CORF UPDATE #41 | DECEMBER 24

Merry Christmas CORF Family! Jesus is here with us, waiting with us, walking with us, dwelling with us.

“Jesus Is Here,” Luke 1:26-38

We cannot deny what this year has been and still continues to be. Pandemic, quarantine, in some countries actual lockdown, death that some try to argue is small in percentage points, but percentage points cannot comfort the grieving and they do not tell the story of how each loss affects us all. We have experienced...

What a promise to hold onto so dearly! Yes, things may be crazy and seem out of control to us, but they are never out of control for the Lord. He is always in control and whatever he does, he does it for his glory and our good. As you prepare for our communion service...

In this week’s sermon, our guest speaker David Cohen shares his testimony on how he, a Jewish young man, came to Christ and how the Lord has been leading him from that point on until now.

CORF UPDATE #39 | DECEMBER 11

“Be Salty,” Matthew 5:13-16 | Amanda Mackie

We love talking about being the salt and being the light, but tonight I want to dig a little bit deeper and to really look at what it means for us and what it means for the world around us. Growing up I was not much of a risk taker; I liked to play it...

CORF UPDATE #38 | DECEMBER 04

“For the redemption of their souls is costly.” Psalms 49:8 (NKJV) This is not your typical Christmas verse and yet it is right on point. The coming of Jesus, the King who lives forever, was for this reason, namely to bring redemption to our souls in a very costly way. The laying down of his...

Revelation Bible Study: Wednesday, December 2nd

What if the only thing standing between faith and anxiety is our willingness to see things differently? The Bible is filled with things that appear to be dichotomies to us, light in darkness, death from life, calm in chaos. We tend to believe that one of those things needs to be removed so that the...

“Run Toward the New Life,” John 19: 38-20:18

Two weeks ago, we talked about the death of Jesus. And to the naked eye, Jesus’ death was the outcome of arrogant and jealous religious leaders, a weak politician and a broken system. Without knowing who Jesus was, how Jesus lived and the things Jesus said, his story might just be one of more injustice....
