…WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 25 – Join us at 7:00pm for Thanksgiving Eve Worship, followed by Pie & Fellowship. If you are able to bring a pie to share, please drop it off before the service.


Christus Victor is partnered with Greenleaf Elementary School for two special programs for the children.  Greenleaf is located at 1333 Galaxie Ave in Apple Valley.

ONE: The collection of new or gently used winter coats, snow boots, snow pants, hats, and waterproof mittens or gloves for sizes 5T through Small Adult.  Please place donations in the bin in the Narthex by the Information Desk.  Volunteers are needed for the distribution of the clothing on November 4th from 4:00pm to 8:00pm and November 5th from 12:00pm to 8:00pm.  Please contact Cindy Baubie at 952-715-2080, 952-431-5435 or for more information.

TWO:  2 volunteers are needed to distribute pre-packaged bags of food to classrooms at Greenleaf.  Choose to come at 4:00 pm – 4:30 pm the day before teachers put the bags in their student’s backpacks or come at 10:00 am – 10:30 am the day the food is put into the backpacks.  Only choose one time each week for both volunteers to work together.  Most weeks will be Thursday/Friday but the schedule varies according to days off school and vacation breaks.  All food bags will be at Greenleaf and a list of classrooms and school map will be provided by the school social worker for the volunteers.  It should take about 30 – 45 minutes to complete the task depending on how many students sign up for the food bags.

Thank you for helping the children!


Paul Oman ArtistCome and join us for a “Drawn to the Word” worship and artistic experience where Artist and Pastor Paul Oman will paint a larger-than-life sized mural before your eyes on Sunday, November 15! Pastor Paul will be painting two separate murals, one at each worship service. This story will unfold artistically, musically, narratively and scripturally during worship. Bring your family, friends, and neighbors for this amazing worship experience! Come and see!


Thanksgiving is a time to thank God for all of our blessings. It is also a time to reach out to families who otherwise might not be able to enjoy a Thanksgiving meal.

The Social Ministries Committee is organizing our 14th year of Thanksgiving Baskets for those in our community who are in need.

How can you help?

  • Prayers for those who will be participating in this great event,
  • Donations can be put in an Adopt-a-Family envelope located at the Welcome Desk then placed in the offering baskets during the worship service. Each Basket costs $40.00 to feed a family of six. A donation of any amount is welcome. Checks should be made payable to Christus Victor with Thanksgiving Baskets noted on the memo line.
  • Volunteer on Saturday, November 21st. This is where the action happens. The event begins at 9:00 am folding boxes, unloading the truck and filling boxes with food items. Volunteers are needed until baskets are distributed and our church is cleaned up. A sign up sheet is located at the Welcome Desk.

Thank you for making this a successful event and helping families in our community know God’s love.
