State of the Church
Good news! We will have three ways to worship at OUMC beginning November 1st! Opportunities to worship are: Facebook live (both live and recorded), in person in the fellowship hall, and in the parking lot via FM transmission.
To join the FM radio transmission, tune in to 99.1 prior to the beginning of the worship service at 10 am. We encourage worshippers to “gather” in their vehicles in the parking lot behind the church and to arrive a few minutes early in order to receive a bulletin and a greeting.
As planned, we will be meeting in person in the fellowship hall beginning November 1st. We have made every effort to organize the room and the service to minimize the risk of disease transmission, but we all must recognize that any time we are in the presence of others who are outside our household members, we place ourselves at risk. It is up to each of us to prayerfully consider our decision to attend in-person worship.
