Stories

Michael Hernandez

After two months at The Orchard, I finally decided to take the needed leap of faith that I’ve been questioning since the day I decided to accept...

John and Joyce Koh

We look forward to building new relationships and communities during the beginning years of this congregation.

Don and Marcia Crutchfield

Since we are fairly new to the area, we are excited to meet and fellowship with others from The Orchard in the Vernon Hills area.

Joe and Rupa Wellington

God has laid a clear burden in our hearts to share the good news of the Gospel of His Son Jesus Christ with others, especially, the multicultural community in the suburbs.

Neal and Lisa Mrstik

Only He could coordinate all of the events of the previous nine months that led us to move near Vernon Hills. 

Shohei Suzuki

God…comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.

Max and Erelah Tonegate

There is something remarkable about being around students that understand the Gospel. There is an uncorrupted simplicity that constantly reminds us of God's love for us all.

Rena Lovell

For some time before this happened, I had been praying for a closer walk with Jesus, that my life would reflect his presence in it. It never occurred to me that widowhood would happen to me and that God would use it to answer my prayer.

Josue and Laura Perez

For years, I felt God nudging me to get better connected to the church, but I made no effort. Last year God presented the opportunity to use my professional background to serve the church; I could no longer ignore God’s nudging.

Jerry and Janet Taylor

However, it was the welcoming words of the people and the worshipful music that felt inviting to me. Janet was drawn to the solid Bible teaching right away. Both of us have gotten involved in serving.
