The Church is hereby informed that there will be a Quarterly General Meeting on Sunday 7th July 2019, immediately after the service. Hence there will only be ONE SERVICE for that day starting at 9.00am. All registered members are expected to attend.

All Men are kindly requested to remain behind after both the first and second services for a short briefing on the outcome of the meeting held on Saturday 15th June 2019. This is regarding the Paving Project and its Relevance to the master plan of the church.

The FTN Volunteers have been deployed to their various schools around the country and most of them have settled well. We thank the OBC Family for their support both financially and for the food which fed the volunteers during the 3 weeks of training. Please continue praying for the volunteers during this time.

The Sunday school is in urgent need of teachers. We have a shortfall of at least four (4) teachers at 8 am service and at least three (3) teachers at the 10am service. We request church members to prayerfully consider joining the ministry. Male teachers are especially encouraged, you can contact the following: Stella Mzumara 76179631 or Leya Musunga 71629793

The Sunday school will be having an outreach to the less privileged children in our community at the end of the term and are therefore requesting the children to donate children’s toys, clothes, tinned food and cash donations to this cause.
