At Victory House parish, Rialto,Ca we are very mindful of the fact that the spirit dwells in a healthy body, that is why we have a varity of programs designed to take care of the social and physical components of our members. Top on the list of our socio-physical programs are social outings and picnics.
Picnics are a huge favorite among our members, both adults and children look forward to every picnic with great enthusiasm and excitement. They provide a conducive environment for maximum expression for all sorts of physical activities: soccer, American football, jogging and walking, sedentary games- ludo, monopoly, scrabble, ayo, music and dancing, or simply basking on the bank enjoying the beautiful weather and environment. We also carry our portable musical sound system to liven the air with danceable music.
We go for our picnics well loaded with a variety of food and drinks. We do barbeque, roast corn and plantain, have ice cream and popsicles, hot dogs, fruit and vegetable salads, hamburgers, suya and sandwiches. At our picnics every one finds his/her special favorite food. Eating and dinning together as a family promotes the spirit of love, unity and strength. We encourage members to invite their friends and neighbors to enjoy our picnics.
Picnics also provides us with a special opportunity to do evangelism. Who knows how the Holy Spirit will use those pieces of literature to affect a soul. We hope to be more dynamic and to be more aggressive in using this opportunity because picnics are very fertile grounds for evangelism since people flood parks on weekends. Picnics are very rewarding for both the body and the spirit.
