Victory News – September 3, 2021

PASTOR’S MESSAGE

Hi Friends,

This weekend we are finishing up our series on the life of David. I hope you have enjoyed this series as much as I have. We are going to close this series by looking at David’s “last words”. These aren’t necessarily the last words he ever spoke, but these are the words by which he wanted to be remembered. Surprisingly, even after ruining his life, his relationships, and his kingdom, David is not filled with regret, but hope and thankfulness.

That’s how I want to finish my life. I want to be able to look back on my life without regret, filled with hope and thankfulness. How about you? This Sunday, we will discuss how David came to this conclusion and so can you. (Sneak peek: It helps when we see Jesus as the hero of history and not ourselves.)

Hope to see you for worship this Sunday at 9:00 or 10:30am, in person or online.  Feel free to invite a family member or friend to join you. You can worship at Victory, on our live stream site, or on our YouTube channel.  

Reaching today’s people with Christ’s victory,

Pastor Ben

CURRENT SERIES – David: The (im)Perfect King

ICYMI – Last weekend, Pastor Bill shared a message about pride and our faith. Pride is the root cause of our sins. When we let pride get the best of us, we take credit for what God is doing in our lives. You can click here to read and watch this message.

Coming Up This Weekend – Pastor Ben will wrap up this series with a message about our legacy. David teaches us the value and importance of passing on blessings from God so the children who come after you can succeed better than you. Join us for worship on Sunday at 9:00 or 10:30am at Victory on our live stream site or our YouTube channel.

VICTORY OPPORTUNITIES
