During Lent, which begins on Ash Wednesday (14 February this year) we are encouraging you to read through the Gospel accounts, from the time of Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem through to the end of the Gospels.
One chapter a day (not including weekends) will get you through all the texts before Easter.
You can pick up the reading schedule
at the welcome desk at OCC in person

Here is a summary of pastor Mike’s twitter posts on these texts during lent
- We are reading the #gospel accounts from Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem. Authority and a new way of doing things #MT21 #lent

Mark your calendar for Feb 14/15!
That’s when our Winter Bible Study will begin, and this year we’re doing “Finding I Am” by Lysa TerKeurst.
What is the deep cry of your heart?
The ache in your soul that keeps you up at night?
The prayer you keep repeating?
Jesus not only cares about this deep, spiritual wrestling, but He also wants to step in and see you through it.
Join Lysa TerKeurst on the streets of Israel to explore the seven I AM statements of Jesus found in the Gospel of John. Through this interactive, in-depth study we will be trading feelings of emptiness and depletion for the fullness of knowing who Jesus is like never before.
