Anything but Empty – We are Blessed!

Dear Friends, Spring in Wisconsin is a season of changing conditions. The weather starts to warm up and the flowers start to bloom and then boom . . . the temperature drops. What great news that God never changes.  He is always with us and he is keeping for us “an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade.” So if you find yourself in the tumult of change keep your eyes and heart on the constant of God.

Victory News – First Week of June!

“But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD” (Joshua 24:15). This past Sunday we explored the context of this important verse from the book of Joshua in the Bible. We then talked about the legacy that we leave when we practice spiritual discernment, draw some important lines in our lives related to our priorities, and daily make the choice to serve the LORD our God who loves us so much that he gave his one and…

Victory News – One Label to Wear

To remember your baptism is to reclaim your true identity as a child of God. Why? Because through the water and word of holy baptism you have exchanged the filthy old rags of your sins along with all the worn out, mis-fitting , and entirely inappropriate labels that the world has slapped on you for the brand new clothes of the perfect righteousness of Jesus Christ your Savior! “So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith,…

Victory News

Ice cream and conversation following Daniel Dexter’s (far right) theatrical storytelling of Genesis Last Sunday was a great day. First of all we heard a spot-on message from Vicar Caleb about the GREAT promises that God has made to us in Romans 8:26-39. In case you missed it, be sure and catch it online. Later in the afternoon, our Leadership Team also held a call meeting for a second pastor. After prayerful consideration the Leadership Team has extended a call…

Victory News – Opportunities to Grow

Gospel joy in the morning This week was filled with many blessings as a number of new ministry opportunities successfully kicked off including my Breakfast and Bible Study early Monday morning and our Victory Moms group on Thursday morning. I was overjoyed to have 12 (smiling even!) people join me at 5:45 am at the break of day as we began studying Philippians—talking about how to sustain joy in life. It was a great way to start a long, busy…
