Victory Lutheran Church is hosting an American Red Cross blood drive on Monday, November 3rd from 1-7 p.m. Please help us spread the word! Even better, show up and donate a pint! It’s the easiest way to literally save a life! We also need a few people to check donors in and also serve refreshments. High school kids can get community service hours for volunteering. Sign up at church to volunteer or donate. Please contact the admin with questions.
I grieve when I watch the news each night. There is so much hatred and hurting all around us. It can be discouraging, especially for us as Christians, because we are here to make a positive difference for the cause of Christ. God’s Word encourages and empowers you to be strong, and never give up. God has called you to faith by His Holy Spirit. He has assured you of your complete forgiveness because of Jesus’ death and resurrection. You have the certainty that you will spend eternity in the presence of your living Savior in heaven, and you have been given a spirit of POWER by God. You have a spirit, not of timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline! Do not be discouraged, do not give up. Be bold and confident as you intentionally talk to people about the forgiveness you enjoy in Christ. Be bold as you confidently and intentionally show God’s love to others in the things you say to them and do for them. As long as we live on earth, we will be in a struggle with evil, but thanks be to God, He has given us the eternal victory in Christ. Don’t give up, don’t give in. Be a Christian in what you say and do!

God has blessed each one of us with talents, and abilities. We are capable of doing remarkable things. God’s Words teaches us that while our accomplishments may be great, they are not the source of “greatness”. We find comfort in the greatness of knowing Christ!
