Hanukkah Celebrations 2018

Chag Hanukkkah Sameach!

What a wonderful time of the year it is as we celebrate Hanukkah, the Feast of Dedication! We are reminded of a faithful remnant who displayed great strength and took courageous action in the face of incredible odds. They knew that our God is a MIGHTY WARRIOR WHO GOES TO BATTLE FOR HIS PEOPLE! We are also reminded that it is a season to re-dedicate our “temples” so that we can let the light of Messiah shine through us to a dark world! We had a wonderful community celebration for the first night of Hanukkah at Roeh Israel on Sunday. What a glorious and sweet time as hundreds of us gathered for fellowship, communion, food and celebration to usher in the first night of Hanukkah!

We will be having several gatherings this week as a congregation. We will be meeting in homes throughout the Denver area and all are invited!


THURSDAY DECEMBER 6TH: RUSS AND SIRI CRIDER, 6PM. 22493 E. MAPLEWOOD LN. AURORA, 80015. THEY HAVE ASKED THAT WE BRING EITHER FRUIT, BREAD, OR JELLY DOUGHNUTS! AND OF COURSE BRING YOUR HANUKKIAH AND CANDLES!


FRIDAY DECEMBER 7TH: KIRK AND LAJUAN BUSBY AND FAMILY, 6PM. 6908 W. NOVA DR. LITTLETON, 80128. BRING A DISH TO SHARE AS WE WILL HAVE A POT-BLESS AND YOUR HANUKKIAH AND CANDLES!

SUNDAY DECEMBER 9TH; AARON AND EARLENE RICH, 5PM. 5155 W. QUINCY AVE. B102, DENVER, 80236. THEY WILL PROVIDE SOUP AND “DANGEROUS DESSERT”! SO, BRING A DISH TO SHARE AND YOUR HANUKKIAH AND CANDLES!`


These are special times of candle-lighting and fellowship and sharing the love of Yeshua as a community.

This Shabbat, December 8th, I will be sharing the first of a two-part message on THE RESTORATION OF ALL THINGS; MAKING SENSE OUT OF THE CRAZINESS AND CHAOS! We will take a Biblical look at the similarities between the ‘Acts of the Apostles’ in the first century, and the period we are living in today. Do you realize that for the first time in 2000 years that Israel, the Church, and the Messianic Jewish community are existing together at the same time? Do you know that you are CALLED AND DESTINED to be part of His END OF THE AGE plans? Come on out this Shabbat and enjoy the Mishpacha together!  

THERE WILL BE AN ONEG AFTER SERVICE FOLLOWED BY TORAH CLUB.  HEBREW CLASS BEGINS AT 9:00 am.  

LET REMEMBER TO PRAY FOR MILLIE, PATRICIA, AMBER, LYNETTE AND CARLA EACH DAY AS THEY MINISTER IN NAIROBI KENYA! 

Blessing and Shalom!

Shabbat 12/1/2018

Shalom Mishpacha!

Can you believe we are in December already! Millie and I returned this week from our vacation in Europe and it was a wonderful trip! From Amsterdam to Germany and France and ending in Switzerland it was certainly full and beautiful as we cruised and bussed the Rhine River for our 43rd Anniversary!We are thankful to be home, although we are both dealing with jet lag and alot of catching up to do!


This Shabbat, December 1st, we will get our hearts ready for the festival of Hanukkah (Dedication) which begins on Sunday, December 2nd. It seems the longer I walk with The Lord the more I am impacted by not just the symbolic meaning but the prophetic reality of these times. Hanukkah is all about letting our light shine in the darkness by re-dedicating and purifying our own “temples” in a dark and hostile world. The days of the Maccabees and the Hellenistic Antiochus  Epiphanies are very similar to the secular day that we are living in 2018. Materialism, hedonism, idolatry, and selfishness are as prevalent today if not more than over 2000 years ago! I will be sharing about how we should live in these day as “lights in the darkness.”


