Victory News – July 23, 2021

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, Without good friends we just aren’t going to be able to make it in this life. At least that’s what Solomon, the wisest man who ever lived, once said: One who has unreliable friends soon comes to ruin,     but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother. (Proverbs 18:24)   When you need financial support, a friend will be there to help you get by. When you are depressed or anxious, a…

Victory News – July 16, 2021

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, As a little boy, I was afraid of the dark. As I got older, the fears kept coming. I was afraid of failing tests, getting cut from the team, not getting a Call into the ministry, of failing as a husband and father, that our daughter was going to die. Do you see a pattern? How about you? Do you have any fears? This weekend we are continuing our series David: The (im)Perfect King. In this…

Victory News – July 9, 2021

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, This weekend starts a new sermon series based on the life of David. David is one of the most important characters in the story of our salvation. Even before he was king, David defeated Israel’s great enemy, Goliath. He virtuously stood up to King Saul’s threats. He wrote many of Israel’s most famous prayers in the book of Psalms. And, as king, he funded the building of Solomon’s Temple. Yet, what the Lord valued most in…

Victory News – July 2, 2021

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, How are you going to celebrate your freedom this Independence Day? As we look around this Independence Day, we may not see freedom amidst the widespread slavery to guilt we feel within ourselves and see in others. Guilt isn’t remedied by ideology. It is only fixed by Jesus. I may not know the sins that are plaguing you, but I know what Jesus did. He died and paid for your sin, whatever it is. If you…

Victory News – June 25, 2021

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, We were doing some deep cleaning around the house not long ago and we ran into a few bins filled with pictures. One was a picture of eight year old me in my football uniform. When I saw that picture, my mind raced back to the brown dry grass football field of Album Park that we used to play on every Saturday morning in the fall. Parents would line the field, cheering us on. An announcer…

Victory News – June 18, 2021

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, What if you were offered a job where you are in charge? You set the vision, goals, and manage the whole thing. This job just might be the most important job you could ever have. And it will likely be the most difficult job you ever have. It is an honorable job, but it can also be very humiliating. Any idea what job I am talking about? Parenting. Parenting can be exceptionally hard. No two kids…

Victory News – June 11, 2021

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, Last week was our first week with all our chairs back in the worship space, no masks requirements, and the beginnings of the Victory Cafe with coffee and cookies. A worship band member said that it felt like there was a lot of energy in the room. I agree. It was such a blessing to see so many of you, talk with you, and encourage one another. I praise God for all the ways that we…

Victory News – June 4, 2021

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, Truett Cathy was the founder of Chick-Fil-A restaurants. The business had a very humble beginning in 1946 with one small restaurant called The Dwarf Grill.  It was in this little restaurant that Truett and his brother came up with the chicken sandwich that so many of us enjoy six days a week. It took 21 more years before the first Chick-Fil-A restaurant was established in Atlanta. In the years that followed, Chick-Fil-A became a southern restaurant…

Victory News – May 28, 2021

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, The famous psychologist Victor Frankl used to say, “A person who has a WHY to live for can endure any HOW.” What he meant is that we are purpose-driven creatures. We need to believe that what we do matters or we will eventually give up. Do you always find meaning and purpose in the work that you do? Or do you sometimes find yourself wondering, Does what I do really matter?  One way to find purpose…
