At Okemos Community Church, we support many missions and organizations in both the Lansing area community and also across the USA and Internationally. Each month a different organization is chosen to receive funds from our weekly offerings. Below you will see several opportunities for giving.
Your contributions can be given to support:
Okemos Community Church Funds
OCC General Fund
- Supports the day to day operating of the church and staff
Pastor's Discretionary Fund

July Mission Focus: Helping Women Period
Helping Women Period was founded in 2015 by two local Lansing women.
Helping Women Period's mission is to provide menstrual health and incontinent products to homeless and low-income people. The need for these products is ever present and expensive. Sadly, menstrual health and incontinent products cannot be purchased using the primary assistance programs. Products are not readily available in our public spaces such as schools, workplaces or governmental buildings. In addition, they are not exempt from sales tax, and not available in shelters, crisis centers, jails or prisons. The result is that homeless individuals are experiencing their periods without the dignity of menstrual and incontinent health products.
