CHURCH CANCELED FOR SEPTEMBER 24! We have seen a significant number of our congregants contract COVID over the past couple of days. To be cautious with our congregation, we have made the difficult decision to cancel church for this Sunday. We are receiving information that COVID has become very active in our communities, so we ask that you consider wearing a mask again if you are going out.
We look forward to rapid healing for those of us who have contracted COVID, safety for everyone, and a return to worship on October 1.
UNFORTUNATELY THE COFFEE PARTY HAS HAD TO BE POSTPONED.
But if you would like to support the volunteers travelling to Guatemala to help support the local people through the Breaking the Silence Network, you can purchase Just Us fair trade coffee, hot chocolate and chocolate bars.
Just fill out and return this OVUC coffee order sheet to the church either by emailing the filled-out Word document or printing and dropping it off by Monday, October 2. Your order can be picked up at the church on October 8 from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.

All are invited to an after-church coffee time following the worship services, which begin at 10 am on Sunday mornings. Coffee, tea, juice and water are provided with light snacks. Children are always welcome!
If you’d like to help provide some of the after-church refreshments, don’t hesitate to get in touch with the office so we can put you in touch with the chair of congregational life, Cheryl Sellsted, to coordinate. A big thank you to the Congregational life committee for all their hard work and dedication to making this fellowship a lively and active part of our ministry.
