You're Invited - Groundbreaking Celebration!

Image
Hello Friends,

I’d like to personally invite you to join me along with my church family, Victory of the Lamb, for a special Groundbreaking Celebration next Sunday, May 31st.

What – Groundbreaking Celebration!
When – 11:30-11:50 am on Sunday, May 31st
Where – Our land located at 11120 W Loomis Rd – Franklin, WI 53132

Our plan is that we will have our regularly scheduled church service at Showtime Cinema here in Franklin just up the road at 9:09 am. The service will last 70 minutes. You are all invited to join us for that as well. We’d love to have you as our guests!

After that it will take some time for our tear-down crews to put everything away at the cinema. But everyone is invited as always during this time in between to gather in the spacious Showtime Cinema lobby where our Victory Café will have a special spread of food and drink for all to enjoy. Those of you who've attended one of our services before know that this is actually pretty much par for the course for us!

Victory News - Confirmation / Groundbreaking Celebration!

Image
We might have expected Jesus’ disciples to be heartbroken when he left them and ascended into heaven. But they weren’t! The Bible simply says that the disciples worshiped Jesus and returned to Jerusalem with great joy. How could they do that? Because Jesus was still with them—he was ruling over them from his position of power in heaven. Jesus promised to be with them always, and he promises us the very same thing. Join us this Sunday as we continue our series Words With Friendsas we unpack what Jesus meant when he said, “You will be my witnesses.”

Confirmation Sunday—This Sunday, ten of our students—Jr High and High School aged kids—will give a public testimony of their faith in Jesus Christ and will have the privilege of receiving Holy Communion for the first time which they will do as a group. As a church we have the honor of celebrating with these students, worshiping with them, praying for them, and just being there to encourage them in their continued walk of faith. I…

Hello Friends,

Through his life and death Jesus taught us that God’s love is a self-sacrificing love that finds fulfillment in serving others. All we do in life is to be marked by this type of love as we live (and love) by his words.

Join us this Sunday on Mother’s Day as we continue our series Words With Friends. I’ll be talking with you about what it means that Jesus actually considers us his friends. “Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends…I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you” (John 15:13,15).

Special Ascension Service — 40 days after Jesus rose from the dead, he ascended into heaven. On Thursday, May 14th, 40 days after Easter, you are all invited to participate in a special Ascension Day service at Centennial Lutheran Church just down the road. Our Victory of the Lamb worship band will be leading worship. Professor Daniel Leyrer from Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary will be the …

Victory News - Turning Dirt!

Image
This Sunday we’re starting a new series called Words With Friends. Each week in this series we’ll be learning directly from Jesus as he taught his friends (which includes you and me!) some of the most important truths he wanted them (us!) to remember and put into practice.

Turning Dirt! – A picture I posted on our church Facebook page on Tuesday received over 1,000 views! Why? I suppose for me it was because seeing the dirt mover next to our “future home of” sign on our land was the culmination of years of hard work, prayer, and God’s blessings. But the good news is that that piece of heavy equipment didn’t just stay parked next to the sign all the week but already on Wednesday it was busy turning dirt. Sitework has begun and soon we’ll have a campsite set up and ready for the Builders For Christ to arrive at the end of May. And speaking of the Builders…
