October is known as "pastor appreciation month" around North America. Here at OEFC we give an annual invitation to bless our staff with a monetary gift at Christmas time, which we will continue to do. But we invite you to send a note of encouragement and appreciation to Rob, Dwight, Michael, Chris, Steve or Marion anytime!
Beginning in November, join Pastor Steve on the first and third Wednesdays of the month for a time of prayer and worship. Meeting in the Fireside Room at 7PM, no need to pre-register.
