Message From Our Pastor
A word comes to mind as I think of what is coming up for each of us, and that is anticipation. Surely, our youth are full of anticipation for the final days of school and the summer break. Many of you might be packed with anticipation as you watch and pray for what you’ve planted in your gardens to sprout and mature. Still others have anticipation regarding a new venture, a new relationship, a new addition in your family; while others see with anticipation the healing of a sickness, the return home of a loved one, or the renewal of something that has gotten away.
Though anticipation is not always looked at positively, I truly believe our Savior desires we have a great and lively anticipation for the coming weeks and months! Why shouldn’t we? If we look ahead, VBS is on the horizon, Summer Revival is closer than ever, Church Camp is a few months away. No doubt all of these opportunities give us an excitement of what amazing things God has in store, and may we all look with tremendous anticipation for Him every step towards these important times, and during these awesome events.
Oak Grove looks ahead with superb faith in Jesus Christ for the blessings He will mercifully give today and this coming summer!
1 Peter 1:3 speaks of a lively hope, and I’m so honored to know our lively hope, our anticipation, is in Christ and Him alone!!!
