OCC Update
Message from Corey & Jack

We’ve all experienced it. Some of us embrace it. Some of us hate it. But one thing we know is that CHANGE is necessary for growth to happen. This Fall, we’ve got some exciting changes coming to OCC Students!

Starting Sunday, September 12, our student worship services are changing with Middle School happening at 9:30am and High School happening at 11am. We are very aware that this will call for some adjustments to schedules and maybe getting up a little earlier, but we believe this new approach is going to help us achieve our mission of Helping Everyone Find and Follow Jesus. This new approach will hopefully help us connect with students attending OCC but not involved in Student Ministry as well as create an easier opportunity to get new and visiting families connected.

One more thing…we’re adding a Wednesday Groups component that will start on September 15. From 6-8pm, all students will sit down for a meal together, have a worship experience, and then have the awesome opportunity to get into conversations with other students in a group setting.

It is through much prayer and conversations that we believe God has led us to these changes. We are excited to see what God is going to do in this next season and we hope that you will join us in prayer and participation. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to shoot an email to corey.willoughby@okolonacc.org.
