How Firm a Foundation?

Matthew 7:24-27 24 “Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. 26 And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. 27 And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.” With this challenge Jesus comes to the end of the famous “Sermon on the Mount.” Over the course of a few chapters, Jesus introduces the ethics of the kingd

Brothers, Serve in The Nursery

When I first saw this article on The Gospel Coalition I jumped right on it. I definitely thought of sharing with everyone. It was written to seminary students mostly but has some great reasons and insight for serving in the Children’s Ministry for all. Six months ago I volunteered to do a stint as an assistant teacher in my church’s two-to-three-year-old Sunday school class. My main motivation for volunteering was to help my son adjust to the class. I hoped my presence would calm his fears and within a month or two I’d be able to quietly slip away. He made the adjustments just fine, but six months later I still found myself serving in this capacity. I entered the situation assuming I was sim

Summer - A Growing Season for Women

May and June usually indicate an end to scheduled activities, routine and busyness. For many, summer is the time to buy plane tickets, make camp reservations and go on road trips. The bits and pieces of conversations overheard in grocery store aisles, coffee shops or the church foyer seem to revolve around vacation plans and family reunions. And although most parents and kids appreciate a break from soccer practices and math homework, the study of God’s Word should not fall in the same category. Our desire for godliness should never take a break or be in a holding pattern. What if we were to turn our “down time” into a season of growth, an opportunity to study and connect more, not less? Th

Back to School

The OCS school year is off to a great start! We have 110 students enrolled for the 2018-2019 year. Please be praying in the additional students in Kindergarten through Second grade. Thank you! As I think back over the years (at my feelings regarding the beginning of the school year) I realize how much they have changed. When I was in elementary school I couldn’t wait to go school shopping and get back with my friends after Labor Day. I always woke up early on the first day and was filled with excitement and a little apprehension due to getting used to a new teacher. Then along came Jr. High and High School and I wasn’t nearly as excited. Getting up early became a drag! Also, transitioning to

From the Summer Intern

Ahhhhh--school! The season of backpacks, sharpened pencils, and brand-new clothes. Between the excitement of seeing old friends and the nervousness for the coming year, this time of year keeps us whirling around a million miles an hour, seeking to prepare for the new school year. However, in the hustle and bustle of life, our faith can get lost, shoved down underneath our new plastic binder and mesh pencil case. But the season of life of school is not an excuse to put the work of the Lord on hold; in fact, this season offers a unique opportunity to glorify Him in a way that will never again be possible in your life. God has a unique, hand-crafted, and multi-faceted mission for you to accompl
