Our Services

What are services like?
Both services are the same each Sunday, however each Sunday differs slightly in the musical portion of the worship service. We have 4 different worship bands and a traditional choir. We feel that this gives a perfect balance for our mulitgenerational congregation.

What is the community like?
Warm and Welcoming! We believe that "church" is more than just the one hour service on Sunday mornings. We offer a wide variety of groups and activities so that everyone can find just the right place for themselves. We offer a Parenting Group, Men's and Women's bible studies, Youth Group for middle and high school students, knitters group, children's choir, and many activities and special events to gather as one body of Christ. We also have 4 worship bands and a traditional choir that offer plenty of opportunities for those musically gifted attenders to get involved! We are also a strong missional church that serves locally and globally.

What if I'm not a Christian?
We welcome everyone, no matter where they might be on their personal faith walk. We have a strong congregation that will walk with you and help you along the way. Our Elders, Deacons, Church Staff and Pastor are here to support you whether you have been a Christian for 50 years or just learned that there is an amazing God who loves you!

I have been the pastor of Orchard Community Church since 2008 and I absolutely love this great family of faith. I graduated from Westmont College in 1991 with degrees in Religious Studies and Sociology. I got my Masters of Divinity from Princeton Theological Seminary in 2000 and my Doctor of Ministry in 2013 from Fuller Theological Seminary. During Seminary as part of my pastoral training I served churches in Scotland and New Jersey. Since then I have served churches in California. I have a wonderful wife named Melinda and three great daughters, Bailey, Anna and Ella. I like to read, play guitar and spend time at Lake Tahoe.
