Venmo Available
OCCS has two Venmo accounts set up. Please specify what your donation is for when you make a payment. Also include your name if it is not clear from your Venmo username.
The first account is setup to give towards the building project. You may also pay tuition through Venmo. Scan the attached QR code or search 'Orange City Christian School.'
The second account has been set up to pay for TRIP orders. This can be used to pick up physical cards in the office. The preferred method for paying for eGift cards and reloadable cards is still online with a bank account or credit card. Scan the attached QR code or search 'OCCSTrip'.
Middle School Christmas Concert
A 5th - 8th grade Christmas Concert is currently scheduled for Dec. 17 at Northwestern College Christ Chapel. Given the latest requirements by the governor, we are not sure if we will be able to hold this concert as planned. We are working on an alternative which will allow the students to perform their pieces during the school day. We will record those performances and send out the links for everyone to watch. We continue to hope that we will be able to have this concert in person and we will keep you posted as we get closer to the date.