THERE WILL BE A POTLUCK ONEG FOLLOWING THE SERVICE SO BRING A DISH TO SHARE AND STAY FOR FELLOWSHIP! (Hint, it’s totally appropriate to bring latkes and sufganiot or Jelly donuts!!)


We will be celebrating Hanukkah in various places this next week as we look forward to great fellowship and a lot of potato latkes!


*Sunday, December 2nd at 5pm we will be joining together with the Denver area Messianic community at Congregation Roeh Israel; 8556 E. Warren Ave. Denver, 80210. THIS WILL BE A POTLUCK, SO BRING A DISH! Also, bring your Hanukkiah! This is an awesome opportunity to join hands with other congregations in the city and work toward unity.


*Thursday, December 6th at 6pm we will be gathering at Russ and Siri Crider’s home, 22493 E. Maplewood Ln. Aurora,80015 for candle-lighting, food and great fellowship! Bring your Hanukkiah and either bread, fruit salad or jelly doughnuts to share. Soups will be provided.


*Friday, December 7th at 6pm we are all invited to the Busby home, 6908 W. Nova Dr. Littleton, 80128. Again, bring a dish and your Hanukkiah and and the kids and all your neighbors and let’s do Hanukkah right!


Just a reminder, this week’s Torah Club will be at the home of the Larsen’s at 3pm.


We look forward to seeing all of you this Shabbat! We have missed you very much!


Blessings and Shabbat Shalom!

Shabbat November 10, 2018

Shabbat Shalom!


The elections are over (thank God!) and our King is still on His throne! This Shabbat, November 10th, we will be continuing our study into Alignment by exploring “THE HEART OF ABRAHAM” and the covenant purposes of God for His family starting with the father of our Faith Family. Even as we have been seeing in our Torah studies, there is so much we can learn from this man Abraham and his wife Sara not to mention the legacy he left us through his interactions with Father God!


WE WILL HAVE OUR POT-BLESS ONEG FOLLOWING THE SERVICE SO BRING A DISH TO SHARE AND STAY FOR FELLOWSHIP!

We began our Biblical Hebrew class last Shabbat and it was fabulous! It begins at 9am in the fellowship room downstairs, and it’s not too late to get started! You can order your FIRST HEBREW PRIMER (3rd edition) on Amazon if you haven’t already.

Following our Oneg, at 3pm, we will have our Torah Club Study #6, “TOLDOT”. This has been a great time of study and discussion of the Parsha of the week.

Hanukkah is just around the corner! I know it’s hard to believe! We will celebrate the first night of candle-lighting together with the rest of the Messianic Jewish community on Sunday, December 2nd at Roeh Israel Congregation beginning with a potluck at 5pm! More information on this in the coming weeks!


Blessings and Shabbat Shalom!

Shabbat Nov 3, 2018

Shabbat Shalom!

Great news this weekend: you get to sleep an extra hour on SUNDAY as Daylight Savings ends so put your clocks back one hour on Saturday night! But before that, come and enjoy a wonderful Shabbat, November 3rd, and bask in His goodness and glory with the “Called Out Ones” of Yeshua!


This week I will be sharing a message on “The Ladder of Law and Grace” a common sense Biblical look at how to set priorities in this crazy world. There is certainly much confusion and misunderstanding in the Body of Messiah on these issues and hopefully this will help bring much needed clarification.


There will be a Pot-Bless Oneg following the service so bring a dish and hang around for fellowship and Hebraic dance.  Afterwards at 3:00 pm we begin our Torah Club. It has been a wonder time!

This Shabbat at 9am before the service, Or Chaim will be starting it’s first Biblical Hebrew class! Kent Brown will be facilitating the introduction into this study where you will learn how to read, write, and speak the language of the Bible. If you haven’t ordered the book yet, you can order it through Amazon. The book is titled THE FIRST HEBREW PRIMER, 3RD EDITION. Even if you don’t have the book yet, but are interested, come to the class at 9am!


Ladies...the 2nd Colorado Messianic Women’s Fellowship Event will be held this Sunday Nov 4th from 2 pm - 5pm at the Koelbel Library 5955 S Holly St

Littleton, CO  80121. We really encourage you to participate as a family of believers with other congregations from around Colorado.


