Service and Fellowship Groups | External
These groups certainly provide fellowship for the group members, but each focus on
serving God’s Kingdom outside of our chuch.

serving God’s Kingdom inside of our chuch.

time in fellowship AND service, you would be more than welcome to join the team.

Co-ed Softball

Each year men and women of ORLC lace up their cleats in order to do battle on the
diamond. Actually, they just want to have some fun, and get a little exercise at the same
time. Whether you’re a pro or a bush-leaguer, you’re welcome on our team!
