Life in OC!

This Sunday, with great delight, I will return to the pulpit of New Life Church Riverfalls. I have been so pleased with the ministry Aaron Orendorff has had among you.

Here is a brief account of what is happening in Oregon City these past three or four months:

  • October 26th both churches, Maranatha Baptist Church and Light on the Hill Fellowship voted overwhelmingly to merge.
  • For a year, a transitional period, they have surrendered their autonomy to CB Northwest. That means CB Northwest will be responsible for leadership decisions for the year.
  • During that year, New Life Church will be providing guidance, preaching, pastoring and leadership for the Oregon City congregation. We, as representatives of CB Northwest, will be providing transitional interim leadership.
  • They will be called New Life Church Oregon City for this transitional period. After that they may decide to change it.
  • November 2nd was their first joint worship service.
  • November 9th will be Aaron's first Sunday preaching there and my first Sunday back at New Life Riverfalls.
  • November 16th will be their first day in a new building, Lord willing.
Thank you for your prayers. Please don't stop. They are doing very well.
