Youth & Kids
Let me simply start off by saying thank you for considering to visit Orange Church of God-Embassy of Grace. It will be an honor to share in worship with you. Neither your time nor your presence will be taken for granted. And whether you were invited by family or friends, are in search of a church home/pastor, or were merely curious about our worship services, I believe it’s no coincidence that our paths are crossing. Always know that you are welcome here. Look forward to seeing you soon.
Pastor Demetrius “Demo” Moffett
Our Beliefs & Values.
We’re all about Jesus Christ. We believe that Jesus is who he said he is, the Son of God who came and died for our sins. So, if this is your first time in church, we hope that you get to know Him as we do, because He’s truly what life is all about for us!
We’re all about people. Every person who walks through our doors is important to us, so if you ever feel like just another number, we’re doing something wrong and I give you permission to tell me about it.
We’re all about relationships. We hope to cultivate and grow meaningful and positive relationships between one another, while striving to cultivate and grow in our relationship with God. Christianity is all about a lifestyle, one that gives us the liberty to live life abundantly. We exist to build the Kingdom of God through meaningful relationships, with God, Jesus Christ and you.
“If you’ve got a specific prayer request, please take the courage to submit it via our prayer request tab. We’d love to pray for you, so I encourage you to make use of this opportunity and allow us to serve you in this way.“

What do you offer for children on Sunday morning?
Children are a special part of our congregation and we value them as full participants in the life of our church. Sunday morning worship classes for children (1st through the 12th grade) begin at 9:30 a.m. with Children’s Time review at the end of the worship service. All children are dismissed to participate in their own time of singing, prayer and Bible learning known as Axios (see below for more information on this program).
What is Axios? What will my child do there
Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, The fruit of the womb is a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, So are the children of one’s youth. Psalm 127:3-4 Axios in the Greek means deserving of, worthy of. Orange Church of God-Embassy of Grace, treats children as a Masterpiece, not a mistake. Axios is a program which tells Bible stories using multi-sensory tools and offers children the opportunity to form responses to the stories out of their own life experiences. Children learn to prepare themselves and quiet their minds in order to enter into a relationship with God. Axios Kids learn how to talk with God and learn stories from the Bible in a way that they can understand. Children receive Lunch after morning worship. “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of God.” We would love the opportunity to partner with you in training up a child in the way they should go.
