Happy Birthday to Us!

Posted by Curt on October 15, 2014

We are celebrating our 4th Birthday this Sunday.  Isn’t that crazy?   Four years ago a group of strangers met together as a church for the first time.   It’s incredible to think about all the things that have happened since then, but I guess the coolest thing is this – those strangers have become a family.   We truly love you guys, and it has been a privilege to be a part of your lives for the past 1,460 days or so.

So we thought we should have a little celebration this weekend.  Folks are apparently baking cakes and yummy desserts in honor of this occasion, and we would love for you to join us for the party!   We will continue our Jesus is Better series – (for those of you who weren’t with us Sunday, we have moved into the book of Acts) and we will stay for a while afterward for fun & desserts.   How much fun and how many desserts?  That depends on you guys.   Your challenge is to bring lots of delicious confections.  I’m thinking if you guys bring enough desserts, the fun will take care of itself.

Seeing as this nicely coincides with the Ole Miss Homecoming game (BTW – How bout them Rebels??!?!!), I hope that some of you relocated Life people might be willing to stick around until Sunday afternoon.  We always love to catch up with you guys!   If you haven’t been able to be a part of our gatherings for a while, this would be a great night to reconnect!    Also – it’s always easier to invite people to church when you know there will be cake.  That’s scientific fact.

Can’t wait to celebrate 4 awesome years with you guys.

Friday thoughts

Posted by Curt on August 29, 2014

Hey everybody!  Hope this week is going well for all of you.

Our new series has started.  I know this doesn’t sound revolutionary, but we are taking a few weeks to simply talk about Jesus.   We want to focus on how great He is, with the hope that every one of us will discover that Jesus is Better than we ever imagined.   I hope you’ll be a part of our Sunday gatherings, and if you missed this weekend, hop on over to our podcast page so you can get up to speed.

As a part of this series, we are challenging everyone in our church to read through the book of John together.   We are reading one chapter a day, while intentionally asking God to reveal Himself to us through the Word.  Even if you missed the first few days, we would love for you to join us on this journey.  I’ll be tweeting out a reminder and a link each day, so make sure you are following @thelifeoxford on twitter if you want to be a part of this challenge.

Finally, we want to invite all of you to join us for our Fellowship Night after church this Sunday.   Bring some food that you can share, invite some hungry friends, and stick around after church to play games, eat, and build relationships.   These nights always result in incredible conversations and wonderful memories, so I hope you’ll be there Sunday!

We love you guys, and we are praying that every one of you sees our incredible Savior more clearly this week.
