PASTOR’S MESSAGE

Hi Friends,

As a teenager, I knew all about parenting. Parenting is easy, I convinced myself. I was clear on how my parents were blowing it. The catch was that I wasn’t a parent yet; in other words, I was clueless about what parenting was really like.

I took for granted so much of what my parents did for me. All the laundry, all the sleepless nights, all the trouble I got into harassing my sister, all the times I treated my parents like an ATM. I’m sure I broke their hearts time and time again, because I knew better.

And then it happened: I became a parent. There’s nothing like becoming a parent to give you perspective and appreciation for all your parents’ sacrifices through the years.

This weekend we are continuing our series Top Ten Ways to Live a Better Life. We will be looking at the 4th Commandment – honor your father and mother. The architect of the family is God. One of the reasons God established the family is for the well-being of society, and honoring our parents means the family functions as God intends.

You’re invited to worship this weekend on Sunday at 9:00 & 10:30am. You can worship at Victory, on our live stream site, or on our YouTube channel.  

Reaching today’s people with Christ’s victory,

Pastor Bill
