Christmas Weekend Is Here!

Operation Jesus Cares – The Christmas Project Hey there, are you reading this? Anybody listening? I guess I just have to trust your Pastor Ben that somehow the internet (whatever that is!) will deliver this message to you. It’s a little hard to comprehend how incredible your forms of communication are today. Amazing! Because I’m just a shepherd—think sort of like a baby-sitter except that I watch over sheep. A sheep-sitter! But this Christmas Eve I’ve also got a powerful…

Victory News – Weekend Weather

Andrew says if you bundle up it’s not so bad! Dear Friends, I don’t think there’s any doubt we’ll be having a white Christmas this year. It looks like God is reminding us that we still live in Wisconsin! Another round of snow is headed our way on Friday and Saturday followed by a deep freeze on Sunday. I just wanted to let you all know that we’re aware of the weather and we’ve been talking about it as a…

Victory News – 2nd Week of December

Toy drive ongoing through Sunday Dear Friends, Are you ready for Christmas? Amidst all the busyness of this season, don’t forget to prepare your heart! Long ago that’s why God sent someone named John. “To prepare the way for the Lord” was his mission. Join me this Sunday as we hear from him again. His words are as relevant as ever as we continue our series “The Way It Was.” (ICYMI – Watch my sermon from last Sunday. “God has…

Victory News – December 2, 2016

Hi Victory Family, Is your tree up?  Shopping started? I hope you are having a great week preparing for Christ’s coming. Last week we began a sermon series entitled “The Way It Was.” We looked at this amazing Unmistakable Sign that God is with us.  Pastor Ben is going to show us the good news of Jesus through the prophet Zechariah so that we can see that God has not forgotten you (even when it feels like it)! It is…

Sanctuary Art and Furnishings

Latest Rendering by Paul Mattek of Design Fugitives (Updated December 15) Dear Church Family, Stuffed. To me, it’s a Thanksgiving word. This year has certainly been stuffed full of God’s blessings. It was wonderful to actually get to sit with my family during our first Thanksgiving Eve service and listen with them (as much as possible with a toddler sitting next to you!) to Pastor Bill’s sermon. A year ago we were worshiping at the cinema. Now we have our…

Jackson Poulos, a five-year old boy, has a rare childhood cancer. There is a raffle, a silent auction, a bake sale, and plenty of vendors.

Victory News – Benefit Sunday

Poulos Family Benefit, Sunday 3-6 pm Dear Friends, This afternoon at 4pm, the Franklin High School football team is playing in the D1 state championship game in Madison against an undefeated team from Kimberly. What an exciting opportunity for those football players to compete for the title of state champs! A video was posted online of the team buses pulling out and heading to the big game. I’m guessing though there wasn’t a video of you heading off to work…

Victory News – All Bad Things Must Come to an End

Our time is limited. Twenty-four hours in a day. One hundred and sixty-eight hours in a week. For a life time.  None of us knows how long or how short we will live here on earth. If we don’t keep our focus on our eternal God, it can be kind of scary. But through Jesus we can know that whether our earthsly life is short or long, we have an eternal life in the glories of heaven. This weekend we…
