Victory News – September 23, 2022

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, John Chrysostom was a leader in the early Christian church. He was known for his preaching, public speaking, and writing. His straightforward speaking was not always well received. Reportedly he angered the Emperor Arcadius. Arcadius wanted to punish Chrysostom, so he brought in his counselors. One said, “Confiscate his property.” But one responded, “that will only hurt the poor to whom he gives all that he has.” Another said, “throw him in prison.” Someone responded, “no,…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, The people in the Old Testament used several different words for worship with various meanings. Included in these meanings are hands of praise, boast, celebrate, dance, make music, confession, thanksgiving for things not yet received, bow down, new song, and loud shout. This week Pastor Frosty is going to bring us a fantastic message based on a psalm of praise, Psalm 100. And he is going to lead us to see: “what is the best kind…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, One child gets in trouble and blames his sibling. Maybe it goes something like, “He hit me first.” Blaming someone else or excusing ourselves is a common character trait of sinful people. It started with Adam and Eve. Adam blamed Eve and God in one sentence. “It was the woman you gave me,” he said to God. And it is still the same today. Often our reaction to sin is to blame someone else or excuse…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, When Andrew was six months old, he was playing with a ball. But with a flail of the arm, the ball rolled underneath the couch. He immediately started to cry. He thought the ball was lost. He was lamenting. Lamenting isn’t just for little children. Losing things, dreams, and people are a part of real life. And it hurts. These loses cause us to lament. This weekend, we are continuing our series Summer Playlist looking at…

Victory News – July 29, 2022

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, For the longest time songs have been a part of our summer memories. There is Summerfest, State Fair, and other indoor or outdoor concerts. Music has a way of touching our souls. That is why many people are attracted to the book of Psalms. The Psalms touch our hearts with everything from sad songs (laments) to hopeful and glad songs, to songs that tell a story. In our new series, Summer Playlist, our hearts will be…

Victory News – July 15, 2022

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, It was moving day! We were moving to the community where I was assigned to serve. Jacky and I were talking at the top of the concrete steps that led to the basement. Andrew, who was 13 months old at the time, walked right in between us and fell all the way down the concrete steps to the basement floor. I ran downstairs to get him while Jacky called 911. Holding him so tightly, I walked…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, This week Jacky and I went to the Muskego Water Bugs water ski show. Right before the main part of the show started, the emcee asked for all the audience members who are active or inactive members of the military, police officers, and EMS personnel to stand. These are the people who keep us safe and free and they remind us that freedom comes at the cost of sacrifice. Then, we all stood as a boat…

Victory News – June 17, 2022

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, Many of us who are parents often hear our children lament, “I’m hungry.” We prepare a meal or snack only to hear him say, “I don’t want that.” And so, he remains hungry. It is perplexing at best. Ok, let’s be honest. I have looked in the refrigerator for something to eat because I was hungry and wanted to be satisfied. But after glancing over the conglomeration of food, rearranging items on the shelves, pulling out…

Victory News – June 3, 2022

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, Sometimes we think things are bad things when they are actually good. For example: Michael Jordan was cut from his high school basketball team. Was that bad or good? Well, Michael went to work on his basketball skills. He used the disappointment of not making the team to work hard to become better. The result of his hard work and natural God-given ability: many people think that Michael Jordan is the best basketball player ever. Maybe…
