What shall I return to the Lord for all God’s Bounty to me?
Dear OPC Family Members,
We often hear stories of how much people value our church and its missions.
· Worship inspires our members in their journey of faith.
· Peoples’ faith is nurtured by OPC studies, small groups, and warm community
· Children and youth have a significant place in the life of OPC.
· New members are warmly received by our church family.
· OPC’s local missions support foodbanks, homeless, and The Blessing Board and many others
· Funeral luncheons are arranged and served with loving care.
· People have welcomed “One Story at a Time” speakers.
· Homebound persons welcome the Deacon Visitation & the Holy Ground Ministry Teams.
· People in recovery from addiction or personal losses find in OPC a spiritual home.
· OPC’s national missions through the PDA help natural disaster victims
· OPC’s overseas missions support God’s peoples’ needs in Africa & South America
With your presence and warm community you shape the character of our church and your gifts bless people through the ministries and mission of our church. Thank you!
As you consider your gift for the coming year please note:
We are impacting people's lives with the Gospel - members, visitors, missionaries, those seeking wholeness
· Pledged tithes and offerings have remained relatively constant (not grown) for 2018 and 2019, although there
has been people who have increased their giving.
· Enlarging our impact on the community and the world in 2020 we hope to increase local, national, & world
missions giving to 8.5% of total contributions (currently at 7.5%)
· We continue to make major capital expenses such as the overdue roof repair and inside plaster repairs
These have been funded by the OPC endowment.
· Every gift is an acknowledgement of God's grace in our lives – we will do all that we do with God’s help
and with your generous contributions to build the Kingdom and spread the Word
We ask that you prayerfully consider increasing your pledge for 2020 by 5%. If you did not pledge in 2019 we ask you to consider a pledge as we continue the spiritual experiences and mission of Christ's Church. We believe a 5% increase in 2020 pledges will help us fulfill our spiritual and missional call to advance God’s love and caring in the world.
Please see below for ways to make your faith commitment by Sunday, November 17th.
Peace & blessings,
Your Generosity Team: Robin Gourley, Ralph McIntyre, Nicholas Kokales, & Steve Wilson

Through the continued generosity of OPC members our Mission work continues to provide funding and hands on assistance to those most in need. Our giving supports numerous efforts such as work in Niger, the Blessing Board down the street and other.
In addition we continue hands on work by providing meals for those in need and along with other churches and organizations assisting those in society who are in distress. We thank you for your current and continued support of our God's mission.
