Shabbat 9/14/2019

Shabbat Shalom!
Going outside this morning to take Walter on his morning excursion, it was so nice to feel the cool crisp temperature signaling that Autumn is just around the corner! I love this time of the year and it also reminds me that the Fall Biblical Feasts are coming up.  As we are in the Biblical month of Elul and asking the Holy One to reveal unwanted attitudes, behavior, ‘stinkin thinking’, so we are prepared to to receive more of His presence in our lives! 


This Shabbat, September 14th, we will be transitioning from exploring the realms of Faith and Anointing to the REALM OF GLORY. A place where we experience the very character, nature and essence of who our God is. The realm of glory is a place where the flesh cannot bring us to! It’s only by the RUACH Ha KODESH. 


WE WILL NOT HAVE ONEG FOLLOWING THE SERVICE DUE TO HAVDALAH AT THE WESTENDORFS’, SO THERE IS NO MEAL FOLLOWING THE SERVICE!

Join us at 5:30pm on September 14for our Havdalah evening at Tom and Mary’s farm in Watkins! This is a wonderful evening of fellowship, food, worship and closing out the Shabbat together as a family. Bring a hot dish, side, or dessert and drinks will be provided. There address is: 1029 S. Bonnie Lane, Watkins, 80137. See you there!


The High Holidays are coming up! Put these dates on your calendar:
Erev Yom Teruah (Rosh HaShanah); Sunday Sept. 29th@6:30pm
Yom Kippur; Sunday October 8th @7pm
Yom Kippur Break Fast; Wednesday October 9th (time and place to be determined)
Erev Sukkoth, Sunday October 13th@6:30pm

Many other things are happening at Or Chaim! Please keep our Congregation in your prayer, God is moving in a big way and we want to be right in step with what God is doing!

We also have five rooms reserved at Snow Mountain Ranch at the YMCA in a joint effort of unity to gather with the Lighthouse and Shema Congregations for two nights 10/18 & 19 meals included. If interested see Millie for reservation. Millieorchaim@gmail.com

Shabbat Shalom 9/7/19 and Feasts Info

Shabbat Shalom!

We have entered the Biblical month of Elul the last month on the Hebrew calendar and a month of preparation and rending our hearts with the approach of the Fall Feast days! The sound of the shofar is heard, many Jews set aside days to fast and there is an increased expectation of the King’s arrival. The message is clear: get ready; repent; and expect not just visitation, but a manifest habitation of His very presence! The world is not getting more peaceful, the nations have not stopped their roaring against The Holy One, but as we set our minds, hearts and souls on things above, we will see kingdom things happen here on earth! 


This Shabbat, September 7th, I will be sharing about something very mis-understood in the Body, THE REALMS OF ANOINTING. When we engage our faith, we allow His divine enablement (the anointing) to accomplish His purposes for our families, communities, businesses, schools, and yes, even the nations. This is an important series for our congregation, and I would encourage all to come to the service, or at least listen to the audio on our website! 

WE WILL HAVE A POTLUCK ONEG AFTER THE SERVICE, SO BRING A DISH TO SHARE AND STAY FOR FELLOWSHIP! 

Also, this Shabbat at the Oneg, Pastor Dwayne Burris of Gateway on Mt. Zion wants to meet with our security team and those interested in this important issue, to go over some practical matters. 


Hebrew Study and Torah Club as always are being offered!


UPCOMING EVENTS: Next Saturday, September 14th we will be having our monthly HAVDALAH FELLOWSHIP EVENING at the Westendorf’s farm, 1029 S. Bonnie Lane, Watkins, 80137at 5:30pm! Bring a hot dish, a salad, or a dessert and some old shoes so you can tromp around the farm and feed the chickens, horses, and cows! These are wonderful evenings of food, fellowship, worship, and a closing out of the Shabbat, and a lot of fun! WE WILL NOT HAVE ONEG ON THAT DAY AFTER THE SERVICE.


FALL FEASTS: We will be having special services at Or Chaim to observe and celebrate the Appointed Times!

