Victory News – October 1, 2021

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, How would you summarize the message of most politically-driven media? Let’s start by describing what you would hear from the other side, whatever the other side means to you. You’d probably hear something like, “Those people on the other side are getting in our way. They are hurting our nation, our democracy. They are stopping political progress.” Now let’s say you turned the channel back to your side. What is the message you would hear? Probably…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, Things don’t always turn out as we expect them. For example, the craft on Pinterest looks great but what you made doesn’t look anything like it. Your team loses even though they were a heavy favorite. You go to check your email but there is no internet connection. You learn that your favorite pizza place no longer does delivery. Sometimes our expectations are not met because we have unrealistic expectations. I still think I can put…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, We are purpose-driven creatures. That’s how God designed us. We need a reason to get out of bed in the morning. So what is your greater purpose? What has God called you to do? In last week’s sermon, we heard that God gave Nehemiah a big purpose. He was called to rebuild the walls around Jerusalem that had been torn down from the Babylonian invasion. But how could he accomplish such a big vision? He needed…

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…

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, 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…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, I hope you have enjoyed this sermon series as much as I have. It has been such a blessing to study, preach, listen, and learn about Jesus’ resurrection appearances. Each message continues to give me hope in the darkness. Jesus really did rise from the dead. The early followers of Jesus told us so. But maybe you are like me. Maybe you don’t just want to hear evidence about Jesus’ resurrection. Maybe you want to experience…

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, God is an extravagant giver. Consider what Martin Luther said about God’s generosity: “I believe that God made me and every creature and that he gave me my body and soul, eyes, ears and all my members, my mind and all my abilities. And I believe that God still preserves me by richly and daily providing clothing and shoes, food and drink, house and home, spouse and children, property and all I own, and all that…

Victory News – September 25, 2020

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, Do you feel like your world is spinning out of control? Are you depressed, anxious, or losing hope? I think much of our emotional discomfort comes from trying to control what is out of our control. On the other hand, peace and purpose come from focusing on what we can control. Our hope will be restored when we meditate on the promises of God. Below are three lists to help you move from anxiety and despair…

Victory News – September 18, 2020

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, 2020 has destroyed my habits and routines. I had daily habits of Bible reading, exercise, office work, and in-person meetings. And I had weekly habits of going to the grocery store and preparing for in-person worship. But all those habits and routines have been challenged and changed at some level. So now I’m asking myself, “What do I do now? What are my new habits and routines?” In our new sermon series Path to Victory, we’re…
