AOC participates annually in the world's largest Christmas project of it's kind, collecting gift-filled shoe boxes for children all around the world. 146 million children in over 150 countries have received a shoe box since 1993. Help us share the good news of Jesus. Stop by the Operation Christmas Child foyer table to pick up a box and a list of items needed to fill them. Last day to drop off boxes will be Nov. 12.

An original AOC Women's Bible Study written by Meghan Congdon, teaching by the REAL Women's Ministry Teaching Team
We may know about Job's tragedies, the spiritual warfare going on behind the scenes, and may have even heard God's words at the end of the story. But along the way, Job's friends come to minister to him in his great suffering, and God tells them they get it wrong. Where do they miss the point, and what can we learn about God and ourselves from their mistakes?
Cost $15. Childcare available for the morning sessions at an additional cost.

Based on the book by Drs. Les and Leslie Parrot, Saving Your Marriage Before It Starts is a great course for those of you planning to get married. It's also a great "brush-up" for those of you already married.
The class is $70 per couple and upon completion, you will receive a certificate for a discounted marriage license.
The class meets Sunday mornings at 9:00 AM in CLC 204 and begins Aug. 6th. HOWEVER, don't be afraid to start the course afterward as it's easy to get caught up on the material.

CALLED BY NAME, an original musical by Miriam Relyea, tells the story of Mephibosheth, the forgotten lame son of Jonathan, son of Israel’s first King, Saul. Told with warmth and humor, it is a story of love and redemption - and a consistently mispronounced name. The performance is being presented by the AOC Theatre Arts Ministry in partnership with God of Hope Ministries, an organization that provides Christian care and discipleship to men and women incarcerated in Austin and the Central Texas area.
