There are many ways to get connected at OCF! We are happy you are here!


    Why Small Groups? Because this is where real life happens. It is where we connect with God, each other and our community. It is how we learn to be more like Him. It is where we serve each other, our community and our world. Click here to view the summer trimester catalog.
