Victory News – September 28, 2018

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, It took a number of years, a number of surgeries, and a number of counseling sessions. But Tigers Woods is back winning the Tour Championship. Jesus made an even more remarkable comeback. A comeback from death to life. Every day, he comes back with grace and mercy that we need. Do you need to make a comeback? Give up on a pet sin, change your mind about a lifestyle, take back a harsh judgment? The good news…

Through the Fog

Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken. Head In the Clouds…

Victory News – September 21, 2018

PASTOR’S MESSAGE  Dear Friends, Allegations. Threats. It was a really tough week for Christine Blasey Ford and Brett Kavanaugh. All over what supposedly happened 35 years ago. I don’t know what happened 35 years ago between those two if anything. So I will not excuse or blame anyone. But what if what you did in high school or college was brought to the public’s attention? How would that go for you? What if what you said, or even just…

Victory News – September 14, 2018

PASTOR’S MESSAGE  Dear Friends, Don’t leave. A number of years ago, a young man was very frustrated because God wasn’t answering his prayers the way he wanted God to answer them. So in his anger, he left. He walked away, quitting church and Christianity. Last Sunday night, the Chicago Bears were pummeling the Green Bay Packers. It wasn’t even close. And the Packers’ best player was carted off the field before half time. A lot of Packer fans left…

Victory News – September 7, 2018

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear friends, In recent blog posts, we have been looking at “acceptable sins.” These are sins that have so permeated our culture they seem acceptable, but they are not. In this post, I challenge your hearts with a description of a core sin of our culture: lust. More people, both men and women, are viewing pornography than ever before. When it comes to pornography, the excuses sound like this: it’s not hurting anyone, it’s not someone else’s business.…

Hope Despite Change

Psalm 71: 14,18 As for me, I will always have hope; I will praise you more and more… Even when I am old and gray, Do not forsake me, my God, Till I declare your power to the next generation, Your mighty acts to all who are to come. A Visit Home Over Labor Day weekend, I went back to my hometown to spend time with my parents and siblings.  Knowing that I’d eat a lot of junk, I decided…
