Welcome members and visitors.  We are pleased that you have looked in on our web-site.

Did you know that Jesus told his disciples that it was "easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven;"  really?  Well yes and he also said that though, not with man but with God, all things are possible.  You can find that in the 18th chapter of the Gospel according to Luke.  If you are interested in the conclusion, or as Paul Harvey used to say, "the rest of the story" you will want to read the 19th chapter.

What you find there shouldn't really surprise you very much.  If God is willing to save a rich King like David he can surely manage salvation for a rich sinner anywhere in the world and at any time.  I expect that the traitorous, cheating tax collector who was the subject of this story was greatly surprised when salvation was declared to have been granted to his household.

this the sort of thing that we often talk about at Okeechobee Christian Church.  Members, bring a guest; visitors to this web site, don't wait to be asked, just come and join us.  Services are at 10:30 am on Sunday morning .  We also have a 7:00 evening prayer and bible study time on Wednesday evening.  The  Wednesday evening gathering is preceded by a shared meal and time of fellowship at 6:00 pm.



During the period of restricted activity ordered by the governor

We will not be having services during the Statewide emergency shutdown declared by governor DeSantis.  Please check in on this web page for church news.  We will be updating sermons and the blog on a regular basis.
