Church Happenings

water challenge!
Two weeks ago we were challenged as a church to give up buying coffee, tea,  sports drinks or soda for just ten days, and to donate the money saved to  help build another well. This Sunday we are receiving the money saved…thank you to all who have taken part! And thanks to the anonymous donor who committed to double all contributions!

children’s ministry update
Church of the Outer Banks is blessed to have many children in Sunday School each week.  We have many teachers and volunteers from nursery-8th grade serving in this important ministry of our church.  Currently there are vital needs for teachers in first and second grade and nursery.  We ask that you prayerfully consider serving along with us.  Please contact Julie Jones, coordinator at or 330-687-2171 for questions or information.

community groups
The women’s group got off to a great start with Beth Moore’s Study on the book of Daniel.  There are more course books available…do join us on Tuesday evening! The men’s group continues to meet on Thursday evenings for a great time of bible study and fellowship. Both groups meet at 7.00 p.m. at the church office.

sunday morning discussion group
The 9:30 Sunday morning discussion group will review passages in The One Year Chronological Bible. One purpose of this group is to share thoughts and insights by email as we read through the daily assignments. We’re grateful to Justin Tillett for his leadership in this project. The list of readings is available from him at
