It is that time of year to start thinking about Christmas. Please pick up an OCC box or two, as well as labels and packing instructions, from the OCC tree in the Worship Center and bring the full boxes back as soon as they are completed. Let’s see how quickly we can fill the tree up with full boxes. All finished boxes must be returned to the church by Sunday, November 12, 2023.

On Tuesday, October 31, 2023, we will be setting up in four neighborhoods (2 Stockton locations, The Gardens, and Archer’s Cove in Springville) to hand out candy, popcorn, and promo items as we share Christ with our community. We would love to have 2 more locations to set up in. Not only do we need candy donations, but we also need volunteers to help at each location. Candy donations can be dropped off in the designated bin in the Commons Area. To volunteer to help, sign up either at the Info Desk, online (SIGN UP HERE), OR call the church office (205-661-3722).