Our 2019 Or Chaim Messianic calendars are here! They are beautiful, full of pictures of Jerusalem, and listing all the Feasts and special days for the next year, even until 2020! They are great for your home or office, and also wonderful to give as gifts!  They will be available at Shabbat for a suggested donation of just $10, so come and get them while they last!  We are also offering royal blue packable jackets with the Or Chaim Logo for $30 ea. Please help us promote our wonderful congregation with these items. We have sizes available and Millie will be taking orders this Shabbat.


Shabbat Shalom!

Shabbat 10/20/2018

Shalom Everyone!

This shabbat, October 20th @10:30am we will be hosting a dear friend, Alex Yalenga, from Zambia, Africa! Alex is the Messianic Rabbi of Zambia Messianic Fellowship reaching out to Muslims, Jews, and Animists with the good news of the Kingdom from a Jewish perspective. Did you know that Messianic Judaism is growing on the continent of Africa? He and his wife and 4 children have had an incredible impact on the continent of Africa, with an amazing testimony of faith, miracles, and God’s grace and goodness! Their ministry also operates a full-time orphanage that provides education and daily meals to students, as well as funds scholarships for high school. They also have a radio program that reaches remote parts of the country with the gospel. He is a dear friend of Or Chaim and we are honored to have him this week, as he will only be in the Denver area for a short time. This would be a great opportunity to invite family and friends and be challenged and encouraged about what God is doing around the world!


We want to bless Alex and his ministry with a love offering following the service! People often ask us “how can I be involved in making a difference in the world?” One of the most effective ways is to support those, like Alex and his family, who are impacting places for the Kingdom that we may never get the opportunity to visit. You will love this man’s heart! WE WILL HAVE A “POT-BLESS” ONEG FOLLOWING THE SERVICE, SO BRING A DISH AND ENJOY FELLOWSHIP, AND HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO MEET ALEX!


We look forward to seeing you this Shabbat!

Shabbat 10/13/2018

SHABBAT SHALOM!

A well known prophetic voice in the body of Christ recently said ‘we stand at the crossroads of history …war on the saints is escalating as nations heave in the throes of crises, birth pangs, and political correctness gone awry.” It so resonated in my spirit and confirmed that what God has put in my heart to teach lately is from Him! This Shabbat, October 13th, I will be sharing a message about what needs to take place for Yeshua’s return, as a continuation of how we as the bride are to prepare for this incredible climatic event. These are certainly not days to become complacent or to lose heart, but instead to press in to Him with hearts full of faith and hope! This is a very important message you need to hear, so we look forward to seeing you on Shabbat.


WE WILL HAVE A “POT-BLESS” FOLLOWING THE SERVICE, SO BRING A DISH TO SHARE AND STAY FOR WONDERFUL FELLOWSHIP!


Last week we “kicked off” our Torah Club and about 20 people (or more) participated! It was a wonderful time as we discussed God’s Word and heard a bit of everybody’s journey into their walk of faith. This Saturday, October 13th, we will meet at Larry and Joyce Larson home, 117 S.Rogers Way, Golden 80401 at 3pm. Their home is just a few minutes away from the congregation. We want to encourage you to have read the lesson so as to participate and engage in the lesson.


WANT TO LEARN BIBLICAL HEBREW? DO YOU WANT TO READ AND WRITE BIBLICAL HEBREW — AND EVEN BE ABLE TO READ FROM THE TORAH? WE WILL BE OFFERING A CLASS STARTING NOVEMBER 3RD, BEFORE OUR SERVICE, WHERE YOU WILL LEARN THE ALEPH/BET AND CONTINUE THROUGH SEVERAL LESSONS SO AS TO BE ABLE TO READ HEBREW SCRIPTURE! WE WILL BE USING THE FIRST HEBREW PRIMER, SO ORDER IT NOW! If you have any questions, please contact Kent Brown.


We look forward to seeing you this Shabbat!

Shabbat 10/6/2018

Shabbat Shalom!

