COMMUNITY LIFE

Ash Wednesday, February 14th. The season of Lent will be here soon! We begin our journey to the cross on Wednesday, February 14th with our annual Ash Wednesday service beginning at 7:00 pm. Dr. Josh Sweeden, Dean of Faculty at Nazarene Theological Seminary will be preaching the Word that evening. All are invited to attend this time of worship, so that we might begin the time of reflection, repentance and renewal together as God’s people.

District T.E.A.M. Day, Saturday, March 3rd, 7:30 AM – 1:30 PM at Olathe College Church. You will be challenged with relevant workshops for the ministries in which you serve and the world in which we live. Workshops are appropriate for all ages from middle school to senior citizen. Childcare is also provided for birth through 4 years old. If you would like to attend, please contact the church office at office@opnazarene.org by Tuesday, February 22nd if you would like to attend.
