One of the visions of our late Pastor and Founder, Johnny R. King and his wife, our Senior Pastor, Rose M. King is that the C.O.C. Church Family reaches out to one another with the love of Christ, developing unity, harmony and agreement within the church. In 1997, that vision came to pass with the establishment of People Reaching People (P.R.P.)
P.R.P. is for everyone, from teens to seniors. The groups consist of members from every age group.
The main goal of P.R.P. is to be an effective in-reach ministry where the members assist the Pastors in ministering to each others’ needs, spirit, soul, body, emotionally, and socially – “People Reaching People.” This is accomplished through phone calls, visiting and preparing meals for the sick and shut-in, sending cards of sympathy or encouragement when needed, and personally ministering to people who have had a death in their family. Additionally, the P.R.P. groups follow-up with new and inactive members to encourage them to be involved and ensure their needs for a church are being met.
No group would be complete without Fellowship, Food & Fun! The P.R.P. groups meet periodically at C.O.C. and participate in “get to know you games,” spiritual and personal enrichment sessions. In addition, each group has fellowships outside of the church; everything from pizza parties, bowling and roller skating to outings at the movies.
Pastor Rose emphasizes the principle of “T.E.A.M.” – Together Everyone Accomplishes More. If you want to experience a church family praying for one another, worshipping together, loving one another and enjoying one another’s company, you can always count on People Reaching People.
“And all who believed (who adhered to and trusted in and relied on Jesus Christ) were united and (together) they had everything in common.” (Acts 2:44, AMP)
