About Me

My photo

Life is journey!  Mine has been in process for nearly 50 years!  In just a few months I'll mark this milestone birthday.  Several years ago I set a go to enter this new decade of my life in better shape than I entered my 40's.  However, just over a year ago I had surgery to remove a tumor from the T9 region of my spine.  With 6 months of reduced mobility prior to diagnosis and months of rehab following the surgery, I lost all I had gained and perhaps more.

I'm now living in Southern California and enjoying a life near the beach.  Each day I'm running or biking more!  So, with only a few months to go, I'm determined to still see this goal become a reality!

Vision 2010 - Don't Miss This Sunday & Next!

Re:Imagine - Vision 2010

I've never been more excited about what God is doing at Oasis Life Church. Over the past few months the vision of Oasis has been clarified and this weekend we begin the presentation of Vision 2010.

Don't miss Sunday Jan 10th and Sunday Jan 17th at either the 8:30 or 10:30 AM service as we roll out the fresh, updated vision and mission of Oasis Life Church. It is simple, obvious and strategic! God is on the move and we invite you to be a part of it!

And - there is a BIG announcement on Sunday January 10th that you do not want to miss!

See you there - Pastor Scott

Christmas Eve 2009 is upon us

Christmas Eve service begins in just under 3 hours! 2009 has come and gone so quickly! For many perhaps it has not been quickly enough. Suffice it to say, 2009 has been a hard year in many ways. We see so much pain in the financial situation of families, the health of relationships and uncertainty with jobs & more.

However crazy Christmas may seem when it comes to commitments & obligations....I encourage you to stop, if even for a short while. Stop and contemplate why we celebrate this holiday. Has the birth of Jesus made a difference in the way that you live your life? If so, stop and thank Him that he cared enough to enter our world, live a perfect life & give it away unselfishly so that we could live. Thank Him for the opportunity He has given us to be in relationship with the Father. He says, "If you know me, you have come to know my Father in heaven."

Tonight - we celebrate "The Savior of Christmas". It is about hope. It is about life. It is about our lives being changed because of this one event in history.

Join us at Oasis Life Church, 19756 N. John Wayne Pkwy, Suite 108 at 6PM tonight for a celebration of dance, worship, Christmas carols and an interactive message including adults & children. The service is just one hour long and there is childcare for 0-5 yrs old. Refreshments will be served and the service will end with a candlelight ceremony with the singing of "Silent Night".

Merry Christmas!
With Love - Pastor Scott

"At the Kids Movies" is coming back to Oasis!

Last summer one of our most popular series was "At the Kids Movies". It was July, gas was $4 a gallon, it was 100 degrees plus and the popcorn was free!

Well - we're bringing it back for the summer of 2009. Gas is almost $3 a gallon, it's hot and once again the popcorn is free.

Starting July 12th and running until August 2nd. In the heat of an AZ summer, a cool, dark theater is just the place for a family to retreat. For a few hours we get lost in the action, excitement and the thrill of what Hollywood has produced. But could these movies point to truth in our lives? Join us as we apply Scripture to the life lessons "At the Kids Movies"

Just as last year - the first weeks movie will be a surprise and then the next week's movie will only be revealed at the end of the service! Showings are each Sunday at 8:30 or 10:30 AM. You'll not want to miss a week!
