dnow14_bannerD-Now Weekend, November 7 - 9

Disciple Now is a youth weekend retreat held at homes of church members.  Youth will learn how to be disciples of Christ under this year’s theme, “Follow.”  They will hear how to be complete followers of Christ, not merely “fans.” 

The weekend is going to be an exciting time for our students and for our church.  We would love to get our church family involved in the action!  Visit the sign-up booth on Sunday to see how you can volunteer.  You can also email Michael or Dannie or call the church office.  We need prayer warriors!  Click here for our 4 week prayer guide for the weekend. 

OCC Collection Center Volunteers are needed from November 17 - 24. Volunteers must be 13 or older, and will be receiving and processing shoe boxes, packing cartons and wrapping empty boxes. Read More

Prayer Corner

This week meditate on . . .  Romans 15:5-7

“May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had, so that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God.”  (NIV)

As we grow in faith and come to know Jesus Christ better, let us strive to maintain an attitude of loving unity throughout each day toward other Christ-followers.
