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.

 

July Quarterly Summit

Next Sunday, July 28, we will hold our Quarterly Church Summit following the morning worship service. This is a time for the Board to report to the congregation our plans, hopes, health and ongoing ministries. Please plan to attend. 

 

Vacation Bible School 

Vacation Bible School will be held this coming week [July 22-25]. It’s for children ages 4 to 12. [Younger children may attend with a parent or adult guardian present]. Each day the program will run from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Please keep this event in prayer: pray for teachers, for children, for parents, for God to have his way in everyone’s hearts. 

 

Summer Prayer Events

This Summer we will hold three prayer events. We just had our June prayer time. Due to VBS we will shift the July prayer event to the following week, July 31. Here are the remaining dates for prayer [July 31, 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]

We have an opportunity to serve God through helping Westminster Presbyterian Church in their Hunger Outreach. 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. This outreach serves a growing need within the community. More information to follow.
