Adult Lenten Study at OPC - 2018
Lent has traditionally been a time for contemplation and study. This year at OPC will be no different!
Two study groups will be offered. Feel free to join one or both groups, and attend as you are able. It is ok to miss sessions, and please attend even if you haven't been able to keep up with the readings
. Also feel free to bring a friend...OPC membership is not required!
Books are available in the church office,
If you are able to pay the cost of $10 per book, it will help defray the church's expense and would be gratefully accepted. OPC bought books at a discounted rate and is unable to return them so we are hoping to sell all that we have.
