Listen to the sounds of a whole 'nother O, The Oregon Community! Join Pastors Ryan Saari, Ron Hockley, Bob Vander Meer and special guests as they pontificate on love, life, and the Bible. From Acts to Zion, the word of God is spoken into our ear-holes and absorbed into our eternal-souls. Join us, who knows, you may learn something!
Together, we're going to go through the life of Jesus. His teachings, and his death and resurrection. Discovering all along the way what this Gospel is. At every step, every stage, it's God flipping civilization on it's head. Reconstructing, not only the questions, but most definitely, the answers.
Holidays, guest speakers and special sermons. Here you will find them all.
This week we kick off our New Series! Together, we'll be spending the Fall going through the Book of Ephesians. We're calling it "Your Church is Too Small".I can't wait for us to dive into this book that is about, among many things, what "the Church" is. Or, maybe more importantly, WHO the Church is. Looking forward to what we discover together.
Throughout this series, we're going to be looking at various ideas, relationships, practices and theories and simply ask, "Is this outdated?" Have we been banging our heads against the wall, trying to break through. Trying to understand. Trying to grow. But in reality, we're approaching the whole thing wrong. It's antiquated. It's outdated.
Our new series is called Words and Stories. We will be looking at, you guessed it, words and stories that Jesus told. Some are the ones we gloss over because they don't make any sense, others we gloss over because we've heard them again and again. But there's more. There's always more.
This isn't going to be another "Put your best foot forward" kind of series. This is going to be a battle, a war. The choice to follow the Spirit, to be lead by our muse. Engage in the power and beauty of this life, or be conquered by it, and just be another epitaph: born this day, died this day. I'm excited to win this war, together. Come join us...
Together we're going to study each of the Fruits of the Spirit, and talk about how they're more than just "good things" that we should do. It's more than just a list of virtues. Right?
As our church approaches a milestone birthday, we take a look once again at who we are.
I thought I read everything... until I read this!
Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time.
He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannont see the whole scope of God's work from beginning to end. Ecclesaistes 3.11
