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.
God does not want us to commit our life to Him and tell Him, “God, I cannot wait to spend eternity with you in Heaven,” but then live our life, go through our days as though He doesn’t exist. To live like we really don’t know each other, to live like we’re not really friends.
This is a backdrop to James 4.13-17 that we’re going to be looking at Sunday at Orange Ave. Studying in James, today we finish up our series, Christianity Uncensored. James is describing somebody who is living their life in just that way, they’re living their life as though God doesn’t exist. They’re living life without God.
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.
