Youth Ministry: Grades 6-12
2017 Enrollment/Consent Form
All participating Youth at OCC must submit the Enrollment/Consent form at the start of each school year. This helps us ensure your safety and receive updated information on any medications, allergies, insurance information, and emergency contacts. Forms are due Sept. 30!
During the school year, we meet most Sundays in Fellowship Hall at 10:00, where 6th-12th graders will experience "Ministry: Praise, Prayer, & Proclamation" (MP3). Rev. Rob Fredrickson and a team of terrific adult volunteers facilitate a high-energy, fun hour engaging both young hearts and young minds.
Pilgrim Fellowship (grades 6-12) generally meets on two Wednesday evenings per month, 7:00-8:30 in Fellowship Hall. There are snacks, devotions, zany games, and thought-provoking discussions—both topical and biblical.
Eight 90-minute class sessions + four community service projects + four church involvement activities = confirmation at OCC! We learn a lot, but there's plenty of fun, too! It all culminates with each student writing a unique, seven-sentence personal credo statement, and having the opportunity to "own the covenant" and join OCC as a full-fledged member. The 2017-2018 Confirmation class will begin in the fall.
Community Service & Missions
Middle and high school students are truly leaders within OCC’s overall approach to outreach. They spearhead our sponsorship of a child through Compassion International, take part in the CROP Walk, participate in World Vision’s 30 Hour Famine, clean and sort donated books at the Next Door in Milwaukee, lend a hand at the Hope House food pantry, go on mission trips to Pennsylvania and Mexico, and much more.