YOM TERUAH (ROSH HASHANA): SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 29TH AT 6:30PM@GOMZ; bring your shofar as we celebrate this Biblical festival, announcing the imminent arrival of the King, and the New year 5780!

YOM KIPPUR (DAY OF ATONEMENT), KOL NIDRE SERVICE: TUESDAY, OCTOBER 8TH AT 7PM@GOMZ; The Holiest day of the year as we corporately repent of our sins and recognize Yeshua as our Great High Priest, whose shed blood made it possible for us to enter into His Presence!

YOM KIPPUR BREAK FAST: WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 9TH; as we close out the Biblically mandated fast, we will gather together to break bread together! FOR THIS EVENT, WE WILL LET YOU KNOW THE TIME AND PLACE.

EREV SUKkOTH (FEAST OF BOOTHS): SUNDAY, 0CTOBER 13TH AT 6:30PM@GOMZ;  special time of rejoicing and worship in the Sukkah! Come on out and decorate and enjoy as we thank our King for an abundant harvest!  


We also have five rooms reserved at Snow Mountain Ranch at the YMCA in a joint effort of unity to gather with the Lighthouse and Shema Congregations for two nights 10/18 & 19 meals included. If interested see Millie for reservation and payment.  


As you can see, there are many things coming up at Or Chaim, including women’s and men’s retreats on the last weekend of September! This is an exciting time of the year, so let’s pray that it will be a sweet time of impartation, visitation, and habitation!

Blessings and Shabbat Shalom!

September Prayer Digest - Elul Fast

September 1 starts the month of Elul this year leading up to the Feasts. It’s a time we reflect and open our hearts to God as we let Him search us and as we respond back to Him in humility and obedience. We sense the Lord calling Or Chaim to a 28 day fast beginning sundown Sept 1 and ending EREV Yom Teruah. We desire each person be led by the RUACH Ha Kodesh on what and how much to fast. We have attached the September prayer digest that can be reached by opening the link.

Shabbat 8/31/2019

Shabbat Shalom!

Well, the effects of jet lag are still hanging around, but getting better. Millie and I returned from our ministry trip to Kenya last Friday and to say that it was awesome and fruitful does not even begin to describe how great a trip it was! Sharing with 130 pastors and church leaders from all over Kenya and even Tanzania was a great privilege at our first conference in Kakongo, Kenya. Teaching, breaking bread with and praying for so many people and seeing breakthroughs, healings and deliverance was simply amazing! Speaking in churches and Bible schools to folks that are hungry for more of God in Meru,  Mololongo, and Nairobi was not tiring rather on the contrary was so invigorating! We even received word today from one of the local pastors that a woman with a “growth” in her abdomen that we prayed for who was scheduled for surgery this week was told by her doctor that she doesn’t need it because something supernatural happened and the growth disappeared(her doctor’s words)! Bwana Asifiwe (Praise The Lord in Swahili)! We are expecting many such reports in the upcoming weeks. Our host said it encouraged his whole group to keep believing. 


This Shabbat, August 31st, I will be continuing our study on REALMS OF GLORY and will be looking at CHARACTERISTICS OF FAITH and how crucial it is in these days that we are being elevated in our trust of The Lord as the times are getting more and more dangerous. We also are entering into the month of Elul, traditionally a season of preparation and searching our hearts in preparation for the Fall Feasts! This will be a very important message so I want to encourage all of you to be there this week! YES, WE WILL BE HAVING A POT-LUCK ONEG FOLLOWING THE SERVICE, SO BRING A DISH TO SHARE AND STAY FOR THE FELLOWSHIP. ALSO, WE HAVE HAD VISITORS WHO WOULD LIKE TO STAY AND MEET ALL OF US SO HANG AROUND FOR A BIT! I DO WANT TO ENCOURAGE THOSE WHO STAY FOR THE ONEG TO BRING A DISH SO WE DON’T RUN OUT!


