Frequently Asked Questions

1142 Lakefield Road in Grafton, WI. Click here to see a map.
When do worship activities take place?
Worship services take place on Sunday mornings—currently our worship service happens Sundays at 9:30am. Beginning September 8th we will have worship services at 9:00am and 10:45am, with infant through high school classes happening at the 9:00am hour, and the OCC choir singing during the 10:45am hour with infant through kindergarten classes offered. Additional activities, choir rehearsals, and adult Bible study opportunities take place every throughout the school year.
Where should I park?
There's a parking lot on the west side of the buildings, and more parking is being constructed on the north side. Please feel free to park in any available space in the parking lots. We strongly advise against parking on Lakefield Road due to serious safety risks.
When should I arrive for worship?
Most people arrive 10-15 minutes before the service's scheduled start time. On special occasions, you may want to allow a little more lead time.
How long does a typical service last?
Services typically run 60 minutes.
Should my kids attend worship with me?
Kids are always welcome at OCC! During the summer kids attend the early part of the service and then are dismissed to their classes. During the school year kids can be dropped off before the service at their classes on the first level of Fellowship Hall (south building) but of course they are always welcome to attend the service with you if you prefer.
Am I welcome to take Communion?
Absolutely! We believe that the communion table is the Lord's table—not ours. So, like most Congregational churches, we have what is called an "open table." That means that you need not be a member of this church, or any church, to partake. The decision to participate (or not) is entirely between you and God. We typically celebrate communion on the first Sunday of each month, and on special days of the church year, such as Ash Wednesday and Maundy Thursday.
Where are the restrooms?
Restrooms are located on both levels of the Fellowship building, just a few paces from the sanctuary. A bubbler is located on the upper level of the Fellowship building, between the two restroom doors.
Is there fellowship following worship services?
Immediately following each Sunday morning worship service, "Coffee Hour" takes place in Fellowship Hall—usually accompanied by tasty treats! All are welcome...we mean that sincerely. So, if you don't need to rush off to another commitment after worship, please come sip, nibble, and mingle.
What about weddings, baptisms, funerals, & memorial services?
We are glad to host events and services at OCC and to support people in joy and in sorrow. To discuss the possibility of holding a special ceremony at OCC, please contact the church office - email@example.com or 262-377-3938.
Several times each year, we officially receive new members during worship services. Contact our Senior Minister, Jeff Larson, to discuss membership - firstname.lastname@example.org.
