Victory News – October 21 2016

Hi friends,

Have you ever heard of that expression, “you get what you pay for”? Do you think it is true? If you are like me, you have gone bargain basement and that is exactly what you received. But then there are other times when you went high end only to get the short end of the stick then too. When it comes to forgiveness, the truth is you and I get what is PAID FOR!  Jesus paid for our sins. There is not a percentage left over. There is no obligation for us to meet. Join me in worship this weekend as we continue our series Who Is This Man? And consider how forgiveness transforms lives!

Speaking of weekend messages, did Senior Assistant Peter Schlicht, knock one out of the park last weekend. Wow! Check out his message for the first time or review it and or share it!

What a blessing it is that we can all share God’s Word! This weekend Pastor Ben will be on TOUR sharing Christ’s Victory! On Saturday, Pastor Ben will be presenting to the women of the LWMS Metro North Circuit. And then on Sunday, Pastor Ben will be in Juneau, as our brothers and sisters in Christ at St. John’s are celebrating Mission Festival! May God richly bless Pastor Ben and the hearers of the gospel message.

Bible studies are going on all over the place and various times. Be sure to check our website:  victoryofthelamb.com  Click on connect and then on small groups to see if there is a study, time and location that is right for you.

THANKS to all of our ministry partners at Victory of the Lamb who do so many things to meet people where they are at with the love and victory of Jesus. If you would like to get involved in serving, see me! And I will get you in contact with one of our ministry leaders who is just right for you!

One of the awesome things we get to do as Christians is support and encourage one another with the unconditional love of Christ. On Sunday, November 20 from 3 to 6 pm, at our Ministry Center we are privileged to serve one of our very dear families in a very special way at the Poulos Family Benefit. It is going to be amazing!! The Poulos family benefit will have activities for all ages. You will be able to shop your favorite vendors, check out silent auction packages and just show your LOVE for the Poulos family!!  To find out more go to our events page. Outside donations can also be made at www.gofundme.com/anarmyforjackson

Last week hundreds or people gathered at the Country Springs Hotel to Celebrate Life! It was a great night of God’s Word, testimonies, good food and friends, and of course celebrating life. Feel free to learn more about the great ministry of WELS Lutherans for Life.

We are soon coming up on the 499th anniversary of the Reformation. There will be a special worship service to commemorate this event. You can find our more on our event page:  https://victoryofthelamb.com/events/reformation-celebration-waukesha/

Sharing in Christ’s Victory,
