Dear OHC Family and Friends,
We are now entering our very special three week emphasis on 3-4-ONE@ 5! This three Sunday emphasis gives us the opportunity to highlight three wonderful areas of our ministry and rejoice in His blessings over these last five years. Let me remind you that we are asking you to be present three straight Sundays beginning this week. October 17, we will have a special time of communion in each service with a baptism service in the second hour. Mark your calendar and prepare your heart for three great weeks in His house.
The following Sunday on the 24th you will not want to miss a very special service planned to honor our new members and a special video that captures many of the beautiful moments of ministry.
On the 31st we once again open our hearts to an area of ministry that God has richly blessed throughout these five years which is our Global Missions work. Obviously, the culminating Sunday of our focus is about us going beyond ourselves to make a difference so please note the following ways we can be involved:
1. Get tickets for the Global missions luncheon on the 31st—they are available this Sunday for 5 dollars each. We will share some of the exciting plans for 2011. We also have a very special missions time planned for our children called Miles of Pennies that I’m sure they will share with you after Sunday school this week. We also have a special missions time for our kids during the luncheon with Ms Gayla.
2. Local missions outreach occurs on Saturday the 30th at Norcross Cooperative Ministries (NCM). This is a day of outreach from 9:30 AM to 12:30 PM -check the bulletin this Sunday for more details. We’d love to see you join our students and missions team.
3. Fall food drive for those who are hungry! Over the next three weeks we are collecting groceries for those in need through NCM. Please make plans to bring a bag or 2 of groceries to help those in need.
As you can see, these are wonderful days at OHC! We also rejoice that 11 new members have joined in the last 4 weeks. He is moving in our church.
Ladies, this is a final shout out related to the special time of fellowship planned for you on Saturday, October 16th, at our Mug and Muffin event. This special time will bless you as you gather together at 10 AM in the lobby. This is a great time to get to know many of the wonderful ladies that call OHC home. You should have received an email this past week giving you the details. If you have any questions let us know. I’m sure many of you are going to fix wonderful treats for all to enjoy. This event has been planned in response to the survey we took with all of our ladies that indicated a desire for informal fellowship!
Don’t forget….3-4-ONE @ 5 begins this Sunday!
See you then,