Whew! What a week! Is it time for Shabbat? God is so incredibly good, let us come together and enjoy a restful peace with Him, after all that is what Shabbat is all about.


This week, October 6th I will be sharing a message on what “the Day of The Lord” will look like. As the Bride, how do we prepare ourselves for that day? These are exciting days we are living, they are also days to get into alignment with what He is doing on planet earth!


This week was Simchat Torah and to commemorate that special Day we will be bringing our “new” Torah (actually it’s about 400 years old!) into our congregation for the first time! How exciting is that! WE WILL HAVE A POT-BLESS AFTER SERVICE SO BRING A DISH AND STAY FOR FELLOWSHIP! It would be great if everyone would help with cleanup afterwards so we can begin our new class.


Our first TORAH CLUB will begin this Shabbat at 3pm in the fellowship room. It will be a wonderful time of learning and Midrash. We are called to be students of the word, and it is especially important in these perverse days.


Remember, our BIBLICAL HEBREW CLASS will be starting on the first Shabbat in November. Talk to Kent Brown and get your Hebrew Primer, and let’s start reading and speaking the language of the Bible!


Blessing and Shabbat Shalom!

What A wonderful Mo’adim (Appointed Times) we have been enjoying! From Yom Teruah and the sound of the Shofar summoning us to get ready for His return. To Yom Kippur, where we recognize the perfect atonement of Yeshua and corporately confess our sins so as to secure our names are written in the Book of Life. And, this week as we welcomed the beautiful festival of Succoth, gathering in flimsy booths, waving the etrog and lulav joyously anticipating the triumphant return of our king at the final harvest. It has been a time of great fellowship and re-focusing our attention on kingdom things! This Shabbat, September 29th, we will be looking at the end days and what it will look like at the time of Yeshua’s return, and how we as the Bride are to be prepared for that day. WE WILL BE HAVING A POT-BLESS (BETTER THAN POT-LUCK!) ONEG, SO BRING A DISH TO SHARE AND STAY FOR SOME GREAT FELLOWSHIP!

Shabbat 9/8/2018

Chag Sameach!

This phrase in Hebrew literally means “Happy Holidays”, a traditional greeting for Jewish people at this time of the year. This Sunday evening SEPTEMBER 9TH we come into a very significant time of the year as we celebrate YOM TERUAH (DAY OF THE BLOWING OF TRUMPETS) ALSO KNOWN AS ROSH HASHANAH and where we usher in the 10 Days of Awe leading up to YOM KIPPUR (DAY OF ATONEMENT). The Biblical fall feasts God’s Holy Convocations look forward to our Lord’s return to establish His glorious kingdom on Earth! The mournful wail of the shofar is a call to prepare for His return, by opening our hearts to get rid of anything that hinders His ways in our lives and come into right alignment to Him through repentance (T’Shuva). Come and join us this Sunday for a special Yom Teruah service at 7pm on the Mountain as we blow the shofar in anticipation of His soon return and recall His faithfulness to us by worshipping together and committing ourselves to embrace His righteous ways! We will be dipping apples into honey as a traditional way of looking forward to a “fruitful and sweet New year!


This Shabbat, September 8th, we will be having a special service as we welcome Ron of Spirit of Martyrdom ministries who have just recently returned from a special time in a region that has just in the last years opened up to the gospel of Yeshua! Hear powerful testimony of what our God is doing in a place that up until now has been one of the most hostile to evangelism and the Good News of the God’s Kingdom. We had an awesome time with them when they were with us last year and you don’t want to miss their passionate hearts! We will be taking a love offering for Ron and Nadia and their ministry at the conclusion of the service.


WE WILL HAVE A POTLUCK ONEG FOLLOWING THE SERVICE SO BRING A DISH TO SHARE AND ENJOY THE FELLOWSHIP WITH “MISHPACHA!’


I want to encourage all of you to be faithful in praying for Or Chaim Congregation as God has been adding to our numbers we sense a greater hunger to see breakthrough in lives in the areas of healing, intimacy with Yeshua, restoration of relationships, more kingdom authority in our daily walk, and victory over financial hindrances. Praying for one another is a privilege and indeed a calling we have from the Lord! God will show His power to a people who are on their knees crying out for more of His presence!


