The vision of our Adult Discipleship Classes is to apply Christ's Lordship in every area of life. Classes are organized by age/stage, but all are welcome to attend any class! Click the link below for the full class listing and descriptions.
Courageous, biblically-based relationships empowered by grace that lead to transformational intimacy. This is the goal for community at OMPC, and Life Groups are the primary avenue to experience this type of surprising community. Many groups meet on Sunday evenings during The R.O.C.K. (our Sunday evening kids discipleship program!), but other groups meet at varying times during the week. The R.O.C.K. and Life Groups will launch for the Fall on August 18.
Contact Chad Walker to get plugged into a group that's a fit for you!

The vision for Men's Ministry at OMPC is "No Man Left Behind." Whether you are just beginning to navigate the early stages of manhood (late teens/early 20s), single, married, or well-seasoned in life, we hope you will find your place here to be known, loved and challenged to grow in your walk with the Lord.
Check our Church calendar for upcoming men's events, and mark your calendar for our monthly Men's Final Fridays, breakfast at 6:15 am in the Gym on the last Friday of every month.

BATTLE FOR THE HEART
The Battle for the Heart process is different than most discipleship programs in that it’s not about giving you a formula to change what you’ve been doing (or not doing). The Battle is about discovering who you were created to be, as a man or a woman, in God’s Larger Story.
SENIOR ADULT MINISTRY
OMPC longs to be a place for people to connect, regardless of your age and stage. This includes Senior Adults! Join us Sunday mornings at 9:30 am for Adult Discipleship Classes -- the Next Steps Class (50s & 60s), Tyndale Class (60s & up), and Intergenerational Class are all great places to connect.
Sunday, May 19, we have our inaugural Senior Adult Ministry Luncheon "The Art of Aging".
We'll meet at 12:15 pm in room S-180. Dr. Howard Eyrich will be speaking on the Art of Aging. Cost is $15 for an individual or $25 a couple and includes lunch and a copy of Dr. Eyrich’s book, The Art of Aging. Click the link below to register!

Welcoming those who gather to seek grace at OMPC is vital as our church grows!
