All of us are caught up in a spiritual battle between God and the devil.  It is a battle that most people don't think much about and yet God tells us to "be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power (Ephesians 6:10).  In Sunday's message, Senior Pastor Mike Newman is going to talk about the battle we face and how to FIGHT to win the battle with the power and resources God provides.

John Michael Hinton will also be joining us for a few minutes in all of morning worship services.  He will give us a preview of what he will be sharing with us on Sunday evening at 6 p.m. For more information about John Michael Hinton and to purchase tickets for Sunday evening, check out the information below.

John Michael Hinton is Coming to Otterbein Jan. 27



John Michael Hinton is coming to Otterbein on Sunday, January 27.  He will join us for a brief presentation in all services on Sunday morning (8, 9:30, 11 a.m.) and will do a full show at 6 p.m.  Tickets are required for the 6 p.m. show.  Tickets are $10 per person (grade 6 and older) and $5 for children (grade 5 and younger).  Childcare will be provided for children up through age 5.  Tickets can be purchased at Connection Point on Sunday mornings in the church lobby or CLICK HERE to purchase online.

John is best known for his energetic, passionate, and dynamic style when speaking before crowds.  He weaves the power of Scripture, story and humor to communicate challenging, life-changing messages. His unique style of close-up magic for the stage uses everyday objects to accomplish impossible feats.  Using a live video feed, every audience member is transported onto the stage just inches away from the mystery.  Driven by a passion to encourage people to embrace joy and find purpose, he uses the power of illusion, storytelling and humor in a mix that you won't soon forget.

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 worship center. 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.
