Victory News – July 23, 2021

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, Without good friends we just aren’t going to be able to make it in this life. At least that’s what Solomon, the wisest man who ever lived, once said: One who has unreliable friends soon comes to ruin,     but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother. (Proverbs 18:24)   When you need financial support, a friend will be there to help you get by. When you are depressed or anxious, a…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, God has given your life meaning and purpose through your callings. Some of you are called to be students. Others are called to be employees or employers. Some of you are called to be parents. Many of you are called to be husbands and wives. The calling of marriage will be the focus of our sermon this weekend. This is a unique calling, but not the most important one. Our most important calling is to be…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, This past Monday, the Baylor’s men basketball team won the NCAA Tournament Championship, denying an undefeated season and national championship for Gonzaga. Back in 1993, Chris Webber rebounded a missed free throw in Michigan’s national championship game versus North Carolina. With just under 20 seconds left and down by two, Webber hastily dribbled the ball down court. Failing to realize his team had no timeouts left, he called a timeout. Michigan was assessed a technical foul…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, One of the greatest blessings of the pandemic is that we have been able to spend more time together as a family. More board games. More family dinners. More living room wrestling matches. But one of the greatest challenges of the pandemic is that we have had to spend more time together. More opportunities to hurt each other’s feelings. More opportunities to be misunderstood. More time breaking up fights between siblings. That’s why one of the…

Victory News – January 8, 2021

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, So many things have happened in the last year. Not all those things were bad. One of the things that the pandemic has afforded us is the opportunity to slow down and get a handle on our frantic pace of life. That is one reason why our teaching series to start off 2021 is called Renewed. This is a foundational series that is designed to help us get a handle on our lives. Last Sunday, Pastor…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, This past week, the crisis in Kenosha was added to the long list of traumatic, dark events in 2020. I spent the first half of my life in the Kenosha area, so this incident hit close to home. Throughout the week, I found myself sucked into all the news surrounding the events, as well as following the many different views on social media. I found the more I went down the rabbit hole of opposing opinions,…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, Maybe you’ve had a similar experience to Chris’ mom. Three-year-old Chris was one of three boys in a family who lived in North Carolina. Allison (also three years old), her two sisters, and her parents were his neighbors. On hot Friday afternoons, the two moms and six kids would pile into this big ugly green station wagon and drive an hour to the beach. They would spend all day at the beach and then jump back…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, Can I be honest? Weekend worship is bittersweet for me. I remember a few months ago when we entered church to the smell of fresh egg-bake and hot coffee. I remember how the worship space was filled with people singing to their God. And our biggest problem was our overcrowded parking lot. I remember how Sunday morning seemed to be my one-stop-shop that met my physical, emotional, social, and spiritual needs. And it all happened in…

Victory News – March 6, 2020

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, Things changed, literally overnight, when I moved from Texas to Wisconsin to go to college. Culture shock set in. Here are a few of the differences: I went to a high school with almost 5,000 students and then I went to college with not quite 250 students. Friday nights were about football in Texas, along with all-you-can-eat enchiladas, tacos, burritos, quesadillas, and sopapillas. In Wisconsin, Friday nights were about all you can eat fish fry. In…

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, Sometimes when a golfer shanks their first tee shot, they are allowed a mulligan. A mulligan is a do over, a second chance. Sometimes when students bomb a test, the teacher will allow them to retake it. The teacher will give the student a second chance. Can you think of a time when you needed a second chance? A lot of times when we need a second chance it begins with us admitting our mistake -“I’m…

Vending Machines, Microchips and Prayer

Dear friends, One of our Core Values at Victory is Youth Engagement. God has blessed many of our families with children and God has blessed all of us with our Victory Kids ministry. It is so cool to see the smiling faces leave the Victory Kids wing on Sunday morning. Time and again, parents tell me how their child(ren) can’t wait to get to Victory Kids! So a “shout out” to God and to all who use their God-given gifts…
