from pastor troy...

Isn't it true - when you sense God calling you to pray and you do it- it feels good!  It does!  It feels good to know YOU have met with God.  As you know Orchard Beach is in a season of "remaining/waiting" - prayer.  Let's feel good together- and pray!  

1.  Please listen to this Sunday's message:  "How God equips us to speak to a world that hates us."  We need to be ready!  We need to have a voice!  Full Sunday messages are only available on line (Facebook at 9:15 AM -  We have a live host ready to meet you and chat together live)  It can also be viewed on demand on our website:  www.orchardbeach.church and on Youtube.  

2.  Join us for prayer and worship at 10:30 AM.  I know the mask thing is a pain and real issue for many. Also some are at more risk.  But if you are feeling safe to get out, let's get out.  This is primarily for prayer & worship (remaining/waiting)  We are believing for conversions, healings, baptisms, and God's preparation for what He has ahead.!  One thought- view the message online and them join us at 10:30 for prayer and worship- experiencing God's presence together!.  Please wear a mask unless medically unable. 

*If you have not been baptized since you have believed, the tank is ready for you each week.    

3.  What about my kids?  Bring them to have someone pray over them!  We realize the unique challenges that come with having children with you.  Yet we want our children to experience the presence of God.  Please free free to come and go as you need.  Also, our nursery and toddler rooms will be open for parents to get away, feed, or change young ones.  (Activity packets will also be available).   

3.  If you haven't jumped on board our church fast, it's not too late.  Here is a guide for fasting with a prayer outline:  https://www.orchardbeach.church/   What we do in the physical releases what God wants to do in the spiritual! 

Come on- believe with me- the best is yet to come!  Wether you can make it or not, pray. It feels good!  :)  Have a great weekend!

OBA Independence Day update

JULY 3, 2020

Hi Orchard Beach friend

Happy Independence Day weekend! 

If you haven't heard, we've entered a season of "reamining/waiting"!  As we've begun to regather on Sundays at 10:30 AM, our focus is on prayer and worship. We need God.  We need to seek God.  Our community and nation need us to pray.  And, as we look at the beginings of the early church, we see they came together to wait & pray for the Holy Spirit.  We need to pray together. 

This Sunday: (to be in compliance with our governor's orders --masks will now be REQUIRED)

1.  There will be preservice prayer for all who'd like to participate 10-10:30am

2.  Service will begin at 10:30am with a powerful testimony--encouraging us to be READY & have our priorities in line.

3.  Our worship team will lead us into the presence of God thru song

4.  Several leaders will lead in focused prayers

5.  An opportunity will be given for anyone who needs prayer for anything or to be baptized.in water    

(we realize the unique challenges that come with having children with you.  Yet we want our children to experience the presence of God.  Please free free to come and go as you need.  Also, our nursery and toddler rooms will be open for parents to get away, feed, or change young ones.  Packages of crayons will also be available).   

Have fun this weekend and be safe!

ORCHARD BEACH UPDATE:

June 23, 2020

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT REGATHERING

We're not rushing back to activity; we're coming back to a fresh encounter - "REMAIN"

We're excited! The doors of Orchard Beach Assembly are reopening for anyone who needs help or wants to join in an emphasis to help others. We are expecting to encounter the Lord. Our desire is not to rush back to activity and things as usual, but to come back to a fresh encounter with the Holy Spirit. With all that is happening in our community, country and the world, from the pandemic, to drug deaths, to the divisiveness & lawlessness, the perceived weakening of the church, to the racial tensions, to the mental health epidemic, to the challenges in our schools, to the millions of people going on unemployment, etc, Orchard Beach will regather Sunday mornings to cooperatively meet with God and call on Him for what only He can do. (prayer & worship)

We believe the Lord is guiding us and is specifically saying:

-I want you to "remain/wait" and pray - because....

-I want to cause people to give up their sins

-I want to heal people- mind and body

-I want to strengthen people and meet tangible needs

-I want to fill everyone with my Spirit

-I want to embolden everyone to speak about Jesus

There will be a brief message with prayer, worship, and specific opportunities for the laying on of hands and water baptism. The focus will be on relaxing in God's presence and following the words given to the church when it first began: "Repent, then and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord,.." Acts 4:19.

WHEN ARE WE REGATHERING?

SHOULD WE WEAR A MASK?

We "highly recommend" wearing masks and hope you do, but this will not be policed by staff or volunteers. It's important to understand there are a variety of reasons why some may come and are not able to wear a mask. Let's keep the spirit of unity and respect any differences. (Staff and volunteers will be wearing masks while serving except Pastor Troy while speaking and the worship team while leading from far up front).
