The Oak Ridge Mennonite Church

 

The Church of God in Christ, Mennonite is a group of Christian Believers who endeavor to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ and His apostles in all matters of faith and practice.  We believe in modesty and simplicity in our daily life and business practices.  Many of us work with our hands as farmers or tradesmen, just as Jesus was a humble carpenter.

 

We welcome you to come visit us and to let the Lord speak to your heart.  Our doors are open to everyone, regardless of where life has taken you thus far.  We have all made mistakes and fallen to Satan's tactics.  But through God's Redemption Plan and His Wonderful Grace, you can find Peace of Mind in a Troubled World.

 

We have two services every Sunday, the morning service begins at 10:45am and the evening service at 7:00pm.  Sunday School begins at 10:00am.  We extend a hearty invitation for you to join us.  May God bless you as you seek to do His will.

 

Gospel Literature

 

Do you have a longing to know more about what God can do for you?  We have many short, gospel tracts that may answer your questions or provide clarity on areas where you don't fully understand the Bible's teachings.  Here are a few of our tracts:

Much of our Gospel Literature is available online and there are many more titles which can be ordered via our Tract Order Form.

Listen to our services

 

We welcome you to join us in person for our Sunday worship service.  But if you are not able to make it, or feel more comfortable listening to our Worship Service, there are two ways you can do that, by phone or Internet audio stream.  The audio stream is the recommended method as it provides the highest quality listening experience.

 

Telephone Bridge Line  (314) 932-0992

 

Audio Stream

 

To listen by streaming audio, simply click the play button on the player to the right.  The MP3 stream is at 96kbps (kilobits per second) and will use 45MB (megabytes) of data for every hour of listening.  A typical 90 minute service uses 68MB.  The stream works over a broadband, LTE, 4G, or 3G cellular internet connection.  Dial up and slower DSL or satellite services are not capable of streaming our services.  Most smart phones can play the stream in a web browser by clicking the streaming link instead of using the media player.

GOD’S LOVING-KINDNESS

  While God’s loving-kindness is clearly evident to those who pause a moment and recognize it, many people are in the clutches of evil forces. War, violence, heartache, and death are prevalent in much of the world. But in these storms, God’s loving-kindness often shines through. We read of miracles experienced by those mired in hopeless situations. We hear of crying hearts reaching out to a welcoming Savior. These are expressions of God’s loving-kindness extended to mankind.

 

  Many of us enjoy lives that are sheltered from some of the evils that pervade much of the world. We have come to expect blessings and advantages that others only dream of. Unfortunately, when we suffer affliction, we are inclined to unhappiness and dissatisfaction. Our high expectations of life tend to obscure our vision of God’s loving-kindness.

 

  Lucifer was cast down to this earth, and it is his domain. Who can imagine what would happen if God—even for one moment—would withdraw His loving-kindness from this world? Indeed, His good influence is all around us. He gives us our children and provides us a means to care for them. He gives us the invigorating springtime each year. And in the deeper, heartfelt matters, He lifts our burdens. He provides wisdom when responsibilities are heavy and comforts us when tragedy claims loved ones. Behind the scenes He works miracles on our behalf that we may not know about. All of these are expressions of God’s loving-kindness.

 

  While God’s love is expressed to the world at large, those who have surrendered their lives to Him experience His kindness in a special measure. No one is more aware of God’s love than the one who walks close by His side. As we mature upon our Christian journey, we become more aware of our sinful inclinations and difficult natures. We see where we have been selfish and insensitive to others. Perhaps I see faults which have strained my marriage relationship, or I see some deficiencies in my child nurture. I stand humbled before God as I realize my selfishness. The mistakes I have made may have resulted in broken hearts, but as I confess my faults, God forgives me and gives grace for restoration. Truly, God’s loving-kindness is everlasting!

 

  God’s loving-kindness is not restricted to those who live a godly life. His loving-kindness can be observed in the stony heart that suddenly crumbles. It is His loving kindness that calls the prodigal back to the fold. God’s love causes even the atheist to reach for something beyond himself in a time of crisis.

 

  Christians who realize God’s loving-kindness and who are persuaded of His goodness live a thankful life. They are not deeply disturbed by the glitches and disappointments of life, because in the end “all things work together for good” (Rom. 8:28). They do not fret and worry for they are not oppressed by a constantly disapproving judge. They serve in God’s vineyard because they find their Master is kind and rewards them bountifully. Indeed, it is the heartfelt realization of God’s loving-kindness that opens the door to a truly rewarding Christian life. May we renew our awareness of God’s love toward us and be filled with thankfulness!
