Holy Week

A lot of more liturgical churches (pretty well all churches
are liturgical, some are just more formal about it)
talk about Holy Week.

We don’t use that language because this week is not more Hoy than other weeks – but we do focus more on this last week of Jesus’ life leading to the Cross & the Resurrection.

  • Palm Sunday (25 March – 10am)
    We celebrate Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem and the subversiveness of the kingdom of God.
  • Maundy Thursday (29 March – 6pm)
    We gather for a pot-luck meal together (sign up at the welcome desk at OCC – or let us know you are coming) and share together in the Lord’s Supper as part of our meal.
  • Good Friday (30 March – 10:30am)
    We join together with several other churches in town at Calvary Pentecostal (375 Westmount Dr. N.) to reflect together as the larger body of Christ in Orillia.
  • Easter Sunday (1 April – 9am | 10am)
    9am Continental Breakfast
    10am Easter Celebration

Reading Gospels during Lent

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

download it here: Lent Readings

or get it on our facebook page

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
  • kingdom issues: excuses we make; paying taxes; “you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God”; “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. Love your neighbor as yourself” #gospel #MT 22 #lent

Orillia Women’s Connection

Finding I Am” study


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.
