Abortion and Jesus


This Sunday’s message at OCC is a biggie.

My prayer has been that over this message a complete covering of GRACE would flow. That gentle, Biblical TRUTH would cover all.
And that at the end of the day, LOVE would win out.

I’m VERY excited about this weekend.

Three different stories will be shared, each one completely unique, as are all stories regarding this issue. In each story, the love of Jesus absolutely overwhelms.

This issue isn’t about politics (that was last weekend). This issue is about caring for the most fragile and frightened in our society. This issue is about being a voice for the voiceless. This weekend is about bringing JESUS into the very center of the discussion.

Please join us.
Please bringvite a friend.
Please pray that Jesus moves powerfully to hold, to guide, to heal, to convict, and to cherish.

If you don't live near, feel free to check out occ.org to track with our current Hot Topics Message Series. Blessings.

Awesome job today Mike...

Not only this week but last week as well... :)

The testimonies were awesome as well, kudo's to those people for being so brave and sharing their stories dealing with unplanned pregnancies....

I am so thankful our church is finally letting go of fear and tackling these issues...

I've been praying for years that our church would be the church that didn't just talk about issues but finds ways to love people dealing with those issues, and I realized today that God is answering not only my prayers but the prayers of many current overlakers as well as some who have moved on...

It's exciting to be part of OCC right now!

This was a powerful message! I am sharing it with my mom who volunteers at a crisis pregnancy center that encourages life. This message will sharpen them and encourage them. Thanks Mike!
