Victory News – December 7, 2018

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, Christmas traditions. We all have them. Some of us have the tradition of opening up Christmas presents on Christmas Eve, while others of us open presents on Christmas Day. Some have the tradition of colored lights on the tree, while others only do white. For some, Christmas traditions revolve around the homemade cookies or candies. For some, it is the tradition of having everybody home. I’m sure you are already thinking of a number of traditions…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, Is your tree up? Real or artificial? Are your lights white or colored? What kinds of ornaments do you have? Maybe they are made by the kids, ones that were gifts, or maybe some are family heirlooms. Do you have a star, angel, or something else on top? Maybe you have ribbon on your tree. Do you like how it looks? On Good Friday, the tree was real. There were no lights. In fact, it got…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, Wow. Black Friday deals. I saw large screen TV’s for outrageously low prices. Video games, toys, and jewelry prices slashed. One discount after another. Black Friday is a shopper’s delight. Wow. Good Friday deals. I would have never been able to afford it, not even close. But because of a Good Friday long ago where our Savior was slashed and crucified, our sins were paid for in full. This is not a discount where we still…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, It is that time of year when we cover up with a blanket and sip on a cup of coffee or hot chocolate to stay warm and comfortable. Sometimes as Christians, we cover up what is really going on in our lives. We cover up our hurts by avoiding them and keeping busy. To try to cover up our sins, we do good works. We try to cover up our cold hearts by becoming upset with…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, The struggle is real.  We all go through difficult times, some more so than others. I want you to know Jesus is real too. That doesn’t mean everything is going to be easy and okay right now. But it does mean when you are tempted, Jesus understands because he was tempted too. When you are going through tough times, Jesus knows what that is like. He was there too. When you go through the valley of the…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, Imagine climbing up a platform 500 feet in the air and grabbing the trapeze bar in front of you.  With a deep breath, you swing out. On the back swing you can’t help but notice there is no net below. You swing forward, and as your trapeze reaches its apex you let go and you see your partner waiting for you, upside down, knees tightly clenched around his trapeze, arms outstretched.  You have only one thing left to…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, The Packers and Rams play this weekend. By now, Aaron Rodgers and the team have spent a lot of time studying their play book. Just makes sense, right? As people of God, it just makes sense that you and I would study God’s play book, the Bible, so that we can learn from it and apply it in our lives. God’s Word will remodel, reshape, replace, and rejuvenate you. We all have different likes, different needs…

Victory News – October 19, 2018

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, Horrifically, we were alerted on Monday via text and TV interruption of a young girl who was missing and endangered. As of right now, she has not been found. I think most of us, if we had the opportunity, would volunteer our time to search for her. It is my prayer that she will be found alive and safe by the time you read this. God has a bunch of “missing kids” who are “lost and…

Victory News – October 12, 2018

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, Wow! What a change. We had a record high of 84 degrees earlier this week and this morning we woke up to frost. Talk about a swing. Sometimes that is exactly like our spiritual life. One day we are really tuned in to God in our life, and the next day we really don’t have Him on our minds, let alone in our actions. The good news is Jesus is our constant. He doesn’t change. Hebrews…

Victory News – October 5, 2018

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, It was pouring rain earlier today. Have you ever felt like you have a flood of difficulties and problems in your life? Maybe that storm is emotional, financial, health-related or relational. Maybe it is the stress and demands of family life or the burden of loneliness. Sometimes in life we magnify our problems and minimize our God. We think and feel like the storms in life are bigger than our God. The $1 billion in damage…

Victory News – September 28, 2018

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, It took a number of years, a number of surgeries, and a number of counseling sessions. But Tigers Woods is back winning the Tour Championship. Jesus made an even more remarkable comeback. A comeback from death to life. Every day, he comes back with grace and mercy that we need. Do you need to make a comeback? Give up on a pet sin, change your mind about a lifestyle, take back a harsh judgment? The good news…
