Victorious Life Family Worship Center celebrates 7th year Founder’s Day

LAPLACE — This year marks seven years that the Victorious Life Family Worship Center and Apostle Renita and Ambassador Winston Graber have been inspiring, helping and spreading the Good News of Jesus in the St. John Parish community and surrounding areas.

Honoring Apostle Renita and Ambassador Winston Graber, leaders of the LaPlace congregation, was an absolute pleasure, according to the members. Apostle Graber is a leader that works tirelessly to help the people. She is one that actually doesn’t mind being where the action is. She is a servant leader who leads the congregation into many efforts that uplift this community with the purpose of demonstrating that the big, big God she serves is able to do big, big things in the life of anyone who believes.

This past year has marked such a year of great service, even in the midst of the pandemic and Hurricane Ida.

Victorious Life has never stopped moving despite the many challenges.  This church has been an amazing resource of hope. They were on the grounds during Ida from the very beginning distributing food and cleaning items when most of the church, including the pastors, were hit hard by the storm. The church lit up this community during Christmas with a free festival and 1,000 toy give away for the kids and thereafter, started a new AfterSchool program to help bridge the gap for many kids in ways that have gone beyond just education.

VLFWC continues to inspire and bring help and hope to this St. John Community.

The BTG AfterSchool program recently took the kids to the Infinity Space Center in Mississippi. The parents and kids are grateful they get to experience all of this at no cost to them. Youth Director Tawanda Thomas expressed that it is the desire of Apostle Renita Graber and the program “to expose the kids to as many new experiences as possible to inspire them to think outside the box and become greater than they would have ever imagined.” She also remarked that “it is really the lack of positive experiences that put a limit on many kids; because once they are exposed, they see how their strengths and abilities fit in many different industries- even space.”

The experience was beyond what any of the kids expected and they had an amazing time.

This Friday, the program will take over 60 children to the New Orleans Pelicans game. Every day is a new day, Victorious Life doesn’t stop helping because life doesn’t stop.

All children in the community are welcome to come to the Fusion Youth Outreach nights every Thursday at 6 p.m. on the church’s campus at 8896 Richmond Dr. in LaPlace.

Also, the FUSION Summer Camp registration is opening soon. Please Contact the church at 985-212-0553 or go to the church’s website at .
