Mission Trip Heritage Tour this year promises to be an excellent learning opportunity for our Junior’s, and includes destinations that will lead to a deeper understanding of our nation’s development and history. The students are looking forward to learning new things, checking out new destinations, and spending time with friends as we study on the road. We will leave the evening of October 12.

We would like every student to be able to go and have some who are struggling to be able to pay for their trip. If you would like to help, you may make a tax deductible contribution by designating the funds go to Mission trip account and specify for "Heritage Tour." You may also contact the business office at OAA. It is a real blessing to be able to partner with our church members and we appreciate your involvement.   Contact: David Baldridge   208.258.5737 cell

Special Thank You

Outdoor Church and Social


I want to thank God for the beautiful weather and His protection. Thank you to the family & friends of those who years earlier sacrificed to provide such a beautiful park, like the pavilion. I received many words of appreciation from several of our church family, ranging from our youngest members to some of our oldest members.   Events like this require the work of many hands, but I would like to mention a few, who without their willingness to help, our experience would have been quite different. Thank you to Don & Irene Gilbert for hosting us at their farm. Storie Giddings & Jonathan Franco and Campus Ministries workers for the decorations, set up & tear down, church service and vespers, and moving the sound system to the Gilbert’s.  Leo Nash, his family and friends, for providing the horses to ride, supervising the horse activity, providing helmets and even walking and leading horses so even our youngest church family members could enjoy the horses. Leo & Sandy Nash for letting us barrow all the hay that was needed. Dennis Brinegar, Trey Beierle and all those that helped with the rope swing activities.  Donald Upson for his planning and leading out with Dan Griffith with the food transporting and set up. Thank you to the café workers for all they provided for our meals.  Jim Bieber Sr., Travis Pendergrass & George Robinson for driving their tractors and pulling trailers.  Jim Bieber Jr. for maintaining the church grounds so nicely.  Robert Swanson and the deacons for having a work bee the Sunday before to prepare the valley. Andrew Harris for his technical help at the bond fire.  The church family who brought brownies, cookies, fresh tomatoes and chili to make our time together so enjoyable.  Thank you social committee members for planning these events.  May we continue to make an effort for organized social events to have a greater appreciation for each other, God Bless!
