Christmas Eve Service

Twas the Night Before Christmas… We are having a special Victory of the Lamb Christmas Eve service this week on Friday, December 24th, at 6 pm. However since Christmas Eve is one of Showtime Cinema’s busiest days of the year, we aren’t able to meet at Showtime. Instead we are meeting in nearby Muskego in the brand new school gym of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church and School. If you don’t have other plans, we’d love to see you on Christmas…

Brothers and Sisters in Christ

What makes Christmas special? Of course the #1 thing is Christ himself, without whom this year’s Christmas celebration would have no lasting effects beyond the scraps of wrapping paper scattered around the tree and the leftover cookie crumbs on the kitchen floor. But Christ is the gift that keeps on giving. His flawless life and perfect sacrifice cover over all our sins and he will one day give us the gift of eternal life in heaven! Those are priceless gifts…

Blizzard Schmizzard

Dear Friends, Who gets up to go to church in a blizzard? A lot more people than I thought possible! Now I should’ve known. There was one day back at the Polonia Soccer Club when we didn’t have any heat in the building and it was 16 degrees in there…and still people stayed for worship. We had blankets that we brought from our house. It was crazy…and awesome! But I’ll admit…I might have been wondering if we had gone a…

Blizzard Warning

A couple people have called to ask if we’re having worship tomorrow because of the blizzard warning overnight. The answer is YES! We are having worship…for whoever shows up. I’ll be the guy out front with a shovel in my hand. Good night and God bless. Pastor Ben

Join Us for a Special Sunday!

Dear Friends, No one should walk through life alone. That’s why this Sunday is a going to be a special day at Victory of the Lamb. At our regular 9:30 service at Showtime Cinema we’re going to be installing our new part-time pastor, Andy Glende, and we want to invite you to be there for it. We’ve called Pastor Andy and given him the responsibility to help make sure that in our church family “no one walks alone.” You see,…

You are Invited

Dear Friends, The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. Well that certainly sounds like something that would describe a windy day like today here in Wisconsin, doesn’t it? It’s like the wind out there has a mind of its own. But these are actually words of Jesus that he once spoke to describe the work of God. Just like I can’t control the wind…

Worship and Outreach Symposium Papers

As promised Sunday…here’s a link to the 3 papers which were presented and discussed at this year’s Symposium at Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary which I attended last week. The men who wrote these papers are all especially gifted in that they are not only true scholars, but also pastors who love their people as much as they love the truth of the Gospel. There’s some “deep end of the pool” stuff in these papers…but don’t let that scare you off. They…

SuccessFULL Fall Kickoff

How many of you get up in the morning and think, “Today I want to be a failure”? Probably none of you…because we’re all wired to want to succeed. Success is important to people. But the question is, What really makes a person successful? Or, How do you measure success? It seems at first like an easy question. For example, if you’re the Green Bay Packers, it’s simple. It starts Sunday. Win. That’s the measuring stick. Some people are saying…

Summer Wrap-Up

The calm after the soccer camp…that’s how it feels right now for a little bit at least! So I just wanted to take a few moments to reflect on what a great week it was last week. God gave us a couple really great days of sunny (and muggy!) August weather…so that 65 kids, 12 coaches, and a host of helpers could enjoy a week of playing soccer, meeting new friends, and learning about Jesus. I mean, how can you…

Summer Events

Happy Summer! I know I don’t have to tell that to anyone who participated in the 4th of July parade on Sunday! It was 90 degrees and sunny as our church float rolled down Loomis Rd with our band playing on it for over an hour. And then there were the 35 of you who walked alongside the float handing out candy and invitations to our community. A huge thank you to all of you! Some of the kids especially…

Sunday Sermon Q and A

Twice a month, I regularly invite people at worship to text me whatever questions they have on my sermon. We then have a Q and A time during the service when I do my best to answer some of those questions. I want people to know that it’s ok to have questions and it’s good to talk about them. We’re a church that wants to honestly deal with them because, honestly, we’ve all got questions. Well this week during the…

New Bible 101 starting

Got questions? “Don’t all religious paths lead to the same place?” “Isn’t the Bible just a bunch of myths people made up?” “God loves me as long as I’m trying to be a good person, right?” “It doesn’t matter what you believe as long as you’re sincere, right?” “Isn’t your church just full of hypocrites like the rest?” These are just a handful of questions people have asked in taking Bible 101. I believe everyone should have an opportunity to…
