27 June | UP – IN – OUT

Posted by occwebsite
27th Jun 2021


We are now meeting in-person as well as on-line (we will continue to offer our service on-line).

  • Sometimes we feel stressed out by what we can’t do, and by what seems to be inconsistencies in government gathering regulations.
  • Some are feeling frustrated that they can’t get the hair done, or travel as freely as they would like.
  • Sometimes we get upset with some of the posts we see on social media.

But in these confusing, wearying times, we are confident that in the midst of all of this, God is with us. We remember that no matter what anyone says, no matter what anyone posts on social media. We remember that…

  • as followers of Jesus,
    we are called and equipped to be different and live differently in our world;
  • as followers of Jesus,
    we are called and equipped to live lives that are filled with and empowered by God’s Spirit;
  • as followers of Jesus,
    we are called and equipped to be signposts and movie trailers, pointing to what the Jesus life is like.
  • as followers of Jesus,
    we are called and equipped to live in Christ, free to love, free to be kingdom people.

As you prepare to watch our service video, we encourage you to take a few moments…

  • get your coffee or tea, settle in, be still…
  • take 2 or 3 deep breaths… in and out… breathe,
  • invite the Lord to make himself present with you as you watch – he is with you – it’s just that often we are not aware that he is,
  • Read Luke 6:12-19 as come to the service together.


Here is the service for Sunday, 27 June.
Today we are using some worship videos from Brooke Nicholls.

Here is the Eventbrite link to register for a backyard gathering

Here is the event post with the dates & times



In this new way of being the church, we don’t practice giving by placing our offering in a basket as it is passed. OCCers are generous people. Thank you for your gifts.

  • Many give online – etransfer or paypal
  • Others mail or drop off cheques

You can find all the ways you can give here.
