Victory News – July 30, 2021

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, In an international cross-country race in December of 2012, a Kenyan athlete was winning. Unfortunately, he became confused with the race signage. He stopped, thinking he had crossed the finish line and won the race. But the finish line was actually a few yards away. The Spanish runner in second place was coming up quickly. He knew where the real finish line was. He started shouting to the runner ahead of him to keep going. But…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, As a teenager was getting ready to leave for prom, his father and mother stopped and prayed with him. The father prayed that his Son would enjoy the evening, that the time spent with others would be a blessing to him and to them.  As the limo pulled up, his father said, “Son, don’t forget whose son you are.” In our baptisms, God poured out his grace on us and adopted us into his family. We…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, This weekend we are beginning a new series entitled Called: Finding Your Role in God’s Work. In this series, we will see that God has called us to our specific roles in life to do His work. He is the one who has called us to be mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, employers, employees, and citizens. No matter who we are, we all have a role to carry out in God’s kingdom. This Sunday, we are going…

Victory News – April 23, 2021

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, Have you ever doubted God’s existence? God’s plan for you? That God is on your side? That He knows what He is doing? Have you ever doubted that he forgives you? We all struggle with doubt from time to time, yet we often pretend like we have it all together. Doubts often happen when our circumstances are different than what we think they should be, like when someone gets sick, or worse. Here is a key:…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, This past Monday, the Baylor’s men basketball team won the NCAA Tournament Championship, denying an undefeated season and national championship for Gonzaga. Back in 1993, Chris Webber rebounded a missed free throw in Michigan’s national championship game versus North Carolina. With just under 20 seconds left and down by two, Webber hastily dribbled the ball down court. Failing to realize his team had no timeouts left, he called a timeout. Michigan was assessed a technical foul…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, The city was packed.  Visitors to the city easily outnumbered the residents 10-1. Many people were excited to visit the big city. For some of them, it was their first time. They were ready to celebrate! But there was also tension. There was pressure. There was animosity. People were behaving poorly on both sides. Some feared a riot was going to break out. The army patrolled streets in mass and in force. Suddenly there was a…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, What is your most powerful muscle? If you go to a fitness center you can see people working on their abs, their glutes, their biceps, triceps and more. As you work out, you notice that some muscles are stronger than others. But hopefully everyone is there to get stronger on their own and not to compare with others. As you consider your body, what is the most powerful muscle you have? No matter who you are,…
