For the month of March the items OCC are collecting are toys for boys (balls, cars, trucks, marbles, card games, etc.). Please put your donations in the box in the foyer near the bulletin board.
The Great Lakes Mission for the OCC bus trip to Charlotte, NC is now taking reservations. The dates for this year’s trip are Nov. 27-Dec. 2. It is a ministry opportunity for you to help in the next step of getting the shoe box gifts prepared for the boys and girls.

See Doris Heindel or Larry Eversman for information on this mission trip.
