Victory News – December 18, 2020

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, Why has the Christmas story captivated so many? It’s not just THAT God came to earth. It’s HOW he came. Just think if Jesus would have been born at West Allis Memorial. Who would want to put that kind of nativity scene in their front yard? Instead, the birth of Jesus is filled with challenges and surprises. Joseph finds out that his fiancé is pregnant, and he is about to call the whole thing off. But…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, Road signs don’t seem that important… until they are. When Jacky and I were on our intern year, we lived in Vassar, Michigan. After the Christmas Day service, we hopped in our car and began our trip back to Milwaukee to spend the holiday with her family. It was an uneventful trip, except that I missed the sign for I-94 West. I found I-94 but not I-94 West. We were going east instead of west. So…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, This past year, you and I have spent a lot of time waiting and hoping. You have waited in lines at grocery stores and you have waited for lifted restrictions. You are waiting for a vaccine, or perhaps change in relationship status or financial standing. Maybe you are waiting for a diagnosis. We have been waiting in the dark for most of the year. The Sunday, we are beginning our Christmas series, “Light in the Darkness.”…

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 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 – August 2, 2019

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, I used to believe that the goal of life was to die and have my soul go up to heaven. I no longer believe that. The Bible presents a much greater picture of heaven. Heaven is what will happen when Jesus returns. When he returns, Jesus is going to make all things new (Revelation 21:5). When Jesus returns, he is not just going to save my soul; he is going to set all creation free. He is…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, It is that time of year when change is in the air.  Monday it was 70 degrees, and it was snowing on Wednesday. That’s quite a change. As we go through life, we go through changing seasons. Some changes are more difficult than others; some are scary, some are welcomed, and some are for our good. The greatest change agent of all is our Savior Jesus Christ. He changes everything. By grace through faith in Jesus…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, The President said what? The pastor said what? Our military did what? The teacher did what? To me, scandals aren’t just things that happen; they are things we don’t expect to happen. Scandals deal with things we didn’t see coming. At this time in the Christian church year, we focus on the scandals surrounding the death of Jesus. This includes everything from the church leaders finding the innocent Jesus guilty to the atheist finding Jesus innocent…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, How’s the New Year started off for you? It has been less than two weeks since we started 2019.  Already, I know of a cancer diagnosis, a potential genetic disorder, two car wrecks, a home repair in the thousands, and many more difficult situations. Life can be overwhelming if we focus in on the what is going on or trying to figure out the why this is happening. And you know what we try to do,…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, Are you ready for 2019? Some things will be the same, and some things will be new. Like you, I don’t know exactly what will happen in 2019 but I do know who will be with us! And the God who will be with us is faithful. I am excited as we move forward together because God and his grace and mercy will be leading, guiding us. Along with the Apostle Paul this is my prayer…

Victory News – December 21, 2018

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, I love looking at Christmas decorations. We broke one of our family’s unwritten rules last night: we drove through Candy Cane Lane without snow on the ground. The decorated neighborhood is beautiful. There were thousands  of lights, along with snowmen, reindeer, Olaf, and many manger scenes. Seeing that manger scene reminded me that we need Jesus and the manger more than we realize. We have sinned by breaking God’s law so many times.  But because the…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, Numbers. They’re all over the place. To bake my pizza, I need to set my oven to the number 425. The favorite channel in the Limmer home, at least for 2 of us, is number 30 – ESPN! Aaron Rodgers will often call out Green 19, Green 19 before the ball is snapped. Christmas is 11 days away. Worship on Sunday is at 9:00am and 10:30am. Christmas Eve services are at 2:00 and 4:00 pm Here is…
