Every week on the OCC Podcast, you will hear a sermon from lead pastor James Green and the rest of the teaching team at Orchards Community Church (Lewiston, ID) as they exegete the Bible and give you practical, applicable, and helpful answers to life's questions. Then, every Wednesday, you can join us for MIDPOINT, a new series where the pastors discuss the sermon, answer questions from the congregation, and give ways you can prepare your heart and mind for the upcoming service.
Consider joining us in person for worship on Sunday morning at 9:00 or 10:30 am or on Monday nights at 7:00 pm.
WB RUIN... Noah's Ark - Wesley Schwartz and Brenton Laidler
The WB Show has morphed into "WB Ruin..." a series where Pastor Wesley and Pastor Brenton ruin the children's version of Noah's ark and help the church to focus on the biblical narrative rather than the watered down, paraphrased version.
Midpoint - Eat more meals around the table
Pastor Andrew and Forrest talk through the vision of OCC and answering the call for God's life by saying, "Here I am Lord! Send me." They also lay the foundation for why we do family Sundays.
Vision - Andrew Smith
When God calls, we should be like the prophet Isaiah and say, "send me, Lord."
Midpoint - Don't stop at the paperclip
Something new for you all. Pastor Brenton and his wife talk about his sermon on mission. They talk about how to maintain safe boundaries in relationships at work while following the promptings of the Holy Spirit and then leap ahead to talk about the final message in this series, the Vision of OCC (and not the Marvel Avenger either).
Mission - Brenton Laidler
You were not made to be stagnant and complacent in your faith. Our mission is about making disciples who make disciples. It is about transformation; helping LOST people become BELIEVERS become WORKERS become DISCIPLE MAKERS.
Midpoint - Hurt by church people
Pastors James and Andrew talk through the purpose of Orchards Community Church as well as answer a few questions from the congregation, including how to deal with hurts from church people and maintain relationships.
