Bridging the Divide

“If another member of the church sins against you,
go and point out the fault when the two of you are alone.
If the member listens to you, you have regained that one."

Matthew 18:15-17

All of us bear wounds and scars from things others have said or done to us. And, if we are honest with ourselves, we have hurt others too. As people that are still a work in progress, it is not a question of if we will hurt each other, but when.

To those who are more comfortable avoiding conflict, Jesus says go. To those who want to punish people who have hurt them, Jesus says seek resolution.

To all of us, Jesus calls us from retribution and into the ministry of reconciliation.

Scripture passage for this Sunday:
* Matthew 18:15-17
* Philippians 1:12-18a

This worship service is produced through the combined efforts of Hope Presbyterian Church at Lake Nona and Oviedo Presbyterian Church and we pray that God will use it to bless people far beyond our congregations. We are very grateful to all who contribute to these services.

Please share them with your friends and families.

Update on Resuming In-Person Worship

Dear sisters and brothers,

In an abundance of caution and facing logistical challenges, our session postponed the target date for resuming in-person worship until November 15th. We were previously looking at October 11th for testing outdoor/drive-in worship.

We know this may be disappointing news. We are very sorry.

Your health, and that of your loved ones, was our first concern. Yes, this is a very cautious approach. However, while holding off a couple weeks is disappointing, the possible consequences of someone becoming infected are terrible.

Welcome to Oviedo Presbyterian Church

We are a family of Christ followers known for our love of Christ, love for one another, and reaching out to those in need. We value authenticity above formality, and honest relationships above token handshakes. We don't pretend to be perfect, and we don't expect that you are either.

If you just want to get lost in the crowd, we may not be the right place for you!

A church is not a building or something you attend, it is something you become a part of. If you want to be more than a number, to love and be loved, to grow in your faith, and to share your gifts and talents, we invite you to check us out.

Whether you are a seasoned saint or a questioning seeker, there is a place for you.

Our Sunday morning worship has a touch of tradition but without being stuffy. We worship in new songs of praise as well as hymns that have withstood the test of time. We preach and teach the Word of God in honest ways that connect with real life and real people. Like God’s love, we minister across the generations, rather than targeting just one. We believe that worship is something that we participate in rather than just watch.

Some of our older members dress in suits or dresses while some of the youth wear jeans. If you wear something "corporate casual" you'll fit right in. Who you are is more important that what you wear! Come as you are, we do!
