On 7th of August, Victory Church held the first national big-screen Alpha film series at MBO Cinema, Citta Mall, drawing over 40 guests to the 50-strong church.
Fifteen children participated in Victory Kids – a fun program catered for children ages seven to eleven years old – conducted by Victory Church children pastors, sis Shaveetha and sis Melanie.
“If we get more people this week, we can book a larger hall and cater for up to 250 people at one time,” shared Pastor Joel Liew of Victory Church. “It always seem hard to bring people to church and talk about faith. But it’s easier to invite them for a movie.”
“The heart of a community for a Malaysian is the shopping mall,” added Pastor Lemuel Yee of Victory Church. “We know that media is the biggest influence for young adults. What better way than the cinema to reach them?”
The session started with worship, followed by Alpha film series on the big-screen and discussion, all happening in the theatre.
Jacqueline Aban Lamit, first-time participant of the Alpha film series shared, “I wanted to join Alpha Film Series because I’ve never heard about it before. I’m curious on the different approach to Christianity.”
First-timer to Alpha Film Series, Yap Kit Chong also shared how he wanted to know more about having a relationship with Jesus, especially after his miraculous healing of his hands after a surgery by the Holy Spirit.
“The people of Ara Damansara is the community where we’re called to be in. No matter where we looked, God had always been directing us back to this place,” shared Pastor Joel.
Victory church was started in Ara Damansara a year and half ago when Pastor Joel Liew joined hands with Pastor Lemuel Yee, growing the church to over 50 people in one year and three months.
Built on Ephesians 3:20, Victory Church prioritized one-to-one discipleship, within a life group who meets weekly.
Now glory be to God, by His mighty power at work within us is able to do far more than we would ever dare to ask or even dream of – infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, or hopes. (Ephesians 3:20)
“It was the perfect timing when Alpha film series was launched – we were moving out, we were trained for Alpha, and the Alpha film series were out,” said Pastor Lemuel.
Army of Three and many other worship bands will be invited for worship for the Alpha Film Series.
