New Fundraiser

We have a fundraiser that will cost nothing to you and help out our youth ministry.

Kroger is donating money to our youth ministry, and all it takes is for you to register your Kroger Card.

Go to:

There you will sign in to your account (or register one if you don't).  Look for Oak Ridge Baptist Church - or our Account Number - 90386.

Once you register your card to our name, you're done!  You will still get the same discounts using your Kroger card, the only difference is that we now get a donation!

At the beginning of the year we talked about a new goal of personal evangelism in our youth department.

We adopted a new weekly strategy called "FISH".  Focus, Inspire, Share, Hook

Each week will represent a letter of the acronym.  This will change how we do our services week to week.  Here is an idea of some of the things we are doing...

Focus - This is where we focus on God's plan for us.  We begin to think about who we would like to invite to church and start praying.

Inspire - We try to bring a guest speaker in to share how they communicate the Gospel.

Share - We break up into groups and talk about things going in our lives, as well as how our evangelism journey is going.

Hook - We bring our friends to the service to hear the presentation of the Gospel.

Did you know?!?!

Did you know you could earn service hours at church?

When students go to high school many times they are in need of community service hours.  Our church offers lots of opportunities for you to earn hours!

One of the easiest ways is to volunteer with our Children's Church hour - ORANGE - at 11am during our main church service.

Thom or Tiffany will sign any hours earned.  Please understand we will only sign hours for students who are working during that hour.

On April 12th we will be helping the children's ministry with Easter celebration.  The youth department will be helping out with games, cooking food, and hiding Easter eggs. 

The Easter Event starts at 6:30pm so we are asking all of our youth helpers to come at 6:00 to help with prep.

If you have any younger siblings this would be a great thing for them to attend!

Praise Band

We just completed our new song.  It's based off an older hymn entitled "There's a New Song in my Heart". 

If you would like to be a part of the Youth Praise Band, we rehearse on Sunday evenings at 6pm in the Lighthouse.

Youth Ministry Feast

On November 16th we will be having our annual Youth Ministry Feast.  We'll have lots of food for the youth and their parents.

We will not be having your typical Thanksgiving food.  The feast will mostly consist of party foods (pizza, chips, dips).

The feast starts at 6:30pm at the Lighthouse!  Bring your friends and parents!
