Join the family here at OPC!
Orcutt Pres is a family people who want to follow Jesus and live our lives together in his direction for his glory. While our community of faith is open to everyone, we invite people to make a public declaration and commitment of their faith. Those who believe in God and submit to Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord may become members. what we call COVENANT PARTNERS by professing their faith.
To that end, we offer COVENANT PARTNER CLASSES a few times a year.
Usually held on a Sunday afternoon for a few hours:
It's an opportunity to:
- Explore the basics of the Christian faith.
- Meet and learn from our pastors in a personal setting.
- Hear a little history about Orcutt Pres
- Interact with other new folks.
- Find ways to connect and take next steps in discipleship.
Covenant Partners (members) of Orcutt Pres:
- Receive encouragement, support and correction as Jesus promises to those who share spiritual fellowship.
- Grow more Christ-like together in Christian community.
- Discover our unique place in a common mission in God’s story.
- Enjoy the privilege and duty of voting in congregational meetings
- Become eligible to serve in leadership positions such as ministry teams and elected officer roles.
Covenant Partners of Orcutt Pres commit to:
- Participate in the congregation’s worship, fellowship and service as regularly as possible.
- Devote themselves to God's mission through OPC with their time and energy.
- Give sacrificially in proportion to the blessings they have received to support Orcutt Pres in mission and ministry to advance the Kingdom of God (recognize the tithe—10 percent of income—as a Biblical ideal for a mature Christian disciple).
After completing the Covenant Partnership Class, new Covenant Partners meet with some elders to share their faith in Jesus Christ and are presented to the congregation during worship at a scheduled time.
Contact the office or talk to a pastor if you're interesting in being in the next class.
