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.

Sunday Mornings

Sunday Worship

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.

We would love to have you join us for Sunday worship. Leave the tie at home (unless you really like ties!) and stop in for a visit. We'll have the coffee on for you. ​

Time: 10:00 AM

Location: 1801 W 1st St, Oil City, PA 16301

OCV Kids

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. 

OCV Youth

The middle school and high school years are some of the most formative in a person's life. Opportunities and big decisions abound. OCV Youth attempts to help students in grades 6-12 navigate this important season of life with their hearts and minds open to following Jesus and loving others. (Oh, and by the way, there's always food and lots of fun!)


OCV Youth meets at the Oil City YWCA on Sunday nights from 6-7:30 and is led by Ted and Anne Curran.