CHAG SAMEACH AND SHABBAT SHALOM!

There is so much authority and kingdom power in the mighty name of Yeshua! Do you believe this truth? I mean really, do you believe it??

Shabbat 8/18/2018

Shabbat Shalom!

Did you know that this month, Elul on the Hebrew calendar, is also known as the “month of the Shofar”? The blowing of the shofar reminds us of Moses’s ascent to Mt.Sinai at the beginning of this month to receive the two tablets, which was accompanied by the blasts of the shofar. This time of blowing of the shofar encourages us to search our hearts and prepare our selves for the triumphant return of our Messiah! As we approach the end of summer our focus turns toward the Fall Festivals of The Lord (the Mo’adim) beginning in just a few weeks with Yom Teruah (Rosh HaShana), the Days of Awe leading up to Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) and then the final ingathering of Succoth. In line with this, I will be sharing a timely message, this Shabbat August 18th on coming into alignment (plumb line) with our righteous Yeshua! With all of the political and cultural arguments about right and wrong, all the crazy name-calling and hate-filled tirades in the media and marketplace, it’s time to look at God’s Word and see how all of us have missed it! This is a series of messages you will not want to miss!


WE WILL HAVE A POTLUCK ONEG FOLLOWING OUR SERVICE, SO BRING A DISH TO SHARE AND ENJOY THE FELLOWSHIP! ALSO, THERE WILL BE MESSIANIC DANCE PRACTICE AFTER ONEG AS WE WORK ON DANCES FOR THE HIGH HOLIDAYS.


Here are the dates for the Fall Feasts that we will be celebrating at Or Chaim Congregation:

EREV YOM TERUAH (ROSH HASHANA)- SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 9TH@7PM AT THE CONGREGATION


EREV YOM KIPPUR (DAY OF ATONEMENT)- TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 18TH@7PM AT THE CONGREGATION

YOM KIPPUR BREAK-FAST- LOCATION TO BE ANNOUNCED-5:30PM


EREV SUCCOTH- 4:30 pm SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 23RD AT PATRICIA DELEON’S HOME, 10578 OURAY ST., REUNION, CO.80022 (chicken provided...bring a side dish)


THESE ARE INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT AND SIGNIFICANT KINGDOM DAYS FOR THE WHOLE MESSIANIC COMMUNITY! PUT THEM ON YOUR CALENDAR AND PLAN ON ATTENDING...YOU WILL BE BLESSED!

Shabbat 8/11/2018

Shabbat Shalom!

Here we are in the “dog days of summer” and I am still asking “what in the world does that mean?” Well, I just returned from walking my dogs and they said to me

With their eyes “it’s too hot to walk!” I guess it means that the dogs get to stay in the cool house during these days!

Anyway, we are getting ready to enter the most important days on the Biblical Kingdom Calendar with the Hebrew month of Elul beginning in a few days, followed by the Fall festivals as we set our gaze to the triumphant return of our Lord!


This Shabbat, August 11th@10:30am I will be starting a new series of teachings on the subject of ALIGNMENT. What does it mean and how do we align our spirit, soul, and body with this paradigm and how does it bring us into the “John 17 Echad" (unity) that we are called to live out. I am really excited about this and know that Or Chaim Congregation will be mightily blessed by this alignment we will be learning to walk in!


WE WILL HAVE A POTLUCK LUNCH FOLLOWING THE SERVICE SO BRING A DISH TO SHARE, AND ENJOY THE FELLOWSHIP!


Remember, those that want to read through and discuss the Torah portion of the week, will be meeting downstairs in the fellowship room starting at 9am. Also, several folks have shown an interest in meeting before the service for prayer. Devorah Schott will be leading a time of prayer in one of the children’s classrooms starting at 8:30am. This will be a great opportunity to invite the Ruach into every aspect of our services, and see our faithful Father meet so many needs as we also pray for this city, nation and Israel!
