Sunday Service

We are so glad you could join us today (1.16.2022) for worship. All of the Sanctuary Worship services are available through Livestreaming on Facebook @orlcjax and on our website at

I have chosen to share a sermon series entitled, “When God’s Time is Right”.  No one should underestimate the importance of these historical references to the life of Jesus Christ. He truly was born as the Babe of Bethlehem but lived for 33 years in this world as the Savior of humanity. We will meet him in the temple when He was twelve amazing the Jewish leaders with “his wisdom and His answers”.  We will meet Him when he was baptized in the Jordan River “to fulfill all righteousness” for us sinners. We will witness his first miracle at a wedding in Cana when he changed water into wine. We will listen in on his first sermon at the synagogue in Nazareth when his words of fulfillment of the scriptures enraged the people who thought that he was blaspheming God’s name. There will be other episodes in his life too including the Sermon on the Mount and concluding with the transfiguration when “his appearance became like lightning” and he shown with the glory of heaven. Before we take this journey, let us remember the joyous Christmas tidings which the angels brought to weary shepherds and later wise men led by a star who came to worship the newborn King.  Pastor Bill Reister

Second Sunday after Epiphany

This weekend we continue the sermon series for Epiphany, “When God’s Time Was Right.” Our text is John 2:3-11 which begins, “When the wine ran out, the mother of Jesus said to him, ’They have no more wine…His mother said to the servants, ’Do whatever he tells you…’” The theme for our consideration is, “When In Time of Need….” (Lessons from a Wedding).

The Baptism of Our Lord


TODAY we remember the baptism of our Lord Jesus Christ who as the sinless Son of God did not need forgiveness but was baptized in our behalf “to fulfill all righteousness.’  We continue the sermon series for Epiphany,  “When The Time Had Fully Come.”  Each week the text from an appointed reading includes the word “when” and tells of a significant event in the life of Jesus. Today the text for today is Luke 3:21-22.
