Hei OiC Family,
Important announcement:

OiC and COVID-19

Update May 22, 2020: We are now meeting again. Click here to learn more.

Dear OiC Family,
This is a time in which we are all called to do our best to help the authorities control the spread of COVID-19.  We especially want to keep in mind and in prayer the most vulnerable with whom these measures will protect. 
Therefore, all Sunday Services and other OiC meetings, like growth groups, prayer meetings, etc, are cancelled until further notice.
We want to remain connected throughout this time, so we’ve put together several measures to do so:

OiC General Assembly

The whole year of 2019 has passed by and it’s time for us to meet again for our General Assembly. This is an opportunity to hear from the ministry teams, board and pastors as they share the highlights and challenges of 2019, as well as their plans and hopes for 2020. It is also when we get to review our budget for 2020, making sure that we are using our resources wisely and supporting our ministry teams as best we can. Finally, we want to provide some information concerning our process for moving from Bakkehaugen church to our new location later this spring.

  • Time: Saturday, January 25th, 10:00 to 14:00
  • Place: NMS office, Bernhard Getz’ gate 3
  • We will serve coffee and a light lunch.

We hope to see you there.

The OiC Board


Please note a few things about the next few weeks at OiC. 

  • Sunday, the 15th of December (THIS SUNDAY) service is at 11:00, not 16:00!  The congregation we share the church with has a special evening service this Sunday, so we are taking their morning service time. 
  • Sunday, the 22nd of December is our Christmas Service. It will be at our usual time, 16:00. There will be no Christmas service on the 24th or 25th.  

Here for Christmas?

Are you here for Christmas?   You don’t need to celebrate it alone!  If you are here for Christmas and would like to celebrate it with someone –either being hosted or hosting– please let us know!  Living abroad is beautiful, challenging and sometimes lonely, and all of these feelings are often magnified during the holiday seasons. We at OiC would love to connect you with someone to celebrate with, to highlight the beautiful aspects of living abroad, to love each other and to see the Body of Christ in action.  You can respond to this email, or talk with Maicon on Sunday if you’d like to host or be hosted.  It’s a lovely time to get to know others in the church.
