April 11 – John 21

11th Apr 2021


We celebrated the resurrection of Jesus last Sunday.
This week, as a province, we are under a “stay-at-home” order.
We are limited in how we can gather.

I remind us of what Paul said in Philippians 4: we are to think about those things that are… true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent, and praiseworthy.

It is so easy to get sucked into the criticisms, complaining, sarcasm, and apathy that seems to be the default of much of our world.

As followers of Jesus, we are called to be and live differently in this world.
As followers of Jesus, we are called to live lives that are empowered by God’s Spirit and so show what the Jesus life is like.

We encourage you to take a few moments as you prepare to watch the video

  • 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,
  • prepare your heart to listen and receive.
  • Read John 21 as you enter into our time together.


Here is the service for Sunday 11 April.
Stan & Judi Coates are leading us in worship today.
Pastor Brent’s message is from John 21

The study notes and all the other messages in this series can be found on our sermon page.

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.

  • Some of you give when you attend a service (there is an offering box)
  • Many give online – etransfer or paypal
  • Others mail or drop off cheques

You can find all the ways you can give here.
