Victory News - Benefit Sunday

Poulos Family Benefit, Sunday 3-6 pm

Dear Friends,

This afternoon at 4pm, the Franklin High School football team is playing in the D1 state championship game in Madison against an undefeated team from Kimberly. What an exciting opportunity for those football players to compete for the title of state champs! A video was posted online of the team buses pulling out and heading to the big game.

I’m guessing though there wasn’t a video of you heading off to work today, was there? No police escort. Nobody lining the street wishing you the best. At least there wasn’t for me.

And yet… in a very real sense, God has also put us together on a team. His team. The Church. Together we have a mission. To share Christ’s victory…over doubt, over despair, over previously unbeaten death itself.

Join me this Sunday as we conclude our study of 1 Corinthians with God’s promise that because Jesus lives…our mission work in this world is NOT IN VAIN. He is cheering us on!

“Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain” (1 Corinthians 15:58).

(ICYMI watch Pastor Bill’s sermon from this past Sunday about how all bad things must come to an end.)
