GO . GIVE . GROW

What will Olympia City Church be in 2017?  What will be the stories we tell at the end of the year?  What do we need to start doing today to end up in the right place tomorrow? We think there are three words that help paint a picture of what we hope 2017 will be for OCC.  Remember, when we say church we mean the men, women, and children that make up OCC.  We say this because OCC is not a place but a people on mission to make disciples who make disciples.   So we want to be a people who GO, scattered in CityGroups as you follow Jesus in loving God and loving others.  We also want to be…

Sunday in Review // Mission

Like most words, the word mission can be interpreted many ways.  Mission can be a thing, it can be a place, it can be an activity, or it can be a statement. Jesus was asked by a lawyer one day, “What is the greatest commandment?”  Jesus replied by saying, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.  This is the first and great commandment.  The second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself” (Matthew 22:37-39).

Sunday in Review // Community

The book of Philippians has been an absolute joy to walk through.  From the gospel to community, we have been reminded that ultimately Jesus’ story reshapes our story.  We took this statement a step further as we looked at Philippians 2 by saying: Jesus’ story reshapes community.
