Picturing God's Work Among Us

Photos help us capture significant moments in our life together. They remind us of the good things God has done in our church. They tell the story of our church to our friends and guests.

Help Us Capture More

You're invited to send us your photos. When you're at our services, events, and small group meetings, snap pictures. Photos of people are the best. You don't have to be a professional.

To make it easy on you, all you need to do is email them to our photo account.

Cheers to I Heart Old Towne Orange for this time lapse and drone footage of the 2018 Orange International Street Fair.

It Is A Privilege To Lead Sovereign Grace Church

Leadership Retreat 2018 is in the books.

God met our leaders as they engaged in a marathon 12-hour meeting this past Saturday. Thank you for sending them and praying for them. May God bless our ministry in Orange, Santa Ana, and beyond this coming year.

A big thank you to our brothers and sisters at Trabuco Canyon Community Church for hosting the retreat.

Patio Takeovers In Old Towne Orange

Old Towne Orange has no shortage of great places to eat. And any given Sunday after church you can find members of our church building community over lunch (the picture above is case in point).

Don't Waste Your Lunch

It's tempting to race home after church each Sunday. Kids are hungry and tired. Adults are hungry and tired. We get it.

But the lunch hour on Sunday is an opportunity to make connections and deepen friendships. Capitalize on it. Invite someone to lunch. Find a group that's heading out. Invite someone over to your house for lunch. Use those couple hours after the service to love one another (John 13:34) and show hospitality (Rom. 12:13). It pleases God and it strengthens the church.

We Said "Good Pie" To Good Friends

SAYING GOODBYE IN FAITH

Christian, Leah, and their daughter Cana are relocating to Northern California. On Wednesday, their small group hosted a "good pie" party to send them off with our affection. We are sad to see them go but trust that the Lord is at work. May He use them to serve His purposes in their new city.

We Want To Tell Your Story

We love Sundays because the church is all in one place. We are serving. We are singing. We are ministering to one another. We get to see it and experience it. What a joy.

But being a Christian is a full-time job. You are serving and representing Jesus all week in your homes, workplaces, and neighborhoods.

We Want To Know About It

We want to know how you are serving Christ the other six days of the week and tell your story on the blog. This will encourage us and bring glory to God.

If you're willing to write a paragraph or two to be shared, you can find instructions and submit here. If you want to see an example to get inspired, check out Rachel's story.

Thank You For Sharing Your Life In Christ With Us

Eat Lunch With Us This Sunday

This Sunday is one of our regularly scheduled plaza invasions. If you’re planning to eat lunch then you are invited. Following our worship service, we will head to Plaza Park for lunch.

Plan to either bring your lunch with you to church, purchase take out at any of the restaurants in Old Towne Orange, or take advantage of our world famous Buck-O-Slice Pizza. If you're our guest, pizza is on us.

We'll have blankets to sit on but please feel free to bring folding chairs. Tell your friends this is the most delicious Sunday to visit Sovereign Grace.
