Baptism Service

August 28, 2017

This past Sunday, we baptized Caleb.  After an opening prayer and song celebrating our hope in the Lord, the pastor reviewed the pattern for baptism.  Then Caleb confessed his faith in the saving work of Jesus – that Jesus died to pay for his sins and rose again to give him a new life today and a certain hope for his own future resurrection.  He confessed his desire to follow the Lord all the days of his life.  Based on his confession, he was baptized; and we celebrated together his victory in Jesus.

Three Tips For Building Up Your Family

August 15, 2017

Idea One – Use Keys for Kids for a daily family time.  You can pick up a sample copy at the church and Clothing Closet. An order form allows you to get them regularly by mail.  Or access their website for the daily devotional.  Their website also offers safe games for your children to play online.

Idea Two – Read a proverb from the Book of Proverbs in the Bible each day with your family for instruction in wise living.  Topics include work, speech, family, friendship, money, justice, and much more.  You can access the Book of Proverbs online or get a free Bible from the church.  Individual proverbs start in chapter 10.

Idea Three – Get connected with a local church.  In a world that is becoming more and more unfriendly toward the family, your local church offers numerous opportunities to help build up your family.  In addition to the various ministries found here, the church offers a context for mutual encouragement and growth.  Learn from others who have gone before you as you tackle tough parenting struggles and other issues in life.  And maybe you can help someone else as they go through something you have already faced.  Most importantly, the church is a place where you can learn more about Jesus – the only one who can free you from the shame and guilt of your past failures, and give you strength and hope to be the mom or dad, husband or wife or single or child that God made you to be.

Christmas Child Shoe Boxes

January 9, 2017

Operation Christmas Child brings joy and hope to children in desperate situations worldwide through simple, gift-filled shoe boxes and evangelistic materials that tell the Good News of God’s love.  Our boxes have gone to nine different countries.  This is the seventh year our church is participating in this wonderful program.  This year our goal is to pack 6 boxes a month.  Below are some shopping ideas.  Keep in mind who you are shopping for – a Boy or Girl – Ages 2-4, 5-9, or 10-14.

One WOW Gift – Delight a kid! Start with a larger item that will capture the child’s attention the instant he or she opens the box.  Ideas include: Soccer ball with pump, Stuffed animal, Doll, Bigger Toy (puppet, truck, etc.) or Musical instrument (must fit in shoebox).  Hint: This is NOT a $1 item.

PERSONAL Care Items – For each box we want One Soap, One Toothbrush, & One Comb.  (We have plenty of washcloths)

One CLOTHING Item – Options include: Mittens, Gloves, Warm Hat, Short Scarf, T-Shirt, Socks, Flip-flops, etc.

One CRAFT / ACTIVITY Item – Options include: Stickers, Coloring Book, Small Puzzle, Play packs, Art sets, Card Game, Sewing Kit, & Tools.

One TOY Item – Options include: Ball, Jump rope, Small car, Marbles, Etch-A-Sketch, Yo-yo, Costume jewelry, Plastic animals or dinosaurs, Finger puppets, Small stuffed animal, etc.

SCHOOL Supplies – One pencil sharpener.  We will be buying the rest of the school supplies (crayons, colored pencils, notebooks, paper, etc.) in July-August during the back-to-school sales.

Note: No candy, food, toothpaste, liquids, breakable items, war-related items, or scary monster items.

Each month, put your initials in the boxes on the bulletin board for the items you will buy, and/or put a checkmark in the boxes after you bring the item.  Thank you!

Shopping lists are also available at the church.  For more ideas, see OCC’s list of Suggested Gifts.
