Victory News – November 29, 2019

MESSAGE OF ENCOURAGEMENT Dear Friends, Last night and early this morning, many of you braved the cold and the crowds hoping to find some deals. And you weren’t alone. According to estimates by the National Retail Federation, people who shop on Black Friday spend an average of just over $1,000 with total sales of over $720 billion across the country.

Victory News – November 1, 2019

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, Recently, Pastor Bill and I were talking and he made this observation: “We are a friendly church, but we are not necessarily a church of friends.” In other words, we are very good at making a first impression and welcoming a guest into church, but we struggle to build deeper relationships. There are lots of reasons for this. Most of us have crammed schedules. Others already have a solid network of friends and family. The blessings…
