Last week the Lord spoke very clearly “He didn’t bring you this far to leave you alone!” We had a wonderful time of ministry to some in our Mishpacha who are struggling with life-threatening illnesses; a time of speaking words of life, healing, and blessing. Adonai Tzevaot (Lord of Hosts) is going before us, doing battle!
This Shabbat, February 10th @10:30am, we will continue in our journey through Rav Shaul’s (Paul’s) letter to the Romans, as we finish chapter 9. We will explore God’s Sovereignty, and man’s free choice, a concept many of us struggle with.
We will have a potluck oneg following the service, so please bring a dish to share and stay for the fellowship!
Also, there will be Torah midrash before and after the service. BECAUSE GATEWAY ON MT. ZION WILL BE HAVING A SEMINAR, WE WILL NEED TO LEAVE THE CHURCH BY 3PM!
Some important events coming up that you need to be aware of: The feast of Purim begins on the evening of Wednesday, February 28th, and we will celebrate it on Shabbat, March 3rd, so come dressed as your favorite character from this story, bring your “noisemakers” to drown out Haman’s nasty name, and get ready to enjoy “Hamantashen”! Great time to bring the kids and the grandkids to enjoy this amazing story of deliverance.
On March 10th, we will have some special guests from the Jewish National Fund (JNF), to share with us some of the important projects they are spearheading in Israel. Boaz Meir, Director of the Mountain States region of JNF, along with Dr.Hanni Arnon, who is an educator and agricultural expert, will be sharing with us some exciting and innovative projects they are developing in the Arava region of Israel. Also, it will be a great opportunity to support the land of Israel in practical ways, by blessing them financially! As you know, Or Chaim Congregation, has committed to supporting what God is doing in Israel, with our finances as well as in practical “hands on” ways, such as serving holocaust survivors. This meeting will take place during our Oneg, at 1pm, downstairs in the fellowship room. PLEASE INVITE OTHERS WHO MAY BE INTERESTED IN PARTNERING WITH THE JNF TO KEEP ISRAEL ON THE CUTTING EDGE OF TECHNOLOGY, AGRICULTURE, AND MEDICAL BREAKTHROUGHS.
Don’t forget that passover is coming on March 30-31st! On Erev Pesach, Friday the 30th, we will have small intimate Seder gatherings in homes. On Shabbat the 31st, we will have a community Seder gathering at Aurora Realtors Assn., from 4-8pm. Get your tickets now for the community event! Enjoy a wonderful Seder meal , music and Messianic dance, as well as a delicious catered dinner for only $30 for adults, and $15 for children under12. You can purchase tickets on our website.
