Serve Our Neighbor
"whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted (Matthew 23:12)."
"You see foot washing isn’t about foot washing, it’s about serving others at personal sacrifice, humbling ourselves when we don’t have to--because we don’t have to. It’s people eager to serve instead of sitting waiting to be served.And it is Christ's love and grace that enables us to do these things and to serve our neighbor. It is only through the Holy Spirit that we are empowered to serve one another, to share His love and His grace through our service. You see, Jesus has freed us from our sin and has enabled us to be free to serve others."

Did you know that Christ Victorious supports missions and ministry throughout the world by means of mite box offerings? You can be a part of this mission too!
It's easy - just pick up a mite box (available on the counter in the lobby) and set it in a visible place at home. Throughout the month place your loose change into the mite box. Then, the first Sunday of each month, bring to church whatever mites you have collected. Mite offerings are then submitted to the MN South District where they are combined with other MN South District congregation mites to fund mission grants all over the world!
