Looking and Alarmed
Disciples of Jesus who see life from the earthly perspective
often find themselves looking for Jesus in the wrong place
and alarmed by the reality of His true work.
• Dutiful & Confused
• Unexpected & Impossible
Confident and Commissioned
Disciples of Jesus who see life from the heavenly perspective
embrace the reality of the resurrection
and anticipate the work God has for them.
• Witness & Affirmation
• Presence & Fulfillment
• Mission & Restoration
Terrified and Silent
Disciples of Jesus who see life from an eternal perspective
overcome their fear and confusion
and enter the story of God.
• Odd & Open-ended
• Realistic and Inviting
Easter Sunday Principle:
Disciples of Jesus expect the unexpected from God
and share the goods news of the gospel with others.
- Respond to the reality of the resurrection by placing your faith in Jesus for salvation.
- Respond to the reality of the resurrection by taking the call to discipleship seriously and pursue Him wholeheartedly.

Fellowship Easter Offering
Easter is a celebration of hope. God is giving us the opportunity to be His hands and feet and to share the hope and Good News of the gospel through sending OCC shoeboxes. This year Fellowship’s goal is 6001 gospel opportunities with 2400 of those being packed during our church wide packing party in September. Today we will be taking a special offering for the September packing party. To cover the cost of all boxes, including shipping, will take $38,400.
Please join us in continuing that legacy of HOPE by participating in our Easter Offering.
