  • Sabbatical

    Open Bible Church family graciously voted to grant Pastor Larry and Becky a six-week sabbatical (Feb. 18 - March 31, 2018) which will include a 2 week trip to Israel, Jordan, and Egypt. The cost of the sabbatical ($10,000.00) will be covered by offerings with the general fund covering any deficit. If you would like to contribute, please designate  your gift "Sabbatical" and place it in the offering plate during our regular offering. Please be in prayer that God would provide the right interim pastor for our church family during the Starett's absence.


    Wednesday, December 13. Please pray that our youth ministry grows.


    Next home Bible study is scheduled for Thursday, December 14, at 6:30. Join us at the Evans home for fellowship and potluck dinner.
