Life Under the Sun

Dear Friends, I heard a great quote in conversation yesterday: “Life without the Gospel is like rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic.” Yikes, huh! But that’s also why I’m really excited to take you on a journey with me into a new sermon series starting this Sunday on the Old Testament book of Ecclesiastes. Go ahead and read through it before Sunday. It’s only 12 chapters long. You can read it out loud in 40 minutes. Give it a…

Victory News

Dear Friends, Do you ever feel pressured? Do you ever feel stressed? Do you ever feel tired? Come to church this Sunday and be refreshed! That’s right…refreshed. Ahhhhh. I am very excited to wrap up our series Catch the Wave by sharing what I believe will be a very helpful sermon this Sunday. I want to help all of us not only be refreshed by the gospel, but also see ourselves as refreshing people with the gospel. Imagine if inviting…

I hope you could tell I…

Weekly Victory News

Dear Friends, Many well-meaning Christian people have this crazy idea that sharing Jesus is complicated. They’re self-conscious that only those who’ve got the Bible memorized should try it. Well… No one’s got the Bible memorized. So sharing Jesus has got to be simpler than we think. Look back at the early Church. You’ll see believers just living their faith and loving each other. And the Lord kept adding to their number daily those who were being saved! Turns out, faith…

Catch the Wave

Dear Friends, When Jesus told his disciples they would be his witnesses to the ends of the earth, he wasn’t kidding. You’d be surprised by the magnitude of God’s work through his Church all over the world! Join us this Sunday for the kickoff of a new sermon series called “Catch the Wave!” We’ll begin a 4 week trip through the first couple chapters of the book of Acts by studying Acts 1:6-11. So come and catch the wave. It’s a whole…