We will be having Hebrew class at 9am and Torah Club at 3pm this Shabbat. We will be getting to you soon the times and dates for our special High Holiday services beginning at the end of September, and into October. Also, ladies there is still room to sign up for the joint Women’s retreat with Gateway On Mt. Zion, on the last weekend in September, and that will be a great time! On Saturday night, September 14th at 5:30pm, we will have a Havdalah fellowship evening at the Westendorf’s farm! it has been a while since we have had one and we want to encourage you to make plans to attend this evening of food, fellowship, worship and closing out the Shabbat! These evenings are pot-luck and we will be getting out more details for you in the next days! We usually cancel one on Havdalah weekends. 


Blessings and Shabbat Shalom!

Shabbat 8/3/2019

Shabbat Shalom!

From the very first pages of the Bible, we see God’s plan for order, harmony, and blessing in His creation, and that the center of that was to be the family. He places us in family to be his representatives to all of creation! We have our natural families that we are born in to, and then our Spiritual family that we need to be born again into. Over the past two weeks we have experienced that blessing from both our earthly as well as our heavenly family and Millie and I, as well as entire Lewis family want to thank all of you for the care, love and compassion you have shown to us! As you can imagine, it has been hard dealing with the loss of Isaac but we will all walk through this with His grace knowing that He is good, and He is good all the time! All of you are invited to a CELEBRATION OF LIFE FOR ISAAC LEWIS, on Monday August 5th at 3pm, at CHURCH IN THE CITY/BETH ABRAHAM 1580 N.GAYLORD STREET, DENVER 80206.


This Shabbat, August 3rd at 10:30am, we will welcome Tony and Orna Sprendeo from Kfar Saba, Israel! This dynamic couple pioneered HaMaayan (“the well spring”) Messianic Congregation in1989, shortly after Tony immigrated to the Land from France. They have an incredible love for their people and a passion to share the good news to Jews and Arabs in their city, and around Israel. They also have a heart for the unborn, and have been in the forefront of the Right To Life movement in Israel, as well as serving the orphans and widows as the Scriptures command. Many of us have met them as we have travelled to the land, and we are sure you will be blessed to hear their hearts this Shabbat! We will have a pot-bless Oneg following the service, so bring a dish to share and stick around to meet Tony and Orna and enjoy the fellowship with the family!


Next weekend, August 9-11, along with Gateway On Mt.Zion, we will be hosting the ONE CONFERENCE: A MANIFESTATION OF ONE ACCORDon the Mountain, 166 S.Lookout Mt. Road, Golden 80401! PAUL WILBUR AND RON CANTOR, will minister on Friday the 9th at 6:30pm, and both will join with our Shabbat Service on the morning of the 10th at 10:30am. Paul will be ministering on Saturday evening at 6:30pm and again during the GOMZ Sunday morning service on the 11th at 10am. This will be a glorious weekend of worship, prophetic impartation and exaltation of our King from the Mountain! ALL ARE WELCOME, SO INVITE YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY TO THIS EVENT, BUT WE WOULD ENCOURAGE YOU TO ARRIVE EARLY TO ALL THE SERVICES IN ORDER TO GET A SEAT! WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU ALL THERE!

Blessings and Shabbat Shalom!

Shabbat 7/27/2019

Shalom!

This has been a hard week for our family. As many of you know, our grandson Isaac passed away on July 18th. He was a wonderful and fun-loving 24 year old with an infectious smile, a precious wife Kelsey and a 3 year old beautiful daughter (Heather Grace) that had his whole life before him! We know he grappled with inner struggles as many young people do, but we felt he was on his way to overcoming them. I want to thank all of you who have prayed for us, called to encourage us, and contributed to expenses. You truly have shown your love for us, and of course, many of you knew Isaac personally as well as Brian, Michelle, Sara, Michael and Brandon. We will be having a CELEBRATION OF LIFE service at CHURCH IN THE CITY/BETH ABRAHAM, MONDAY AUGUST 5TH, FROM 3PM-6PM. The address is 1580 N. Gaylord St, Denver, 80206. As a pastor, father, and grandfather I want to encourage all of you to cherish your family above all else beside your relationship with The Lord! I am so thankful for the time we have spent as a family, since Brian and Michelle and the kids moved to the area in 2011. We laughed together, cried together, argued, discussed life issues together, and ultimately loved each other because the love of Yeshua is in all of our hearts! The Torah and all the scriptures speak much about our family relationships, and the blessings that come from nurturing and honoring one another in our families. A beautiful passage in Colossians says, “…clothe yourself in tender compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience bearing with one another and forgiving each other …but above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfect harmony.” What better place to walk these values out then in our families!

