Victory News – October 2, 2020

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…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, Do you feel like your world is spinning out of control? Are you depressed, anxious, or losing hope?

Parenting with the Right Tools

Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it. (Proverbs 22:6) Recently, our neighbor’s century-old barn burned to the ground. My husband and I were startled out of bed when our neighbor rang the doorbell.  We both ran outside to investigate the situation and found the barn engulfed in flames. The fire department had yet to arrive and, in a moment of adrenaline and panic, I grabbed the garden…
