Rev. Jim Erb - Much loved and greatly missed

The Rev. James Ernest Erb, Cowden Road, New Wilmington, passed away at Orchard Manor Nursing Home, Grove City, on Wednesday afternoon, Sept. 13, 2017. He was 83.

But this isn't the story of Jim Erb - husband, father, grandfather, pastor, bishop - and before all else Lover of Jesus Christ.  Pastor of Living Word church (now Victory at New Wilmington) from 1975 through 1997, Pastor Jim led many to Christ, taught many more the ways of God, and modeled for all the life of a committed servant of God.  He is much loved, greatly missed and always remembered. 

 

All Campus Service - We are one

All 8 Campuses are gathering together HERE on October 1st at 6:00pm for a night of unity and worship.  Make plans now to attend and meet some church family members you don’t know yet!

Young Married Couples

We are preparing for September 22nd 6-8pm MARRIED COUPLES NIGHT.  We need to know if you will be coming and head count of kids! Text Jasmine with numbers for you and number of kids.  My number is 724-301-3559.  We will discuss and share nuggets of wisdom concerning "Balancing Work, Kids, and Marriage" as an open forum.  I think snacks/desserts would be fabulous! So let me know if you can bring something along that line . . .even fruit.

Prayer Focus

Please join with all of Victory Christian Center – all 8 campuses – as we focus our prayer on the New Wilmington Campus, Pastors Rob & Mickey Cypher, and all who attend here.   What a blessing to have all this prayer support.
