Welcome to the SUMMER OF CONNECTION!
If you're new around here, we believe that Connection is Everything, and we were Created for Community, so we want to take advantage of the (fleeting!) Seattle summer months and make this the best summer ever. You'll find everything you need to know below, or feel free to email us if we didn't answer your question. Ready, set, CONNECT!
1) "10 at 10" Summer Services Start July 1st:
With the value of better connection in mind, we're having ONE SERVICE at 10AM for the 10 Sundays of Summer (July 1st-Sept 2nd) where our whole church family can worship together!
2) Family Services July 1st, August 5th, September 2nd:
Save these dates if you have little ones, because for 3 Sundays this summer EVERYONE (Including kids 1st grade and up) will be gathering in the main worship center! Our regular Childrens Ministry Program will be available for Newborn-Kindergarten only. We'll have lunch together after service - Food Trucks available or BYO Picnic! FREE Drinks & Ice Cream :)
3) International Sunday on July 15th:
Join the Serve the World team as we celebrate how God is gathering people from around the world to be one body here at OCC. This is a festival-style event highlighting special things from the cultures of members of our church family that will be fun and educational for the whole family!
4) OCC Park Parties:
We have 10 summer park parties happening all summer long across the Eastside - from Newcastle to Mill Creek and everywhere in between! The goal of these parties is connecting Overlakers with Overlakers who live in the same parish(neighborhood)! All Park Parties are scheduled on a Sunday at 5pm.
