UPDATED NOV 20
Dear Chapel Family,
This weekend, we are wrapping up our message series on John 1 as we look at how to "Keep away from anything that takes God's place as the center of our lives". As part of this service, we will also put our words into action and do something we have not done in years!
What's New this Week?
1. Last chance for OCC drop off this weekend!!!
This weekend is your final opportunity, so please make sure to return your OCC shoeboxes THIS WEEKEND to one of our services.
All shoe boxes will be shipped shortly after the services to their different destinations. Therefore, Shoeboxes cannot be accepted after this weekend.
2. Christmas Service Times
Thanks to the 600 people and families that have already pre-registered for our Christmas Eve Services. If you have not had a chance - Please make sure to talk to your relatives over Thanksgiving and register as some of the services are starting to fill up.

3) 60 Christmas Luncheon
We are excited to let you know about an upcoming 60 Christmas Luncheon in Sandusky (C3) on Thursday, December 3 from 11am-1pm. Donna Gassett will be our guest speaker, sharing her father’s story (Bompa) and comparing him to the biblical character of Caleb. Since it is the beginning of the Christmas season, we will sing a few Christmas carols, and then enjoy a boxed lunch from Blue Ribbon Catering. The cost for a catered lunch is $10, no charge for veterans. You will pay at the door. CLICK HERE to let us know if you are coming!
