Care Ministries

BENEVOLENCE CARE

Benevolence Care is established to minister to the unexpected and urgent financial needs of the attenders of OCF as directed in Galatians 6:2 to “Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.”

An individual requesting assistance will need to complete an application and be open to possibly receive financial counseling. To receive an application, please contact Garee Gasperian.

DELIVERANCE CARE

Deliverance Care is the process a Christian enters into when suffering from demonization.  God and Satan are not equals. Christians are on the side of Jesus Christ who won the spiritual war in Colossians 2: 13-15. Demons are on the side of Satan who lost this war at Calvary.  Consistent victory over the world, the flesh and the devil should be viewed by Christians as normal rather than novel.

The approach we use is Controlled Confrontation Therapy (CCT), a step by step process for effective deliverance that has been utilized by many Christians to achieve real freedom from demonization.  If you would like more information about Deliverance Care, please contact Pastor Mark Stepp.

MEALS MINISTRY

We understand that life can get overwhelming and not having to worry about dinner can be a wonderful blessing.  Through a team of caring OCF volunteers, we provide meals to church members who could use them. Whether you’re ill, had surgery, welcomed a new baby, have a spouse out of town and kids at home, etc., we want to help!

Volunteers provide a complete meal and deliver it to the recipient. The meal can be store bought, homemade, picked up or just about anything! The meal does not have to be fancy or gourmet. We attempt to accommodate allergies and food preferences. We strive to work out a schedule that benefits the recipient while working with the schedule of the volunteers. If you would like to request meals, please contact Karen Gasperian.

WISDOM COUNCILS

None of us should have to face major life decisions alone. Here at OCF, we believe that we make better decisions when we combine our own knowledge with the wisdom of our brothers and sisters in Christ. To help facilitate the decision-making process, we offer Wisdom Councils to help you wisely navigate the sometimes challenging crossroads in our lives.

A Wisdom Council is a group of 5-6 mature OCF members who gather together one time to offer input and insight about a key decision in an individual’s life. If you would like more information about Wisdom Councils, please contact Marina Wallis.

    General Counseling – Life may get complicated when you’re facing emotional, relational, or spiritual challenges. Through pastoral counseling you don’t have to go through a struggle alone.

    Pre-Marital & Marriage Counseling – Marriage is a beautiful, lifelong commitment. In preparation for marriage OCF offers personal sessions with a pastor-elder and his wife prior to tying the knot.

Our counselors offer an unbiased perspective that brings Christ to the center of the relationship.
