Victory News – June 23, 2017 – Big Problems Bigger God!

Dear friends, Last night the storms came through. I think for most of us that meant lightening, thunder and downpours of rain.  For some in the South, however, those storms meant not only lightening, thunder and rain but also destructive tornadoes and the loss of property and possessions. Sometimes in life, we encounter Big Problems. This weekend, as we continue our series “Prayer is Powerful,” our mission partner from St. Lucia, Pastor Bramdeo Ramgolam, is going to dive deep into…

Prayer Is Powerful!

“If God is for me, who can be…who can be against me???” This isn’t just the chorus to the catchiest soccer camp song of all time (You’re welcome, parents?). It’s also a promise of God recorded in the Bible (check out Romans 8:31-39)! Since God has already given us his greatest gift in Jesus who went to the cross for us and has defeated sin, death, and the devil for us, we can therefore trust God for everything else that…

Happy Birthday Church!

Dear Friends, Happy Birthday!! It is time to celebrate at Victory! This Sunday is what many people call the birthday of the Christian Church, or Pentecost.  Pentecost is when the Holy Spirit was poured out on the disciples who were still in hiding after Jesus crucifixion. The Holy Spirit empowered these timid believers to go out into all the world and proclaim the good news. After Peter’s Pentecost message about 3,000 people came to faith!! This weekend Pastor Ben is…

Memorial Day Weekend 2017

Dear Friends, Upside down. Sometimes I consider upside down to be good – like in a pineapple upside down cake. Most of the time I don’t consider upside down to be a good thing. Upside down is another way for me to say that things are out of my control. Last week as we began our new series “Ordinary People Extraordinary God” we learned through Gideon that even when things seem upside down, or out of control, or when fear…

Extraordinary God

Dear Friends, “In those days… everyone did as they saw fit.” Sounds like a culture where people maintain that their own unlimited personal autonomy is the only virtue there is. In that way it seems quite contemporary, doesn’t it? Yet would you be surprised to learn that phrase is actually found in the Old Testament book of Judges where it describes what it was like in Israel 3,000+ years ago? This Sunday we’ll journey back to this time of the…

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…

Easter at Victory of the Lamb!

So if you don’t already have a church home, please join us at Victory of the Lamb this Sunday on Easter! Come meet some people just like you. Leave your emptiness behind. Go home filled with a message of hope! Victory of the Lamb is a church for everyone—including…

Ten Years of Victory!

Dear Friends, Ten years ago. A decade! On Palm Sunday in 2007, our brand new church, Victory of the Lamb, held our first Grand Opening service at the Polonia Soccer Club which we rented on Sunday mornings. It was a one room building that could fit just over one-hundred people. This was our introduction to the community and the first major effort we made to share Christ’s victory with our neighbors. None of us knew then what God had in…

Victory News – March 31, 2017

Hi Friends, Growing up I couldn’t wait to be parent. Parenting was easy, I thought. All you did was say, “yes” or “no,” and mostly “no” and that was all there was to parenting. “No” isn’t always the right answer but sometimes it is way better than “yes.” Check out last weekend’s message and see when “no” is way better than we deserve. Sin brings so much grief into our lives. The most powerful example is death which steals our…

Victory News – Third Week of March 2017

Hi Friends, Happy St. Patrick’s Day! True or false: St. Patrick was Irish. The answer is: False. He was British. St. Patrick was taken captive around the age of 16 by pirates who brought him to Ireland. He would later escape Ireland only to return again and make it his life’s work to convert the wild Celts to Christianity. Patrick saw that their deepest need was Jesus! Speaking of deepest needs. Check out Pastor Ben’s message from last week. And…

Victory News – Lasting Impressions

Thank you to our teen group, Quest, for serving supper on Ash Wednesday this week Dear Friends, I don’t know about you, but last Sunday carved a lasting impression upon my heart. Pastor Mike Duncan’s message on our world mission work in Nepal resonated with me deeply. I think for me it had something to do with the fact that I could see myself reflected in the faces of the young men and their families who are putting their livelihood…

Victory News – Third Week of February

Dear Friends, God is amazing with his grace.  We are not even good and yet God took away all our sin. This is not fake news, this is GREAT news! In Jesus, grace and truth are perfectly fused. ICYMI – check out my message from last week based on Jesus’ words, “Do not judge.” This Sunday at Victory of the Lamb we are continuing our series What Jesus Said as Pastor Ben leads us to come to Jesus as we…
