Our Doors are Open

After a significant amount of prayer and preparation, We’ve opened our doors! We’re committed to creating a safe worship experience. To make that possible, our weekend services have been redesigned to create a sanitary environment that allows for physical distancing.

In light of Governor Wolf’s mandate to restrict large gatherings, we believe our doors should remain open. We are going to continue to have services both in person and online. It’s in times like these that the church should play a role as a place of refuge… a place where anyone can come to pray, worship, find healing and hope.

We’ve been grateful for the ability to worship together online, and we encourage you to continue to attend Victory Family Church online if you or a family member does not feel well, or if you’re just not ready to attend church at a physical location yet. You’re part of the Victory family no matter where or how you choose to attend!

Online church is also a great option if you want to invite a friend to join you! You can head over to Facebook, YouTube, or live.lifeatvictory.com to experience worship, a message, and the community of your church family through live chat and prayer.


We are Victory FAMILY Church, which means our doors are open to the whole family! All of our kids classrooms will be fully operational, however, if you choose to put your child into their classroom you voluntarily assume all risks associated with exposure to COVID-19. As a parent, you understand that social distancing children is not that simple, but the safety and well-being of our Victory family is very important to us, so we have taken the following precautions:

  • Every volunteer will go through a screening process, including a health questionnaire and temperature check before being admitted to serve in the classrooms.
  • Check-in screens will be wiped down after each use.
  • Every child will receive a temperature check before entering their classroom.
  • Rooms, toys, and surfaces will be disinfected before and after each service.
  • No snacks will be served in the classrooms.
  • Soft play room will remain closed until further notice.

Online Resources

While we understand that you might not feel comfortable putting your child back into their classroom just yet, we still encourage you to continue teaching your kids about Jesus using these Victory Kids’ lessons.

Your middle school and high school students can stay tuned to our Echo and SOZO social media platforms for relevant content and online services.


If you have students, stay connected to our Parent Connect Facebook Groups, Facebook pages, and Instagram pages for live services, updates, and additional communication. You can navigate to our Parent Connect Groups by clicking here: facebook.com/pg/lifeatvictory/groups.

New Castle Campus Only
  • This campus meets in a public school and therefore the state has mandated that masks be strongly encouraged and all attendees have their temperatures checked before entering the building.

  • Based on CDC guidelines, we encourage you to wear a mask.
  • Wash your hands and use hand sanitizer often.
  • Maintain a distance of six feet between yourself and other guests.
How can I connect with other believers during this time?
We value connection and believe one of the best ways to develop relationships is through participation in a small group. We have a variety of small groups that are meeting online or in appropriate settings. Check out our small group finder and join a group!
