Feb 21 – Philippians 3:1-4 – confidence in?

Posted by occwebsite
21st Feb 2021


As followers of Jesus, we are called to show and demonstrate love in the world
As followers of Jesus, we are called to be salt and light in this world – primarily online and via phone right now.
As followers of Jesus, we are called to point people to joy, confidence, hope and life… and more than that we point them to Jesus.
As followers of Jesus, we are called to grow in Christ, individually and together, in koinōnia – that shared life in the Spirit that includes:

  • reading and thinking through Scripture,
  • prayer – both praying for and praying with,
  • serving the community – both the OCC community and the wider community around us, and,
  • caring for each other in love.

If you don’t really know Jesus, we trust and pray that as you connect, read, watch, you will be drawn into a relationship with Jesus.

If you are not yet a follower of Jesus, we pray that you will honestly seek and ask questions… watch for and sign up for online ALPHA this spring.

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

  • settle in, in stillness,
  • 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 a lot of the time we are not aware that he is.
  • prepare your heart to listen and receive
  • Read Philippians 3 as you enter into our time together.


Here is the service for Sunday 121 February.
The Adams are leading us in worship today.

CNOY: Coldest Night Of the Year

In this time of lockdown, there is still needs in our city. CNOY in Orillia raises funds for the Lighthouse. While there is no walk this year, there is a virtual walk (i.e. walk on your own schedule).

The date for this year’s walk was yesterday 20 February 2021. But you can still donate.

Here’s our team page: OCC


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
