Prayer thoughts

This morning I read a great definition of prayer...
Prayer is asking God for something.
So, based on that, what are you praying for today? I also ran across 5 characteristics/attributes of God that invite our prayers to Him.
  1. He is able.
  2. He is Father.
  3. He is personal.
  4. He is holy.
  5. He is merciful.

We have decided to cancel the Sunday morning services.

Please be safe and enjoy the day with your family! Don't waste the opportunity to worship God even without being at 316 Red Mill!

We will make a decision tomorrow morning on whether we will still be able to enjoy our Christmas Program with our choir.

God bless you.


The Christmas Program dress rehearsal scheduled for today has been canceled.

The distribution for AngelFood has been postponed until tomorrow at 4 pm.

Outlook for OBC's services on the 20th

Our church staff is closely monitoring the snow storm predicted for this weekend. The initial forecast seems to be calling for a significant amount of snow. In light of this, we will try to make a determination as soon as we can regarding services on Sunday morning.

Please keep checking the blog for more details, or you can visit our "winter cancellation" page for information on local radio stations.

Thank you for your cooperation.
