FREE Scripture Wallpaper, a Book Draw and Mother's Day at OCC!

If you are blessed with a mother, we hope you had a special day with yours - or honoring her at least.  Perhaps you were pampered yourself?  At this time its also our calling to think carefully for those moms who might be a single mother, or a widow with no children nearby.  Perhaps you can think of them today, as you read this, and though the official "Mother's Day" is over, in the name of Christ Jesus, wouldn't it be nice if you were to do something kind for them today? 

This week's blog is on the short side - here's what we have for you:

  • Book Giveaway - last week to get your name in for the draw
  • From the Heart (tab at top of this page)  and article called "STAND"
  • Photo - Moms of Osoyoos Christian Centre 2011 (OCC Photos tab)
  • FREE Scripture Wallpaper - John 6:35

Book Description - Jesus came to give us abundant life. So why are so many Christian women living with worn-out faith, struggling just to get by? What if there was something more? What if we could be set free from worry, fear, and the constant cycle of searching for significance? The Faith Dare is a 30-day challenge for women who are tired of ho-hum living and want to break the pattern of self-reliance and people pleasing by putting their trust in God alone and learning to live to please him. This energizing book will change a woman's focus from her moods and attitudes to living in the power of God's Word. It will encourage her to take the next step and begin to live out real faith in her real life.

To win this book, please send us an email at occwomenonline@gmail.com or leave a comment here and we will enter you into the contest. We would love to add you to our newsletter mailing list so mention it if you are interested and we can do that. Signing up means we will send you a notice via email each time we update the content here on the blog (about once a week) so you will be the first to know what's going on at OCC (current and upcoming events), benefit from some positive messages and even download FREE scripture computer wallpaper each week here. We will draw a name for this book on Tuesday, May 17th. Please, send your friends here to put their names in! Men - don't think this is not for you too - surely you have a mom, wife or friend who would love this for a gift! 


There will be no sermon posted this week, nor a "Good Word" from Pastor Joseph but stay tuned for next week!
