Victory News – June 14, 2019


Dear Friends,

This Sunday, we are going to the movies. Not literally. We are not going back to worship in the Cinema. But I will be talking about the movies. You see, screenwriters are some of the best storytellers in the world. Also, they have an incredible ability to diagnose the culture. So what are the modern screenwriters teaching us about the culture?

They seem to be saying, “The world is going dark and the villains are winning.” Just consider the top movies in the theaters. All of them seem to have a dark theme with an unstoppable villain. The screenwriters are saying: There is no more peace in our world.

So this Sunday, we are going to tell a different story. We are going to see that we can have peace, even in today’s world. We are going to see how a life fueled by the Holy Spirit leads to peace.

See you this Sunday at 9:00 or 10:30am, in person or online.  

Sharing Christ’s love and victory,

Pastor Ben


ICYMI – Last Sunday, Pastor Bill continued our Fueled series with a message about joy. We don’t have to feel happy and pleased to experience joy. Joy comes from knowing our eternity is secure in Jesus. Click here to view or read last Sunday’s message.

Coming Up This Sunday – This weekend, Pastor Ben will share a message about peace. True peace comes from God, from immersing ourselves in his promises and knowing that his love for us never fails. Join us on Sunday at 9:00 or 10:30am at church or online.


Father’s Day at Victory – Coming up next Sunday, June 16 at 9:00 & 10:30am, we’ll celebrate dads with song, food, and fun. Victory Kids are singing a song for their dads, we’ll have a Dad Joke video with the pastors and Kevin from our Leadership Team, and there will be a donut wall in the lobby to enjoy along with our Cafe spread. And of course, we’ll share a message about the peace we get from growing closer to our Heavenly Father. Can’t wait to see you there!
