ORCHARD BEACH UPDATE:
January 13, 2021
IN-PERSON CHURCH SERVICES RESUME
We will resume in-person Sunday services beginning Sunday, January 17th. There will be one service on Sundays at 10:30 AM. All entrances will be available. Ideally, children should enter thru the North or East entrance. Services will also be available on line but posted one week behind our in-person services until we are able to go live.
WITH YOUR SAFETY IN MIND
We encourage all to abide by our current government and CDC guidelines.
Also, every other pew is marked off, we'll avoid hand shaking and passing of offering plates, we have several hand sanitizing stations, Plexiglas has been installed on the platform for singers and speakers, and thorough cleaning takes place after each service.
Sunday and Wednesday children's and youth ministries will resume also.
All children/students over the age of 2 and all student ministry volunteers are required to wear masks.
Ideally, children should enter the North or East entrance for temperature checks and hand washing as they enter on Sundays and Wednesdays.
The nursery (for toddlers), the preschool ministry, and Kids Church for kids up to grade 5 will all be available. The infant nursery will not be staffed but open for parents to use.
Wednesday CHAMPS will begin on January 20th at 7PM for all kids up to grade 5.
On Sundays, students in grades 6-8 are invited to attend a small group following our singing time together.
On Wednesdays, beginning January 20th at 7 PM, --it's time for Youth Group!! All students in grades 6-12 will meet with our new Youth Director, Rhonda Keith.
LIFE GROUPS & SPECIALTY GROUPS
We have several Life Groups that meet during the week in person and others through Zoom or both. We'd love to help you connect with one that would be best for you.
Also available is a Celebrate Recovery group, a MOPS group, and a Widows group.
Please contact us at the church for help or further information.
As water baptism is a public expression of our commitment to Christ, membership is a public expression of our commitment to the local church. To learn more about Orchard Beach, our heart, beliefs, and ways to get the most out of your experience here, join us: All are invited to our next Membership Class on Saturday, January 23rd from 9-12 noon at the church. Junior membership is also available, through this meeting, for students ages 9-16. To reserve your spot, please contact us at the church by Friday, January 22.
THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR PATIENCE, UNDERSTANDING, AND SUPPORT IN THESE DIFFICULT TIMES. WE CAN'T WAIT TO SEE WHAT GOD WILL DO IN 2021.
