Welcome to Orchard!

Happy New Year! As I cheered these words at 12:00am, January 1, these words came roaring back to me along with huge smiles and loving embraces. I have to admit -- New Year's Eve felt more emotional this year! Why do we celebrate New Year's like we do? Perhaps it's because we enjoy stepping into newness. Something in us yearns to cross over from the old into the new. 

Personally, I'm looking forward to what the new year will bring. I believe we're going to have many opportunities to cross from the old into the new in 2015. This can be quite exciting . . . and yes, this can also be a bit frightening. Yet, as those who cling to a living hope in Christ, we can dare to live courageously!

Come and join us as we adventure through the coming season, encouraging one another to take new steps of faith along the way. We will open this year with messages to strengthen our resolve to follow our Lord Jesus and receive the newness that only He can bring.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at curt@orchardvalley.org or staff@orchardvalley.org or call us at (408) 634-6822

Let's get off to a great start, shall we?
