What is OCCU?

OCC University is a deeper level Bible study that we offer at OCC on Sunday mornings. We believe that the Bible is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living-because it is inspired by God, it is truth without error. God has given us His Word and we want to do everything we can to help you understand it. 
Whether you are a long time believer or completely new to this – we know that studying the Bible can be difficult at times and we know that sometimes other things can get in the way. That’s why we offer OCCU. 
Wherever you are in life these classes are prayerfully picked with you in mind and we believe these classes will strengthen your relationship with God.
OCCU is a 12-13 week study and we encourage you to come study God’s Word with us.

Class Information

  • It’s a radical idea: We’re not entitled to get offended or stay angry. The idea of our own “righteous anger” is a myth and is one of key problems in our society today.  As it turns out, giving up our “right” to be offended can be one of the most freeing, healthy, simplifying, relaxing, refreshing, stress-relieving, encouraging things we can do.  Join us in Classroom 3 at 9:00am for this study. 
Wild Truth Bible Studies (Middle School Class)
  • This class is designed for grades 6-8.  This class is led by John Lovitt & Kelsey Kersten and will be held in classroom 5 at 9:00am.   John and Kelsey bring a fun and interactive style of teaching.  Middle school students are encouraged to attend the class this semester as they explore the “Wild Truths” in the pages of Scripture.
The Gospel of John
  •  The Gospel of John is unique among the Gospels with a specific focus is on the signs of Jesus identity and mission, as well as lengthy discourse on the final week of Jesus’ life.  The author himself states his main purpose clearly in 20:31: that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.  Please join us for this in depth study.  This class is at 9:00am and will be held in classroom 2. 
The Book of Revelation (College/Young Adults)
  • Brent Bestwick is back to lead a study through the fascinating and relevant book of Revelation.   This oft misunderstood (and misapplied) book contains some wonderful insights into the nature of God, the purpose of the church, and the events, both past and future, that impact our everyday lives.  This class will be held in classroom 4 at 9:00am. 
The Book of Proverbs
  • This study will explore some of the most practical and applicable passages of Scripture.  Proverbs if full of life lessons, insights into human character, and reminders of the promises and love of God.  Please join us for a peek into this fascinating book led by Kenny Taylor.  Kenny is an excellent communicator.  He is a high school teacher and coach and also hosts a weekly outdoor radio show. His classes have been well-received. This class is at 10:30am and will be held in classroom 2. 
Discerning the Voice of God (Women’s Class)
  • This seven session study unlocks the root to clear and daily communication with God.  In this study we are reminded that God’s many blessings are intended for us, center us in His will, and help us discern His voice in everyday life.  This class is for women only and is facilitated by Kim Kiser and will be held in classroom 4 at 10:30am.  

The Book of Acts (High School Class)
  • We will be walking through the book of Acts and seeing how the text relates to what teens go through. We will also talk about current events and how Acts teaches us to live today as a follower of Christ. This class is designed for grades 9-12. This class is led by Al Schuweiler and is held in classroom 5 at 10:30am.
