When Jesus Got Angry At A Tree

The Cursing of the Fig Tree
Matthew 21:18-22

A hungry Jesus walks by a fig tree. He sees no fruit and pronounces a curse on it. Immediately the tree withers.

What is going on here? Was he hangry? Just in a bad mood? What gives?

Join us at Sunday School this week as we work to understand the Biblical significance of this event. This is the final week of our special series “The Bible Says What??”

Bring a Bible and a notebook and prepare to engage with us.

Text Reminders For Our Prayer Meeting

Help Us Help You

Bright and early every Tuesday morning a group gathers at our church office to pray. We know not everyone can make it, but if you can, we invite you to join us.

It’s challenging. You’re tired. You forget it’s happening until it’s too late.

But we want to help. That’s why we’ve set up a text message reminder that goes out on Mondays.

All you have to do is text AMPRAYER to 984-203-6255 and you’ll be added to the list. You can unsubscribe at anytime.

If you want to join us for the prayer meeting, sign up.
If you’re not sure you can join us, sign up.
Even if you know you can’t join us, sign up anyway. It’ll be a sweet reminder that your brothers and sisters are gathering to pray.

A New Small Group Is Forming

“…that which we have seen and heard we proclaim also to you, so that you too may have fellowship with us; and indeed our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ.” -1 John 1:3

Your Ministry Keeps Growing

Small Groups are the backbone of our community life. They’re where we live out all the “one anothers” of the New Testament. They’re the place where we know others and are known by others. They’re discipleship hubs.

As previously announced, we’re beginning another small group in Old Towne Orange! Pastor Dustin and his family will host and lead. It’ll be in the evening on 1st and 3rd Fridays of the month beginning September 6th.

Here are a few reasons you may consider joining:

  1. You’ve been wanting to join a group but have not yet jumped in. (Regular attenders and those getting to know the church are welcome to join.)

  2. You weren’t aware that we had small groups and would like to know more about how and why we do them.

  3. You’ve been inconsistent in your current group and need a group that meets on Friday evenings. (Please touch base with your current small group leader first.)

If you’re interested, contact Pastor Dustin for more info.

We Welcome New Members This Sunday

New Member Sunday

This Sunday we welcome new friends into our church. These are individuals God has arranged to be joined to us for our good, the good of our church, and for His glory. They have completed our membership class, been interviewed by our leaders, and are eager to press into the life of our church body.

"But as it is, God arranged the members in the body, each one of them, as he chose." (1 Corinthians 12:18 ESV)

It's one thing to be somewhere, another thing to belong. This is what we communicate when a person becomes a member of our church. We are all agreeing with one another: you belong to us and we belong to you. This church becomes your church as much as any other member of the church.

You belong to us. We belong to you.

Esteem The Prayer Meeting

“We will never see much change for the better in our churches in general ‘til the prayer meeting occupies a higher place in the esteem of Christians.”
-Charles Spurgeon

Every Tuesday morning from 6:30am-7:15am we gather for prayer in Old Towne Orange. We pray because we are needy and our God is generous. We pray because the Lord invites us to ask persistently (Matt. 7:7-8). God is using our prayers to accomplish His purposes.

We know not everyone is able to attend. But if you can, make this part of your weekly schedule.

Get all the details here.

We can’t wait to pray with you.
