Below are important dates for our OCC mission project.  We have also listed the Sunday School classes and the items they are collecting at the bottom. If your class would like to collect money and turn it into the office Jamie will purchase the items for you.

There will be extra OCC boxes in the FLC hallway starting in October that anyone can take home and fill. These boxes need to be returned by Sunday Nov 12th since we will deliver all the boxes on Wed Nov 15th.  Click here for more info on how to pack a box.
