We're a group of imperfect people striving to live life for God. No matter where you are in life, we hope you’ll find a place to connect to Jesus and others at Orange Ave.
It's Hispanic Heritage month at Eustis Heights Elementary School. Orange Avenue is serving up tacos to go. It is so much fun taking your faith in Jesus Christ out into the world and putting it to work for His glory. Love this Orange Avenue family!
Orange Avenue Church of Christ and Deliver the Difference team up to offer a Mobile Food Pantry Saturday morning September 27. Working together, both organizations were able to share the blessings of God's love with 35 households with 118 people living in them. We were also able to bless the community with 12 bags of groceries to random families in the community. Everyone was incredible and we are looking forward to being back here the fourth Saturday of each month. Our next food pantry will be open on October 25th from 9am-11am.
The church family at OACOC are overjoyed to let you know that Hailey Baker was baptized Wednesday, September 10, 2014 by her dad Thurman. We rejoice in welcoming Hailey to God's family.
You and I, as Christians, as God’s dearly beloved, have a choice to make. How much of God do we want in our lives? What amount, what portion do we want of God? It's the choice between a teaspoon and a bucket. If you bring God a teaspoon and ask for a little peace, a little security, a little comfort, a little protection, just enough to get by—if you bring a teaspoon, He’ll probably fill it.
But what if you brought a bucket? What if you ask God to make your life an adventure of faith; use me way beyond what I can imagine, replace my agenda with your agenda, or give me more and more talents to serve Him; ask God to pour out blessings on people around you and to make you a radical agent of love. Bring a bucket, and He’ll probably fill it.
This week at Orange Ave. we will answer the question, "How Much Faith?" from James 1.5-6. Remember that Bible Classes are at 9 am and Worship Assembly is at 10 am. Bring someone with you.
You’ll remember that early this year we shared our 2014 Ministry Plan “Compelled”. In that plan one of our main areas of ministry was “Help the Hurting”. We said that we will ”Provide food to those who are hungry. This is focused mainly in our local Eustis community but through your giving we never turn anyone away.” That is a huge challenge but one that God has provided a way for us to tackle.
Hey Orange Ave family! Remember that our monthly feeding the families at Eustis Heights Elementary is this coming Thursday. Please be there at 4:30 pm so we can start serving at 5 pm. We would be out by 7:00 pm. If you haven't ever had this serving experience please come out and see what's going on in this ministry.
