Victory News – May 31, 2019


Dear Friends,

This Sunday we are going to have “The Talk”. That’s right, the “birds and the bees”.  We need to have this talk because everyone else is already talking about it. There is so much bad information out there. In addition, this subject is a source of so much pain and suffering.

That’s why we need to go back to God’s Word, where God tells us the original design for sex and sexuality. Then, fueled by the Holy Spirit, we might begin to live lives of love, not lust.

This would be a great opportunity to invite someone who has been abused or hurt or is struggling in the area of sex and relationships. I pray that this message might help us all find healing and hope.

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 wrapped up our Changed series with a message about what it means to be change agents for Christ. Want to make a difference? Want to be a part of something bigger than yourself? Welcome to the body of Christ! As we share Christ with others, our lives are constantly being changed as well. Click here to view or read last Sunday’s message.

Coming Up This Sunday – This week, Pastor Ben will kick off our Fueled series with a message about love. The love that Jesus has for us, that he showed us on the cross, is never-failing. This unconditional love is what we strive to show those around us. Join us on Sunday at 9:00 or 10:30am at church or online.  


Special Edition Video Podcast – This week, we released “After the Resurrection”, a special edition of the Victory Podcast. We shared some topics and ideas that didn’t make it into the messages during the Changed series, and we previewed the upcoming Fueled series. Click here to watch on our YouTube channel. You can also subscribe to The Victory Podcast on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, or Spotify to listen to this and all of the messages from our worship services.

Tuition Assistance Program – The Tuition Assistance Program provides assistance to those youth of our congregation pursuing a Lutheran-based education. In addition, the program provides an opportunity for our congregation to show their encouragement and support for a Lutheran-based education. If you are interested in donating to the Tuition Assistance Program, there are many methods for giving. You can give online, mail in your donation, or leave it in the offering plate on Sundays with “Tuition Assistance” in the memo.
