We have an amazing opportunity for the youth of OFH! On Sunday nights from 6:00pm to 8:30pm, Our Father's House is partnering with SouthPoint Church to bring our high school students a dedicated time of fellowship. This is a fab option for meeting kids from other schools who are walking the same walk you are and have the same questions. Make a new friend or five!

This fellowship is open to new believers as well as lifelong Christ lovers. The evening message is topical with scriptural backing. We help students understand the Bible and live it out in their every day lives. Change will forever be with them, but how they handle that change is what’s important and God is always with them through the change.

High school students and young adults (just out of high school) are invited for a bit of time outdoors, then sharing dinner together before transitioning into a game followed by worship and large group message. Afterwards, we split up into small groups for about 45 minutes. Small groups are split up as follows, 9/10th grade girls, 11/12th grade girls, boys small group, and young adult small group.


Jingle bells, jingle bells! I know, I hear's not even Halloween yet. But the retail stores are doing it so we are too! 

Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes are available for pickup in the lobby. You can return packed boxes starting November 10th with a final collection date of November 18th. Our annual shoebox packing party is Saturday, November 10th in the Sunroom from 6:00pm to 8:00pm. With Christmas music playing, we will share a potluck dinner and help the kids to write personal notes for the box recipients. As always, we will close out the evening with a prayer over the boxes before they head out for delivery.

The holidays are a tough season for many needy families. Things we take for granted like a good home, warmth, and food are often missing for needy families. H.O.P.E. is expecting to help over 250 households this Thanksgiving. We need your help to collect both canned and dry goods by Wednesday, November 14.

If you are interested in being a part of a particularly special blessing, we are in serious need of volunteers to help collate and deliver the food. This effort will take place Saturday, November 17 from 9:00AM to about 11:00AM at Church of the Ascension on Great Mills Rd, in Lexington Park.

Please help the needy this Thanksgiving with your contributions of FOOD, and/or MONEY, and/or TIME.

Ladies are invited to join together for a women's evening of worship, thanksgiving, and praise at Our Father's House on Saturday, November 17th from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Please bring a friend who is in need of fellowship and encouragement. Let's see what God might do. Snacks and hot cocoa provided!

Sugar, spice, and everything nice! It's time for our 3rd annual Dessert Auction to benefit family ministry in the form of kids camp and youth camp. Immediately following the service on November 18th, AJ Bussler will be dazzling us with her auctioneering skills. Bring your checkbook and skip the Thanksgiving baking.

But you know what this means...we need BAKERS! Pull out Granny's pie crust recipe, check the bag of the Nestle chocolate chip bag if you have to. We can't wait to taste what you've been up to. Sign up early in the lobby so our attendees can mark up the sales program before the auction begins!

Questions? Give B. Mashtare a call 240-808-1727. 

Please mark your calendars and set aside some time to bless our neighbors experiencing homelessness during this cold weather season. Our Father's House is hosting the week of Sunday, December 2, 2018, through Sunday, December 9, 2018.
