Youth

Sunday School is a place for 6th-8th grade students to deepen their understanding of who God is, the Bible, and the church's beliefs.  We meet in the Junior High Room in the GRACE Center (GC 104) from 10:45-11:30 AM. 

 

Junior High Youth Group is for students in 7th & 8th grade.  Join us on Wednesday nights from 6:30-8:00 PM in the Youth Room of the church's lower level. We meet September 22, 2021 - April 27, 2022. Click here for our monthly events calendar.

Our time together consists of games, teaching, and small groups.  We play a variety of games to build friendships.  During our teaching time, we focus on the Great Commandment: How to love God, love others, and love ourselves.  Small groups are when the night's teachings are discussed and applied to help students grow in relationships with other believers.

Other opportunities include fun events, local service projects, and a winter retreat.  Join us as we learn about God together!  Friends are always welcome!

'Hallelujiah! Praise the Lord! Praise God in His Sanctuary!

Are you someone who is sitting in your church seat, when all of a sudden, the Praise Team starts heading up the stairs and you're already excited and start to tap your feet a bit, or maybe it's your hands against your legs, starting to pound a beat, wondering what song will they lead off or what instruments will be used?? If that sounds like YOU... it's time to get our of your seat 'cuz we have a place for you and a team to join, praises to lift high and a JESUS to love by worshipping Him in spirit and song, giving Him all glory due Him!!

This is not a team for professionals. As a matter of fact, it's a team for "all in" Jesus lovin' people who wanna use their gift of music to praise the One who gave their gift to them and to help prepare the hearts of people to receive the spoken word of God. We laugh alot, we help each other out, we gain new friendships, we encourage each other and we give of our BEST in our singing and playing to lift His name up!

ORC Players

The Ottawa Reformed Church Players is a collection of youth and young adults that express their love for Christ through acting, dance and song.  The group consists of up to 30 people between the ages of 5 through early twenties.  The make-up is not only members and friends of ORC but, also represents kids from surrounding communities.

 

The group puts on a number of different types of quality performances throughout the year.  Shows range from full scale plays with singing and dancing at local theaters, to smaller performances during church worship services.
