What is an OC Group?
An OC Group is a small group (usually 8–12 people) that meets regularly for the purpose of connecting with others. The core aspects of a group are prayer and pastoral care for members in the group. Groups are generally centered around learning, service, recreation or common interests.
Groups are led or facilitated by leaders who have a heart for the Lord and heart for people. Some meet in host homes while others meet on the church campus. They meet two to four times a month and can include social events, ministry and outreach.
In these groups you will find a safe place to develop deep friendships and live out the Gospel. We love, encourage, care for and pray for one another as well as hold each other accountable and comfort one another. Together group members grow in the knowledge of the Lord and obedience to His Word.
Our desire is to see everyone at Otterbein connected to others. We want to encourage you to become actively involved and experience all that God wants to do in and through you.
