Sermon for Sunday June 21, 2009
“In Over Your Head”
When we make a step of faith, God places us in situations that bigger than our human capacity. In these moments, we can feel overwhelmed, fearful, and question our decision. Rahab was certainly in over her head, but God gave her what she needed to complete her assignment.

So I’m laughing right now at the title of the sermon for Sunday, and realizing this is the reason for yet another short blog entry. Three letters: VBS! This is one of my favorite weeks of the year, yet definitely an overwhelming one. The really cool thing is that our VBS theme is on Faith, and not being afraid because God is with us….sound familiar? It should as this is pretty much the theme for our series on Rahab. Our kids will be singing at the opening of services to kick us off, and introduce the theme for the day. The rest of our music deals a lot with the subject of faith, and trusting God to take care of us even when we don’t understand how or why.
This week will also be a little sad for us here at Oasis as we say goodbye to a family that has been with us since the beginning. John and Christina Anderson; as you probably already know, are moving to Omaha for John’s job. The Andersons have been a big part of the Oasis family, and where the first members of the Oasis Worship Team when we began in 2002. We really appreciate their years of service, and wish them well in this new chapter of life. This will be their final service with us on Sunday, so be sure to take time to encourage them as they make this big move.
