From The Pastor’s Pen

 
   I have been recently reflecting on the condition of our world.  It seems to me that people are very distraught over just about everything.  Every day there are so many conflicting stories about our new president and his cabinet.  Political arguments seem to headline every  type of social media known to man.  Ethnic divide seems to be growing larger every day.  In other words, this world is messed up.  
 
   News flash! It has been messed up since the fall of man!  The biggest difference is that there are now social media outlets that let every person that has an opinion post it world wide.  People are spending a majority of their day plugged into some form of social media or news outlet.  The media, that used to report on things that were actually news, are just as caught up in the storm of social media as the rest of the world.  People believe that anything they read on social media must be true, especially if it is reported on by the actual news media. Unfortunately, that is not the case. 
 
   So, are you looking for actual truth?  Something that is solid and has been proven throughout time?  Then unplug from social media and plug into God’s word.  That is right, the Bible! The book that has withstood the test of time and remains the greatest word every written.  God’s word is inspiring, comforting, and also convicting, all at the same time.  Don’t take my word for it! Read it for yourself and then join together with others who are also reading His word.  Yep, the largest book club ever assembled, which we call the Church.  We discover together what God has said in His word and talk about how to apply it to our lives.  I hope to see you there this Sunday.
 
God Bless You,

Merry Christmas!!

I love this time of year when we purposefully turn our attention to the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ.  I know that it is such a busy time for everyone and you can’t do everything, but please don’t neglect the real reason that we are celebrating in the first place.  We are living in a crazy world where so many will say that Jesus is a myth made up for the weak minded.  I would argue that history as well as scripture shows that Jesus is real.  I pray that during this Christmas season you choose to celebrate the birth of Christ because God so loved the world that He sent His Son into the world to save it.  Jesus is the Way the Truth and the Life and no man may enter into heaven except through a relationship with Jesus. If you are searching for answers or just looking for a group of believers to worship with come visit with us.  I hope to see you on Sunday.
 
God Bless You, Merry Christmas!

Children’s Christmas Program

 st-peter-lutheran-church-gathered-to-grow-sent-to-serve-za11m5-clipart
The OBC Children’s Department will be presenting their Christmas Program on the evening of Sunday the 18th of December.


Student Movie Night

The movie Believe begins at 3:40 Saturday afternoon.  We will leave the church at 2:40 OR you can meet us at Wynnsong at 3.00.
 
According to the theatre Web page, the cost is $9.63 for your ticket. I will buy the popcorn, but you are on your own for anything else.    
 
Please let me know if you are going and where you will meet us.  
 
Right after the movie (about 5.45)  we will head to Moffett Road Baptist Church for the Bethlehem Experience.  Looking forward to seeing your smiling faces!

The most important thing I want you to know about Orchard Baptist Church is that we are here to serve the Lord.  It is our desire to see all people come to Christ that none would perish.  In this crazy mixed up world that we live in right now people are so confused they do not know which way to turn.  Evil is so prevalent that many people are calling evil good because they have been told by so many that it is good.  One thing I know for sure and that is the only hope that we have in this world is Jesus Christ.  In the ever changing world views and opinions He is the constant.  God so loved the world that He sent His Son into the world to save it.  Jesus is the Way the Truth and the Life and no man may enter into heaven except through a relationship with Jesus. If you are searching for answers or just looking for a group of believers to worship with come visit with us.  I hope to see you on Sunday.
 
God Bless You!