Millie and I look forward to being back with our Or Chaim family this Shabbat, July 27th! I will be continuing our series with a message entitled Realms of Faith: Hearing, Seeing, Speaking. I guarantee this will be a very practical teaching that we will be able to apply to every facet of our lives! We will also be having a special guest who will be speaking to us during our Oneg, as we welcome Doug Hershey, author of Israel Rising: Ancient Prophesy/Modern Lens. Doug has incredible perspective from years of hands on experience, cultivating unique relationships in Israel and his love for history! He is also founder of Ezra Adventures, an Israel focused travel and education company. He will share for a few minutes in our morning service, and in our fellowship room from about 1pm-2:30. He will also be sharing during an evening gathering at the Larsen’s home at 6:30pm. Their address is: 117 S. Rogers way, Golden, 80401. All are invited!

I want to encourage everyone to bring some food to our Oneg, since it is a pot-luck, and stick around for Doug’s sharing and enjoy the fellowship with the family! This is going to be a really great service!

Blessings and Shabbat Shalom,

Stewart and Millie

Shabbat 7/13/2019

Shabbat Shalom!

We had such a glorious day in the park last Sunday for our Or Chaim picnic! The weather was perfect, food was wonderful and close to a hundred folks from Or Chaim and every other congregation in the city came to enjoy! Thank you dance team and worshippers for making our fellowship so sweet and special! I know personally that there were people in Lions park, who came over and asked who we were and some even joined us for some food. A group of people from Afghanistan came over with their kids and heard Hebrew singing and joined in for a bit! Thank you, Yeshua, that you will water the seeds that were sown and bring forth a great harvest!

This Shabbat, July 13th, we will be exploring different dimensions of faith: LITTLE FAITH; GREAT FAITH; PERFECT FAITH. We will be looking at the difference between FAITH IN GOD, and the FAITH OF GOD! All I know is I want to grow in the faith that Yeshua had, He only did what He saw His Father do!

WE WILL BE HAVING POT-BLESS ONEG FOLLOWING OUR SERVICE, SO BRING A DISH TO SHARE AND STAY FOR THE WONDERFUL FELLOWSHIP. Also, Matthew Smoler, will share a few minutes with us and be available to share some exciting things that he is involved with at our Oneg!

An exciting weekend is coming up August 9-11! Paul Wilbur and Ron Cantor will be with us for the entire weekend. Paul has an incredible ministry as a Psalmist and Prophetic Worshipper and teacher, and has traveled around the world, sharing with thousands about the God of Israel. Ron, lives in Israel and is an anointed evangelist whose passion and zeal for The Lord is contagious! Both of them will be sharing on Friday night, August 9th, and also at our morning Shabbat service on August 10th. Paul will also be sharing at Gateway On Mt. Zion on Saturday evening as well as Sunday morning, August 11th. Come on out for these incredible services and invite your friends, but I would encourage you to come early and get a seat!

As many of you know, Millie and I will be going to Kenya in the middle of August, We will be ministering to several hundred Pastors and leaders of House churches. Please pray that we will have His anointing and His heart as we share about The Tabernacle in the Wilderness, and God’s desire to be in the center of all that we are. Pray also that we can share His love for them, and their part in God’s purposes for Israel in these end days. We consider it an awesome privilege to be sent out from Or Chaim to the nations, to bring Messianic understanding into places that need to hear the good news!

Shalom and Blessings,

Stewart and Millie

Shabbat 7/6/2019

Shabbat Shalom!

