Parents’ Night Out gives parents the opportunity to spend quality time together. We have seen this ministry grow over the last year and a half, and received so much positive feedback from parents who benefit greatly from this date night each month!
Even though the snow would not stop, congregants braved the January weather to come out for our 6th annual Glo Bowl Event. We enjoyed the fellowship, pizza and laughter together on a cold and snowy night!
I was so thankful for the Christmas cookie box invite opportunity to reach out to our babysitter. Our kids were so excited to present the cookies to her and she was super touched by the gesture.
Our Pray First events have grown significantly over the last year and a half. The enthusiasm and excitement for prayer has been incredibly encouraging!
I thank God for leading me to attend a Women’s LIFE Group when I first came to The Orchard. God richly blessed me through the prayers and efforts of these faithful friends and sisters in Christ.
The Orchard Vernon Hills added Awana this year; for our first year we already have 50 clubbers attending, hearing the Gospel, and memorizing Scripture each week!
Over the last two years, we have seen great growth in our young adults community. We are so encouraged to see them excited to fellowship in the Lord and grow in Christ together!
We’ve been encouraged to see such strong Awana and Youth Group participation for 2022-2023, it’s a full house for us on Wednesday nights!
I’m always looking for opportunities to invite people to church. I try to love my neighbors and be faithful, and leave it in God’s hands to draw them.
