To the OCBC Congregation:

OCBC will be temporarily moving our weekly worship service to an online format. We would like to conduct a broad "test" of the service this Sunday, March 22nd at 10:00am. Chris will give a short message and we will also share prayer requests from the congregation. We plan to offer the live audio stream of the service at www.ocbc.info as well.

Please check your email for details on how to participate.

This test will help us improve the quality of our services in the future and help us work out the kinks. We hope you are able to join us this Sunday!

OCBC Family,

Due to the increase in cases and the upgraded government mandated restrictions for the general public in response to the COVID-19 Corona Virus, the elders have determined that the only legitimate and responsible action for our congregation is to suspend all services at the chapel until further notice.  This Sunday's service is cancelled.  We will try and get something set up so that on future Sundays we will be able to share God's word and worship together via live feed.  Ben is coordinating the technology necessary to accomplish that for us.

Your elders and deacons will remain in contact with each of you during this extended mandated isolation period.  You will be contacted, if you already haven't been contacted, by someone in our chapel leadership.  We would ask you to please reach out to others during this difficult and trying time.  We have been commanded by Jesus to love one another, not just when it is convenient, but through these hard times as well.  It is now that the love and unity granted us through God's Holy Spirit should shine, and each of us in our little church family has a role to play in that.  Look for ways to encourage and support one another in prayer and in action.

The state has closed Restaurants and bars, schools and many public gathering locations until further notice.  Some forms of transportation, like cruise ships, have been temporarily eliminated, others may follow.  State government is requiring the public to keep gatherings to less than 25 people, while the federal government has reduced that number to 10 people or less.  They are anticipating that the numbers of infected persons will double every seven days without the implementation of these necessarily intense new restrictions.  If you are over 60 years old, the recommendation is to stay home and limit your potential exposure as much as possible.  Use good hygiene and pay attention to these new restrictions.  Do your part to stay healthy and not spread this virus any further.

Who We Are -

We are a group of Christians that meet together regularly to learn of God, to worship Him, to pray to Him, and to fellowship with each other. We are being changed to be more like Christ. We do not require people to become like us, rather it is our desire to help them become more like Him.

We are convinced that truth is absolute and that some doctrines are absolutely essential. However, we recognize that on some areas of Biblical interpretation, godly people will differ. Our unity is based on our relationships in Christ, not on uniformity of belief. We are people of oriented, not program oriented. This is because "the Church" is a group of Christians, not a building not a ministry. The Church is to meet the spiritual needs of its members. That is our focus and we are willing to consider anything that will help us do that better.