What a great week this has been! Last Shabbat was an incredible day as we celebrated the lives and ministries of two women of God who overcame great odds and who walk in powerful anointing, as they give God all glory, honor and praise!  Thank you, Sara and Sally! We also celebrated the birth of this great nation on the 4th of July, which allows us to worship our God in relative freedom and to proclaim that this is truly “ONE NATION UNDER GOD”! It is also a time to reflect on His goodness and all the promises He has for us individually and as a nation, but that we are living in a time when these freedoms we have can be taken away if we don’t stand for the values that made the USA great. With all the craziness going on around us, and the ease in which people criticize and lament the founding of this nation and it’s “original sins”, I am proud of who we are and know that God has a special calling on this nation! I have lived in other nations, travelled to around 40 countries and am quite concerned that too many folks take liberty for granted, and fail to realize how easy it is to lose this precious thing!

This Shabbat, July 6th, I want to continue on the theme of MOVING IN THE GLORY with a message on FAITH. Everyone has faith in something, did you ever think about that? The scriptures are pretty clear though, if my faith is in anything other than God, I’m a fool! We will be exploring this realm over the next few weeks and I am so looking forward to it! THERE WILL BE NO ONEG FOLLOWING THE SERVICE THIS WEEK BECAUSE OF OUR CONGREGATIONAL PICNIC ON SUNDAY. THERE WILL BE NO TORAH CLUB THIS SHABBAT!

SUNDAY, JULY 7TH FROM 11AM TILL 5PM, WE WILL BE HAVING OUR OR CHAIM CONGREGATIONAL PICNIC AT LIONS PARK IN GOLDEN. WE WILL HAVE A GREAT TIME OF FOOD, FELLOWSHIP, MESSIANIC DANCING AND MUSIC! WE WILL MEET AT THE EAST PAVILION AND OR CHAIM WILL PROVIDE BURGERS, KOSHER HOT DOGS, CONDIMENTS AND DRINKS. PLEASE BRING A SIDE DISH OR DESSERT OR BOTH! WE WILL BE HAVING SOME ACOUSTIC MUSIC WITH LYNNE, WILLIAM, AND A DEAR FRIEND OF OURS, AVNER BOSKEY! WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO THE DANCING AND SONGS AND WANT TO ENCOURAGE YOU TO BRING FRIENDS AND YOUR FAMILIES! THE WEATHERMAN HAS ASSURED ME THAT THE WEATHER WILL BE GREAT, SO BRING SOME GAMES AND A TAMBOURINE OR WHATEVER! WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO BEING YESHUA IN THE PARK, SO PRAY THAT HE WILL BRING PEOPLE WHO WILL WANT TO KNOW WHO OUR GOD IS!

THE ADDRESS IS: 1300 10TH ST., GOLDEN, 80401

SEE YOU THERE!

Blessings and Shabbat Shalom!

Stewart and Millie

Shabbat June 29/2019

Shabbat Shalom!This is going to be  a very special Shabbat at Or Chaim. We will have two Jewish women of extraordinary faith sharing their lives with us, and I know that you will be uplifted and encouraged! We were recently introduced to Sarah Moses, a neighbor of our own Jan Rubin. She survived two Nazi death camps, including the same camp that Ann Frank died in. She has an amazing testimony of God’s grace and love that you will not want to miss! We will also be welcoming again Sally Klein O'Connor, who has been singing and ministering to the Lord for many years. She and her husband Michael began IMPROBABLE PEOPLE MINISTRIES many years ago and have travelled around the world sharing in song and testimony of the amazing love and redemption in the Lord, especially for the wounded and hurting. Sally has had the privilege of singing in some of the most notorious places on earth, Auschwitz-Birkenau, Treblinka, Bergen-Belsen, and Dachau “raising her voice in worship and prayer to declare the unfailing, unending mercies of God!” You will not want to miss this Shabbat, and please invite others to hear these incredible and beautiful women of God! WE WILL FOLLOW THE SERVICE WITH A POT-BLESS ONEG, SO PLEASE BRING A DISH TO SHARE AND STAY FOR SOME WONDERFUL FELLOWSHIP!

