Weekly Scripture Meditation:
We are inviting the Church as a whole to participate in reading and meditating on the lectionary texts for the upcoming Sunday. The texts for Sunday, July 21 are as follows:
Luke 10:38-42; Psalm 15; Genesis 18:1-10a; Colossians 1:15-28
The ministry of greeting is huge. Welcoming regular members and friends as well as first-time guests is a huge responsibility. As a greeter you can set the tone for the rest of the morning. You will need to give people a welcoming hello, hand out a bulletin and assist in the collecting of the offering. Please see the sign-up list on the board in the foyer.

Christmas in July
We kicked off the new year for OCC. Thanks for all the stuff you have provided toward this November’s 200 shoe boxes we are going to pack. There is a Christmas tree in the foyer with tags for items like, 10 wash cloths. Individuals are invited to take a tag and buy those items which we are short of.
Our focus this year will be older girls. They are part of a neglected group when it comes to shoe boxes. So, we want to do our part and fill in that niche.
Between now and November we will hold several work days that could include either sewing or other pre-packing events getting ready for November.
Each week in July we will show a video about OCC.
General items still needed: washcloths, soap, flip flops, hats, clothing, pencils, pens, markers, colored pencils, erasers, pencil sharpeners, notebooks, hairbrushes or combs, Q-tips, and band-aids.
In a tradition that Dawn Burch started, we will be showing a children’s movie in July. On the 12th at 6:00 p.m. the movie for the evening will be “The Lorax.”
“A 12-year-old boy searches for the one thing that will enable him to win the affection of the girl of his dreams. To find it he must discover the story of the Lorax, the grumpy yet charming creature who fights to protect his world.”
Vacation Bible School
Save the date! This year we will be holding a Vacation Bible School for children ages 4 to 12. [Younger children may attend with a parent or adult guardian present]. The dates will be Monday to Thursday, July 22 to July 25, from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Christine Quintana at 583-4623.
Summer Prayer Events
This Summer we will hold three prayer events. We just had our June prayer time. Here are the following fourth Wednesday dates [July 24, August 28]. We will meet at 7:00 p.m. each evening and have times of singing, guided prayer, congregational reading and response and prayers of the people. The format will remain the same each session. Please mark your calendar or electronic device. We’ll see you in July.
Mission Outreach [8.24.19]

This event is scheduled for Saturday, August 24 from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. They will need some 40-50 volunteers to carry out this project. This is a first for them and a first for us.
