Hello Beloved Community
Spring is in the air and that means so is planting season. Plants need a good foundation of soil to start their growth. For Christians, our “soil,” our foundation, is Christ. Christ nurtures us and supports us. Just like a plant needs nutrient rich soil to thrive, Christ gives his children every possible nutrient we would ever need: Peace, Love, Encouragement & Wisdom… and His supplies are unlimited. Plants grow towards the light. They long for the warmth and strength that only sunlight can give. The Bible is our sunlight and as children of God, we should also lean towards the light, His Word, for guidance, and strength. Last but not least, plants need water to sustain them. I like to think of that much-needed water as fellowship with fellow believers. God didn’t intend for us to grow alone, but to be there to encourage each other in Christ.
OCC is gearing up for a 31-week series entitled “The Story.” The Story is God and humanity’s story in chronological order. It is a wonderful way to read the major stories of the bible as a novel. We invite you to join us as we walk through God’s story. Books are on available for order. The Story begins Sunday, March 10th.
