Operation Christmas Child
Lookingglass Community Church participates in a mission project through Samaritan's Purse year around. The project helps kids around the world in areas less fortunate (ages for Boys and Girls are: 2-4, 5-9 and 10-14). If you would like to volunteer and take a part in our year around project to 1) contribute gift items to fill shoe boxes; standard size or small plastic container, 2) donate designated dollar amounts towards postage costs; write “For OCC” on your envelope, or 3) help this year in October to pack boxes to get them ready to ship, please see Carolyn (Project Leader), or contact the church office (541) 679-7282 to leave a message. You can pick up an items list in the foyer on Sundays, or go to our website and click on 'site index' and 'category' for some gift suggestions that we have listed by months and items. Again, if you can't or don't like to shop, then volunteer to give monthly donations, or help pack shoe boxes to ship.
The relation of the OT law to the Christian life is a subject that occupies the time of scholars to no end. It is safe to say that most, if not all, involved in the discussion love the Lord and desires for His church to be as He intends it. Unfortunately the writers of the New Testament did not address, in a systematic manner, the issue of how the law of the Old Testament in its entirety should be treated. Some sections of the New Testament obviously speak to reality that the new covenant supersedes the old covenant (Hebrews). But the subject is not treated in a way that clearly finalizes the debate. Perhaps this is so because of the distance to the original world of discourse. In any event, the difficulties encountered do not alleviate the responsibility to “correctly handle the word of truth” (2 Tim. 2:1515 Give diligence to present thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, handling aright the word of truth. ). The fact is that Scripture teaches that in its entirety it is profitable (1 Tim. 3:1616 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness; He who was manifested in the flesh, Justified in the spirit, Seen of angels, Preached among the nations, Believed on in the world, Received up in glory. ) and it serves to warn Christians on how to live (1 Cor. 10:66 Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted. , 11). This would seem to include the portions of the old covenant that are now, under the new covenant, considered obsolete (Heb. 8:1313 In that he saith, A new covenant he hath made the first old. But that which is becoming old and waxeth aged is nigh unto vanishing away. ).
