Some Thoughts from Pastor Steve

By the time you read this newsletter, and if you were in worship on November 4th, you will have heard the ‘challenge’ that Pastor Steve has given to the Orangethorpe Church family. It is a ‘personal challenge’ that involves YOU playing the role of evangelist. A challenge, over the next 12 months to find one person…that’s right…just one….a friend, family member, business acquaintance to introduce to Orangethorpe Christian Church.

Though our worship numbers are small, we have an incredible ministry going on here at Orangethorpe. One that needs to be shared with others. Our building is home to multiple congregations, of different denominational and cultural backgrounds than are own. We host a weekly hot-meal program to help the homeless and ‘working poor’ of our community. We provide a caring network of individuals…all of whom are concerned about spiritual growth and caring for the community and world around them. It is a great place for people to begin or continue their spiritual journeys.

So have you begun to make up your list of who you might invite/involve? There is no time like the present to start. Remember, our church will only grow will we help it do so.

With a Spirit to Serve,
Pastor Steve
