Your support of and participation in our ministry demonstrates that the church is the people and not the building. Even as our communities progressively reopen, we are grateful for the opportunity to bring ministry to you virtually.
Now, let’s get some encouragement from our Senior Pastor, as well as hear about two upcoming events where we need the full participation of the church. Watch the video below.
As Dr. Evans mentioned in the video, Impact Saturday is an all-day event on Saturday, June 6. During this event, our church family is encouraged to perform acts of kindness that benefit our first responders. Visit ocbfchurch.org/impactsaturday to discover ways in which you can demonstrate the love of Jesus Christ to the frontline heroes in our communities.
Beginning Sunday, June 7, OCBF brings to you four nights of A Virtual Family Vacation Bible School. We have exciting activities and programming for everyone . . . children, youth and adults. Visit ocbfchurch.org/vbs for more information.
