PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, One of the greatest challenges for me as a pastor lately is preaching to a camera, wondering if I’m connecting with the people on the other side. I miss meeting with you all and talking with you. Through those conversations, I learn about your successes and your struggles.

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, It’s safe to say that nobody could have predicted our current situation. Who would have thought that much of the world would be locked behind closed doors, fearing the rapid spread of COVID-19?

Victory News – April 3, 2020

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, This Sunday is Palm Sunday. It is the day Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a donkey to the shouts and delight of the people and to the dismay of Pharisees. Maybe you will remember the scene. The disciples were preparing the colt for Jesus to ride into Jerusalem.  One translation says, “[The disciples] cast their garments on the colt.” Casting is an intentional act of relocating an object. So, the disciples took off their garments and…
