2018 Theme

What does the number 2018 signify? Why a new year of course… another trip around the sun and back to where we started. It tells us that we have made the journey more than two thousand times since the birth of Christ. It represents the flow of time… cyclic, repeating itself and yet moving forward. It represents the new year that comes after the old year 2017. It represents the moving forward and coming back, which is part and parcel to what life is all about. It is with this in mind that we come to our theme for 2018… “Renew!” This word will be the focal point for the year. “Renew”… what a great word that is: “Re” means “back” or “again.” “New” means… Well, it means what it says. “New.” The idea is that everything can be “new again.” Old things are still around. But they aren’t old anymore. The Apostle John proclaims it in Revelation 21:5. 5 He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.” 2018 is the year for renewal. Let’s seek it in all areas of our spiritual lives.

My name is Ana!

One of the newer ministries that is becoming a massive blessing to our church and to the people the ministry serves is SOCC partnership with the Arms of Hope Family Outreach Center (AOH). AOH provides assistance, counseling and various levels of financial support to single moms coming out of some very difficult situations. AOH’s partnership with SOCC started in 2015 and has blessed many moms over these last 4 years. Below is the story of one of the moms and her family who are members here.

Growing up, I experienced neglect, poverty and abuse. Growing up I felt alone which has always been one of my biggest fears. Loneliness is a dark place where you feel emptiness and fear, without anyone there to turn to. As soon as I was of legal age I was thrown into the world with no armor to protect me from the battles that were ahead of me. With no choice, I dropped out of high school my senior year. Without the support from my family, and with motherhood four months away I began my life alone, rolling from place to place, hitting bumpy roads along the way and being physically and emotionally abused by my children’s father. I managed to live this “Life” for three years until one day, in February of 2016 I grabbed the diaper bag, a baby bottle, my phone, and I started walking, holding one kid with one hand, pushing a stroller with the other while heavy tears ran down my swollen cheeks, I walked… I walked for what seemed to be an eternity. I was alone but I kept walking without looking back.

Three Good Reasons You Aren’t Completely Happy

Can you even begin to imagine what it would be like to be completely happy? Can you imagine unbounded joy? Limitless energy? Total passion? Can you conceive what that would be like? No? Don’t feel bad. There are three good reasons why you can’t… three good reasons why we are not (yet) completely happy.

The Greatest Thing

On one of our recent trips I asked Michele for something to clean my hands. She usually has one of those travel size bottles of sanitizer, but this time she handed me a small packet of hand wipes. We had purchased these while in Greece, and it brought back special memories.

Most people go to Greece for vacation but on this occasion we were there for a different reason. It was Sunday afternoon and we walked into a small park with mainly locals inside. We were specifically looking for someone to talk to and pray for. After greeting a few people we saw a strange sight. A young lady was kneeling and cleaning around and under a public water tap. We walked over (were led over) and started a conversation. She spoke some English, but it was clearly not her first language. Trying to be friendly, we introduced ourselves. We could see that she was poor and possibly homeless. Within the conversation we asked if we could pray for her. She seemed surprised but said yes and shared that we could pray for her job situation. We proceeded to pray that she would find a better job. While praying I perceived that she was watching us very closely and that it was not a typical situation for her. We said goodbye and started to leave. Just a few steps away however, I felt a tug on my heart to go back, so we turned around. She was still looking at us!

My Summer Experience

My experience as an apprentice this summer has been quite eye opening to say the least. Last summer I was very unsure of how to do this job and manage all of the responsibilities that followed. I now have more responsibility than I did this last summer, I thought I would be overwhelmed and cave under the pressure but by trusting God through it all I can say is it has deepened my trust in Him. Ministry with children is challenging but it is also rewarding.

Mind Over Matter

Worship, in a sense, is a practice of mind over matter. If the heart and the mind aren’t fully engaged in the worship, then the spirit more than likely isn’t either. In Christianity, it is very easy to make a time of worship a chore or something that happens because it follows the flow of tradition and fills in gaps.
