Victory News – December 14, 2018


Dear Friends,

Numbers. They’re all over the place.

To bake my pizza, I need to set my oven to the number 425. The favorite channel in the Limmer home, at least for 2 of us, is number 30 – ESPN! Aaron Rodgers will often call out Green 19, Green 19 before the ball is snapped.

Christmas is 11 days away. Worship on Sunday is at 9:00am and 10:30am. Christmas Eve services are at 2:00 and 4:00 pm

Here is one of my favorite numbers: 521.  As in 2 Corinthians 5:21 –  God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

That’s God’s grace.  And that equals an eternity of years in the joy and glory of heaven.

I look forward to seeing you this Sunday at 9:00 or 10:30am in person or online.

Sharing Christ’s Victory,

Pastor Bill
