SUNDAY'S MESSAGE: "Lost & Found"

On Sunday, November 18, Senior Pastor Mike Newman will continue the STORIES FOR LIFE series with the message LOST AND FOUND.  While on earth, Jesus often used short stories called parables to teach spiritual truths to people about everyday life. 


This week, we are going to look at two parables Jesus told about things that were lost and found.  In both stories, there are several important lessons about our attitudes towards people who are not yet Christians and what it would look like for us to tell others about Jesus.  In Sunday's service, we will also spend some time hearing from two of our Global Partners who are sharing about Jesus in a Muslim country.  


Reminder:  Sunday is also the final day for collection of Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes.    For more information about packing a shoebox, CLICK HERE.  (Note: Bring your shoeboxes to church with you on Sunday and we will see they are taken to a Operation Christmas Child Collection Center.)

Welcome to Otterbein

We know going to church for the first time can be a little awkward and even scary—especially if you don’t know anyone. We want to assure you that we will do everything we can to make your visit with us a positive one. We encourage you to stop at GUEST CENTRAL in the church lobby where a helpful volunteer will answer questions you have and provide an overview of our church programs. Greeters and ushers are available to answer questions you might have. Directional signs will point you toward our nursery, classrooms and sanctuary. We welcome guests, and our church wants to help you have a good first-time experience.

practical messages

We understand that one of the biggest criticisms of the church is that the sermons are boring and not very helpful. Our pastors try very hard to make sure that the sermons don’t just teach about the Bible, but that they also talk about how to put into practice what the Bible says. We use various forms of media to help explain the Bible, and outlines of the messages are provided every week so you can take notes and think more about the teaching in the messages after you leave the church.
