Your local OCF group is truly the heartbeat of Officers’ Christian Fellowship—a place where you can share the unique challenges of your military life in a supportive Christian setting of prayer, Bible study, and fellowship.
We’re calling on local leaders in October for assistance with OCF’s Membership Month. There are likely people already attending your OCF group who are not actual OCF members and missing out on the benefits ofmembership.
Here’s what we’re asking you to do:
- Take a laptop to one of your regularly scheduled meetings.
- Ask each person if they’ve ever signed up online or sent in an application to be an OCF member.
- If they haven’t, invite them to join by filling out the online form at OCF’s website (http://www.ocfusa.org/join-ocf/join-form)
Share the following information with your group
