Fireseeds is the name of our Children’s Church Ministry. We believe in evangelizing the world and raising up future generations to be a strong voice in this darkened and conflicted world. On Sunday Evenings at 6:30pm our Children’s Church Service takes place at the same time as our evening service. The Children’s Church ministers (Myron and Jenny Leavitt) teach fun, structured and meaningful lessons in seasonal curriculums on the children’s level. Our goal is to spark the 6-12 year old age group to center their young lives on Jesus Christ and be a light to others their age in the world. From puppet shows, to plays, God’s message of salvation and redemption comes to life every service. Within this ministry youths are challenged to use their gifts at an early age to serve and share the gospel with the communities they live in. Our Young Servants help those in the community with needs such as yard work for those that are unable and they assist in the services by being actively involved in the curriculum and stir up faith by setting an example for their younger friends, it is evident that Jesus is powerfully at work in our children.
Lifeline is the name of our Teen Ministry. We believe in throwing out the lifeline to the youth of today by raising up a generation of teenagers to help rescue a drowning generation. On Friday Evenings, at least once a month at 7:30pm, Lifeline ministry has a cutting edge, entertaining and insightful lesson. The staff ministers to pertinent issues teenagers face, on their level and in their language. The Lifeline ministers (Pastor Jeremy and Tiffany Meyer) work with our youth hands on through choir, drama teams, etc. to inspire a young army of teenagers to make their mark on the world. Lifeline presents an opportunity to learn about the bible and put those lessons in action by giving them a platform and a voice to carry out the mission of Jesus Christ, and be a light to the world around them.
There are times in life when we all fail. Mistakes are made and we have a difficult time putting our lives back together. Many times the challenge of getting back up and letting God help you recover is more than we can take. This is why we have implemented the Celebrate Recovery program at Victory Chapel. Our desire is to give special focus to those that have addictions, life dominating sins and violations that are very difficult to get past. The recovery group meets every two weeks on Tuesday nights with a tailor made lesson and group sharing to deal with the struggle of recovering. The lessons target these problem areas and are focused on God’s Word and direction to overcome these problem areas. The recovery group is well rounded from teenagers to people forty and up. If you have had long term addictions, life dominating sins or painful violations we encourage to come to a service and ask about the recovery group.
Residing in Jacksonville, Florida puts us in close quarters with the military. There are bases in Jacksonville, Mayport and Kings Bay, Georgia. Since this church was founded in 1989 there has been a steady influx of military men and women into our church. The difficulties and struggles of separation that military families deal with as well as the alcohol heavy lifestyles some military members get involved in creates a great need for spiritual direction in our countries warriors. Many of those that have served in the military are burdened for the active duty members that serve in this stressful environment. The base ministry offers help to those in need through bible studies on base, opening their homes for friendship and fellowship as well as providing transportation to our events throughout the month. If you are a military member in need of help we encourage you to come to our next service and ask about the base ministry.
