As we quickly approach the 2012 Easter season I’m reminded of the power of “the invitation.” We have been blessed with a lot of new faces around OneLife Community Church but many of those people have come from driving by our place and wondering what’s going on inside. Others have seen our signs out on the streets or have come to other extra activities that are connected to us, like the PJ Party, Martial Art Classes, rentals, conferences hosted at our place, etc. How many have come because you or I or better yet “we” have invited them? There is great power in being invited to something. I wanted to challenge us all to prayerfully consider those friends, family, neighbors, coworkers, etc. that you know that you could invite to OneLife. Our 2012 Easter service will start on April 1st with our Palm Sunday service starting at 10:30am. It will have some super cute kids involved in it that you won’t want to miss along with great music, teaching, and more. And then on April 8th we will have our 2012 Easter Celebration Service again starting at 10:30am. This will be a all out celebration of the risen Christ! Great music, teaching, festive activities for kids of all ages, awesome coffee and refreshments, and more. Thanks in advance for your active participation in praying for our service and inviting others to join us in celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ!

Hi all, I just heard back from Dennis after his morning follow up Dr. appointment. Overall it is good news! They said that today would be his last day of getting his antibiotics via IV. He has been going in … Continue reading
Thankfully he is slowing getting better and the doctor decided to hold off on that decision till Monday. So please continue to pray for healing. Dennis feels as if he is getting his strength back but is still in pain. He is also having a very hard time not being able to do things. So pray for rest, healing, and peace. Pray that come Monday there would be absolutely no need for surgery.
I’ll keep you posted as new information comes in. Thanks for all your support and prayers!
Grace and peace,
As I am reading through the gospels I am continually struck by how many references there are to Jesus and his disciples eating. I am realizing what an integral part of Jesus’ ministry it was. He blessed people, was blessed … Continue reading
Here is the most recent update on Dennis.
So at this point it looks like he has some sort of staff infection (but honestly they aren’t for sure). His treatment allows him to be home but he needs to go in for his medication every 12 hours. As long as he sits and takes it easy he feels pretty good. :).
Here is the deal. If he doesn’t show improvement by Thursday they will then have to move forward with some orthoscopic tests. Please continue to pray for rest and for complete healing. At this point he is looking pretty out of commission for another week or more.
I will keep you posted if anything changes.
Hope you all are having a great Monday.
Grace and peace,
