Leadership and Decision Making
In the scripture, we see that although Christ is the head of the church which is his body, the church is led by Elders that have been given spiritual authority to lead the church and we are to follow their lead.

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.

♪ Impossible Things
You heal the broken-hearted
You set the captive free
You lift the heavy burden
And even now You are lifting me
There is no healer like the Lord our Maker
There is no equal to the King of kings oh
Our God is with us we will fear no evil
'Cause You do impossible things
(Yeah You do impossible things)
Though I walk through the valley
Darkness surrounding me
There You prepare a table mmm
In the presence of my enemies yeah
One word and the walls start falling
One word and the blind will see
One word and the sinner's forgiven
'Cause You do impossible things

♪ Raise A Hallelujah
I raise a hallelujah in the presence of my enemies
I raise a hallelujah louder than the unbelief
I raise a hallelujah my weapon is a melody
I raise a hallelujah Heaven comes to fight for me
I’m gonna sing in the middle of the storm
Louder and louder you’re gonna hear my praises roar
Up from the ashes hope will arise
Death is defeated the King is alive
I raise a hallelujah with everything inside of me
I raise a hallelujah I will watch the darkness flee
I raise a hallelujah in the middle of the mystery
I raise a hallelujah fear you lost your hold on me
Sing a little louder (Sing a little louder)
Sing a little louder (Sing a little louder)
Sing a little louder (Sing a little louder)
Sing a little louder (Sing a little louder)
Sing a little louder in the presence of my enemies
Sing a little louder louder than the unbelief
Sing a little louder my weapon is a melody
Sing a little louder Heaven comes to fight for me

♪ How Great Thou Art
O Lord my God, When I in awesome wonder,
Consider all the worlds Thy hands have made,
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder,
Thy power throughout, the universe displayed
Then sings my soul My Savior God to Thee,
How great Thou art, how great Thou art,
Then sings my soul my Savior God to Thee,
How great Thou art, how great Thou art
When thru the woods and forest glades I wander,
And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees,
When I look down from lofty mountain grandeur,
And hear the brook and feel the gentle breeze
And when I think that God His Son not sparing,
Sent Him to die I scarce can take it in,
That on the cross my burden gladly bearing,
He bled and died to take away my sin
When Christ shall come with shout of acclamation,
And take me home what joy shall fill my heart,
Then I shall bow in humble adoration,
And there proclaim my God how great Thou art
♪ Completely
All I have and all that I am,
Belongs to You Lord completely,
You gave Your Son to die for me,
A debt that I could not repay,
You gave me love, You gave me life,
Now I give it back to You completely,

Jimmy Mac
♪ Well Done
What will it be like when my pain is gone
And all the worries of this world just fade away
What will it be like when You call my name
In that moment when I see You face to face
I'm waiting my whole life to hear You say
Well done well done
My good and faithful one
Welcome to the place where you belong
Well done well done
My beloved child
You have run the race and now you're home
Welcome to the place where you belong
What will it be like when tears are washed away
And every broken thing will finally be made whole
What will it be like when I come into Your glory
Standing in the presence of a love so beautiful
I'm waiting my whole life for that day
I will live my life to hear you say
What will it be like when I hear that sound
All of heaven's angels crying out
Singing holy holy,
Holy are You Lord
Singing holy holy
Holy are You Lord
Singing holy holy
Holy are You Lord
I'm waiting my whole life for that day
Until then I'll live to hear You say
Welcome to the place where you belong

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.
