Texas Baptist Men
Several of the men in our church participate in this Convention-sponsored group. TBM work focuses on many different areas of ministry, but they are particularly well-known for their work in disaster relief. TBM provides hot meals for volunteers and victims of natural disasters, as well as providing assistance in clean-up and recovery.
Longview Habitat for Humanity:
OHBC provides a work crew for Habitat for Humanity on the 3rd Saturday of each month. We usually work 8am - noon. Work crew size varies based on the amount of work available for that day, but they usually ask for 3 to 4 volunteers from OHBC. A couple of other churches provide workers on that day also and there are usually future home owners working their sweat equity hours.
Our Benevolence team meets every Thursday from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm in the Fellowship Hall to meet the needs of individuals in the community. The Team meets with those in need to determine how they can best serve each family. They pray with each person and meet the physical needs of everyone that they are able provide for.
Youth Choir Tour and Mission Trip
Every year our student ministry travels to a city to provide missions work and ministry support. We will be travelling to New York City in June 2014 to work with the New York School of Urban Ministry (NYSUM). Contact Stanton Nash if you are interesting in joining the trip.
