Occidental Community Church Family,

PSALM 100:1-3
1. Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.  2. Serve the Lord with gladness; come before Him with joyful songs.  3. Know that the Lord is God.  It is He who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture. 

The month of October is quickly coming to a close, and with it comes the end of our outdoor Sunday morning services at Pleasant Hill Christian School.  For the past five months we have enjoyed meeting together at our school, except for an occasional Sunday cancellation due to lightning strikes or poor air quality.  Rain is now forecast starting in early November, preventing us from setting up the necessary audio equipment that we would need to conduct an outdoor worship service. 

As you probably know, Sonoma County health officials have not yet reopened churches for indoor services, and until they do our plan is to live stream a worship service each Sunday morning at 10 a.m. from our church building in Occidental.  This service will include music and preaching for about an hour, with a few musicians and singers providing music and me preaching.  We have never before done this at Occidental Community Church, but we are working to make it happen.  As we get things in place for this, we will be letting you know how you can access our worship services online.  We pray for the day to come soon when once again we can all assemble together for worship and praise in person at Occidental Community Church.

This has been a challenging year for churches as I have never before experienced in all my years of ministry.  Please pray that God will continue to empower and enable us to proclaim the Gospel of His love and grace despite the obstacles we face.  We trust him, and we serve him with gratitude!

He is faithful!
Pastor Rick Hahn

We understand that there may be some in our church family who are not ready for this, but for those who are, we welcome you!  Here are the recommendations and guidelines (click here or read below) we have adopted in order to make this as safe as possible for all who attend.  Please read them over carefully.
