Children's Ministries (Nursery through 5th grade)
We seek to equip kids to know Jesus, grow in their faith journey, and show God's
love through serving others. We use the SparkHousecurriculum, incorporating
participation in part of the worship service, singing, interactive lessons, and
high-energy games and exchange. Click here for upcoming events and words
for parents. Contact Martha Piesko for more information.
Youth Ministries (Mid High and High School)
Our Middle Schoolers and High Schoolers learn about what a commitment to Jesus Christ looks like and work together to express their faith to one another and the wider community through group study, youth activities, and community events. Each year, our 8th graders also go through Confirmation class. For more information, click HERE.
Our chancel & youth choirs, bell choirs and special events throughout the year provide quality vocal and musical talent in a spirit of joy and praise. We welcome new participants all year long. For more information on current projects, contact Bruce Snyder, our Director of Music Ministries. Click here for more information.
If you need a ride to a medical appointment or other essential outing, the Deacons may be able to help. Contact congregational nurse, Emily Grakul for more information.
We never outgrow our need to learn God's word and grow in our dependence upon the Lord. Through Christian Life & Learning bible studies, small groups, prayer groups and intentional social gatherings and mission efforts, adults of all ages have dozens of opportunities throughout the year to grow in their faith and strengthen their relationships with other OLCC,Pers. To learn more, click here or contact John Vermeulen.
OLCC,P is a Stephen Ministry congregation, which means many of our members and friends have completed a 50-hour training course in peer counseling, listening, and referral. We currently have more than a dozen active Stephen Ministers who meet regularly with care receivers to provide confidential ministry. If you would like to learn how to become a Stephen Minister or would like to meet regularly with a Stephen Minister for a listening ear, supportive prayer, and companionship in times of struggle or transition, contact the office.
