Last week was our first week with all our chairs back in the worship space, no masks requirements, and the beginnings of the Victory Cafe with coffee and cookies. A worship band member said that it felt like there was a lot of energy in the room. I agree. It was such a blessing to see so many of you, talk with you, and encourage one another.
I praise God for all the ways that we can worship together, whether at Victory or online. I praise God for all those who make worship a priority in their lives. Those desires don’t come naturally. They are a work of the Holy Spirit. To him be the glory!
I look forward to worshiping with you again this weekend. Until then, how can I pray for you? In addition to prayer, there anything else I can do to encourage you and help you in your walk with Jesus? Feel free to reply to this email or give me a call 414-380-2090.
Reaching today’s people with Christ’s victory,
