DNA is the chemical name for the molecules that carry genetic instructions in all living things. Every living thing has DNA and one of the amazing things about it is that everyone’s DNA is distinct. We each have our own unique genetic signature. Although the church is made up of people who are living beings, the true life of the church is spiritual and there is also a unique spiritual signature to the church, kind of like DNA. Of course, we can’t do a DNA test on the church, so figuring out its true DNA is more complicated. Because of that people sometimes disagrees about what the DNA of the church really is. So, with this series we’re going to take a look at the scripture to clarify the true DNA of the church and dive into the implication of that means for us.

♪ Marvelous Light
Expand
I am not who I once was
Defined by all the things I’ve done
Afraid my shame would be exposed
Afraid of really being known
But then you gave my heart a home
So I walked out of the darkness and into the light
From fear of shame into the hope of life
Mercy called my name and made a way to fly
Out of the darkness and into the light
Years of keeping secrets safe
Wondering if I could change
‘Cause when you’re hiding all alone
Your heart can turn into a stone
And that’s not the way I want to go
There’s no place I’d rather be
Your light is marvelous your light is marvelous
You have come to set us free
You are marvelous your light is marvelous to me

♪ Build My Life
Expand
Worthy of ev'ry song we could ever sing
Worthy of all the praise we could ever bring
Worthy of ev'ry breath we could ever breathe
We live for You
Jesus the name above ev'ry other name
Jesus the only one who could ever save
Worthy of ev'ry breath we could ever breathe
We live for You
We live for You
Holy there is no one like You
There is none beside You
Open up my eyes in wonder and show me who You are
And fill me with Your heart
And lead me in Your love to those around me
I will build my life upon Your love
It is a firm foundation
I will put my trust in You alone
And I will not be shaken

♪ Great is Thy Faithfulness
Expand
Great is Thy faithfulness, great is Thy faithfulness,
Morning by morning, new mercies I see,
All I have needed, Thy hand hath provided,
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord unto me
Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father,
There is no shadow, of turning with Thee,
Thou changest not, Thy compassions they fail not,
As Thou hast been, Thou forever wilt be
Summer and winter, and springtime and harvest,
Sun moon and stars, in their courses above,
Join with all nature, in manifold witness,
To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love
Pardon for sin, and a peace that endureth,
Thy own dear presence, to cheer and to guide,
Strength for today, and bright hope for tomorrow,
Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside

♪ Christ is Enough
Expand
Christ is my reward and all of my devotion
Now there's nothing in this world
That could ever satisfy
Through every trial my soul will sing
No turning back, I've been set free
Christ is enough for me
Christ is enough for me
Everything I need is in You
Everything I need
Christ my all in all the joy of my salvation
And this hope will never fail
Heaven is our home
Through every storm my soul will sing
Jesus is here to God be the glory
I have decided to follow Jesus
No turning back no turning back
The cross before me the world behind me
No turning back no turning back

♪ Glorious Day
Expand
I was buried beneath my shame
Who could carry that kind of weight
It was my tomb 'til I met You
I was breathing but not alive
All my failures I tried to hide
It was my tomb 'til I met You
('Cause when) You called my name (and)
I ran out of that grave
Out of the darkness into Your glorious day
You called my name (and) I ran out of that grave
Out of the darkness into Your glorious day
Now Your mercy has saved my soul
Now Your freedom is all that I know
The old made new Jesus when I met You
I needed rescue my sin was heavy
But chains break at the weight of Your glory
I needed shelter I was an orphan
Now You call me a citizen of Heaven
When I was broken You were my healing
Now Your love is the air that I'm breathing
I have a future my eyes are open

Worship Options

We are excited to be able to worship under the Tent together. If you are not wanting to be under the Tent, feel free to sit in the front row of parking spots of the Orchard Parking Lot in your car and tune your radio to 100.1 FM to listen to the service.

We would ask that we all seek to be extra considerate of one another. Be careful not to assume that others have the same comfort levels or boundaries that you do and please respect those differences where they exist. Allow others to make their own decisions without judgment as you have made your own.

1. Masks are now optional.
2. Please maintain the Social Distance.
3. Sunday Morning Children's program. Children are always welcome in the service and we do not mind the noises that come with children. Children are a healthy sign of a healthy congregation.

Orchard Kids Sunday School (For preschool through 5th grade)
Children will join the family at the beginning of the service and after the Children's Message will be escorted to the Children's Ministry Center for fun games, activities, and learning!

While we understand that some may not feel comfortable coming back in person, we encourage you to stay home and join us online with our Live Stream.

Office Hours
Monday – Thursdays from 10 am to noon.
Masks and social distancing are required.
If you are unable to make it in during our office hours, please send an email to info@orchardventura.org and or leave a message at (805) 647-3757.
