The Churches of Christ in Christian Union

Our 2017 Advent Offering

Last year was our first experience of having an Advent Offering which replaced our February Sacrifice Offering. What a thrill it was to receive nearly $67,000! This offering helps in providing disaster relief when such events occur on our mission fields. It also assists in the operational costs. This past year funds from this account enabled us to send finances to Yemen for the Humanitarian Relief and just recently, to our churches in the Caribbean region due to the damage from the hurricane.

Our theme for the offering this year is The Way in a Manger. Truly, He is the way and the truth and the life… John 14:6. Let’s not hold back in sharing The Way with friends, neighbors and those around the world. You may not feel called to another country to share The Way, but we can all lighten the load of those who have responded to the call God has given them. Let’s work at making this offering the best yet! The goal this year is to raise $75,000.

Your gift will make a difference today!

OCU Launches New Bookstore

Ohio Christian University announces a new service to the community with the opening of The Connection, Circleville's premier Christian bookstore. The new two-story facility is located in the east wing of the Maxwell Center on OCU's main campus. In addition to OCU apparel and textbooks, The Connection boasts a large selection of books, bibles, cards, artwork, church supplies, and gifts.

"Being a part of the community and serving is what we strive for," said Dr. Hank Kelly, OCU Provost. "The Connection is a new way members of the community can enjoy our facilities as much as our students do."

The two-story addition to the Maxwell Center is located on the east side of the building and is easily visible due to its plate glass facade. The Connection is also equipped with elevator access and multiple locations to relax and enjoy a book.

The Connection is open from 8:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays.
