The annual Victory Christian Church harvest party was extra special this year as members of the congregation burned their mortgage. The fellowship was founded in 1993 by Jim and Brenda Pradke and went from meeting in their living room to the old California Township school building. In 1996 the congregation bought a vacant church building on the north edge of Toto in 1996. Within a few months attendance increased by one-third.
In addition to making their monthly mortgage payments, the congregation has also completed a number of other improvements to the building. These include replacing the roof, reorienting the sanctuary and adding 200 upholstered chairs, sidewalk and pavement upgrades and the addition of a substantial enclosed playground and a lawn care building with an attached picnic shelter.
