New Easter Events, Sermon from Pastor Bart, Worship Song "Away Team" & FREE wallpaper - Isaiah 35:2

Welcome to OCC online! 

We hope that you've been walking through the bible up to THE CROSS as the Holy Spirit reminds us of the significance and impact of the sacrifice God made of His Son, Jesus Christ on that day in history - as a reminder that our lives were bought at the price of blood.  Blood that washes us as we live our imperfect lives, gives us hope, renews and restores lives and that we will never take that for granted.  The bunnies and eggs are cute, chocolate delicious etc, and we enjoy these things as tokens and traditions but never ever to replace what Easter really represents.  Getting together with family, sharing good food, but not just that - let's share the GOOD NEWS which is life changing, that Jesus is RISEN - He's alive and living and our hope is in Him.  We wish you a blessed Easter weekend.

A little note - we welcome some of our church family - Ken and Marg Smith, coming home to OCC this weekend for a visit!  It will be wonderful to have you here.  And also "a little bird" told me we can expect to be welcoming our church family members Dale and Florence Archibald home in the very near future.  Dale and Florence have been ministering down south across the border for several months and we look forward to fellowship and hearing about their RV ministry and adventures when you return!

Today we have the following new editions to our site:

  • Audio Sermon for Sunday, April 17th - guest Pastor Bart from Park Drive, Oliver on this page
  • Worship song Let it Rain - "Away Team" guests from Park Drive, Oliver - under the "Music" Tab

  • New FREE scripture wallpaper to decorate your computer - under "The Gallery" tab
  • "Shirley's Quilts" commentary under the "From The Heart" tab
  • New Events - upcoming events for OCC and community, Easter Parade etc!
  • New Tab - OCC Children's Church - moments with our little ones


THE GOOD WORD - words of wisdom by Pastor Joseph Fernandes will return next week!  He's enjoying some quality time visiting with his Mother who visits from Toronto!

We hope you enjoy this inspiring audio sermon which was delivered by guest Pastor Bart from Park Drive, our sister church from Oliver.   There may be a slight overlap in the middle part of the sermon because of technical issues - please forgive me.  We thank Bart and the "Away Team" for their faithful support and ministry to OCC.  Y'all are family!
