Mission and Outreach
Serving others…Following our Servant Savior,
we give our time, talent and resources to help bring fullness of life to others.
How are we called?
A boat is safe in its harbor. However, for a boat to be a boat and fulfill it’s purpose in life the boat must leave the harbor and sail the seas.
This analogy is one way of explaining how OPC looks at the ministry opportunities that happen outside of the local church. We believe that we are all called to our own form of ministry … those who teach will teach, those who preach will preach, those who exhort will exhort (paraphrase Romans, Chapter 12).
While we are always committed to the ministry, fellowship and faith sharing in our local church, we are equally committed to “leave the harbor and sail the seas”; to leave our local church setting and aid where aid is needed, befriend the friendless, and love all unequivocally.
