The Orchard Christian Church is a brand new church being planted here in the Emmett Valley. “Sharing God’s grace so that hearts grow deep in love for Christ and rich in love for people.” This is the mission statement for The Orchard Christian Church. This is core statement on sharing their beliefs. Ben and Telah moved here from Utah in July of 2013. They were contacted by the Intermountain Church Planters Association to help plant a church. Ben and Telah were both raised as “PK’s” Pastors Kids, they plan to follow in their fathers’ footsteps and raise their children with the same beliefs they were raised with. They are both extremely excited to be teaching the word of God to friends, family, and strangers.
They are a faith community, Bible-based church pursuing God's purpose in this generation. The church is made up of local people of all ages and walks of life. “Our goal is to care for our community in such a way that people will be open to experiencing the amazing grace of God” states Ben McClary, Lead Pastor.
They strive to grow a healthy and vibrant community of faith that is positive, supportive, relational, and rooted in Jesus’ teaching about how to enjoy life as God intends. “I have come in order that you might have life—life in all its fullness.” –Jesus (from John 10:10).
This wonderful church offers opportunities for our community to connect with God in a relaxed and informal worship service setting, and for people to help each other grow personally and spiritually. The church offers Sunday morning classes for kids, newborn to fifth grade and four life groups that meet Monday through Friday.
The Orchard Christian Church meets at Carberry Elementary School located at 12th and Sub Station. Worship and Sunday service is from 10:30-11:45 a.m. every Sunday morning. “We invite you to come be a part of this brand new church,” says Ben McClary.
Their official “Grand Opening” month is April. They have invited everyone and anyone from the community to be a part of their church family from the very beginning, when EVERYONE is new.
Ben loves to hear feedback from the community and encourages everyone to visit their Facebook page at www.facebook.com/theorchardchristianchurch and their Website at www.theorchard.cc. “We are looking forward to making lots of new friends here in the months and years ahead”-Ben
For 60 years, the Idaho Youth Ranch has provided opportunities for Idaho’s youth and their families to overcome life’s challenges. That legacy continues in Emmett, where greater community involvement is at the forefront of store operations.
“The Youth Ranch is about kids and we want to support the kids in our community as best we can,” new Store Manager RoxeAnne Crawford said. “We’re looking to be more community involved and visible.”
The Emmett Youth Ranch Store opened its doors in 1994 and has been a mainstay on Main Street with local options for clothing and shoes, furniture, housewares, toys, books, and a variety of other gently-used goods. They celebrated the store’s new Chamber membership with a ribbon cutting on March 5 during the community’s First Wednesday celebration.
“One of the reasons we had our ribbon cutting on First Wednesday is because we’ll be participating in First Wednesday events. We’re going to be involved in Huskie Blue Fridays and we’ll have more participation in Harvest Fest and Cherry Fest,” RoxeAnne said.
Every donation made to the Idaho Youth Ranch, from cash to merchandise, goes toward the non-profit’s mission to serve Idaho youth. There’s the main ranch, located near Rupert, Idaho, where young people benefit from counseling services, animal therapy and classes for drug and alcohol dependency. The Anchor House in Coeur d’Alene is a residential facility for teen boys. The Hays Shelter Home in Boise offers help to runaways, homeless, or victims of abuse or neglect. The organization also provides family counseling, adoption services and family support.
“We’re not just a thrift store. We support and take care of hundreds of kids,” RoxeAnne said.
If you haven’t been to Idaho Youth Ranch’s Emmett store, it’s worth a trip in just to see the floor-to-ceiling bookcases stocked with paperback titles. There’s a room full of furniture and a big selection of housewares. The toy section has been updated and brightened, men’s shoes have been moved to the men’s department, and women’s and children’s clothing and shoe options have expanded. “There’s not a day that goes by that we don’t bring in new items,” RoxeAnne said.
The Emmett store is one of 28 stores in the state. There’s even one in Ontario, Ore., and a second Nampa store in the works. The Emmett store features “two front doors” – one at 129 E. Main St. and one in the back. Hours are Monday-Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. For more information, call 365-6493.
