Victory News - Legacy

Image
Every single one of us is leaving behind a legacy. What’s yours going to be? That’s the big idea behind what we’re going to talk about over the next four weeks this November. You see, whether we’re intentional about it or not, we’re all passing on something to the next generation. And this isn’t about passing down money or stuff. More significantly, we pass on our hopes, our values, our beliefs—what is important to us and what is not. So join us as we start this new series and talk about some of those things that are most important that God wants us to pass on.

Even when I am old and gray, do not forsake me, my God, till I declare your power to the next generation, your mighty acts to all who are to come. Psalm 71:18


Missions Conversation – As part of our upcoming capital campaign for our ministry center, we plan to include a significant Missions component. So next Sunday, November 9th, all of you are invited to join us before church for a 45 minute conversation regarding …

Victory News - Contentment

Contentment.

Easier said than done, right? Maybe that’s why the Apostle Paul calls it a secret. Something he had to learn. And if we’re honest, something most of us have to learn too. Paul says, “I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation” (Philippians 4:12).

So join us this Sunday as we reach the end of our Stuck? series where we’ve been journeying through the book of Philippians in the Bible. As we come to the conclusion of this series we’re going to discover the secret that Paul learned and that God wants all of us to learn too. It’s one of the most joyful parts of getting unstuck and moving forward spiritually. Come discover it for yourself with us this Sunday at 9:09!

Thanksgiving Fellowship Meal - Sunday, November 23rd. You’re all invited. Join us for fun, music, and good food as we celebrate God’s blessings over the past year and look forward to his blessings in the next. Entertainment begins around 4 pm, and dinner will be served at 5. Sugg…

Keep Calm and Rejoice On!

Tomorrow is another opportunity to worship God in our free country. Let's make the most of it! We have so much to be thankful for and what better way to use our time than by thanking, praising, and praying to God.

It's been a busy week but I'm happy because I just finished my sermon. Now it's time for me to learn it! But I'm excited to share it with you because it's a message we all need to hear:

Keep Calm...and Rejoice On!

My sermon is based on Philippians 4:4-9 tomorrow. If you get a chance, take a peek and read those verses tonight before bed.

Friends, if you've been struggling with anxiety or worry, or if you've been finding yourself feeling grumpy or stressed, antisocial or upset... join me tomorrow and let God's Spirit find room to work in your heart and give you JOY instead.

In Christ,

Pastor Ben

PS - We're just starting a Bible study on the book of Acts in theater #6 at 8:09 am. You're all welcome to join us!

Victory News - Pressing On!

Image
There’s one part of getting unstuck – spiritually speaking – that’s as important as any.

Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead (Philippians 3:13b).

Here’s the irony: you actually move forward in faith when you stop striving to win God’s approval or work your way into heaven by your own effort. In fact you can only press on and go forward when you realize the pressure’s off!

So be sure and catch my message this Sunday. We’re getting at the very heart of how God wants to get us unstuck through knowing Jesus.

If you know anyone who’s ever felt any pressure to perform, or anyone who’s struggling with how to deal with lots of heavy stress in life right now, invite them to join you this Sunday!

Groups are in full swing this Fall. Still time to jump in! Just check out the menu of opportunities on our website to get connected. About 75 different people have participated in groups so far this Fall. That’s awesome!

Bible Study takes place every Sunday in theater #6…
