Acts 1:8 Celebration Weekend
On Saturday October 19th we will have a SERVE Day. This will be a church-wide ministry day. As time approaches, sign-up sheets for various projects will be available for you to view. Some projects will be inside, some outside, and some off site in the community. CHAT and HART participate on SERVE Day. That evening, we will all meet in the Family Lifer Center for a time of celebration as we eat, sing, and listen to our various mission partners share what God is doing in and through OBBC. On Sunday morning, a special emphasis on “The Nations” will be had as we pray for our missionaries around the world.
On Wednesday October 30th at 6:00 pm we will gather our vehicles together for a time of fun for the kids. Trunk-or-Treat offers a safe environment for the kiddos to show off their costumes and get some candy. For the adults, this is a time to rub elbows with people in the community who may need a church home. AWANA kids will be encouraged to participate. We need at least 20 vehicles to participate. If you cannot decorate a vehicle, would you contribute some candy? Also, we are encouraging church members to bring their favorite crock-pot of chili for a contest inside. A blessing will be said at 6:30 pm for the food.
O.C.C. Packing Party
On November 3rd we will have our second annual Operation Christmas Child Packing Party and Fish Fry at 5:00 pm. This is a fun event for all ages. With Christmas music playing and an empty box in hand, you will have the opportunity to pack a special box for whatever gender and age you choose. Last year we packed over 200 boxes.
While boxes are being packed, fish will need to be eaten! Whatever dollar amount you can put in the basket will go towards the cost of sending the boxes. Each box cost $9 to ship.
Hanging of the Greens
On December 1st at 6:00 pm our church will bring in the Christmas spirit by singing our favorite Christmas carols and decorating the sanctuary with the traditional greenery. Other churches in the area are invited to join us for this evening event. Please invite your neighbors to this heartwarming time of celebrating the nativity
On December 22nd at 6:00 pm, the food service committee will provide a nice meal for all in the Family Life Center. Along with singing a couple favorite hymns, we will also partake in the Lord’s Supper. A sign-up sheet will be in the foyer as time approaches.

Approved Workman Are Not Ashamed
With the kick-off of another school year, AWANA is back for another year. This kids program (k-5thgrade) is a two-hour fun packed event from 6:00 pm -8:00 pm. At AWANA kids learn Scripture, sing songs, play on the AWANA Square, and eat a hotdog. Including the teenagers upstairs, Wednesday nights typically run between 45-55 kids with 15-20 adult helpers. But we still need more helpers. Will you? We need small group teachers, teacher aides, rec. leaders, greeters, and more. If you would like to participate, see Harry Robinson at church Sunday.
Care & Share
Every Wednesday from 9:30-3:00 pm, our doors open to the public. Care and Share is mainly clothing items, but there is much more a person can find. A crew of volunteers sort, fold, and organize items donated every week. This is relentless work that is never quite finished. Are you interested in helping in this benevolent ministry of the church? See Judy Mills at church this Sunday and see how you can help.
Every Wednesday from 9:00 am-the late afternoon, a group of ladies meets in the resource building to sew, quilt, monogram and stitch all kinds of items. Everything made is donated to a variety of ministries in need of sewn items. Want to join? See Celeste Viale at church this Sunday or simply show up this Wednesday.
Christian After School teaching
Every Monday a group of church members meet at EMES at 2:30 for a time of ministry. For an hour and a half, we have the opportunity to lead 50 children in Bible study, snacks, songs, and activities. If you are interested in helping with this outreach, please contact Kathy bridges this Sunday!
Every Monday and Tuesday night, a troop of girls meet upstairs for a time of learning and growth. This is one way we as a church can open-up our doors to the community to build bridges. If you have a young girl interested in Girl Scouts, contact Terri Lankford at church Sunday.
Every time we have an eating event the Food Service people are there to help. From AWANA to 5th Sunday potluck, to picnics or special events, these people cook, prep, and organize the food. Want to join in and help? See Wayne Counts at church this Sunday and he’ll put you to work!
Handy Men Ministry
Can you swing a hammer or fix a leaky pipe? If so, come on out this Wednesday at 8:00 am and join the fellas on a project around the church property. This group of 5-10 men handle the day to day items that wear out, need replacing, or just a little TLC. Talk to Hal McDonell Sunday about helping-out.
The church office is open Monday through Thursday 9:00 am-3:00 pm thanks to volunteers who answer the door, phone and do the bulletins each week. They also do random tasks like putting this booklet together!
Each person who volunteers sign-up for a shift in the morning or afternoon. If you would like to volunteer in the office, see Jon Williams at church this Sunday and he will give you a volunteer application for you to fill out and return.
Building Bridges Day Care has been a ministry outreach of this church for many years. It is a totally self-sufficient daycare, VPK and after-school program with over 50 children. Please keep them in mind as you pray. If you would like to help in this ministry, a list of cleaning and maintenance tasks are available upon request. Stop in during the week and ask for Janet Cordrey.
All the cleaning at OBBC is done by church members. We have three teams: Red, Blue, and Orange. Each team works two weeks on and four weeks off. When it’s their teams turn, they get a friendly reminder from our office helpers on Wednesdays. Reminders are also int eh bulletin each week.
Each team meets in the Family Life Center at 6:00 pm on Friday, says a word of prayer and then divides jobs for the evening. Tasks are posted on a job board in the Equipment room. After 2-2 ½ hours the cleaning is done for the week. If you want to join a cleaning team see the following Team Leaders: Jim & Kathy Peebles, Cody & Jessica Swett, or Justin & Kim Gwin
