Good Friday Service ~ Friday, March 30 ~ 7pm 

Join us again for Good Friday service on Friday, March 30 at 7pm, as we commemorate Jesus’ crucifixion. 


Join us for our Easter Services! 

Easter Sunday is April 1.  We will have a sunrise service at 7:00 a.m. on the front porch of the church, weather (and temperature) permitting. This is a great way to celebrate the bursting forth of new and resurrected life.  We will then meet for a Fellowship Breakfast at J&S Cafeteria at 8am, and return to church for the 11:00 a.m. worship service in the sanctuary. Please invite your family and friends to worship with us in our Easter celebrations.

Thrift Store Donations Needed!  

OUMC Thrift Store is in need of summer clothing, spring and summer decorations (seasonal and holiday), summer games and toys, DVD’s, tools, kitchen items and knick knacks.  Any and all donations are welcome and appreciated!


History Room

In response to the interest in preparing a History Room to preserve the historical records we are no longer using, we are eager to start this project.  Please share with us any major events, programs, stories, projects, and pictures.  You can place your items in a basket on the table in the back of the sanctuary.  Stay tuned as things come together.  It will be a fun way to share memories!


Let’s “Resurrect” our Garden!

Anyone interested in helping to resurrect our community garden, whether with labor, maintenance or just good ol’ advice, please contact Nancy Griffin or Nancy Vellano.  We’d like to set up a meeting for a planning session.
