“Why do you call me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do what I tell you?”

In Luke 6 we find Jesus teaching on the ethics of the Kingdom of God. After a night of prayer, he chooses the apostles, descends down the mountain to a level place, and preaches to those gathered there. The things he teaches about at that time are as diverse as they are challenging to understand and to live out. Perhaps, we can treat those subjects in future articles. In 6:45, after speaking about two types of trees and their fruit, he says that what a person utters with his lips is an accurate reflection of what is going on in his heart. With that sober warning still ringing in their ears, he then asks the question of 6:46: “Why do you call me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do what I tell you?” In S

Overflow Oroville

Last year, our Student Ministries began a new outreach ministry called Overflow Oroville with the mission of reaching our community with the gospel of Christ through performing acts of service for those in need. We would have monthly projects that would allow us to serve our community in a variety of ways, such as serving at the Hope Center, cleaning up a local park, and Christmas caroling at Country Crest.

As we were coming home from that trip, the question was raised, “Why could

In the Circle with the Awana Ministry Director

April is a busy month as our Awana year is wrapping up and many of our clubbers are scrambling to finish their handbook so that they can earn a book award. To help our T & T Clubbers (3rd to 6th graders) with this objective, Frantic Friday was held. 11 clubbers, 5 leaders and their director gathered together to help them reach their end goal. Many verses were memorized to enable 26 completed sections, 5 unit awards were handed out and 1 book was completed. We all ended the night with a much deserved root beer float. As April was speedily coming to a close, we had our annual Grand Prix Race. The clubbers all started with a rectangle block of wood and then amazing transformations took place

7 Ways to Love People

This article by Leah Baugh who is a staff writer for Core Christianity was just recently posted by White Horse Inn Ministry. These basic ways to show love are some of the things we have been trying to teach our two young boys, but are also good reminders to all of us. Allissa Bell Children’s Ministries And this commandment we have from him: whoever loves God must also love his brother (1 John 4:21). Our modern culture is filled with distractions, whether it be technology, work, or busyness in general. Sometimes people are just passing faces we say hello to but don’t really have time for. Showing love can seem like a daunting task that we’re not always sure we can take on with all our other

“Katelynn Jarboe to Serve on Short-Term Mission to Indonesia”

Katelynn Jarboe participated in the Oroville EFC youth program for several years prior to her family’s move to Southern California. She and her sister were involved in the youth worship team, as they play the base guitar and piano. Last summer, Katelynn and her sister returned to Northern California to assist Heidi Lundberg and Pastor Brian Bell in providing music for the church Family Camp. Katelynn is a good example of Proverb 22:6, “Train up a child in the way he/she should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” Katelynn grew up in a loving and supportive Christian home, with a father who served in ministry.
