Victory News – January 22, 2021

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, What would you do if you had an extra hour each day? Time is one of the precious gifts of God.  But many of us seem to have an unhealthy relationship with time. We say things like: “Let me say a quick prayer.” “Hurry. We are going to be late.” “Time is money.” Have you ever looked up at the clock and said, “Time got away from me.” Many of us schedule our days tightly so…

Victory News – January 8, 2021

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, So many things have happened in the last year. Not all those things were bad. One of the things that the pandemic has afforded us is the opportunity to slow down and get a handle on our frantic pace of life. That is one reason why our teaching series to start off 2021 is called Renewed. This is a foundational series that is designed to help us get a handle on our lives. Last Sunday, Pastor…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, Road signs don’t seem that important… until they are. When Jacky and I were on our intern year, we lived in Vassar, Michigan. After the Christmas Day service, we hopped in our car and began our trip back to Milwaukee to spend the holiday with her family. It was an uneventful trip, except that I missed the sign for I-94 West. I found I-94 but not I-94 West. We were going east instead of west. So…

Victory News – December 4, 2020

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, This past year, you and I have spent a lot of time waiting and hoping. You have waited in lines at grocery stores and you have waited for lifted restrictions. You are waiting for a vaccine, or perhaps change in relationship status or financial standing. Maybe you are waiting for a diagnosis. We have been waiting in the dark for most of the year. The Sunday, we are beginning our Christmas series, “Light in the Darkness.”…

Victory News – November 27, 2020

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, For many of us this Thanksgiving was drastically different than in the past. Whatever your Thanksgiving looked like, I hope and pray your stomach was full of food and that your heart was full of gratitude to God. As I scanned social media and talked with family and friends, I heard a number of comments about how people wished they were with their extended families but they were also glad that were able to keep their…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, God gave us five senses: hearing, sight, smell, taste, and touch. Which one do you think is the most valuable? Hopefully, you recognize that this question is invalid. We were made to have all five senses. If one of them is missing, or if one of them tries to do something it is not supposed to do, it just doesn’t work. Imagine an ear trying to be in charge of the sense of taste. We would…

Victory News – October 30, 2020

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, As Christians living in the United States, we have a unique privilege that many people throughout history did not have: the privilege of voting. As a Christian, what are you using to inform your voting? Are you using TV ads? TV shows on FOX, CNN, MSNBC? social media ads? your friend’s opinion? the platforms of each party? the debates? How about the Bible? God is going to use you and me to re-elect or elect the…

Victory News – October 16, 2020

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, What are some of your qualifications? When a person is applying for a job, they need to be able to meet a list of qualifications. Some of those can be learned. But some of those qualifications need to be present on day one. And this doesn’t just apply to jobs. When I started running marathons, I didn’t start with the Boston Marathon. In fact, I had to qualify for the Boston Marathon to be allowed to…

Victory News – October 2, 2020

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, God is an extravagant giver. Consider what Martin Luther said about God’s generosity: “I believe that God made me and every creature and that he gave me my body and soul, eyes, ears and all my members, my mind and all my abilities. And I believe that God still preserves me by richly and daily providing clothing and shoes, food and drink, house and home, spouse and children, property and all I own, and all that…
