God is Powerful in Your Story

Dear friends, My fourth grade teacher teacher would read to us over lunch time.  One of the stories she read was Old Yeller.  I don’t know if you have ever even heard of Old Yeller but it is a story of love and loss.  In the story, a yellow rugged looking dog comes for an uninvited stay with a young boy named Travis and his family.

Victory News July 7, 2017

Dear Friends, Here are a few things that happened at Victory since Pastor Ben wrote Victory News last Friday – in no particular order and there were a lot more – because God is like that!  1. Branches Band and Pastor Ben led us in worship.  You can review, see for the first time, or share his message here. 2. Two children were adopted by God through baptism (yay Aria and Jared!).  3. Some of our teens and leaders decorated…
