Get Involved with our Ministry Teams
What is a Ministry Team? Unlike Committees which meet to follow an agenda, complete a task, and then go home, Ministry Teams take involvement a step further by first supporting and ministering to one another, and then accomplishing a particular ministry task. Our Ministry Teams are led by Elders, but open to anyone in the congregation. Teams meet monthly and share dinner each quarter. Read the descriptions below and see which one God may be calling you to join. As believers, we are all called to ministry through Jesus Christ!

Mission & Outreach
We support over 40 mission efforts around the world and in our own backyard. From medical mission work in Chad and education work in Russia and Thailand, to Cru chapters on local campuses, and practical service to neighbors in our local community, there are many ways to express the love of Christ through OLCC,P. To find out how you can get involved, contact Steve Orr, our Mission & Outreach Team leader.
Just some of the Christmas presents that Deacons delivered to needy families last year.
Deacons provide compassionate care to those in need. Among their many ministries, Deacons visit the lonely, provide meals for those who are recovering from surgery or have had a baby, help with transportation and welcome newcomers to the church. If you would like to help Deacons provide practical support to others in our congregation and local community, contact Jim Hakala, the Moderator of the Board of Deacons.

Through Christian Life & Learning Groups for adults, we offer a range of bible studies, events and resources to enhance spiritual growth and explore the intersection of faith and everyday life.
