"REDEMPTION ACCOMPLISHED" - ACT 4 
This fall, we will continue our "Story of the Gospel" Bible and Pizza Night, starting Saturday, September 28 @ 6pm. Please 
RSVP so that we can get a head count for food. Childcare is provided. 

As before, we will start off with some pizza and fellowship. After, we will gather to learn, discuss, and reflect on Act 4 of the Gospel Story, drawing from the book,   The Drama of Scripture. Elder Sam Kwon, will serve as the principal lead for these gatherings and facilitate discussions informally, in both large group and break-out group settings.

Our Fall Schedule: Saturdays on 9/28, 10/19, 11/6 (6:00pm - 8:30pm)

SHUTTLE DRIVERS NEEDED

As our church campus parking spaces are filling up on Sundays, ODPC leaders (pastors, elders, deacons and other volunteers) will be parking their cars off-campus, across the street, to free up spaces. These leaders will be grateful to have shuttles pick them up and drop them off from off-site to our church campus.  


We are recruiting drivers who can commit to volunteer 30-minutes, before and after services to drive shuttle mini-vans. If you are available and able to serve in this capacity, please email: harry.choi@odpcec.org.  Thank you for your support!
