Welcome 

Thank you for visiting our website!

Welcome Home!  We've been waiting for you!  It's true, because we believe that every person who comes into the circle of this special fellowship was sent by God Himself.  It's not by accident that you have visited our website.  So, above all else we want to express Christ's love to you with genuine, heartfelt warmth.  We're eager to know you, and we're excited to share with you the marvelous ways God is working in our church.

If you visit us, it won't take long for you to discover that this is truly a family, rich in the relationships that matter most.  Growing together, we worship, we serve, we laugh, we cry, we learn, and we reach out to our world with life-transforming truth.  We reach out to you, as well.  Our doors are open. Our hearts are open, too.  If you've been thinking, praying, searching, and hoping for a place to belong, we say again - Welcome Home!

The Exodus Tour from Egypt, Jordan, and Israel

Sunday, April 8th - 6:00 p.m.    (A note from Pastor Larry and Becky) - OBC has made an incredible investment in giving us a sabbatical. Having left weary and drained, God filled our hearts to the brim as we withdrew, wandered, and worshiped over these past six weeks. The trip to the Holy Land was far beyond all expectations and has forever changed our perspective and refreshed our faith. Please join us next Sunday night, April 8 at 6:00 p.m. for our picture presentation of The Exodus Tour from Egypt, Jordan, and Israel.  It truly was 11The Trip of a Lifetime"!
