Victory News - Spring Forward!


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.

Coming Up—This week Wednesday I’ll be preaching at St Paul’s in Muskego for their mid-week Lent service. Worship times are at 3:30 pm and 6:30 pm. 

Bible 101 – I'm starting to get a group together for my next Bible 101 class. It looks like we'll get going in April after Easter. Stay tuned for more info. Please let me know if you're interested in participating if you haven't yet. I'd be happy to take into account what days/times you're available to meet. Let me know! 

Hospitality Team –As a church family we want to excel in creating a friendly, comfortable place where all our guests feel welcome. The next couple weeks in the back of the worship folder you’ll find an outline of our plan to include a greater number of volunteers in welcoming guests as part of a new Hospitality Team. Our goal is to have our hospitality plan in place for welcoming guests on April 5th for Easter. This will also give us plenty of time to be prepared for the opening of our new building next winter.

So take a look at the different positions we’re creating. Let Christie or Lauren know if you’re interested. Next week after church on March 15th we’ll have a short presentation at the end of the service followed by a meeting of everyone interested in helping out afterwards as part of the team. Over the last two weeks of March, you’ll have a couple more opportunities to learn exactly what’s expected for the areas you’ll be involved in and receive some training so everyone’s on the same page. On March 29th you’ll pick up your Hospitality Team T-shirts. God willing then, we’ll be ready to go on Easter!
