Olympic Blog

Serving the Same Master

Written by Pastor Mark Kernan God certainly works in mysterious ways. When Colleen and I left the Olympic Peninsula for Stayton, Oregon in 1991, and moved our young family to Kodiak, Alaska in 1995 we had no idea that God would give us nearly 20 years of ministry at Berean Baptist Church only to call…

Baptism

Blog written by Richard Maxwell, Elder at OEFC. I’ve been asked to share on the subject of baptism so I’ll begin with my story. I have been immersed in a religious ceremony three times.  At age twelve I attended a class for several weeks in preparation for baptism.  That church taught that you were a…

And What Can I Say in Conclusion?

As I write my last blog for the OEFC web site and conclude my ministry, my heart is filled with gratitude. So, what can I say? God is working in and through the church we know as Olympic EFC. Together we have seen God’s love and faithfulness in answering prayer. Perhaps the most recent example…

Come Check Them Out…

The “THEM” are Pastor Mark Kernan, his wife Colleen, and son, Tyler, who are with us this week, thru Sunday, to candidate for our position of Senior Pastor.  We hope you have taken time to attend one of the planned events and meet them. The Pastor Search Team, Elders and Council of Ministers have all…

Fresh Start or Same Old

As the time of candidating a new pastor at our church draws near, it may be a good time to reflect on how we will relate to him as a pastor/leader, if he is called. It’s been 16 or so years since OEFC has had to adjust to a new Senior Pastor. Our church culture…

What Do We Do Now?

Here’s a question for us? What do we do now that we have a candidate for Senior Pastor coming in a few weeks? It might be a good to suggest a few answers for you… First and most important, pray. Pray for Candidate Mark Kernan and his family. Pray for God to guide as he…

We Want Him to Do What?

In preparation for the soon arrival of OEFC’s new Senior Pastor, the Elders have approved a Ministry Description to fit our church needs and expectations for this position and the man of God who will fill it. This guiding document will be sent to our candidate to help him have a clear understanding of what…

Age Has Its Perks

The Lord directed me to an Old Testament passage of Scripture in my devotions this week. As I opened the Sacred Text and read from Genesis 17, the Lord spoke to me and I wanted to share it with you. I’ve known for some time now that in God’s plan age has its benefits. Throughout…

Dads, Listen Up!

This weekend we celebrate Father’s Day. Father’s Day is different from Mother’s Day. It is my observation that Moms need and deserve all the recognition and love that we can give them. They are nurturers who never seem to get the attention and love they deserve.  Dads are different. They are looked up to for…

Who’s That?

Have you noticed lately the “guests” that have stopped by our church on Sunday morning? “Who’s that?” We don’t have lots of people waiting to come in our building to worship with us but God keeps sending us some almost every Sunday. As I write this I’m thinking of a young couple I met at…
