Support the Orthodox Christian Mission Center (OCMC)
This Great Lent, there are a number of ways you can support the Orthodox Christian Mission Center (OCMC)
- Dollars for Donuts: Mission Sunday is March 1 and we will have our traditional "Dollars for Donuts." At Social Hour this Sunday, place a dollar in the OCMC coin box for each donut you take.
- OCMC coin boxes will be handed out at Church School on Sunday, March 1st. They will also be available for everyone to take in the Narthex. Collect your spare change during the Fast and turn in your coin box on Lazarus Saturday (April 11) or Palm Sunday (April 12).
