    WELCOME TO GRACE OPC! 

    On behalf of the session of Grace OPC, I want to extend our warmest greetings to you.  It is my hope and prayer that as we gather together this Lord’s Day to worship our Triune God and Redeemer, you will be encouraged to cast your cares upon the Lord and to draw near to God by faith in His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. If you are new here in Fair Lawn, please join us for fellowship following the benediction, and be sure to sign our guestbook.  We look forward to personally speaking with you, and if there are any prayer concerns in your heart, don’t hesitate to bring them to our attention.   

                                                                                Pastor John Keegan

    This afternoon in 2 Timothy 1:7, we will learn that there is no trait that is more incompatible with the call to follow Christ than cowardice, but the divine traits of power, love and self-control make us courageous.

     

    Today, Fellowship Luncheon Sunday: Following morning worship, we will hold our monthly fellowship luncheon. These delicious luncheons are a potluck meal.

     2023 OPC Thank Offering Collection: This year’s theme is “Countless Gift of Love”.
