Victory News - Love Your Enemies

...and why he said it.

Dear Friends,

“Align your heart with Jesus and you’ll find no room for hate.” ICYMI – Watch my message from last Sunday based on Jesus’ words, “Love your enemies” as part one of our new series What Jesus Said. Special thanks to our VotL teen band who led the music for their first time together in a service!

Tonight I’m putting the finishing touches on my presentation for the Men of His Word conference Saturday in Oshkosh.

This Sunday at Victory of the Lamb we’re continuing our series What Jesus Said as Pastor Bill helps us better understand and apply Jesus’ words, “Do not judge.” I look forward to seeing you this Sunday as we grow together in our understanding of Jesus’ words that help us to balance truth and love.

Easter for Kids is a one day event where kids will learn about Jesus’ resurrection in exciting and powerful ways. Kids will experience the gospel message through skits, interactive learning stations, crafts, games and snacks. It’s an experience they won’t soon forget! Join us on Saturday April 8th from 11am-3pm at Victory of the Lamb. This program is open to anyone ages 3-11 and is free of charge. Lunch is also provided. Kids are invited to join us on Palm Sunday, April 9th at 9am when the kids will sing their song in church. Click here for more information, to register, or to sign up to help.

Alison’s Choice – Free Movie Event. As many of you know, I’m on the Board of Directors of a wonderful pro-life group whose mission is protecting a child’s right to live and be loved. We’re hosting a free movie event on Friday evening, February 24th at our ministry center. Invite your family / friends to join you for a positive message film about God’s precious gift of life. Please RSVP here to let us know you’re coming or to watch a trailer for the movie. Because of the story, it is somewhat a PG-13 movie. Doors open @ 6:30pm, Screening @ 7pm.

Usher Team – Volunteers Needed. Still looking for a couple more ushers who would be willing to serve once a month to help provide a friendly face, help people receive a worship folder, collect the offering and find their way around. Please contact Karl if you can help or to learn more.

Pre-marriage Class – I’ve got two couples lined up to take part in my 4 session pre-marriage class. More are welcome. 2/28, 3/7, 3/14, and 3/21 from 6:30-8:00 pm. Contact me with questions.

School Open House - St. Paul's Lutheran School in Franklin (on 51st and Rawson) is showing off their school this Sunday, February 12th 11:30AM until 2PM. They have changed their tuition policy to make Christian education available to members of Victory of the Lamb for the same rate their members pay. They are committed to sharing their quality, Christ-centered school with us, their brothers and sisters down the road. Come and grab a snack, meet the teachers, see the classrooms, and learn about the great education available to students from 3k up to 8th grade. If that doesn't work for your schedule, you can always call and set up a different time to visit (414-421-1930).

Next Leadership Team Meeting – is this Monday at 6:30 pm at the ministry center. If you have any questions or concerns regarding our mission and ministry, please feel free to reach out to anyone on the Leadership Team.

Sharing Christ’s Victory,

Pastor Ben
