Victory News September 15, 2017

Dear Friends,

This weekend is going to be a great weekend at Victory of the Lamb! We are kicking off the Fall schedule with a new series called Soul Searching. In this series we are going to ask and answer some universal questions like: Where have I come from? Why am I here? Where am I going? What is the point and purpose of life? Does my life mean anything? Is there a God out there? What happens when I die? I guarantee you that a lot of light bulbs will get turned on in our heats and minds during this series! Join Pastor Ben and myself this Sunday morning at 8:30 or 10:15 for worship!  This is a great opportunity for you to invite your family members and friends who have some doubts or questions or just need to get built up in the faith.

A lot of us growing up played the game “follow the leader.” We did what the leader did. Run! Jump! Climb! Today we follow people on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook. we follow our favorite TV show, football team, blogger. Jesus said, “follow me.” I can guarantee you the no one loves and cares for you more than Jesus. The cross and the empty tomb prove his love and victory for you. If you missed last Sunday or would like to see it again, you can watch it here for an encouragement to Learn, Love and Live with and for God. 

Small Groups – There are a number of small groups back in session after the summer break. Here is a listing of the small groups that are in process. Two more will be added soon! There will also be a small group for small group leaders on Monday, September 25 at 6:30 at the Ministry Center!

Great News About More Than Bricks – There is absolutely nothing like God’s generosity.  His generosity is so amazing overwhelming that it empowers us to be generous. For the latest update on our More Than Bricks Campaign and to see God’s generosity at work through his people check out the latest More Than Bricks Campaign report!

Save the Date for Praise and Proclaim God uses ordinary people like us to bring the hope of Jesus to others when we share our faith. Wouldn’t you love to be able to do that confidently and comfortably with anybody? That’s why on Friday evening, October 13th we’ll be hosting a special weekend training event at our ministry center with that purpose. It’s called Praise and Proclaim. The next day, Saturday morning and afternoon, October 14th you’ll have an opportunity to put that training into practice. Meals will be provided. Childcare will be provided. We are praying even now that a great many of you who are our members will participate! Stay tuned for more info in the weeks ahead. Sign-up will begin on September 17th.

Christian Aid and Relief – There are lots of ways to donate. Here’s one you can trust. Christian Aid and Relief is our national church body’s arm that helps us show Christ’s live to those impacted by natural disasters like hurricanes, floods, and wildfires. Here’s a video made of phase help that Christian Aid and Relief provided to bring people together in the Houston area after Hurricane Harvey.

Sharing Christ’s Victory,
