Looking for a new church?

This time of year it seems like there are a number of people checking out various church options.  Some are thrust into this because of changing circumstances like relocation into a new community or starting university/college.  Many of us face the awkward challenge of doing this at least a few times during our life time.  Unfortunately some engage in this ritual frequently.

What to look for?  Relevant Magazine's article, "Church Shopping" is a good read and will be helpful to many. 

I would suggest that if you are considering making OBC your church that you consider the biblical truth that church is not about a place that you go to but a family you belong to, a family on mission whether we are together or dispersed.  If church for you is just about coming to the gathering on Sunday and filling a seat then we aren't the people for you.


During our series on the Psalms we encouraged people to write out their own "psalm-like" thoughts to God, whether it was praise, thanksgiving, or lament. Psalm Boards will be on display in the main entrance of the church for the next couple of weeks.
