"Messy Church" Event: Friday, November 2

     Families of all sizes want to do three things: worship God, enjoy dinner together, and have fun.  "Messy Church" enables us to do all of that.  On Friday, November 2, we will get together at 5:30 p.m. for crafts, games, and some "get-your-hands-dirty" fun!  That will be followed by a short worship service, then a sit-down dinner sponsored by our Christian Education Team.  Come and join us for this free, inter-generational event.   

Honor our Veterans with us: Sunday, November 11

     On Sunday, November 11, Orient Congregational Church will honor the veterans of the North Fork during our 10:30 Celebration of Worship.  All veterans and their families are invited.  Refreshments will be served afterward.
