This will be our last in-person gathering for a while, but don’t worry, we’ll continue to worship with our primary small groups AKA our families. This week, we’ll be sending out all kinds of cool resources for you to use in worship and videoing another worship service.
We are working to improve the Audio feed for the coming weeks. Thank you for your patience as we all worship together.
After last week’s sermon looking at the first 100 years of Oakland’s history, Pastor Andrew had many of you asking to hear the rest of the story. To remember and revisit our history from the last 50 or so years. There have been some hard times that Oakland has faced, but through it all God has been with us and lead us as only He can. This second part of Oakland’s history is a story many members of Oakland lived through, and one that newer members should hear to get to know Oakland better.
The recording is a little soft, so you may need to turn up the sound on your listening device to be able to clearly here the message.
For Homecoming, Pastor Andrew journeyed back through the 150 year history of Oakland. This first sermon is a walk through of the start of Oakland through about the 1960’s. The recording is a little soft, so you might need to turn up the sound on your speakers to hear Pastor Andrew.
On Sunday we discussed how the gospel dissolves our anger and why human anger does not accomplish the righteousness of God. For those wanted to further explore the topic, this sermon by Timothy Keller is outstanding.
For the last 6 weeks, we asked, "Why Work?" Why work exists, why work is sacred, why work is broken, why work hurts, why work is redeemed, why work is redemptive?
We were guided by a book called, Every Good Endeavor by Timothy Keller. In the following talk, you'll here Timothy Keller explain 5 of the greatest implications for how the Gospel changes our work. It is really worth your 27 minutes, while you cook dinner or fold clothes.
1. “Faith gives you an inner ballast without which work could destroy you.”
2. “Faith gives you a concept of the dignity and worth of all work, even simple work, without which work could bore you.”
3. “Faith gives you a moral compass without which work could corrupt you.”
4. “Faith gives you a world and life view that shapes the character of your work, without which work could master and use you.”
