Victory News - Thanksgiving Eve Worship

Dear Friends,

Remember. Lest we forget…God, his goodness, his blessings.

Remember the LORD your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth” (Deuteronomy 8:18).

Join us tomorrow on Thanksgiving Eve at 6:30 pm at our ministry center as we thank and praise God in worship for all the ways he has blessed us and our church family. This is our first ever Thanksgiving service as a church! After the service we are having a pie social in the lobby. All are welcome to stay and enjoy some food and fellowship. There is no service on Thanksgiving Day.

Join me this Sunday as we conclude our study of 1 Corinthians with God’s promise that because Jesus lives…our mission work in this world is NOT IN VAIN. He is cheering us on!

Victory News - 3 Days That Changed the World

On Tuesday, the citizens of our country are going to elect our next President. That individual will be the 44th different person to hold the office. It’s an important position and a high calling to be sure. Yet every president’s term of office has been measured by a calendar marked off by the life of a man who once worked as Jewish carpenter nearly 2,000 years ago—Jesus of Nazareth.

In fact every time any human being anywhere on the planet opens a calendar, checks their phone, or boots up a computer, they are reminded that Jesus Christ has in fact become the hinge of human history.
Many world leaders have come and gone. The legacy of Jesus Christ lives on.

Nero, for example, died “in the year of our Lord”—A.D. 68. Napoleon died “in the year of our Lord” 1821. Joseph Stalin died “in the year of our Lord” 1953.

As author John Ortberg says, “Maybe Jesus was not Lord of lords and King of kings, but how strange that now every ruler who ever reigned must be dated in reference to the life o…
