WEDNESDAY MORNING PRAYER *No Wednesday prayer on 12/25

COMMUNITY GROUPS LAUNCH JANUARY 5

We are thrilled to be entering into our winter 2020 community group campaign!  Community groups are the primary way that we live out our call as Christians to live life together.  Groups meet once a week for 10 weeks to share, process the week’s sermon, and enjoy one another’s company.  If you've been waiting to join a group until “the right time” — it is now!   Click here for information and to sign up, or visit the connect table in the lobby after the service. 

CHILD DEDICATIONS | SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 2

On Sunday, February 2, we will celebrate the gift of children, families, and new life. Dedications are time for parents and Oaks members to affirm and commit to their God-given responsibility to teach their children about Jesus and what He has done. If you are interested in dedicating your child(ren), email Kristin Rall at kanderson@theoakscommunitychurch.org and plan to attend our parent meeting on Sunday, January 19 at either 8:30am or 10:30am (30 minutes before each service).

 

OAKS PLAYLISTS

To help you prepare for our weekly gatherings, we've put together this weekly playlist containing the songs we'll be singing together this coming Sunday.  Take a listen to prime your heart and mind to worship.  

We've also put together a brand new playlist for Advent with songs to sing as we settle back into rhythms we may have set aside for the summer.  We pray these songs are a blessing to you!
