If you enjoy being around people or enjoy knowing you are part of a larger effort while serving from your home, the Caring Ministry may be for you!
Small Groups help us connect and build relationships with each other at OVCN. They strengthen our faith, provide practical help in life situations, and encourage us to live out God’s purpose as we share and grow together in a small group setting.

We encourage you to join a small group at OVCN. Something uniquely life changing happens when we live out our core values in intentional community with one another. Experience the power of life-changing relationships.
The mission of Men's Ministry, to Love God – Love Others – Make Disciples, is put into action through monthly breakfasts and Bible studies. Activities such as golf outings, baseball games, "Steak-outs," and service projects provide opportunities to have fun and build unity. Most of us have similar hopes and struggles, and we value times of meaningful fellowship with other men who are running the same life race. By working, playing, laughing, and enjoying life together, we can hold each other accountable for living in a way that honors our Lord Jesus, and encourages one another to grow closer to Him.

The Prayer Ministry participants pray faithfully for the needs of our congregation. The Prayer & Care sheet includes items for continued prayer and praise.

Stephen Ministry is a one-on-one caring ministry where volunteer caregivers in our church are equipped to walk alongside a person in the midst of a painful experience. Jesus tells us to bear one another's burdens in times of pain and loss. A Stephen Minister does this by preparing to be the eyes, ears, hands, feet, and heart of Jesus. There are many among us experiencing loneliness, anxiety, depression, grief, terminal illness, hospitalization, loss of a job, chemical dependency, or family problems. Through this ministry, Jesus restores hope and brings healing to the brokenhearted. Experience the awesome power of God as He heals the lives of those in need.
