All of us long for significance and purpose in our lives. As we enter into a new year and decade, it is a good time for us to access where we are at and what we want to become in the weeks and years ahead - both as individuals and as a church. In the MAKE IT COUNT series, we will learn some practical things we can do to grow personally, make a difference in the lives of others, and be the Church that Jesus wants us to be. We look forward to seeing you!
Helping people connect with God and others is a big deal at Otterbein. As we enter into a new year, we have a number of opportunities for you to connect with others, learn the teachings in the Bible, grow spiritually and connect with God in greater ways.

nursery, classrooms and worship center. We welcome guests, and
our church wants to help you have a good first-time experience.

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.
