One very important thing to know; we are a “SCENT FREE” Church.
Many people are extremely allergic to perfumes, colognes, aftershaves and other scented products.
Please refrain from wearing them during your time here.
Thank you for your consideration!

We are collecting items to fill shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child in the box in the foyer. Check out the brochures in the foyer or the OCC website for suggestions.
