Advent is the season preceding Christmas where Christians take time to prepare for Christmas. Select the button below to go to this year's Advent Devotional. It includes Scripture readings to help you prepare for Christmas and to reinforce the biblical truth we will learn on Sunday mornings.
Life is filled with moments, and events that we don't expect. The Christmas story is filled with those types of moments. This Christmas we will study the first two chapters of the Gospel of Luke to learn how we can face the unexpected.
Dec. 5 - Unexpected Silence (Luke 1:1-25)
Dec. 12 - Unexpected News (Luke 1:26-56)
Dec. 19 - Unexpected Name (Luke 2:57-80)
Dec. 26 - Unexpected Visitors (Luke 2:1-38)

Christmas Card Exchange
Save the stamps this year when you send your Christmas cards. There is a mailbox with alphabetized mail slots in the Welcome Center at OBBC for you to use to exchange Christmas cards with your OBBC friends. You may place cards in the appropriate mail slot according to the last name. Don't forget to check the box for any cards that may be addressed to you! (If you know someone isn't attending church in person because of COVID, please don't put their card in the mailbox.)
