Get Connected with OCV
The Church is not a building, a set of programs, or an institution. The Church is people, people with a vast array of hopes, hurts, talents, and interests. The church is me with you and you with me and all of us with Jesus. None of us can go it alone, even if everything in our culture programs us to want to be complete individualists, islands unto ourselves.
Rather than solitary islands, the Bible's primary metaphor for the people of God is that of a body where each part needs the other. (Even Jesus didn't do life alone!) At OCV our prayer is that we can walk further and further into this high calling. The reality is that God has already given His people all the tools they need to work as agents of His Kingdom in the relationships and places they encounter everyday. The only problem is that none of us--no individual or church--has everything we need to change our towns. This type of change takes Holy Spirit-inspired synergy. It takes all of us bringing the time, talents, and treasures that God has blessed us with and using them together. It takes intentionality. It takes plugging in.
If you think OCV might be the local community of believers where you would like to plug in, there are plenty of ways to get started.

We would love to have you join us at the Oil City YWCA for Sunday worship. Leave the tie at home (unless you really like ties!) and stop in for a visit one of these weeks. We'll have the coffee on for you.
We come together every week to worship through song, listen to Scripture, encounter God through communion, pray for each other, and encourage each other as we to be faithful over the long haul to Christ and to the people, places, and vocations He has called us to.
Our first worship gathering will be a 9:00 with NO OCV kids.
Our second worship gathering will take place at 10:30 with OCV Kids programming for the elementary class (4yrs to 5th grade) and an unstaffed nursery for any parents who need it. We will stream at 10:30.
Time: 9:00 AM & 10:30 AM
Location: 109 Central Ave. Oil City, PA 16301
Even though the disciples were quick to look past children Jesus never did. Kids mattered to Jesus, and they matter to us. We seek to provide a number of ways in which kids can encounter God within a safe and fun environment. We provide a fully staffed nursery for kids ages 0-4 and a Children's lesson during the sermon for kids ages 5-10. From Sunday School for pre-K and lower elementary-aged kids to special events like our Princess Party, OCV is a good place to be a kid.
