Otterbein United Methodist Church
Pastor Carolyn Baker
Thought for Today
" Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid."
Being the Church
The church is not a building, but a body of believers with a specific nature and purpose.
We had a wonderful Celebration of "All Saints Day"
We have Ladies' Bible Studies; men's Bible Studies; Group Backyard Bible Studies with Cookouts; and more!
We work in our Community to get God's Word Out to Everyone. We provide many community events throughout the Year.
Praise & Worship
We are the Church! We are out in our community sharing God's Word.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
OUMC provides many mission projects throughout the year in our area and beyond. Salvation Army, Homeless Shelter, Harbor House, East Elementary School-NP, Dress-a-Child, Share-a-Christmas, Food Pantry
Otterbein Faith Fellowship, Youth Groups for all Ages, Prayer Groups, Dartball, Java with Jesus, Choir, Easter Egg Hunt, St. Nick Breakfast, Back to School Bash, Family & Youth Movie Nights, Bible Studies
Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. Psalm 46:10 Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth! John 8:24 unless you believe that I am who I claim to be, you will die in your sins.
Romans 15:13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope. Jeremiah 29: 11 11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
1 Corinthians 13:4-5: Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 1 Corinthians 13: 13 So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
Prayer for the second Sunday of Advent.
Father, prepare our hearts to celebrate your birth joyfully! As we wait for your plan to unfold, give us the patience we need. Remind us of the peace we can access when we take time to still ourselves before you and remember that you are God. We thank you that you are both sovereign and gracious. Help us to find rest in the midst of what feels like chaos in our world.

"Ruth Gleans with Devotion"
"May the Lord repay you for what you have done. May you be richly rewarded by the Lord, the God of Israel, under whose wings you have come to take refuge"
Our "Heritage Members"
These members have over 50 years of membership & service to Otterbein UMC.
We are collecting paper products for the House of Hope, our local shelter for the un-housed. This is a year-long project.
Help us "Fill The Box" with office supplies & paper products. We are most in need of paper towels, toilet tissue, Kleenex, & stamps. We are also asking for AA batteries and copy paper.
We will also be adopting a family from our church for Christmas. We welcome gift cards & monetary donations. Either mark your envelope, or see Phyllis Pollock.
