On Thursday, April 18, we will have a special communion service at 6:30 p.m. in the Church Worship Center. This will be an intimate time of worship and reflection as we share the Lord’s Supper. Childcare will be available for children birth—preschool.


On Saturday, April 20, the Children’s Ministry will hold its annual Easter Egg Hunt at 11:00 a.m. at the Otterbein Community Recreation Park on Welty Road (13375 Welty Road). This year’s hunt is for children age 2—grade 5.


We have added a Saturday evening service on Easter weekend (April 20, 6:30 p.m.) to make room for additional guests who will join us as we celebrate Jesus’ resurrection. Children’s ministries will be available on Saturday evening for children birth—preschool. We will have our regular schedule (8, 9:30, 11:00 a.m.) on Easter Sunday, April 21.



Join us for one of our Easter celebrations this weekend as we celebrate Jesus' resurrection. Senior Pastor Mike Newman will begin the UPSIDE DOWN LIVING series with the message DEATH IS LIFE.  Jesus' plan for life often seems upside down from a human perspective and yet the Bible is clear that His plan is the better plan for life.  Throughout the series, we are going to dig into Jesus' teachings and talk honestly and practically about how His teachings apply to our lives today.  We hope you will join us!

We will have four services Easter weekend.  On Saturday, we will have a 6:30 p.m. service. Nursery-Preschool ministries will be available on Saturday. On Sunday, services are at 8:00, 9:30, and 11:00 a.m. All children, birth–grade 5, will meet in the same building as the adults at 9:30 & 11:00. Nursery is available at all services. Our youth program will meet at 9:30 in the Youth building (white building).

All Services will be held in our new worship center (912 South Potomac Street, Waynesboro, PA  17268).


The Easter Meal Outreach is a church-wide project to provide Easter meal bags for those struggling financially in our community.  In cooperation with Waynesboro Community and Human Services, we are handing out meal bags to those who are struggling financially or are senior adult shut-ins.  We will also provide a free breakfast on Good Friday, April 19, 8-9:30 a.m. for those picking up their meal bags.

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.
