We welcome you to worship, fellowship and learn together as we experience the presence of Jesus. It is our hope that you are able to connect with the God that loves you and experience the change that comes through growth.

Do you have kids?
We have awesome environments for them to learn about God on their level, babies through 6th grade. If you've got a fussy baby, there is a family room out the rear east door of the sanctuary with live feed of the service and access to a nursing room as well.

Is this your first time?
Everyone here had a first time at some point, and we're glad you're here with us. We would appreciate it if you filled out the guest card at this link: oronaz.org/new

The Season of Advent Worship Theme is “Between Two Worlds:” Advent means “coming.” In this season of God coming in Jesus, we will look back to the loving movement of God’s incarnation as Savior; turn our attention to the present company of the Holy Spirit; all the while, practicing the coming promise of New Creation. Using the five historical themes of Christ’s advent (hope, faith, joy love, peace) our worship services will contrastthe present worldly kingdom which we have deemed ourselves rulers over, alongside the established yet unfolding kingdom of God. Hope shines as light in the darkness as Emmanuel “God with us” chooses a seat next to us instead of the heavenly realms. This reality brings the heart of God into focus as a relentless love that steps into our crumbling kingdoms, to offer a whole new way to live and breathe and have our being.

LOVE: Disguised as Everything
Travis Marshall
December 22, 2019
Creation (both initial and ongoing), is God's way of disguising LOVE as everything. In birth, we are reminded that Love is all around - budding, overflowing, flourishing - never growing old, running empty, falling seedless or stuck hopeless. God is Love and endures forever!
Collective Benediction:
For our benediction today we need everyone’s help! We are going to close our time together with an ancient tradition in the church— the O’ Antiphons. To find your part use the day of the month on which your birthday falls. Use that numeric calendar day to find your part below. *Once you chime in please continue, in unison, each line with everyone.

Leader: O’ Wisdom,
Ladies 1st-10th: O’ Lord and Ruler,
Men 1st-10th: O’ Root of Jesse
Ladies 11th - 20th: O’ Key of David
Men 11th - 20th: O’ Rising Sun
Ladies 21st - 31st: O’ King of the Nations
