**Note: due to COVID, we have temporarily suspended all in-person activities.
WELCOME!We worship every Sunday at 10:00 am and we'd love for you to join us. You can find us online on our YouTube channel or our Facebook page, or you can join us at the church for in-person worship - the guidelines are below.
We also have a weekly prayer service on Facebook - Thursdays at 7:00 pm.
Guidelines for on-site worship: We worship outside under the portico.
No personal contact - no hugs or handshakes, please. Please maintain 6 feet of distance from one another at all times.
Hand sanitizer is available by the offering plates.
The offering plates will not be passed. You are invited to give online, or drop your offering in the plates that are by the glass doors. No offering envelopes will be out.
Singing will be minimal.
Everyone is required to wear a mask that covers your mouth and nose at all times.
There will be one Bible and one hymnal at each set of chairs. Each week every Bible and hymnal will be removed and replaced with new - we have enough to rotate every week for four weeks before returning a previously used Bible/hymnal.
There will be no time of fellowship after the service.
The bathrooms have been sanitized, but we don’t have the personnel to disinfect in between each person. Disinfectant wipes will be provided in each restroom so that you can disinfect before you touch anything. One person in the restroom at a time, and we ask that you wash your hands for 20 seconds before exiting, using your paper towel to open the door and shut off the light before throwing your paper towel away In the fellowship hall trash can.
If you are feeling unwell, have run a fever within the past week, or have come into contact with anyone who has tested positive for COVID, we ask that you stay home and worship online.
Dress is casual. You'll find some men in jackets and ties and women in dresses or skirts, and some in comfortable slacks and shirts. Jeans and t-shirts, shorts and flip flops are fine, too. The important thing is your presence, not your appearance.
We celebrate communion the first Sunday of each month, also on Christmas Eve and on Maundy Thursday. The sacrament is open to all. The pastor will always give instructions so you'll know what to do.
WHO WE ARE Orange Beach Presbyterian Church is a member of the denomination called the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), often called PC(USA). Presbyterians are distinctive in two major ways: they adhere to a pattern of religious thought known as Reformed theology and a form of government that stresses the active, representational leadership of both ministers and church members.
Presbyterian churches are connectional, meaning they work together with other churches and bodies to do Christ's work in ministry, mission, service, education, and government. Churches are clustered in geographical areas called presbyteries and synods. OBPC is one of the 21 churches that make up the Presbytery of South Alabama. Presbyteries are grouped in larger clusters to form synods. We are a part of the Synod of Living Waters. Every other year, the denomination holds a General Assembly, where commissioners gather to worship, study, debate, and conduct business. Clergy and laity are represented in equal numbers.
