Victory News - Palm Sunday

Image
Think of the cheers of Palm Sunday: “Hosanna to the Son of David!” Then think of the jeers five days later: “Crucify him!” We may shake our heads and wonder What happened? And yet how easily we can get dragged along with the wrong crowd!

Join me this Sunday at Showtime Cinema at 9:09 am as we celebrate the victory Jesus came to win for all of us even when we’ve joined in with the wrong crowd.

Holy Week—Since we’re still in the movie theater, we don’t have our own Holy Week services. So instead, be encouraged to visit an area WELS church for Holy Week services. You will be welcome! Here’s a list of opportunities for Maundy Thursday and Good Friday worship services.

Kayla’s Krew News—What a wild week! First there was a special common council meeting held on Monday evening. Then there was another special common council meeting on Thursday evening.

Pontius Pilate and Jesus Christ had two very different ways of doing things, yet they both stood together in the same room. What does this mean regarding the way to achieve success—from the world’s perspective? From God’s perspective?

If you’ve ever struggled with making good decisions in life or you’ve ever wondered how to make God pleasing decisions with integrity, join me tomorrow at Showtime Cinema at 9:09 am as we continue our series People of the Passion. There’s a lot we can learn from the contrast between Pontius Pilate—the one asking questions, and Jesus Christ—the Answer to all our questions!

“No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us” (Romans 8:37).

Kayla’s Krew News—Well this has been quite a week. Actually the last couple weeks have been some of the fullest, most emotionally challenging weeks of my ministry here in Franklin—and not just for me but for many of our friends and neighbors too. Yet God is good! I’m completely at p…

Kayla's Krew - Praying for You

Kayla's Krew We're all praying for you! Thanks for having our back. We've still got yours. That's what friends and neighbors are for. The story of your mission will continue to inspire our community to come together. Don't lose hope! Kayla's Playground will soon become a reality one way or another. From the cocoon always comes the butterfly. You've helped teach us this. And isn't it in ways like this that God often chooses to do his most beautiful work? Here's a little prayer for you from the Psalms: "May the favor of the Lord our God rest on us; establish the work of our hands for us—yes, establish the work of our hands" (Psalm 90:17).

A man who was supposed to have all the answers once came to Jesus with questions. He came under the cover of darkness to get to know firsthand the one who called himself “the light of the world.” Smart move!

His name was Nicodemus. Join me tomorrow as we continue our series People of the Passion to see what happens when curiosity leads to courage because of Jesus Christ.

*Remember – set your clocks ahead an hour tonight. Spring ahead…and see you in the morning! We’ll be sure have the coffee going for you. Bible study at 8:09 and worship an hour later.
