Back in the Old Testament whenever an event of significance or a spiritual event took place the people would build an altar at the location and offer some type of sacrifice. This served as a memorial ground for future generations and a way to retell the story of what God had done to future generations. A number of years ago we tried to come up with a way of celebrating what God is doing here at Southeast. This special celebration to highlight what God has been doing in and through our church is called Victory Weekend. Today we celebrate 2,202 victories evidenced this year by those who were baptized into Christ or who committed to membership here Southeast. Today we are not celebrating because of the number; we are celebrating because each one is a life that has been changed through coming into a relationship with Jesus Christ.
