Announcements and Upcoming Events

Pastor Emmanuel Nyema Leads us in a Fifth Sunday Lenten Worship Service

March 29th Sunday Service

Greetings Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

It’s hard to believe that this is already the fifth Sunday in Lent.  Please join us in a streamed Lenten Worship service led by Pastor Emmanuel Nyema based on the Holy Gospel according to St. John, the third chapter.  Even though this is not the same as being together as we hear God’s word being preached, we can take comfort knowing that we are together in spirit as we listen to God’s message for us today.  

  • Only good things can come from hearing God’s word so please feel free to share this email and video with your family, friends and neighbors.
  • Please remember to love our neighbors by checking in with elderly family, friends and neighbors to make sure they are well, and offer assistance as needed.
  • Keep the members of the medical community and first responders in prayer.
  • Updates – We will continue to provide you with regular updates.  Please don’t hesitate to contact your elder or the church office if you have any questions or concerns. April - June 2020 Portals of Prayer can be mailed to you with a call or email to the church office. (232-7575 or office@orelc.org)
