Hi! Thanks for taking time to explore our website. We'd love to meet you in person. Below you'll find a description of our Sunday morning gathering, activities for children, as well as information about becoming a member of OOBC.
We worship together each Sunday at 10:30 a.m. When you arrive, park in the big parking lot and expect plenty of friendly faces to welcome you.
Our service usually lasts about 75-90 minutes. We spend the first half of our time together singing, praying, and reading God's Word. During the second half, one of our pastors will give an expositional sermon based on a portion of the Bible. In each sermon we aim to reflect on what God says in his word and let the Gospel - the main message of the Bible, that God saves sinners through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ - drive our focus of each passage.
But what do I wear?! Good question. Some people dress up, others are more casual, so wear what makes you comfortable. We think your relationship with God is more important than your clothes.
Please stick around after service! We'd love to chat some, get to know you better, and answer any questions you have.
We love kids at OOBC and want to be good stewards of the responsibility God has given us to care for them. We strive to provide a safe and engaging environment for kids to learn about the gospel of Jesus Christ. If you're coming with kids, there is a check in area for nursery and children's church in the lobby.
There is a nursery available for infants and toddlers. Kids 4 years old up to those in 5th grade start with everyone in the service and are dismissed before the sermon. We use curriculum from The Gospel Project and pick up the lesson from Sunday morning on Wednesday nights.
In 1 Corinthians 12:27, Paul wrote to the church at Corinth, "Now you are the body of Christ, and individually members of it." One of the first steps in being a faithful follower of Jesus is to become a vital member of a local church body.
Christians are called to assemble together regularly to build one another up in Christ (Hebrews 10:23-25), to encourage one another regularly (Hebrews 3:12-14), to work together to get the Gospel to lost people around the world (Matthew 28:18-20), to protect each other from sin (James 5:19-20), to guard the church from hypocrisy (Matthew 18:15-18), and to be built up by the regular teaching of God’s Word through gifted teachers (Hebrews 13:17).
To faithfully follow these commands, Christians lock arms with other believers in a local assembly to foster deep, authentic, God-glorifying, sin-fighting relationships.
If you're interested in joining OOBC, you'll need to go through these steps:
Membership Class: This is a four session class that occurs bi-monthly. You'll learn about what we believe, why it's important to live out our walk with Christ among brothers and sisters at a local church, how the Bible calls us to live together as a church, and our church's history.
Elder Interview: Please don't be intimidated by this. This is an opportunity for us to get to know each other and hear about how you became a follower of Jesus.
Congregational Affirmation: Fancy words, we know, but it's a purposeful time, nonetheless. After going through the class and sitting down with an elder, our congregation affirms (votes to receive) each prospective member at one of our members meetings. This time communicates that by becoming a member, you commit to love, care for, and serve the entire church community; conversely, the entire church community commits to love, care for, and serve you.
