This is it! This is the most important week out of the year! No, I’m not talking about March Madness or Brewer’s opening day. It’s Easter! The culmination of Holy Week. Better yet, it’s the culmination of history. This is why Jesus was born in Bethlehem. He came into this world to live as our substitute, defeat death on the cross, and bring in new life through his resurrection!
Unlike the Christmas season, Walmart and the radio aren’t going to remind you of this special event. And yet, I would encourage you to do everything you can to celebrate and be glad. If you have already registered for worship, bring your singing voice and be ready to rejoice. If you are going to participate online, gather your friends and family around your computer and party with your fellow believers.
I would encourage you to do everything you can to make this weekend special. This is what our faith is all about. We are resurrection people. We are the people of the risen Christ. So make a joyful noise to the Lord. Death has been defeated. Jesus is alive and rules. And soon he will return to renew all things.
Reaching today’s people with Christ’s victory,

And this weekend, Pastor Ben leads the Easter celebration of Jesus’ victory over sin and death. Seating is full for all these services, but we’ve got unlimited room for you to worship on our live stream site or our YouTube channel.
LIMITED EASTER SEATS AVAILABLE – We’ve had some cancellations for our Sunday 9:00am Easter service. If you were unable to reserve seats for Easter at Victory and would like to attend, we have limited seating for groups of up to 8 people. Please email Kari by tomorrow (Saturday) with your name and number of seats you’d like. She will let you know via email if she was able to accommodate your request. Open seats are first come, first serve. Please note: because seating charts are already completed, we cannot accommodate requests to change seats to 9:00am from another service.
Family Conflict Resolution – It may seem like there’s always a battle going on in your family. Learn why this is and develop some strategies to help you and your family resolve conflicts at our next Parenting Support presentation.

Better Than Heaven – On Tuesday nights, April 20-May 11, Pastor Ben will teach a class called Better Than Heaven.
