What an amazing week getting to see our outdoor landscape transformed! Major kudos to the hardworking crew from McKay Nursery and our member Dick Riege for planning it all and doing so much of the organizational legwork. And thank-you to everyone who provided hoses and those who’ve volunteered to water with those hoses to keep our newly planted 96 trees + shrubs + flowers alive! We’ve got some work to do!

Landscaping Help Still Needed – Members and Regular Attenders, last week you should have received two emails related to landscaping: one about watering, another about mulching on July 9th. Please click on the big green button “View Need” at the bottom of those emails to sign up to help. If you have any other questions or you’d like to know how you can help, please contact Dick Riege / 414.750.7977 who’s overseeing the project. All are invited to help.

Victory News - Soccer Camp Week!

Image
What a great week it’s been at soccer camp! God has given us a terrific week of weather so that over 200 kids + over 30 coaches, helpers and volunteers have heard and helped to share the hope, courage, love, and power of Jesus…while also having fun playing soccer! Today is the final day of camp and afterwards our cookout which I always look forward to because it gives me an opportunity to meet so many people from our community.

This coming Sunday we also are inviting all the kids from soccer camp along with their families to join us at church as the kids will be singing their camp song at the 9 am service.

(Visit our Facebook page to check out pictures from soccer camp this week!)

Likewise this Sunday we’re kicking off a new sermon series where we’ll be taking a journey through the book of 1 Corinthians and seeing how absolutely relevant God’s Word still is to our modern world. So please join me this Sunday at 9 (when the soccer camp kids sing) or 10:45 for worship. Victory Kids durin…

Victory News - Second Week of June

Dear Friends,

“And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved” (Acts 2:47).

How incredible it must have been to be a part of that growing Christian church family that we read about in the book of Acts!

How exciting it would be if we could also be part of a growing church family like that today!

But we can…when we become connected to God by a common faith and we become connected to each other by an uncommon love. That’s what I talked about this past Sunday in my sermon about The Church in part 3 of our series Real-ationships Make All the Difference. Visit our sermon page to watch in case you missed it.

Join me this Sunday as we wrap up this series at 9 or 10:45 for worship. Victory Kids during both services.

Quest Teen Cookout – Calling all teens…Congrats on completing another year of school! In your honor we are throwing a cookout & bonfire this Sunday, June 12th from 6-9:30pm. All teens are welcome and we are also having a competition to see if the boys or girls…

Victory News - First Week of June!

“But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD” (Joshua 24:15).

This past Sunday we explored the context of this important verse from the book of Joshua in the Bible. We then talked about the legacy that we leave when we practice spiritual discernment, draw some important lines in our lives related to our priorities, and daily make the choice to serve the LORD our God who loves us so much that he gave his one and only Son for us.

In particular I highlighted our use of technology as a potential false god or idol in our lives—is it a tool that we use to the glory of God and to help foster healthy family relationships? Or has it become a tool that the devil uses to distract us from what’s really important…or worse?

In case you were out of town or missed last week’s message, remember that you can always check it out via our website. I pray that God might use this message to help build up and encourage the families in our church!

This Sunday as we continue our series “Real-ationships …
