Parenting:  A Sacred Task

Parenting2016FPParenting in today’s world is a challenging task because there are so many influences surrounding our children that are contrary to God’s vision for them. However, through God’s word and help from other godly parents, we can be successful in raising our children to be all that God has intended. Please join us as we learn how to be great parents together.

Speakers:

James & Wende Hamann have been disciples of Christ for 32 years and married for 27. They have 3 children; Sorin 23, Travis 19, and Karley 12. Both have served in the ministry for 16 years and for the past 10 years have been educators in High School and Middle School.
James and Wende have done an outstanding job raising their children God’s way and have many varied experiences that will be relatable and helpful in our own parenting.

Hope Saturday

HOPE Saturday Academy

HOPEww“Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.” Matthew 9:35-36

Jesus’ ministry and heart for the needy and poor has served as the benchmark for all disciples in making a difference in our local communities. What a privilege it is to continue the legacy of service today. We are excited to finally announce that we are starting our HOPE Saturday Academy this April! Please see the info below as well as the flyer attached for more info. If you are interested in volunteering or have questions please contact us today. Thanks.

WHO: All volunteers over the age of 14

WHEN: Saturday mornings from 8:30am – 12noon

WHERE: Heroes Elementary School in Santa Ana

2016 Service Brigade

Written by OC Disciples on . Posted in Reporting

Guatemala Service Brigade

IMG_0866What a beautiful experience being able to serve in Guatemala last month! This was my second community brigade with Hope Worldwide. I have never felt more connected to God than when serving others in need. Children traveling 4-5 hours on bus just to ask for Tylenol. Mothers, grandmothers, aunts and uncles asking for reading classes to study the bible. Orphans filled with tears when receiving multi-vitamins, wellness checks, access to medicine and dental care for the very first time. I met farmers in desperate need of pain medication only to subdue their aches in order to continue working in the fields and provide for their families.

Dental WorkIt’s mind blowing thinking that I take these trips with the intent of “giving” yet God fills my heart in more ways than you can possibly imagine. My life has changed forever. I no longer want to travel for myself….As disciples we are called to help the less fortunate and spread God’s love.

ChandraWhatever you’re able to give: time, talent, medical skills, artistic skills, friendship, donations, or just a faith filled heart, there are hundreds of people that God has allowed us to assist. I truly believe this is how we glorify him and find our place in God’s story.
