Searching for a new church home can become challenging.  To help you at this point in your search, we want to let you know a little about ourselves.
 

 

We exist because Jesus said…

“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,  teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.“   (Matthew 28.19-20)

We hold high God’s Word as the sole authority in all matters of life.

“All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.” (II Timothy 3:16 – 17)

We want you to know a little about us…

First of all we ascribe to the Baptist Faith and Message.  We are a small church with a big heart.  

Bro. George Riek is our Pastor.

 

Our Worship Ministry strives to accomplish what every church should: To lead the people of God to a place where they experience genuine worship through the Holy Spirit. Our services are a blended style of worship, praising our God with songs from both the past and the present.  Bro. Kevin Wade is our Worship Minister.

 

Our Student Ministries are all about growing stronger in Christ and deepening our relationship with him. We also have a lot of fun while doing it! Ultimately our goal is to live like Jesus in such a way that He is seen within us on a daily basis. We want to have a hunger for God’s word and instill his word within our hearts. We want to be bold for Christ not in just how we talk, but also in how we act, making a difference in our homes, schools, and churches. The OBC Student Ministry is currently headed by Mrs. Brenda & Bro. Harold Cochran.  We have many activities throughout the year.  Youth Camp, various fund raisers, service activities in and around our community.  We love the Lord and sharing His love with everyone around us. 

 

Our Children’s Ministry is ready for your child to join in the excitement! The children’s department is geared to present God’s word to the children in a way they can understand and grow in their relationship with the Lord. Our goal is to partner with parents to make sure each child is growing spiritually and then equipped to be a light in their communities even at a young age. The OBC Children’s Ministry is currently headed by Mrs. Brenda Kruze and a dedicated staff of teachers who have a passion for reaching children for Christ. We have many activities throughout the year.  Boys Camp and Girls Camp, various fund raisers, service activities in and around our community.
 
We also have very active Food Pantry and Clothes Closet Ministries.  If you visit us on any Thursday, do not be surprised if you hear laughter, for it truly is a fun working environment. Every week people tell us what a great thing this church is doing and how much they appreciate what we do and the way they are treated. I think that is what this ministry is about – whether it is getting food, clothing, or just having someone listen. We want people to feel better after coming here.
 
 

Sunday Bible Study meets at 9:30AM followed at 10:45AM for morning worship. 

Sunday evening we meet at 6PM. 

Wednesday we have prayer and Bible Study at 6:30PM.

Our desire at Orchard Baptist is to reach out to our community and the world with the love of our Lord Jesus.  We hope that God spoke to your heart and that you will choose to worship Jesus with us in our next service.
 

We are located about 1 1/2 miles North of The Grounds (formerly the Greater Gulf State Fair) at 6960 Overlook Rd (where Overlook Road, Howells Ferry Road, and Cody Road meet).
