New Course: Using Office 365

office-365-iconOffice 365 is a massive collection of applications and services offered by Microsoft – the creators of Windows and the popular Office Suite.  As an OC employee you have access to an incredible amount of applications to foster productivity and collaboration through the Office 365 for Business Premium plan.

So much is possible with the Office 365 making it one of the best option in productivity tools on the internet.  With so many apps, services, and features comes a rather steep learning curve.  Fortunately, Microsoft provides a lot of documentation, training, videos, etc. to help their users use each app to it’s fullest potential.

This course shares

  • what you get with your 365 account
  • how to get help and find the information you need
  • some helpful websites and videos
  • an archive of one-page guides for each app or service

Use this course as a reference when you run into problems or take it now in preparation for the Office 365 rollout in OC.

OC’s Foundations

worldEvery ministry decision you make will help or hinder you as you work to accomplish God’s will for you, your team, and the USMC as a whole.  But how can we know God’s will as we make ministry decisions?

The Holy Spirit has given OC a vision, mission, strategy, and guiding principles.  These statements and values show us God’s plans and desires for OC.  If we are to be in God’s will, we must be working to accomplish the mission He has given us.  If we aren’t working towards the accomplishment of our mission, we are not in God’s will and in sin.

It’s absolutely essential that we know, understand, and are able to use OC’s guiding statements and values to make ministry decisions.  A new course on the Learning Center, Understanding OC’s Foundations, helps us to discover and critically consider OC’s guiding statements and how to use them properly.

Appointees and new missionaries are especially encouraged to visit and revisit this course so that our guiding statements not only become known in our minds but become ingrained in our hearts as well.  Our veteran missionaries could also benefit from taking this course, since we’ve recently re-written our guiding statements.

Come to the Learning Center and check out our latest course, Understanding OC’s Foundations and discover what God’s will is for OC.
