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.

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.

We'll have blankets to sit on but please feel free to bring a blanket or a folding chair.

This Is Not A Children's Story

Noah and the Flood

On Sunday Pastor Eric preached the opening verses of the story of the great flood from Genesis 6:9-22. He reminded us of this sobering truth: nobody can escape the consequences of their sin unless they get in the boat. The flood reminds us that God sees every sin and injustice, God judges everything sin touches, and God saves those who trust in His mercy.

For The Dreamers

May we be gospel optimists

On Sunday guest preacher Ricky Alcantar, from our sister church in El Paso, preached from Isaiah 2:1-5. He encouraged us to let our dreams be God-sized: peace with all men, joyful unity, and lasting justice. We long for the day Jesus will make these dreams a reality. Until then, we do all we can to live in the good of the gospel today.
