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 supplies from Hope Incorporated. Rather than choosing regret, pain, and fear, she found ample promises of grace, protection, and security. Her house was built on hope.”
What are you building your “home” on?
This weekend we are going to continue our series called Hope. Hope in Jesus gives us a solid foundation, because hope changes everything!
I hope to see you in person or online this weekend at 9:00 or 10:30am. Feel free to invite someone and share the Hope of Jesus, who changes everything!
Reaching today’s people with Christ’s victory,
CURRENT SERIES – HOPE
ICYMI – Last Sunday, Pastor Ben continued the Hope series with a message about how hope changes us. There are many circumstances that attempt to rob us of our hope: what we see, how we feel, the voices of other people. However, God has called us to remain resilient in hope. Click here to read or watch last Sunday’s message.
Coming Up This Sunday – This weekend, Pastor Bill continues the series. Hope has the power to change everything. Even though in many instances the circumstances do not change, how we view them does when we see them through the hope given to us through Jesus. Join us on Sunday at 9:00 or 10:30am at church or online. You can also check out the Spotify playlist for the series here.
Victory Kids Christmas Program – This Sunday, children in our Victory Kids program will share the message of Christmas with us through song and readings at the 10:30am service. If your child is not participating in the program, we will still offer Victory Kids during the 9:00am service. There is a rehearsal on Saturday, December 14 at 10:00am for those children participating in the program.
Christmas at Victory – Hope is coming… and his name is Jesus. You are invited to Christmas at Victory, happening on Christmas Eve at 1:00, 3:00, and 5:00pm. We encourage you to invite your friends and family by sharing the event on Facebook, reposting on Instagram, and retweeting on Twitter.

We look forward to celebrating the birth of Jesus with you!
