Victory News – July 3, 2020

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, Happy Independence Day Weekend! This Fourth of July is different than any I have experienced. But we are free: free to vote for whomever we choose, free to seek employment from any company, free to worship. Free. The national freedom you and I have isn’t because a number of people signed a declaration. The freedom that you and I have is because of the courage found on a battlefield. We have freedom because lives were lost.…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, There is a stunning parable in Matthew 18. In the parable, an earthly story with a heavenly meaning, a man owes the king 10,000 bags of gold. The man didn’t have any resources to pay off the debt. The king decrees that he and his family be sold off until the debt is paid in full. The man fell on his knees, begging the king for mercy and for more time to pay off the debt.…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, This week, I had a fascinating interview about equality and value with JoJo Moore. I have known JoJo for almost four years.  JoJo is on our leadership team and brings a Scriptural, loving, and practical perspective to present-day issues. You can watch the interview on our Facebook page and YouTube channel tonight at 7:00pm. This weekend, we are going to interrupt our sermon series to talk about what has been on the news for about the…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, With all the concerns of the pandemic and people’s physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health, Memorial Day Weekend caught me off guard. And that’s not a good thing. This weekend, we remember the soldiers who were not confined to their homes, but to a foreign land. Confined not to a 4-bedroom home but to a fox hole. Confined not to ordering online or curbside but to hunger as they waited for the canned rations to arrive.…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, Two months into the pandemic, with breaking news and conflicted news, with loss of life and loss of jobs, and with differing opinions, anxiety is running high in the lives of many people. I ran across this chart last week on Christian Family Solution’s Facebook page. I thought I was handling everything well and then I saw this chart. How many of the descriptions in the chart apply to you? I’m glad this chart made me…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, When I was about seven years old, I made a costly mistake when I played golf between our house and our neighbor’s house. Sounds kind of silly, doesn’t it? It gets better though. Because instead of using a golf club I was using a baseball bat. I teed the ball up and swung away! And the ball went right through our neighbor’s window. That was costly. In fact, the cost was more than I could pay.…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, We live in what has been called the Information Age. With one click on my computer, I can read blogs, watch the news, read books, get reports on stocks, find sports highlights, and a whole lot more. I have been told there is more information in the Sunday edition of the New York Times than people just generations ago received in a lifetime. I don’t know if that is true or not . . . and…

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…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, We are all in a storm. The storm looks different for different people. Government officials and business owners are having to make difficult decisions. Some have had their hours cut and others have lost their jobs, at least temporarily. Others are working many hours away from family and friends but their hearts yearn to be at home. The medical professionals are right in the middle of the storm. Some of us are on a search to…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, Things changed, literally overnight, when I moved from Texas to Wisconsin to go to college. Culture shock set in. Here are a few of the differences: I went to a high school with almost 5,000 students and then I went to college with not quite 250 students. Friday nights were about football in Texas, along with all-you-can-eat enchiladas, tacos, burritos, quesadillas, and sopapillas. In Wisconsin, Friday nights were about all you can eat fish fry. In…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, Did you ever fight with your brother or sister? Did you ever feel like you were getting the short end of the stick? Sibling rivalry and messy families go hand in hand. Sibling rivalry often starts not long after the birth of the second child. Siblings can be tough on one another. This rivalry is made up of fighting, competition, and jealousy as the children strive for significance and acceptance from their parents and their peer…

Victory News – February 7, 2020

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, Last night I asked Jacky, “What’s for supper?” She responded, “Remember, I told you we were going to have left-overs.” My heart sank. I mean, the meals throughout the week were good, but I just wasn’t in the mood for eating food that was staining the bottom and the sides of the Glad containers with an orange tint. Moments later, Jacky went to the refrigerator to grab all the containers for the random mix and match…
