Victory News – November 20, 2020

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, Recently, I met with my doctor, and I asked her, “What should I be doing to stay healthy during the pandemic?” She said, “The most important thing you can do is strengthen your immune system. You can do that by taking more Vitamin C and D.” She went on to explain that we can’t always stop all the attacks that are coming from the outside. But we can make ourselves as strong as possible on the…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, God gave us five senses: hearing, sight, smell, taste, and touch. Which one do you think is the most valuable? Hopefully, you recognize that this question is invalid. We were made to have all five senses. If one of them is missing, or if one of them tries to do something it is not supposed to do, it just doesn’t work. Imagine an ear trying to be in charge of the sense of taste. We would…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, In his book Unshakable Hope, Max Lucado writes: “Two people set out to build their homes. The first went to RPF Home Supply (Regrets, Pain, and Fear). He ordered lumber that was rotted by guilt, nails that were rusting from pain, and the cement that was watered down with anxiety. Since his home was constructed with RPF supplies, every day was consumed with regret, pain, and fear. The second builder went to different supplier. She secured her…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, Are you one of the many people who struggles during the holidays? I know someone who can’t stand to see the Christmas lights out at night. It magnifies her grief to see lights when she feels like she is in the dark. If you or someone you know really struggles to find hope and peace during the holiday season, I encourage you to come to worship this Sunday. We are going to explore the book of…

MESSAGE OF ENCOURAGEMENT Dear Friends, Last night and early this morning, many of you braved the cold and the crowds hoping to find some deals. And you weren’t alone. According to estimates by the National Retail Federation, people who shop on Black Friday spend an average of just over $1,000 with total sales of over $720 billion across the country. But did you find what you were hoping for? Were you one of the first five people in line to…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear friends, Have you ever played the kids game “follow the leader?” In this game, one person is the leader and the rest line up by behind him/her and do whatever the leader does or they get disqualified from the game. For Christians, Jesus is not only a Savior but also our Lord, our Leader. Jesus didn’t just teach; he led by example:  Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children and walk in the way of love, just…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, Victory started in 2006 with a desire to connect to a changing world. Well, the world certainly changed. Only one year after Victory started, Steve Jobs launched the first iPhone, Facebook left college campuses, and Twitter became its own company. Victory has seen those changes and adapted. But there is another change that has swept the nation: The rise of the “nones”. Nones are those people who claim no religious affiliation whatsoever. And in the past ten…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, Life is full of ups and downs, of good and bad. You make the team and you feel good. You get cut and you feel bad. The Packers win and you feel good. The Packers lose and you feel bad. You get the job promotion and you feel good. You don’t get the job promotion and you feel bad. The dinner you make tastes good and you feel good. The dinner doesn’t turn out so well…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, Recently, Pastor Bill and I were talking and he made this observation: “We are a friendly church, but we are not necessarily a church of friends.” In other words, we are very good at making a first impression and welcoming a guest into church, but we struggle to build deeper relationships. There are lots of reasons for this. Most of us have crammed schedules. Others already have a solid network of friends and family. The blessings…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, Louis Zamperini, American hero, knows something about forgiveness. He was an Olympic athlete who flew fighter planes in WWII. His plane was shot down, and he survived 47 days in the open sea. A Japanese ship picked him up and took him to a prisoner camp, where he faced hard labor and torture for two years. Zamperini endured all that physical pain, and yet he said, “The hardest thing in life is to forgive.” According to…

Victory News – October 11, 2019

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, It’s easy to judge others, even if we don’t intend to do so. One Sunday morning, a man in ragged clothes, looking rugged and walking slowly, made his way down the side of the highway near a church. Car after car passed by the man and pulled into the church parking lot. Some people in their cars talked about him as they passed by, and some pretended not to notice him. When the church service started…
