New Study Begins October 7

Coffee Break will meet at church beginning Oct. 7, 9:45-11:00 am. We will be studying "The Joy of Sharing Jesus." Have you wanted to share your love for Jesus with others, but just didn't know where to start? This study will motivate and train you through a proven approach that starts with prayer and concludes with the joyful confidence and ability to "answer everyone." No Story Hour or childcare available at this time. Please email Carol Venhuizen if you are interested.

Preschool Classes Begin!

Orland Park Christian Preschool will open its doors for its 31st school year this Monday, Sept. 14. We welcome 42 children from 40 families representing Orland Church, other area churches, and our neighborhood community. We are excited and blessed to be learning in-person and prepared to meet the many demands for the health and safety of our children and their families. Please join the preschool staff (Ruth Baas, Brenda Harms, Janna Kuyvenhoven, and Barb Vree) in praying for God’s presence with us as we meet each day. May God grant us a healthy year and the blessings of spiritual, academic, and social growth in the children as the seeds of God’s Word are planted daily in the hearts of the children and their families. Our learning themes for the month of September include “God Made Me,” “God Made My Family,” and God Made My Friends.” The children have already helped us put together a mural for our school wall that shows the theme of being “Made By God.” Thank you for your support and your prayers!

New Sermon Series Begins September 20

Pastor Derek will soon begin his sermon series, “Something Beautiful for God: A Christian Vision of Sexuality.” It will address the issue of human sexuality from a Christian perspective with the hope that we will see the great beauty in what God has intended in the creation of the human person. Pastor Derek asks for your prayers, as this series will be addressing items of a uniquely sensitive nature and some areas in which the broader fallen world is in sharp disagreement with Christ’s church. We pray that throughout this series, we will rejoice in the beauty of what God has given us! Give to God your whole self that we might honor him with both body and soul, and use our whole person as something beautiful for God!
 
Thank you to everyone who supported Orland Park Christian Preschool through the annual Family Classics Car Show that was held this past Wednesday evening. What a blessing we received by all who attended and by all who gave generously in support of the preschool ministry. God was gracious in holding off the rain, and all who came enjoyed Christian fellowship together outdoors with dinner and car show activities. We thank our pastors for their participation by voting for their favorite vehicle and giving a welcome and opening prayer to all the participants. Information about our worship services online and in-person was presented, and a brochure listing the many opportunities provided by Orland Church to grow in Christ was shared.  Please pray that the witness for Christ and the fellowship of believers brings glory to God!