On Sunday, July 7th from 11am-5pm, we will be having our Or Chaim Congregation family picnic and outreach at Lions Park in Golden! It will be a time of fellowship, dancing, music, and of course food! We will be meeting at the east pavilion, where we will grill burgers and kosher hot dogs provided by the congregation, so all you need to do is bring a side such as a salad, beans, chips and dip or a dessert. We will be having Messianic dance, acoustic music and hopefully some opportunity to share about the Yeshua we love so much with those that don’t know who He is. A musician and good friend of ours the ME Avner Boskey will be joining with us so there will be some great “jamming” between Lynne, William and Avner...so bring a guitar or tambourine if you have one flags and shofar welcome too! The address for Lions Park is 1300 10th Street, Golden, 80401, Also you may want to bring a volleyball or a soccer ball and some games for the kids, it really is a nice park and very family friendly!

Blessings and Shabbat Shalom!

Shabbat June 22, 2019

Shabbat Shalom!

It’s hard to believe that Summer starts this week, it seems only yesterday it was winter! Last Shabbat, we had a special time in the Presence of the Holy One, as we sensed He wanted to minister to those with an “orphan spirit", who needed to be re-Fathered by the Heavenly Father, and also to the widows and those who needed gigantic breakthroughs in their lives. What a wonderful time as we celebrated Father’s Day!

This Shabbat, Spirit willing, I will share the 3rd part of a series on UNLEASHING ANCIENT SECRETS: EXERCISING AUTHORITY, where we will explore how in the realm of the Kingdom and His glory, we can tap into a wisdom that will be needed to stand in the difficult days ahead. The same power that enabled Daniel, David, Paul and Steven to stand and speak to the rulers of their day, is still available to us today! This goes right along with our theme for the year, Hineni, to make ourselves available to The Lord whenever He speaks to us, so that we can influence every situation we are in for the Kingdom of God!

JOIN US FOR A POT-BLESS ONEG FOLLOWING THE SERVICE, SO BRING A DISH TO SHARE AND STAY FOR SOME WONDERFUL FELLOWSHIP.

Hebrew class, dance practice and Torah Club are also taking place so come on out and join the Mishpacha!

June 29 Sally Klein O’Connor Messianic worship artist and international speaker will be with us for the Shabbat service. You won’t want to miss her incredible testimony and worship!

On Sunday, July 7th, we are looking forward to a picnic/outreach at Lions Park in the town of Golden. We are still in the planning stages for this, but we plan on having food, Messianic dancing and some acoustic music. A dear friend of ours from Israel, Avner Boskey, will probably be with us so come on out and lets enjoy the day and share our love of Yeshua with others! If you have some ideas and want to help in the planning, we will be having a meeting at Oneg this Shabbat to discus, feel free to join us!

Blessings and Shabbat Shalom!

Shabbat 6/15/2019

Shabbat Shalom Mishpacha!

This last week has been a powerful time for the Kingdom! First of all, I want to thank all of you who participated with the Shavuot events, intense prayer times, and joining together with other ministries and congregations! Last Friday, we had an incredible time of worship and intercession for Israel and the Jewish world at Resurrection Anglican in Greenwood Village. Churches from around Denver came together as we led an Erev Shabbat service and proclaimed God’s purposes for His chosen people...thank you Lynne for a powerful time of worship! On Shabbat we hosted Bill Bullock for the day and he brought forth some great teaching and impartation of the Aleph Tav vision we so need to reach this world. Our dance team blessed us with The Book Of Ruth, as David Aronstein recited the entire Megilla and dances were performed that brought this beautiful story to life! Shavuot in Central Park and 24 hours of “Passing The Torch” prayer as we joined with Gateway On Mt. Zion rounded out an amazing weekend. Again, thanks to all who participated! It was wonderful!

THIS IS FATHERS DAY WEEKEND SO WE WANT TO WISH ALL OUR FATHERS AND GRANDFATHERS AND BEYOND A HAPPY FATHERS DAY!

