Connecting Lives, Building Faith, Releasing Destiny
Hello OLC Family! We hope you had a great long weekend!
If you missed our message from last week, it was not recorded as we were outside at Galt Gardens, but for any of our other sermons you can head over to our website
page, or you can listen to them through many of the podcast services available. Our
Livestream is also available
It was great to have so many of you at the park on Sunday! Thanks for coming out!
"Experiencing God in Prayer" is starting tonight! Come to the church at 7:00pm to join us for a time of praying for healing as well as for the upcoming evangelistic outreach, and a teaching by Jennifer Thomas.
We're looking forward to having Mel Israelson as our guest speaker this Sunday!
We're hosting a "Celebration of Life" service for Glen Siggelkow on Saturday, August 13th at 2:00pm. If you knew Glen, we invite you on behalf of Johan and family to come and celebrate his life with us.
God has made us new, but how often do our thoughts tell us otherwise? The devil loves to fill our minds with thoughts of discouragement and the so-called "reality" of who we actually are deep inside. God's word says one thing, and the devil tells us another, and we are the ones who must choose what we will believe. I love how the Passion translation puts it: "Now it's time to be made new by every revelation that's been given to you." Having revelations of who we are in God and knowing what God's word says will only change our lives if we embrace it as our reality. Just as owning an umbrella won't keep you dry if you don't use it, knowing the Bible won't change you if you don't act on it.
God has made us new. Let's embrace it!
"You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness."
Ephesians 4:22-24 NIV
