Next Service Time

3 Times to Visit Us

Sunday Mornings @ 9:45 & 11am

On Sunday Mornings at 9:45am there are age specific classes for your kids, a Bible class for Adults, & a Spanish Bible Study. At 11am we meet for worship with inspiring singing & Bible preaching. This is a great time to visit for the first time. At 11am there is also OD Kids Church for children ages 4-12, and a nursery for children 3 and under. 

The morning worship service is translated into Spanish.

Sunday Evenings @ 5pm

Sunday at 5pm is a great time when the core of our church gathers to celebrate the day in worship, and hear practical preaching from God’s Word. There are no children’s classes at this time as we want the whole family together, but we do have a nursery for children 3 and under. We often use this time for fellowship and to observe the Lord’s Table together.

Wednesday Evenings @ 7pm

Every Wednesday at 7pm we gather for prayer as a church, and study portions of Scripture together. We coordinate this effort through smaller groups that meet around our campus at the same time. There is a group for children, teens, Adults in English & Spanish, and we have childcare for children under 3.

Our Purpose

Heart for Christ

We exist to encourage people to develop a Heart for the Lord Jesus Christ through sharing the gospel by grace through faith completely in Jesus Christ, through discipleship and learning the Word of God, and through serving other believers in the body of Christ.

Home for Family

We exist to provide a Home where families can serve the Lord and others together in fellowship and ministry. We believe every person should know they have a Home in Heaven, are equipped to provide their family with a Christian Home, & have a Church Home that they are actively and faithfully serving others in.

Hope for Others

We exist to offer Hope to others through the support and sending of  missionaries, the establishment of local churches, and the reaching out into our community with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
