Victory News – June 14, 2019

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, This Sunday, we are going to the movies. Not literally. We are not going back to worship in the Cinema. But I will be talking about the movies. You see, screenwriters are some of the best storytellers in the world. Also, they have an incredible ability to diagnose the culture. So what are the modern screenwriters teaching us about the culture? They seem to be saying, “The world is going dark and the villains are winning.”…

Victory News – January 4, 2019

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, New Year’s Resolutions used to be very popular. But, in recent times, New Year’s resolutions have become less and less a part of our lives. I think I know why: because we are tired of failing.  As the time approached for him to be taken up to heaven, Jesus resolutely set out for Jerusalem. (Luke 9:51) This verse said in another way: as the time approached for Jesus to be crucified, he resolutely set out for…

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 – 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…

Victory News – July 27. 2018

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear friends, Hearing someone call your name can mean lots of emotions: pride, confusion, fear, and joy. Fifteen years ago this past week, the call we got shook my family to its core when our daughter was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer.  Jacky’s heart and my heart were already about waist high that morning, because we knew what the doctors were looking for. But when the doctors called us over and the diagnosis came… our hearts splashed onto…

Victory News – July 20, 2018

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear friends, On a scale of one to ten, where would you rate your level of pride in yourself? It won’t be long before pro football players will run, catch, jump up and down, and thump their chests as if to say, “Look at me; I’m the best!” Forgive me, but I don’t see the grocery store bagger going crazy when she packs your plastic bags and set them in your grocery cart. I don’t see sanitation engineers…

Victory News July 7, 2017

Dear Friends, Here are a few things that happened at Victory since Pastor Ben wrote Victory News last Friday – in no particular order and there were a lot more – because God is like that!  1. Branches Band and Pastor Ben led us in worship.  You can review, see for the first time, or share his message here. 2. Two children were adopted by God through baptism (yay Aria and Jared!).  3. Some of our teens and leaders decorated…
