over 50 families participate in this event, many of whom have never had any interaction with Victory. We received great feedback on the event and had the opportunity to be the hands and feet of Jesus for our community. Thank you to Cassy for coordinating the event and to those of you who volunteered your time, donated items, and participated in the event.
