Victory News – March 20, 2020

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, We are all in a storm. The storm looks different for different people. Government officials and business owners are having to make difficult decisions. Some have had their hours cut and others have lost their jobs, at least temporarily. Others are working many hours away from family and friends but their hearts yearn to be at home. The medical professionals are right in the middle of the storm. Some of us are on a search to…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, Things changed, literally overnight, when I moved from Texas to Wisconsin to go to college. Culture shock set in. Here are a few of the differences: I went to a high school with almost 5,000 students and then I went to college with not quite 250 students. Friday nights were about football in Texas, along with all-you-can-eat enchiladas, tacos, burritos, quesadillas, and sopapillas. In Wisconsin, Friday nights were about all you can eat fish fry. In…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, Did you ever fight with your brother or sister? Did you ever feel like you were getting the short end of the stick? Sibling rivalry and messy families go hand in hand. Sibling rivalry often starts not long after the birth of the second child. Siblings can be tough on one another. This rivalry is made up of fighting, competition, and jealousy as the children strive for significance and acceptance from their parents and their peer…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, Last night I asked Jacky, “What’s for supper?” She responded, “Remember, I told you we were going to have left-overs.” My heart sank. I mean, the meals throughout the week were good, but I just wasn’t in the mood for eating food that was staining the bottom and the sides of the Glad containers with an orange tint. Moments later, Jacky went to the refrigerator to grab all the containers for the random mix and match…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, Last Saturday, when we got in our car to go out, I knew a blinker light burned out by the rapid speed of the blinker light signal on the console. Now I don’t work for NAPA or Autozone, but I have replaced a few blinker lights along the way and . . . there is Youtube, after all. So I Youtubed it. The video showed that, to replace the blinker light, I need to take the…

Victory News – January 10, 2020

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, Do you ever struggle with comparison? You visit someone’s house and it is beautiful and everything is in order. And then you walk into your house their dishes on the table, the counter top, and a few other places like the kids room, the bathroom and … you feel like a loser. The devil loves it when we compare ourselves to others because there are two options: we think less of ourselves than we should or…

Victory News – December 13, 2019

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, In his book Unshakable Hope, Max Lucado writes: “Two people set out to build their homes. The first went to RPF Home Supply (Regrets, Pain, and Fear). He ordered lumber that was rotted by guilt, nails that were rusting from pain, and the cement that was watered down with anxiety. Since his home was constructed with RPF supplies, every day was consumed with regret, pain, and fear. The second builder went to different supplier. She secured her…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear friends, Have you ever played the kids game “follow the leader?” In this game, one person is the leader and the rest line up by behind him/her and do whatever the leader does or they get disqualified from the game. For Christians, Jesus is not only a Savior but also our Lord, our Leader. Jesus didn’t just teach; he led by example:  Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children and walk in the way of love, just…

Victory News – November 8, 2019

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, Life is full of ups and downs, of good and bad. You make the team and you feel good. You get cut and you feel bad. The Packers win and you feel good. The Packers lose and you feel bad. You get the job promotion and you feel good. You don’t get the job promotion and you feel bad. The dinner you make tastes good and you feel good. The dinner doesn’t turn out so well…

Victory News – October 25, 2019

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, Here are some mission statements you might recognize: “To inspire and nurture the human spirit – one person, one cup and one neighborhood at a time.” (Starbucks)  “To organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful.” (Google) “To seek and save the lost.” (Jesus) What is your mission in life?  What if your mission is way too small? This weekend, we are going to look at the big mission that Jesus has for…

Victory News – October 11, 2019

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, It’s easy to judge others, even if we don’t intend to do so. One Sunday morning, a man in ragged clothes, looking rugged and walking slowly, made his way down the side of the highway near a church. Car after car passed by the man and pulled into the church parking lot. Some people in their cars talked about him as they passed by, and some pretended not to notice him. When the church service started…

Victory News – September 27, 2019

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, From your perspective, what is the most scandalous thing in the news from this past week? What is the most jaw-dropping play from Thursday night’s Packers/Eagles game? What is the most outrageous teaching of Jesus? This weekend in our Start With Jesus series, I am going to share with you what many people think is the most scandalous, jaw-dropping, outrageous teaching of Jesus. I will give you a hint: sooner or later, you are going to…
