Victory News – May 31, 2019

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, This Sunday we are going to have “The Talk”. That’s right, the “birds and the bees”.  We need to have this talk because everyone else is already talking about it. There is so much bad information out there. In addition, this subject is a source of so much pain and suffering.

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, You don’t have to come to church. What I mean is…society has changed; nobody pressures you to worship in a Christian church. That’s not how it has always been in the US. It used to be that if you wanted to get anywhere in business or politics, then you needed to go to church. The church was where people met friends and built their community. But not anymore. In fact, if you come to church, you…
