OAK GROVE OPRY 2017
Message From Our Pastor
As we approach the 29th annual Oak Grove Opry, I reminisce of the ones I attended many years ago when I was in high school. I recall seeing lots of folks I looked up to performing on stage, wondering how they did all the amazing songs and scenes, and I also remember how each one seemed to look just like the star they were portraying. Ruel is certainly right when he states, “When you are up on that stage, you become that person you’re dressed as.”
Oak Grove Opry 29. Why has the Opry sustained all these years, why has the Opry continued to attract audiences, and why do so many individuals sacrifice so much to help, serve, and pour into this? I believe it is because of our theme verse-
Colossians 2:7-Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.
When reading this verse of scripture I think of the tremendous roots here at Oak Grove…the former pastors, our families, our loved ones who have passed on, our communities, and our Savior. It’s one thing to be rooted, and it’s wholly another to be rooted in Him! He is our source, and He is why we have life, therefore as the scripture says, we are so very thankful. Jesus is why the Opry continues, Jesus is why the gospel goes out, Jesus is why church camp is terrific, and Jesus is why lost boys, girls, men, and women can be born again! It’s all about being rooted In Christ.
