WELCOME!We worship every Sunday on Facebook and YouTube at 10:00 am and we'd love for you to join us! We also have a weekly prayer service on Facebook - Thursdays at 7:00 pm.
Whether you're a first time visitor or a long-time member, we are always happy to see you at worship or at any of the events and worship services at Orange Beach Presbyterian Church, whether online or on site.
If you're thinking of visiting our church or watching our services online, you might have questions about what to expect. That's normal, so here are a few things which might make your first visit more comfortable.
SUNDAY WORSHIP Sunday worship is at 10:00am. As Presbyterians, we are part of the Reformed Tradition, with a traditional service. If you'd like to know what the sermon will be about, please go to our Facebook page - our pastor goes live every Sunday around 8:15 to say good morning and tell us what the topic is.
Our online worship is available both on YouTube and Facebook - same service, so choose the platform that you prefer. All of the words to the hymns and prayers will appear on your screen. Once posted, the services stay up, so if Sunday morning doesn't work for you, feel free to worship when you can. 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 the procedure.
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 a member of 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.
