An Important Note From Mark and Alisha
Well, I never thought I’d be writing a post like this on the OCS 8 Year Anniversary! Weeks ago I had put together a splashy celebration post, but in light of times like these, today it doesn’t seem right.
Instead, please know we’re praying for everyone’s health and safety, for God's provision for all who must alter their daily routines, and for all the churches having to adapt to disruption in church attendance. During this time, we also wanted to update you, our churches and ministries:
- Work on 3.0 continues uninterrupted. The Website Builder 3.0 is still on track for wider Beta Invitations to start by the end of this week—yes, THIS week. We want to get this right for you, so thank you for your patience!
- Don’t forget that you have many communication and church management tools already included and available right now as part of your annual price. Please take a moment to review our site or your dashboard for the tools and features ready right now to help you communicate with and manage your church.
- We’re still here to help and answer your questions. And since we’ll be spending even more time at home, we'll have plenty to do in the weeks ahead with the remainder of the tools that will have their own 3.0 upgrade.
On a personal note, it’s been nice to see so many more folks in our neighborhood out walking and enjoying our warmer spring weather. Our typically quiet streets are alive with children playing basketball and riding their bikes. While we’re already pretty adapted to working from home, we’re facing in Idaho the same things as everyone else. We’re doing our best to stay healthy, adusting our schedule to this new normal, and we pray the same for you.

P.S. We've had more churches ask about online giving due to having to switch to online-only worship services. If you’re already with an online giving provider, that’s great! You’re ready to go. But if you’re currently looking to get set up for your members to tithe online, we can help you get going in 3 to 5 business days. Please check out our Online Giving page for more details.
