Victory News – August 30, 2019


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 sorry.” And it ends with us doing the “right thing.”

Thankfully, God is patient with us and gives us second chance after second chance. God’s grace in Jesus not only forgives us our sins but also gives us the power to amend our sinful lives.

Jesus is our second chance. 1 Corinthians 15:22 says, For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive.

This Sunday as we continue our study of the book of Jonah, we are going to talk a whole lot more about second chances and making the best use of our second chances.

Join us for worship this Sunday at 9:00 or 10:30am in person or online.

Sharing Christ’s love and victory,

Pastor Bill


ICYMI – Last Sunday, Pastor Ben continued the Wanted series with a message about faith in times of trouble. Like Jonah, we recognize our deep need for a Savior when we’re deep in despair. Moments like this help us see clearly why we need to share Jesus with the world, because everyone needs a  Savior.  Click here to read or watch last Sunday’s message..

Coming Up This Sunday – This weekend, Pastor Bill continues this series with a message about second chances. God calls us to share Him with the world, even when it’s difficult, because he is a patient God who wants all people to come to faith. Join us on Sunday at 9:00 or 10:30am at church or online.


Victory Kids This Weekend – Due to the holiday weekend, we will not be offering Nursery in Victory Kids. Children ages two through 5th grade are still welcome to join us in Victory Kids for a movie and snacks during both the 9:00 & 10:30am services.

Find Your Fit at Victory – If you are still looking for where you fit at Victory, or if you’re looking for other ways to get involved, then make sure to join us in September! In early September, you’ll have a chance to get involved in some new and restarting small groups. At the end of the month, you’ll get the opportunity to learn about where you can use your unique talents and interests to serve at Victory. And, we encourage you to invite a friend to church for our upcoming series, Start with Jesus, which kicks off on September 15. We can’t wait to help you find your fit.
