Victory News – August 28, 2020

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, This past week, the crisis in Kenosha was added to the long list of traumatic, dark events in 2020. I spent the first half of my life in the Kenosha area, so this incident hit close to home. Throughout the week, I found myself sucked into all the news surrounding the events, as well as following the many different views on social media. I found the more I went down the rabbit hole of opposing opinions,…

Victory News – August 21, 2020

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, Maybe you’ve had a similar experience to Chris’ mom. Three-year-old Chris was one of three boys in a family who lived in North Carolina. Allison (also three years old), her two sisters, and her parents were his neighbors. On hot Friday afternoons, the two moms and six kids would pile into this big ugly green station wagon and drive an hour to the beach. They would spend all day at the beach and then jump back…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, Can I be honest? Weekend worship is bittersweet for me. I remember a few months ago when we entered church to the smell of fresh egg-bake and hot coffee. I remember how the worship space was filled with people singing to their God. And our biggest problem was our overcrowded parking lot. I remember how Sunday morning seemed to be my one-stop-shop that met my physical, emotional, social, and spiritual needs. And it all happened in…

Victory News – March 6, 2020

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, Things changed, literally overnight, when I moved from Texas to Wisconsin to go to college. Culture shock set in. Here are a few of the differences: I went to a high school with almost 5,000 students and then I went to college with not quite 250 students. Friday nights were about football in Texas, along with all-you-can-eat enchiladas, tacos, burritos, quesadillas, and sopapillas. In Wisconsin, Friday nights were about all you can eat fish fry. In…

Victory News – December 13, 2019

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, In his book Unshakable Hope, Max Lucado writes: “Two people set out to build their homes. The first went to RPF Home Supply (Regrets, Pain, and Fear). He ordered lumber that was rotted by guilt, nails that were rusting from pain, and the cement that was watered down with anxiety. Since his home was constructed with RPF supplies, every day was consumed with regret, pain, and fear. The second builder went to different supplier. She secured her…

Victory News – August 30, 2019

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, Sometimes when a golfer shanks their first tee shot, they are allowed a mulligan. A mulligan is a do over, a second chance. Sometimes when students bomb a test, the teacher will allow them to retake it. The teacher will give the student a second chance. Can you think of a time when you needed a second chance? A lot of times when we need a second chance it begins with us admitting our mistake -“I’m…

Vending Machines, Microchips and Prayer

Dear friends, One of our Core Values at Victory is Youth Engagement. God has blessed many of our families with children and God has blessed all of us with our Victory Kids ministry. It is so cool to see the smiling faces leave the Victory Kids wing on Sunday morning. Time and again, parents tell me how their child(ren) can’t wait to get to Victory Kids! So a “shout out” to God and to all who use their God-given gifts…

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…

September 2016

September 12th, 2016 6:30-9:30 pm at the Ministry Center Present: Jay Justmann, Wes Andersen, Jeff Guenther, Ron Takacs, Pastor Ben Kuerth, Pastor Bill Limmer. We began as Pastor Bill led us in a study of Psalm 97, talking about how comforting it is that “the LORD reigns” no matter what decisions we make and no matter what takes place. He is in control. In the world. In the church. In our homes. In our lives. And He is just. He…

August 2016

We began by studying Psalm 95 and talked about how we are “humbled by grace” as well as need to trust our loving God in times of testing. Pastor Ben then opened our meeting with prayer. We then proceeded to celebrate Victory stories, which ranged from the success of Pastor Bill’s installation party (special thanks to Cassy for organizing), to a couple great success stories from Bible 101—including the joy and appreciation expressed by individuals receiving the Lord’s body and…
