Sunday School 9:45am

Worship 10:45am

EPIC (Youth) 5:00pm


Update for March 22 & 29 Services

Sunday March 22 & 29, our leadership team through prayer and careful consideration has decided to promote our Online Worship Experience for the next two weeks. That being said, we are not closing the church. We believe firmly in these times that church doors should be open to those in need.  Should anyone need or want to worship at Connect Church these Sundays; our Worship, Safety and Leadership Teams will be present. 

Sunday School will now be an Online Prayer Experience from 10:00 – 10:30am. We hope you will tune in and share your requests so we can pray and encourage you. Worship will be at 10:45am as usual. 

Your health and well-being are a top priority to Connect Church. We are making sure all surfaces are clean and sanitized. Hand Sanitizer will be used as anyone enters the church and we are encouraging those who attend to sit in family groups, keeping the six foot social distance as recommended by the CDC. If you are immune-compromised, feeling ill or if you have been exposed to the COVID 19 Virus please stay home and enjoy our Online Worship Experience at Facebook/ConnectChurchPC. On Monday the service will be available on Youtube as well. 

Pastor Kenneth will be also ministering to our Youth through an Online EPIC Experience, he will tell you more about that on Sunday. 

Your tithes and offerings are appreciated and valued, especially now, they allow us to be generous to those who are suffering financially during this quarantine period. If you personally know of someone in need during this time please contact Pastor Mark so we can minister first hand to our community. You can give through Paypal, Cash App, by Texting 678-871-1481, or mail your check to 1101 W. Grand, Ponca City, OK 74601.

Also, don’t forget to tune in for the month of March, Pastor Mark is hosting a FB Live Prayer & Healing Experience. We want a cure for COVID-19 and we are praying for just that. This is everyday  but Sundays, we will be praying in the service for a cure during these times.

Remember God is in control, He is bigger than this virus! The entire staff and leadership of Connect Church are here to encourage, help, assist and do whatever we can to get everyone through this time. In 2 Chronicles 20:12 the Israelites were surrounded by three different armies as they prayed, “We do not know what to do, we are looking to You for help.” They turned to God and that’s exactly where we need to turn at this time. #ConnectorsTurnToGod

Meet some of the leadership team

Mark and Terri Busch have been at Connect Church since July of 1999. They are both graduates of OKWU in Bartlesville, OK. They’ve been married since May 1998 and have two sons – Jack and Lance. Mark is the Lead Pastor at Connect Church while Terri serves as both a Worship Leader and the Communications Team Leader. They have such passion to reach and serve the lost. The fire that resonates within both of them for Ponca City is contagious and spreads wherever they go. Their goal for Connect Church is to make a welcoming environment that allows opportunities for every person, while drawing near to God with prayer and church family surrounding them with each step.
Kenneth and Aprille Ostler serve as our Youth Pastors. They joined the Connect Church team in January 2020. They have been serving as Youth Pastors since 2016 and are both graduates of Evangel University in Springfield, MO. They have been married since January 2017, and have a son named KJ (Kenneth Jr.). They provide an exciting yet challenging environment for each and every student by bringing life and relevance to the Bible and what it means to be a Christian in society today. Their goal is to start simple changes to the youth that will help provide understanding and focus to their lives. Aprille is also serving as the Connections Pastor. This position is a new addition to Connect Church. The Connections Pastor is here to help align staff and lead the congregation to a genuine sense of belonging, involvement and spiritual growth at Connect Church. Her goal is to do this by meeting people where they are and leading them to their next step with our Church mission in mind – to CONNECT.
Alan and Kenita Kendle serve as our Children’s Pastors. They have a heart for children and love watching them grow in Jesus. They have been serving the children within our community since 1984; although, they have been serving faithfully at Connect Church as the Children’s Pastors since 2015. They provide a fun, loving, and learning environment for every student. This includes exciting object lessons, memorable characters, and interactive activities while bringing stories from the Bible to life. Each week, their goal is to leave a lesson with each student that will help guide them in the direction of Jesus as well as covering them with prayer and love. Alan is also a current member of the Board for our church.
Ashlee Logan serves as our Executive Assistant at Connect Church and has worked diligently to keep us organized since 2015. She has a son named Michael, currently serves on the board as the Treasurer, and is our Worship Leader. Her God-given passion for worship has been with her since she was a kid and she has had the opportunity to lead worship in the community since 2005. Her goal is to help the congregation seek the Lord and strive to become closer with Him each and every week.
