If you’ve been following our blog from the beginning of this God amazing adventure we call Oasis-Church-NJ.com, you are probably rejoicing with us about what He has done over the last year and a half. One friend who recently visited Oasis for the first time had this to say: “You spoke about starting a church for years, but I never thought it would ever happen. Boy was I wrong!” Over and over again, the Lord keeps reminding me of this: Never ever (put another ever in there!) underestimate the power of vision and the fact that our God is in the business of using ordinary people (translation: flawed, weak misfits by the world’s standards) to do extraordinary crazy things for Him.
As I stood up in front of all the folks who showed up for our first Christmas Eve as a new and growing church family, I was so overwhelmed with joy thinking about how God honors faith-filled risking taking for the Kingdom. Looking out at them with my IPhone, I asked them if I could take a picture! They said yes, but I mean, what were they gonna say on Christmas Eve? LOL. BTW, I’ll be putting up pictures soon, but in between that time I have video of the service for those who were not able to be there, or are curious about how we do a message at OC:
Over all, I guess the purpose of this blog entry is to remind myself and others that God honors vision and faith, and to let newcomers on this site know that Oasis-Church-NJ.com is a new casual, contemporary Christian church that meets Sundays at 11am at 1180 Spruce Dr in Mountainside, and during the the week in Connect Groups in various locations around NJ. So if any of you out there are yearning for more of God, meaning and purpose in life, come check us out. At Oasis you will enjoy a fun laid back setting, great music and relevant messages you can use in real life and meeting and connecting with new friends.
