Watch Rev. Victor's sermon
Rev. Victor Floyd last Sunday: "Peter's name means 'rock.' Let his name remind you of how his walking-on-water escapade went. He sank like a rock. We all will. But remember this more: Remember the hands that were there to catch him. Remember the hands that pulled him up." Watch his sermon, or see our worship slides. (Plus, check out more of Victor's music and preaching at louandvictor.net.)
