Victory News – January 25, 2019

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, Song lyrics. Stats. Things other people did to us. We remember a lot of things. Sometimes we just go on auto-pilot because we know how to do something or how to get somewhere. Growing up, we had this assignment in Confirmation class called memory work. Our students still have it today. I remember giving the Christmas assignment to a Confirmation class years ago: learn Luke 2:1-20 … 20 verses. One of the students, who was bright…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, Anticipation… a snowstorm is coming! There used to be days when I would lose sleep over this. I always wanted the storm to bring more snow that predicted!

Life can be overwhelming if we focus in on the what is going on or trying to figure out the why this is happening. And you know what we try to do,…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, New Year’s Resolutions used to be very popular. But, in recent times, New Year’s resolutions have become less and less a part of our lives. I think I know why: because we are tired of failing.  As the time approached for him to be taken up to heaven, Jesus resolutely set out for Jerusalem. (Luke 9:51) This verse said in another way: as the time approached for Jesus to be crucified, he resolutely set out for…

Attitude Adjustment

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: the old has gone, the new is here! (2 Corinthians 5:17) Post-Christmas Funk December 26th. You might recognize the date as the day after Christmas. And let me tell you… I was in a mood.