This Shabbat, June 15th, I will be continuing our series on UNLEASHING ANCIENT SECRETS as we explore how we can walk in authority when He “downloads” wisdom and revelation to us! Knowing this authority as well as the new identity we have will be crucial in being effective in the dangerous days ahead of us. Yes, God will use us to speak to those in power and He will tell us what we need to speak at that time.

WE WILL HAVE A POT-BLESS ONEG FOLLOWING THE MORNING SERVICE, SO BRING A DISH TO SHARE AND STAY FOR FELLOWSHIP! ALSO, TORAH CLUB WILL BE HELD AT THE LARSEN’S, 117 S.ROGERS WAY, GOLDEN, 80401 AT 3PM THIS WEEK.

Just a “heads up” as summer approaches we will be scheduling some times of fellowship/outreach in the park in the near future. We will let you know the dates as we will probably meet together on Sundays, at Lions Park in Golden. These will be fun times, but also get us out from inside the four walls and into the community! Music, dance, and food are what we are looking at. Stay tuned!

Blessings and Shabbat Shalom!

Shabbat Shalom! 6/8/19

Shabbat Shalom!

The theme of our recent Tikkun conference was “BREAKTHROUGH” a term that is often bantered around but not really understood in a Biblical context. We often believe it to be a “SUDDENLY” of God and often times it is. But I believe BREAKTHROUGH can also be a process over time where He leads us into new territories, new anointing, greater levels of trust and authority, etc. The walls of Jericho falling down was a breakthrough that began as a process starting with obedience to a seemingly crazy plan, walking through that strategy (literally!) and then seeing God do His thing for His glory! Millie and I truly believe that Or Chaim is in a BREAKTHROUGH season congregationally and for each of us individually and the Father wants to encourage us not to sit back and wait... but to press into Him and His word more fervently by praying with an urgency like you have never experienced! 

This weekend is Shavuot, where we remember two great breakthroughs...the giving of Torah and the outpouring of the Ruach HaKodesh! This Shabbat June 8th we will have THE RABBI’S SON, BILL BULLOCK join us for our morning service and continue after our Oneg lunch with an afternoon session.WE WANT TO ENCOURAGE YOU NOT TO MISS THIS INCREDIBLE TEACHER OF TORAH!!  INVITE OTHERS TO THIS SPECIAL SERVICE! WE WILL HAVE A POT-BLESS ONEG FOLLOWING THE MORNING SERVICE SO BRING A DISH TO SHARE (extra to bless our visitors) AND STAY FOR THE FELLOWSHIP.

Erev Shabbat, Friday June 7th at 7pm, we will be leading a night of prayer for Israel and the Jewish world at Resurrection Anglican Fellowship in Greenwood Village as part of the 10 DAYS TOGETHER PRAYER INITIATIVE. It will be a wonderful evening as we welcome the Shabbat, join with other churches in the city, worship and pray for salvation and blessing the Jewish people! The address for Rez Anglican is 9250 East Belleview Ave. Greenwood Village. Hope to see you there!

On Sunday, June 9th from 10am-2pm, we will be gathering at Central Park in Stapleton for our annual SHAVUOT IN THE PARK with other congregations in the area coming together for fellowship, fun, dancing and inspiration in the Word Of God. Bring blankets and lawn chairs, your families (maybe an umbrella) and enjoy the day! There will be Hebrew National hot dogs until they run out, so come on out and enjoy with the greater Messianic Community. \

At 8:30pm on Sunday, we will be entering into a 24 hour period of prayer at the Church for one another and whatever God puts on our hearts to pray FOR UNITY AND BEING IN ONE ACCORD ! PASSING THE TORCH gives us an opportunity to come together in one accord by signing up for one hour time slots where we will pass the torch (literally!) from one hour to the next. There are still some slots available, so come on out and join us, and it is fine to have several people praying at the same time! Use this link to sign up:

As you can see, there are many opportunities to bless others and to receive blessing. This is when BREAKTHROUGH occurs, just as when the Disciples were in an Upper room in Jerusalem, praying in one accord, and SUDDENLY … it happened! An event that changed the world took place, maybe a SUDDENLY to those who were there, but to God it was something that had been on His heart for all eternity and those men just made themselves available!

