On May 2nd from 7 to 8:30 pm Victor Valley's Student Ministry will be hosting a Youth Worship night as part of this year's 30 Hour Fast activities. The idea is to provide an evening where youth from around the valley can come to enjoy a time of worship and prayer. We have invited several youth groups from churches around the High desert to come and experience a worship concert led by VVCC's youth worship team. We have also invited another local youth pastor to lead a time of prayer where we will specifically focus on praying for the safety of our schools, the salvations of the students that attend those schools and for the families represented by those students, that they may find a local church to speak the gospel into their lives.
The music featured during this evening will be contemporary Christian Rock and worship music that will provide an exciting atmosphere for students to center into a time of worship and to have a good time together.
Feel free to plan on joining us as we launch what we hope will be an exciting worship event that could possibly take place several times a year at various locations throughout the High Desert.

Easter is nearly here, so let me be the first to say "Happy Easter". Our hope is that this year you will experience the blessings and power of God as you celebrate the most world-changing, life-altering event in human history... the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
This year as we gather to celebrate Easter at Victor Valley we will be reminded that the Easter story is really a three day story with three significant, identifiable days. Friday, Saturday and Sunday brought trouble, silence, and then finally, deliverance. Perhaps we can look upon the challenging events of our lives as three days stories as well with each day bringing its own dose of panic, confusion, and relief.
Easter will also kick off for Victor Valley a new series called, Hope Rising. Through the course of this series we want to take the focus off of the turmoil in life and place it on the hope that can and will see us through these challenges in our stories. For some it seems as though all hope is lost while others rely on their hope to see them through a difficult spell. Obviously hope is crucial and it down not have to be lost.
Our prayer is that as you consider the source of your hope this Easter, that hope will rise within you resulting in a renewed strength to endure and overcome through the power of Jesus' resurrection. So whether your "hope tank" is overflowing or running dry may you experience Hope Rising in the love of God, the life of Jesus, and the power of the Holy Spirit, and in community with others. We hope to see you this Sunday at one of our Easter services.
