Pastor's Blog


The coronavirus has been an opportunity to expand OCRBC's outreach. To my surprise in our first few weeks of livestreaming the morning services we have reached more people with the gospel message than in our regular services. We have continued to livestream our Sunday morning service while encouraging those who can attend to join us in the church for the services. We believe with great challenges comes great opportunities and are excited to see what God has for us in the future. Presently we are studying I John on Sunday morning, the Sermon on the Mount in the evening service and the book of Joshua in our Thursday evening Bible study. Each book helps us to grow spiritually in its own way.
