Victory News – April 17, 2020

PASTOR’S MESSAGE

Hi Friends,

We live in what has been called the Information Age. With one click on my computer, I can read blogs, watch the news, read books, get reports on stocks, find sports highlights, and a whole lot more.

I have been told there is more information in the Sunday edition of the New York Times than people just generations ago received in a lifetime. I don’t know if that is true or not . . . and that is key. We live in an information age, not an age of truth. Just because you hear it doesn’t mean it is true. Just because you found it on Google or Wikipedia doesn’t automatically make it true.

So, we need to be careful on how we receive the information. Because it is not information that will set us free. It is the truth that will set us free.

This weekend, we are beginning a new series called Who Told You That?. In this series we explore some of the information that has been passed off as what Christianity teaches… only Christianity doesn’t actually teach it. And those false ideas about Christianity have often led people to shipwreck their faith or not take Christianity seriously.

I invite you, your family, and your friends to have a watch party online for worship this Saturday at 5:00pm or Sunday at 9:00 or 10:30am.

Sharing Christ’s victory,

Pastor Bill

Current Series – Who Told You THat?

ICYMI – Last weekend, Pastors Bill and Ben led us from the Last Supper to the Cross to the Empty Tomb. Jesus rescued you at the cross. Because Jesus is alive, Hope Lives! Click here to read or watch the messages from Holy Week.

Coming Up This Weekend – Pastor Bill kicks off our new series with a message about science and God. You may have heard that science and Christianity are at odds, or that science disproves the existence of God. But just because we learn more about Creation doesn’t mean that it removes our need for the Creator. Join us on Saturday at 5:00pm or Sunday at 9:00 or 10:30am. You can join in for all of these services online.
