Victory News – September 20, 2019

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, I don’t have a good memory. Just ask my wife. I rarely get the facts straight in my recollections. Our conversations usually go something like this: “Hey, honey, remember two years ago when we went to that Julia Roberts movie called Galaxy?” Then my wife will respond, “Yes, I remember, but it was five years ago, not two. And it was a Sandra Bullock movie, not Julia Roberts. And the movie is called Gravity, not Galaxy.” But…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, While on vacation this past summer, Jacky and I went to a fast food restaurant. We ordered our meals and we both opted for water. While I was paying the bill at the counter, Jacky went to the newer Coke Freestyle soda machine. The machine poured her water and she found our seats. I took my cup and went to the soda machine. When I saw a button for lemon water,  thought, “Wow, that’s cool. I…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, How’s that sharing thing going for you? Most two-year-olds have the “not sharing” thing down pat. It’s kind of like, “No way am I giving you what I have, and more than that I want what you have.” They struggle with sharing, even though we taught them to share. Sometimes, we adults are good at not sharing too. For those of us who are Christians, we have the greatest news of all and we often want…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, Economists talk about bad debt and good debt. Bad debt is when you buy things you really don’t need and charge them to your credit card. Bad debts depreciate in value while you are still paying them off.  Good debt is when you take out a loan to pay for something that will likely appreciate in value, like a home. Many of you know that in God’s economy there is bad debt. The bad debt is…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, My son has a dog named Chief. When my son adopted Chief as puppy, everything and everyone scared Chief. People just wanted to hold the cute little Labrador puppy, but Chief was so afraid he would run away. Now, Chief loves to play with people, but he is still afraid of the vacuum cleaner. Sometimes, people run away from God. They are unsure or maybe even super scared. Plus, God knows all the “bad stuff” they’ve…

MESSAGE OF ENCOURAGEMENT Dear Friends, What a week, huh? A huge snow storm, followed by an arctic blast of cold, sent nearly the whole state of Wisconsin into a state of shutdown. School and business closures significantly altered or eliminated many people’s daily routines. While this disruption was a wide-spread phenomenon affecting millions of people, alterations to routines happen at an individual level all the time. It is easy to fall into the trap of believing that God doesn’t care…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE  Dear Friends, Don’t leave. A number of years ago, a young man was very frustrated because God wasn’t answering his prayers the way he wanted God to answer them. So in his anger, he left. He walked away, quitting church and Christianity. Last Sunday night, the Chicago Bears were pummeling the Green Bay Packers. It wasn’t even close. And the Packers’ best player was carted off the field before half time. A lot of Packer fans left…

Victory News – September 7, 2018

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear friends, In recent blog posts, we have been looking at “acceptable sins.” These are sins that have so permeated our culture they seem acceptable, but they are not. In this post, I challenge your hearts with a description of a core sin of our culture: lust. More people, both men and women, are viewing pornography than ever before. When it comes to pornography, the excuses sound like this: it’s not hurting anyone, it’s not someone else’s business.…

Celebrating God’s Generosity

Dear friends, How does your house look? Wrapping paper anywhere? Cookie crumbs decorating your counter-top or even your couch? Pine needles, real or fake, sticking up out of the carpet or like sprinkles on your floor? New toys and new gadgets, here, there, and everywhere? Garbage overflowing? Sink and dishwasher full of dishes? Maybe that is the way your house looks or maybe it’s sparkling clean! Jesus has come into our messy, dirty world and more specifically into our messy,…

Dear Friends, This weekend is going to be a great weekend at Victory of the Lamb! We are kicking off the Fall schedule with a new series called Soul Searching. In this series we are going to ask and answer some universal questions like: Where have I come from? Why am I here? Where am I going? What is the point and purpose of life? Does my life mean anything? Is there a God out there? What happens when I…

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. ICYMI…
