Our adult ministries create places for you to connect and learn, shaping the whole person through Christ’s love.

For All Adults: Community Groups

From its inception, the New Testament Church has involved communal life where ministry happens not just in public spaces, but also in private homes. Thus, we place significant emphasis on small group ministry. We pray that God will use these groups to build robust, discipling relationships within the larger body of Orangewood.

Community groups are small groups of 10-14 people who gather together in homes throughout the week.


For Men

All men at Orangewood are encouraged to participate in Band of Brothers, our flagship men’s group. Band of Brothers convenes each week for biblical teaching, small group discussion, and prayer. In addition, we have several smaller, elder-led groups that focus on intentional, directed discipleship for those who attend.

A weekly Bible study, called Band of Brothers, meets on Thursday mornings.


For Women

Our women’s ministry provides a place where ladies can gather to be encouraged and filled through the study of God’s word, learning to use their own gifts to advance God’s kingdom. We offer solid, biblical teaching and practical application led by our own members. We are passionate about connecting women not only to peers, but to women of different generations as well. We encourage women to use their gifts to serve each other as well as our local and international partners.

Three weekly Bible studies, following along with the same book of Scripture, meet on Tuesdays and Wednesdays during the spring and fall.


For Young Adults

Our young adults ministry creates space for young adults (both single and married) to build friendships while exploring the implications of the gospel for everyday life. Our young adults meet weekly in small groups and also get together for intermittent, large-group activities. 

Three young adult community groups gather weekly in homes during the spring and fall.


For Senior Adults

Our seniors ministry meets every Sunday morning at 9am for SALT, which includes worship, Biblical teaching, and regular updates from ministry partners around the globe. SALT edifies each member on an individual level— but it also provides a conduit to serve the Orangewood family through exhortation and prayer.

The SALT class meets on Sunday mornings at 9:00am in the Fellowship Hall. This class meets year-round and people of all ages are welcome to join!
