Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus (I Thessalonians 5:16-18)


Our next OEFC congregational meeting originally scheduled for May 25 is being moved to Monday, June 22, 2020. This move is being made to hopefully allow us to meet in a gathered manner for our leadership elections (Elders and Finance & Property Committee), Lord willing. If restrictions are still in place, we will hold a virtual meeting.
