Victory News – May 4, 2018

Pastor’s Message Hi Friends, May 3 was National Day of Prayer. Thankfully, we don’t have to wait for a National Day of Prayer to pray.

That is exciting news because so often we live with the guilt, the shame, the regrets, and the resentment of the past. Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you…

Hi Friends, How are your Easter preparations coming along?  There is so much to do. For some, it is buying, making, or baking for the Easter baskets, or Easter dinner  . . . and don’t forget about the Easter breakfast at the Victory Café.