This will be a powerful time in the Presence of The Lord! Come and join us at this special Mo’ad (Appointed Time), and be expectant that Great things CAN and WILL happen, as we seek Him, not just the things He gives us!

Blessings and Shabbat Shalom!

Shavuot Shabbat Weekend

Shabbat Shalom!

The theme of our recent Tikkun conference was “BREAKTHROUGH” a term that is often bantered around but not really understood in a Biblical context. We often believe it to be a “SUDDENLY” of God and often times it is. But I believe BREAKTHROUGH can also be a process over time where He leads us into new territories, new anointing, greater levels of trust and authority, etc. The walls of Jericho falling down was a breakthrough that began as a process starting with obedience to a seemingly crazy plan, walking through that strategy (literally!) and then seeing God do His thing for His glory! Millie and I truly believe that Or Chaim is in a BREAKTHROUGH season congregationally and for each of us individually and the Father wants to encourage us not to sit back and wait... but to press into Him and His word more fervently by praying with an urgency like you have never experienced!

This Shavuot Shabbat Weekend

Shalom Mishpacha!

We want to invite all of you to a special night of welcoming the Shabbat with worship and prayer for Israel this Friday, June 7th at Resurrection Anglican Church in Greenwood Village. Or Chaim has been invited to lead this very special time as churches from all over the metro area have been joining together for ten days of prayer leading up to Shavuot! The evening begins at 7pm, when we will blow the shofar, kindle the Shabbat lights, and usher in the presence of The Lord of the Sabbath! This will be an exciting weekend as we celebrate Shavuot (Feast of Weeks), the giving of Torah and the Ruach HaKodesh by God! We look forward to seeing you there! I have included the link for 10 Days Together with schedules, times and the address for Rez Anglican. On Shabbat, June 8th, we will be welcoming The Rabbi’s Son Bill Bullock to Or Chaim for an exciting day of impartation! 

Shalom and Blessings!

Shabbat June 1, 2019

Shabbat Shalom! As I write this update, Millie, Lynne, D’Vorah and I are in Ellicott City, Md. attending our annual Tikkun conference. It has been a wonderful time of impartation, re-connecting, and renewing vision for the days ahead. I love this greater “Mishpacha” that God has placed us with! Thursday morning, Lynne led worship for our group and it was so powerful! The theme has been “Breakthrough”, which goes right along with what Father has been sharing with us at Or Chaim. It has been great catching up with old friends and establishing new relationships!
This Shabbat, June 1st, Kent Brown will be sharing the message that God has on his heart. I want to encourage you all to come out and enjoy the presence of The Lord and bless one another! THERE WILL BE A POT-BLESS ONEG FOLLOWING THE SERVICE, SO BRING A DISH AND STAY FOR FELLOWSHIP! Also, we will be having Biblical Hebrew in the morning, however Gateway on Mt Zion Church will be utilizing the whole church for events beginning at 3pm so contact Aaron about where or if Torah Club will be held. Dance practice will also need to end early this week. 
Next weekend is Shavuot and there will be several activities to get involved in. I will be sending out more specific details early next week so stay tuned. On Friday evening, June 7th, we will be connecting with other churches at Resurrection Anglican in Greenwood Village for the 10Days Together prayer initiative. It will be an evening of welcoming the  Shabbat, worship, and praying for Israel and the Jewish people! All are welcome! On Shabbat, June 8th, we will welcome The Rabbi’s Son, Bill Bullock, to Or Chaim for our morning service, and will also have an afternoon session. That evening we will be joining with Roeh Israel for a time of celebration worship. On Sunday, June 9th, we will celebrate Shavuot at Central Park in Stapleton, from 10am-2pm. I will be sending more specific details in regards to the “Passing The Torch” initiative on Sunday through Monday. As you can see there are many opportunities to impact our community, I know it’s difficult to do everything, but ask Father what He would have you do!
Blessings and Shabbat Shalom!
