The Marks of a Healthy Church
In the scripture we can see some key marks of the church in the earliest picture of the church that we have that help us to know what a healthy church looks like.

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.

♪ Whom Shall I Fear?
Expand
You hear me when I call
You are my morning song
Though darkness fills the night
It cannot hide the light
Whom shall I fear
You crush the enemy underneath my feet
You are my sword and shield
Though troubles linger still
Whom shall I fear
I know Who goes before me
I know Who stands behind
The God of angel armies is always by my side
The One who reigns forever
He is a friend of mine
The God of angel armies is always by my side
My strength is in Your name
For You alone can save
You will deliver me
Yours is the victory
Whom shall I fear
Whom shall I fear
(And) nothing formed against me shall stand
You hold the whole world in Your hands
I'm holding on to Your promises
You are faithful
You are faithful

♪ How Great Is Our God
Expand
The splendor of the King
Clothed in majesty
Let all the earth rejoice
All the earth rejoice
He wraps Himself in light
And darkness tries to hide
And trembles at His voice
And trembles at His voice
How great is our God
Sing with me
How great is our God
And all will see how great
How great is our God
And age to age He stands
And time is in His hands
Beginning and the End
Beginning and the End
The Godhead three in one
Father Spirit Son
The Lion and the Lamb
The Lion and the Lamb
Name above all names
Worthy of all praise
My heart will sing
How great is our God

CCLI Song # 4348399
♪ No Longer Slaves
Expand
You unravel me with a melody,
You surround me with a song,
Of deliverance from my enemies, till all my fears are gone
I'm no longer a slave to fear, I am a child of God,
I'm no longer a slave to fear, I am a child of God
From my Mother's womb, You have chosen me,
Love has called my name, I've been born again into Your family
Your blood flows through my veins
You split the sea so I could walk right through it,
My fears were drowned in perfect love,
You rescued me so I could stand and sing,
I am a child of God

CCLI Song # 7030123
♪ Come As You Are
Expand
Come out of sadness from wherever you've been
Come broken-hearted let rescue begin
Come find your mercy O sinner come kneel
Earth has no sorrow that Heaven can't heal
Earth has no sorrow that Heaven can't heal
(So) Lay down your burdens lay down your shame
All who are broken lift up your face
O wanderer come home
You're not too far
So lay down your hurt lay down your heart
Come as you are
There's hope for the hopeless
And all those who've strayed
Come sit at the table come taste the grace
There's rest for the weary
Rest that endures
Earth has no sorrow that Heaven can't cure
There's joy for the morning O sinner be still
Earth has no sorrow that Heaven can't heal
Earth has no sorrow that Heaven can't heal

CCLI Song # 7017790
♪ Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone)
Expand
Amazing grace how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost but now I'm found
Was blind but now I see
'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear
And grace my fears relieved
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed
My chains are gone I've been set free
My God my Savior has ransomed me
And like a flood His mercy rains
Unending love amazing grace
The Lord has promised good to me
His word my hope secures
He will my shield and portion be
As long as life endures
The earth shall soon dissolve like snow
The sun forbear to shine
But God who called me here below
Will be forever mine
Will be forever mine
You are forever mine

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.
