ORPC regularly and intentionally gears its fifth Sunday worship services to an increased outreach emphasis. Worshippers are encouraged to invite their non-Christian contacts to these services where the gospel is presented faithfully, clearly and simply through the messages.
Creative Outreach Ministries
The purpose of COM is to create various channels of contacting and befriending non-Christians, and eventually inviting them to church and to explore Christianity through one of our quarterly discipleship groups.
The strategy is to build lifestyle bridges between the church community and the society, beginning with our colleagues, neighbours, relatives and friends, in a non-threatening environment and programme. Below are two of COM’s flagship initiatives:
Initiative 1: Movie Outreach Ministry
Every half-yearly, ORPC screened a Christian-themed movie that raises everyday life issues. After the movie, there is usually a time of refreshment when ongoing conversations and witnessing can take place in a relax environment.
Initiative 2: Gospel Lunch/Dinner
Christmas and New Year are times when family members and friends gather to celebrate over meals. These occasions are good opportunities for sharing the gospel. Members simply host a meal either at home or in a restaurant; ORPC provides a church leader to do a brief gospel talk; host informs his/her guests in advance; and we will flow along.
Discipleship Group Ministries
A Wonderful Relationship…
The greatest relationship one can have and enjoy is with Jesus Christ. Getting to know him, love him and trust him is a journey of discovery. Most of us begin our journey and are still walking on with other fellows.
Here in ORPC, we wish to JOURNEY with you one step at a time. What did Jesus do? Why do we need him? How can we trust him? What is the Bible about? How then shall we live? We invite you to journey with us.
A Seven Months Journey…
A discipleship group is started every quarter. Below is a journey guide:
|Christianity Explained||Unlocking the Gospel||5 weeks|
|Lessons on Assurance||God’s Promises to live on||5 weeks|
|The World We All Want||Unlocking the Bible||7 weeks|
|Lessons on Christian Living||God’s Principles to live by||8 weeks|
Through our Under-One-Roof Ministry and small groups, ORPC engages in regular outreaches to senior citizens and children in the community. These outreaches usually take the form of organised events such as birthday celebrations, handicraft works, outings, Bible studies, etc. Sharing takes place through caring.
