Onyx House Gathering

College Age

Eugene Faith Center’s College-Age Group meets at The Onyx House, which is located right next to the University of Oregon campus at 1850 Onyx Street. We meet at 7:30 p.m. on Friday nights (during the summer, we meet at 8:00 p.m. on Tuesdays). If you are between the ages of 18-25, we would love to have you join us.

Every week when we gather, we do five essential things:

Worship - Taking time to tell God how wonderful He is. We do this through music, our words, our attitudes of reverence, thanksgiving and celebration.

Prayer - Talking to God in a down-to-earth way. We talk to Him remembering that He is our Father, He loves us and He cares about every facet of human life.

Bible Study – Seeing what the Bible has to say about who God is and who we are. Even though Jesus’ message is an ancient one, He still speaks to our lives today. God has things he wants us to learn; we want to give Him the opportunity to teach us.

Communion – Remembering and celebrating Christ’s sacrifice on the cross together as a community is a powerful way to refocus our hearts and minds.

Fellowship - Being with people. It is so good to encourage each other and enjoy each other’s presence.

Living at Onyx

In addition to hosting a weekly worship service, the Onyx House provides a 60-person residential community where students can accomplish their academic and career goals while being involved in campus ministry. The house is run, operated and maintained by Eugene Faith Center as an extension of the church’s college-age ministry.

Overview of Church Life

What is the purpose and what are the goals of Eugene Faith Center?

In light of the context in which we find ourselves and the urgings of the Spirit we are feeling in this time (what the Spirit is saying to the churches), what is the purpose and what are the goals of Eugene Faith Center? Why does Eugene Faith Center exist and what is it trying to do?

This scripture from Matthew embodies what Eugene Faith Center is all about…Relationship with God, ourselves and others.

But when the Pharisees heard that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees they gathered together. Then one of them, a lawyer, asked him a question, testing him: “Rabbi, what is the great commandment in the Law?”

Jesus said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your mind”. This is the first and greatest commandment and the second is life it: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself”. On these two commandments hang all the Law and the prophets. - Matthew 22:34-40

Nurture

For nurture, vision and empowerment we look primarily to the Christian scriptures, but also to the ongoing insights of the churches, our reason and our experience, all through the Spirit.

But why and for what purpose? To what is that vision, nurture and empowerment driving us?

Relationship

Taking our cue from Jesus we think the overarching purpose of the Scriptures, the Spirit inspired insights of the ongoing life of the churches, our reason and experience is to help us learn to love God, ourselves, one another and all other realms of the Creation.

Mission

But is that it? Is discovering, enjoying, caring for and developing loving relationship with God, ourselves, one another and all other created realms an end in itself?

No. We are empowered and enabled to discover, enjoy, care for and develop these relationships so that we can partner with God, one another and all other created realms to see God’s dream, God’s kingdom come in greater and fuller ways.

Practices of the church

If nurture, relationship and mission are the goals of the church, what activities do we engage in to facilitate our achieving of those goals?

We use the snapshot of early church life depicted in Acts 2:37-47 as a model for the shared life and ministry of our church:

After hearing Peter tell them that Jesus, who they had crucified was actually a true prophet anointed by the Spirit, that he had been raised from the dead and that God had made him to be both Lord and messiah, the people asked Peter how they should respond, to which Peter answered,

“Repent, and be baptized, every one of you in the name of Jesus for the forgiveness of sins, and you too will receive the Holy Spirit. For this promise of receiving this same Spirit in this same special way is for you too, and for your children. In fact, it’s for every person, no matter how far off they are, as many as the Lord our God will call.” And with many other words Peter continued to encourage them to save themselves from the crookedness of their lives.

And so, about 3,000 of them were baptized. And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, to fellowship and to the breaking of bread and the prayers. Everyone was in awe and many wonders and signs were done through the hands of the apostles.

And those who believed were together and had all things in common. And those who had possessions sold them and distributed to each person as they had need. So, continuing daily in the Temple and house to house, they ate heir food with gladness and simplicity of heart, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added daily to the gathering those who were being saved.” - Acts 2: 37-47

Even though this little snapshot of early church life is nearly 2,000 years old we find it stills works well as a model for our church, indicating the primary devotions and activities which can facilitate our development and the development of the rule of God on earth. And these are the powerful, enriching and transformational activities to which we devote our congregational life and ministry:

Listening: Becoming aware of good messages (The Gospel).

