Children’s Play Next Sunday!

We are pleased to let you know that next Sunday, November 4th the Orange County Church of Christ Children’s Theater Club will be presenting a play! Here are the details.

“L.O.S.T. BUT NOW I’M FOUND!”

We’re Setting Sail, we’re flying high, we’re heading towards the sun….

Come along on this voyage with all the crew of the S.S. Hope as they set sail on a day cruise that gets caught up in a storm and becomes stranded on an island. Come see how the storms of life confront them to evaluate if their faith is built on the shifting sand or the Solid Rock, Jesus Christ.

Matthew 7:24-25, “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock”… Jesus

John 6:35, Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.

The Theater Club consists of boys and girls ranging in age from 5 – 13 years old who love to sing, act, and dance and ultimately give Glory to God. Our Club focuses on teaching theater skills and music while holding biblical devotions that coincide with what our focus for that day’s rehearsal is. We are grateful for the many hearts who devote their time and energy to serve these kids and expose them to the many ways they can use their gifts for God.

One Performance Only!!!

You can watch the play this Sunday, November 4th at 11 AM
10 Goodyear, Irvine CA 92618

The Dependable Dozen

Written by bob on . Posted in Marriage, Spiritual Growth

OK.  Here they are…hot off the press–the Dependable Dozen of what works in a marriage.  Thanks to the Youth and Family Ministry for their help in putting these together.  Use them and watch your marriage grow! They are in no particular order. We came up with these after a great public reading of Ephesians 5:21-33 by Kimberly and Jay.

  • Listen to your spouse.  That means not talking and not interrupting while your partner is talking.  It is amazing how much better conversations and conflicts in your marriage go when you observe this simple rule.  It’s not easy, especially when you feel misrepresented and misunderstood.
  • Communicate about schedules.  Pretty simple, huh?  But how often  do married couples not communicate about the week’s business–who needs to be where, who is going to give rides, who needs to get paid what, etc., etc., etc. Talking through these things on a weekly basis will do amazing things for your relationship.
  • Express Your Feelings.  Instead of showing anger, share your feelings. Make sure if you do have a positive feeling toward your spouse that you go out of your way to express it. Communicating on a feeling basis will draw you closer and help avoid bitterness.
