Victory News - Easter is Just Around The Corner!

Thank you to everyone for providing beautiful flowers for the altar every week!
Dear Friends,

Do you see how God can use your story, including your weaknesses, to bring him glory? In case you missed it, watch or read my sermon from last Sunday about how God opens our eyes to see what he’s up to in our lives…and what even more amazing things he has in store!

This Sunday we continue our series Like Us In Every Way as we learn what it means that Jesus drank the cup of suffering for us. Join us at either 9 or 10:45 as we worship God, grow together, and welcome guests from our community.

Call Decision – Did you hear? This week I officially decided to decline the call to St John’s in Two Rivers so that I can continue to share Christ’s victory with you at Victory of the Lamb. You can read the letter I sent to our church family posted here. Thank you for all your encouragement and prayers!

New Bible 101 Opportunities Starting Soon! – Bible 101 is the first step at our church for anyone who has questions about God, wants to learn what we believe or teach from the Bible, or is interested in receiving the sacrament of holy communion with our church family.

Easter for Kids is coming up soon! It’s an awesome, fun outreach event for kids of any background. 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.

Soccer Camp 2017 - Mark your calendars for the best week of the summer! The 10th annual Soccer Camp will be June 13-16 This year camp will be from 11am-3pm and include lunch. Register here. Hurry, space is limited and June will be here before you know it!

Fun Runs – There are a number of 5K runs coming up in the area that you might want to enjoy and support. The Seminary Scurry is scheduled for April 29th at Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary in Mequon! For more information and to register go here.  On May 6th is Operation Fit Franklin, the first of its kind.  Register here for Operation Fit Franklin. Kristin Andersen of the Franklin Health Department is also looking for volunteers. Email or call her at 414-427-7537 if you’re able and willing to help.

Life-a-thon 2017 is Saturday, May 13th. Benefits the pregnancy care ministry of WELS Lutherans for Life. Get friends together, recruit sponsors, and help save lives! Two locations: Mequon and West Allis, or go virtual. Walk or run with everyone else or on your own! $25 individual or $60 family. Register at www.Life-A-Thon.org or call 414-727-8176. If you’re unable to attend in person, you can also participate "Virtually" on your own or with some friends. Learn how at Life-A-Thon.org/virtual-participation. Watch a Life-a-thon 2017 promo video here.

Victory Kids – Volunteers Needed. Our Sunday morning kids’ program continues to grow! Please consider volunteering and make a huge difference in the lives of kids. A once a month commitment is all that is needed. Training provided. There are many roles to fill besides being a teacher. Some with little to no prep required. What is required? Most of all a heart that loves God and a willingness to show that love to others. Contact Liz to volunteer.

Host Team – Volunteers Needed. You may have noticed…the lobby quickly fills with people on Sunday morning and we’re growing. This is wonderful! What it also means is that it’s more important than ever that our guests feel welcome and are able to find their way around. It can be intimidating to attend a church for the first time. This is where the Host Team helps by creating great first impressions. Please consider helping out once a month. Contact Christie to volunteer.

Leadership Team meeting notes from our March 13th can be found online here. Printed copies also available on the info table at the ministry center.

Sharing Christ’s Victory,

Pastor Ben
