Verse of the Day Minimize

“But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, "Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.” (Matthew 1:20-21)  listen to chapter  (Read by Max McLean.

Blended Music Worship Services: Sundays at 10:00am & Wednesdays at 6:30pm

We hope you'll join us, as we worship our Lord and Savior Sunday mornings at 10:00am.  Hear dynamic preaching from our Pastor - David Esley...we are so blessed! Our music style is a comfortable blend of traditional favorites and contemporary Christian music.  We're sure you'll feel a warm presence among very friendly people.  We know God created the church, Jesus died for the church, and the church is God's tool for revealing the mystery of salvation and furthering His Kingdom.  With that in mind, we seek not to see how we can be "blessed" each Sunday when we come...but what we can do to bless and honor God through worship, service, love and obedience.  It is our prayer you'll realize the necessity of the church for salvation, and you'll give us a try!

Backpacks of Hope
Every week, a team of dedicated OBC individuals collects, packs and delivers Backpacks of Hope to school children in our area. Surprisingly, hundreds of kids go hungry after they leave school. Once the free lunch at school has worn off, their families can't afford to provide rounded meals. Members of the church collect the following items to get to these children: breakfast bars, ravioli, pudding cups, peaches, vegetable soup, canned tuna & chicken, canned spaghetti with meatballs, pork-n-beans, fruit cocktail and peanut butter. If you would like to donate any of these items to help feed the children, please call the church office at 704-283-5656. Thank you!
