COMMUNITY LIFE

OP Elementary Thanksgiving: OP Naz is partnering with other churches in OP and the YMCA to assist 35 OP Elementary families this Thanksgiving. We will provide 'side dishes' for 15 of the families. The needed items can be found at http://tinyurl.com/ThanksOPE. These items need to be at the church by Thursday, November 16th. If you have any questions, please see Karla Christy. Thank you so much for showing love to our community!

OP Elementary is looking for volunteers to come spend 30 minutes with a student once a week.  Volunteers can come read with the child or eat lunch with the child - basically be a friend.  If you are interested in more information please see Karla Christy.

Candy for OP Elementary: If you have any leftover Halloween candy that you don’t want to eat personally, bring your candy to church and Karla will take it to OP Elementary. They will use it for assemblies and in the classroom.

Advent Decorating: Following the morning service on Sunday, November 26, the church will be decorated for Advent. If you are able, please stay and help prepare our worship space for the coming season.
