Victory News – September 11, 2020

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, Pastor Frosty Bivens proclaimed an amazing message for us last weekend at worship. If you didn’t get a chance to worship or if you want to review the message you can do that here. “What did I get out of worship?” That is a question that we ask ourselves. By asking this question, we try to determine if the worship was worth our time. In fact, the word worship comes from the old English word worthship.…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, Labor Day Weekend is here. Labor Day is a federal holiday in the United States celebrated to honor and recognize the American labor movement and the works and contributions of laborers to the development and achievements of the United States. Growing up, Labor Day confused me. I thought, if this is Labor Day, why does “everybody” have the day off? As I was thinking about this, I started to understand why so many people are confused…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, Maybe you’ve had a similar experience to Chris’ mom. Three-year-old Chris was one of three boys in a family who lived in North Carolina. Allison (also three years old), her two sisters, and her parents were his neighbors. On hot Friday afternoons, the two moms and six kids would pile into this big ugly green station wagon and drive an hour to the beach. They would spend all day at the beach and then jump back…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, When was the last time you lost your phone? Do you remember what that was like? You think you know where it is at, but it is not there. You go to the second spot knowing it is got to be there, but it is not. Panic sets in, especially if you are running late. Your heart rate accelerates to the hummingbird heart rate of 1,260 beats per minute. You ask for family members or friends…

Leadership Team Minutes – July 2020

JuLY 2020 Leadership Team Meeting Date/Time/Location: July 13, 2020, 6:30pm Present: Pastor Bill, Pastor Ben, Jacob Guenther, Jeff Guenther, Jim Vogel, Ronald Takacs, Jason Seiberlich Absent: JoJo Moore, Kevin Rasmussen Devotion Pastor Bill led a devotion on John 4:1-26.

Being tired or weary doesn’t mean…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, Change is inevitable. Things are always changing. Many of us have heard, “If you don’t like the weather in Wisconsin, wait five minutes. It will change.” Over the last four months so many things have changed. Schools met virtually, a lot of us woke up in the morning already at work. Church became an online-only experience. The financial situation of many people changed drastically as the unemployment rate soared. Last week we were told Milwaukee public…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, “Beware of Dog.” While you and I may not notice this sign a lot, I’m sure the Amazon, Fed Ex, UPS and US Mail carriers notice it a lot more. I remember canvassing in El Paso as a teenager and our pastor would tell us, “Don’t stop by the houses that have a ‘No Soliciting’ or ‘Beware of Dog’ signs.” In Philippians 3:2, the Apostle Paul says, “Watch out for those dogs.” Paul wasn’t talking about…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, Happy Independence Day Weekend! This Fourth of July is different than any I have experienced. But we are free: free to vote for whomever we choose, free to seek employment from any company, free to worship. Free. The national freedom you and I have isn’t because a number of people signed a declaration. The freedom that you and I have is because of the courage found on a battlefield. We have freedom because lives were lost.…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, There is a stunning parable in Matthew 18. In the parable, an earthly story with a heavenly meaning, a man owes the king 10,000 bags of gold. The man didn’t have any resources to pay off the debt. The king decrees that he and his family be sold off until the debt is paid in full. The man fell on his knees, begging the king for mercy and for more time to pay off the debt.…

If we have a small view of God then we have big problems. If we have a big view of God then we have small problems. God is a refuge.  We do not need to be afraid; God is always with…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, This week, I had a fascinating interview about equality and value with JoJo Moore.

You can watch the interview on our Facebook page and YouTube channel tonight at 7:00pm. This weekend, we are going to interrupt our sermon series to talk about what has been on the news for about the…
