Worship services at 9:45 am at Memorial Park through July



Welcome to Ottawa Presbyterian Church! 

Located at 150 North Oak on the corner of East Third Street and Oak Street. 
Telephone:  (419) 523-3694
Beginning May 31, we follow our "summer" schedule with Worship at 9:45 am.  Worship services have been either online (since March 22) or at Memorial Park beginning June 14.   We will continue at the park through July.

Our Statement

     To love God, follow Jesus, and love all.

A Sign of the Times - we will now meet at the park until we are able to return to worshipping in our sanctuary!  We hope to get a shelter house near the caboose.


Online Service Links Since Quarantine


We will follow Governor DeWine's and the Putnam County Health Department's recommendations and worship in "alternative" ways until those recommendations allow groups to safely and wisely gather once again.

What's happened?

  • Worship services moved online beginning March 22 (FaceBook live).  From March 29 on, services moved to YouTube.  Links are posted on this site as well as on our Facebook page and Facebook group.  If you would like to have links emailed directly to you, contact Beth M.
  • On June 14, Worship moved to Memorial Park and will continue there through July, hopefully in the shelter house by the caboose.  See you there, in an abundance of fresh air to keep us safe, at 9:45 am.  In addition to a mask, you may want to bring your own chair, or even coffee.


What's Next? 

  • July  5 - Worship at 9:45 am at Memorial Park (shelter house by caboose).  Bulletins & Hymn sheets will be available.  However, you may wish to have these in advance.
  • We hope to continue worship in the park during July.  (Still need to confirm that with Village of Ottawa, however.)


When we return to worshipping together....

  • We will be on summer schedule with worship at 9:45 (as of May 31)
  • Worship will be held in Memorial Park, at least through July
  • We will NOT have breakfasts this summer
  • Masks will be highly encouraged
  • Social distancing will be practiced
  • We will try to continue online options for those with health issues who should not attend.  We will probably end up recording sermons as in the past.
