Baby Monitors - Our baby monitors are currently iPhones that were donated to us from a local business who was upgrading phones throughout their organization a couple years ago.  An increasing number of those phones are struggling to hold a charge and die before a child's nap is over.  If anyone has an old smartphone (it does not need to be an iPhone) they would be willing to donate for a baby room monitor, please contact Bro. Byron Gerber. We will wipe them clean if that is not done yet and install our required apps.

Nursing Home - Victory Home Care  -  Is now up and running.  We are actively looking for compassionate caregivers to assist us in caring for seniors that choose to remain in their own homes.  This is a paid position. This service is a joint venture between the Roanoke and Eureka Homes and will serve the Woodford, Tazewell and Marshall counties.  Caregivers do not have to be a C.N.A. or have prior experience, as training will be provided.  We are looking for caring individuals that have a desire to serve the senior population.  If you feel this is a way you could be used to help advance the senior care options that the Home offers, please contact the Home for more information. 

Welcome - We are thankful for all of the friends from our community who worship with us.  We warmly welcome several who have decided to regularly attend our Roanoke Church.
  • Ben and Brittany Hodel and their daughters: Lyla (5), Sylvie (3), and Mabel (1) 
  • Martha King
