Combatting An Envious Heart

Only the One who transcends our hearts can change them.

On Sunday church member Jason Roenicke preached from Psalm 37:1-7. He pointed out that it’s easy to become envious of those who “succeed” in life. It seems that the wicked run the world. But that’s not true. God runs the world. We must fight to trust in Him, delight in Him, commit to Him, and wait patiently for Him.

Get Ready For Street Fair 2019

A Block Party With Tens of Thousands of People

In just a few weekends Old Towne Orange will be overrun with visitors. And we love it. Live music, food, and a whole street just for the kids.

Make the Street Fair part of your plans for Labor Day weekend

You'll need to arrive early that Sunday because parking will be tight. Show up at 9:30am for Sunday School and you'll have no problem.

Don't Skip The Genealogy

God Put It There For A Good Reason

On Sunday Pastor Eric preached from Genesis 10:1-32. This genealogy reveals that every human is in solidarity with every other human. Humanity is one big family. This genealogy shows us the delusion of temporary prosperity. We must work for something more than what we can see. And this genealogy reminds us of the beauty of unmerited grace. Without this genealogy, there would be no Jesus. There would be no new humanity. But thank God, there is.

Three More Years In The Woman's Club

Last week we asked you to pray for our lease negotiations with the Woman’s Club. And on Sunday we announced that God has answered our prayers. The property managers have given us another three year agreement.

For now, we’re here.

We’re grateful to God for providing the historic Woman’s Club of Orange as our place to gather every Sunday. Let’s celebrate His generosity to us.

Pray For The Woman's Club Lease Negotiations

Every church needs a place to meet

For 7+ years our place has been the Woman’s Club of Orange. This building represents God’s provision to us. This building speaks to the history and community of our city. Though not without its quirks, we love meeting here.

Pray for our lease negotations

This week, we are working to renew our lease with the Woman’s Club. Our hope is to stay here and there’s no reason to think we won’t.

Pray that God would give us favor.

Pray for the women of the Woman’s Club who steward this building for the good of our city.

Pray for the property manager and his staff who take care of this beautiful, historic building.

Trembling Joy

What does it feel like to fear a God who is for you?

On Sunday Pastor Eric preached from Genesis 8:20-9:17. Just like Noah, we are in the center of God’s awesome power yet completely safe. We fear God and we love Him. We tremble before Him and we feel His tender care.

Step Out Into A New World

Never lose the wonder of your new life in Christ

On Sunday Pastor Mike preached from Genesis 8:1-19. Noah and his family leave the ark and set foot on a renewed world. This corresponds to the life of every Christian. Those who hide themselves in Christ walk in newness of life now and will one day inhabit a completely renewed cosmos.

Is Jesus Worth It?

Lose everything to have Him

On Sunday Pastor Dustin preached from Philippians 3:3-11. He reminded us that it’s worth losing everything to have Jesus. All we once held dear, all our efforts to earn God’s favor — we count them as loss. If we have Christ, we have all we need.
