Church Coffee online sign up

The ‘Church Coffee’ of OiC is beloved by all of us. It is the wonderful time directly after the church service where you feel most community-like, can socialize with old and new friends or can get to know new people.

There are some who are responsible for the Church Coffee regularly, but it would be nice if more people would participate, just now and then. We encourage people to bring food from their own culture such that we can celebrate the internationality of the church 🙂

On the sign up form, people can sign up for bringing food, helping with the practical part, or both!

For the food part you can bring whatever you want, fruit, cake, biscuits, soup, spring rolls. The practical part is making coffee and tea and washing the dishes -with a machine- afterwards. It takes about 30 minutes to prepare before church and 30 minutes to clean up after. There is a clear guide in the church coffee box and even if you have questions, there are always others to help out.

The online sign up form for Church Coffee is hosted by Sign Up Genius:

Annual report and meeting

annualreport
On the Sunday after the winter day, we have the OiC Annual Meeting, in which the board and ministry leaders present last year’s results and in which we discuss and take decisions for the coming period; for example, we will elect new board members.

The annual meeting takes place after the service in our church coffee area. The church service will be a bit shorter and of course there will be church coffee 🙂

Please read the Annual Report as preparation to the meeting:

Saturday Winter day

winterday800This Saturday, March 18th, the yearly OiC Winter Day will take place again: A time of fellowship on a (hopefully) sunny and wintery day. The weather has been fairly mild, but regardless we can build on past OiC-Winter-Day success and enjoy another beautiful day outdoors. We’ll grill over an open fire and most importantly – hang out together!

Please remember to bring:
– Warm clothes and a sitteunderlag (i.e. something to sit on)
– Something to grill over the fire
– Skis or a sled

We gather 11:00 at Øvresetertjern lake; it should be easy to find us there; otherwise check Facebook. Either Voksenkollen or Frognerseteren are good T-bane stations to start walking from (5 min).