According to the Christian scriptures and Christian Tradition, Creation takes place through the Word and the Spirit. And so does New Creation. The goodness and power of our personal experience begins with the messages we are enabled to receive.

Those messages come to us through all kinds of ways, and they are sensed and apprehended in imperfect ways. But somehow, we know, through the Spirit, that we are being spoken to and the power of that word has the capacity to generate new life.

Repentance: An openness and willingness to learn, to change and to grow.

Adopting a posture of ongoing repentance is so powerful. If we think we know it all, not even God can help us! But if we are open to learning, growing and making changes then it’s possible for us to experience greater freedom, health, enrichment and goodness of all kinds.

Water Baptism: Dying to old ways of being and living and being raised through the Spirit into new ones.

Water baptism is the traditional way people have signified their intention to follow Jesus and Jesus’ Way. The washing of water signifies complete forgiveness and cleansing. Being lowered into the water signifies a dying to old ways of being and living; being raised up out of the water signifies “resurrection” by the Spirit into new ones. And this of course becomes a dynamic we go on to practice in our lives over and over again, in deeper and deeper ways as we live out our baptism.

Receiving the Holy Spirit: Intentionally receiving the Spirit in a special way.

Though God’s Spirit is present and active everywhere in all the creation, in the New Testament and then throughout the history of the Christian churches, in addition to adopting a posture of repentance and becoming baptized in water believers would also have hands laid on them to actively and personally “receive” the Spirit. This personal appropriation of the Spirit empowers us to experience God’s life and our own life in deeper and richer ways.

Community Life: Sharing life with one another.

Solitude is a gift; loneliness is difficult; but ongoing isolation is unhealthy. Therefore these early disciples made sure to share their lives with one another in ways that helped them all to find greater enjoyment and fulfillment.

The Heart and Spirit of the Church

The great Christian writer, C.S. Lewis once said, “True Christianity is like a good infection: You catch it and then you become contagious.” And I think there’s a lot of truth to that.

It’s not just what you do, but why and how you do it that makes a difference. It’s the heart and it’s the Spirit.

And so, while we want to use these activities to pursue these goals, above all we want our vision and activities to be bathed in a heart and spirit of welcome and acceptance, a deep respect for God and one another, kindness, honesty, discipline and, above all love.

Beyond all of what we might be aware of or be capable of understanding, this is the environment within which miracles can take place, miracles that can take us beyond the limits of our own visions and understandings.

Bible Course

This course is a do-it-yourself, online adaptation of one I originally offered in our church in 1991. It consists of:

A. Reading Guides and Exercises
B. Skeletal Discussion Notes
C. Additional Helps and Charts

The Reading Guide and Exercises are to be used in conjunction with an Atlas and a Bible Dictionary, or help like Halley’s Bible Handbook. Study Bibles tend to be too doctrinal, although the Oxford Study Bible (RSV) is good and usually available used at Smith Family Bookstore.

Some suggestions for Bible Dictionaries include:

Halley’s (really a little handbook)
Smith’s Bible Dictionary
New Bible Dictionary
Harper’s Bible
Dictionary
Others are multi-volume

The materials are designed to help you read through the Bible and gain a basic knowledge of the Bible by thoughtfully reading it for yourself.

I hope it’s a blessing.

Welcome Letter

A note from Pastor Steve

Steve and Tana Overman
Steve and Tana Overman

I’m so happy you stopped by the website and hope you’ll find something interesting or helpful here. And I would love it if you wanted to come and visit the church sometime. Ever since I’ve been a part of our church I’ve heard people say, “It’s all about relationship.” So here at the church it’s been our desire to be a place where we can all find nurture and empowerment that can help us connect with God and one another in more healthy and enjoyable ways. Then, together with God and one another we can pray and work to see God’s kingdom come in greater and richer ways here on earth.

To help us grow toward those ends we gather together on the weekend to share in worship, prayer, study and a modest amount of “family business.” Throughout the week we share life together, learning, playing and serving together in ways that hopefully can be a true blessing to ourselves and our world.

If you interested in getting a greater sense of the life of the church you can browse through this website, come visit a worship service or leave us a note at info@faithcenter.net.
