November 11th is Baptism Sunday.  If anyone is interested in being baptized contact Jon@theoaksumc.org or Tina@theoaksumc.org and we will put you on the roster for that Sunday!  
Psst! Parents!!! We in kids ministry are trying to make church better for our kids and to do this we are asking to fill out a quick "get to know you" survey to help us get to know who your kids really are! We only get few precious moments with your children each week, we want to be sure we are reaching them and bringing the Bible alive and making God as real and tangible for them as possible each week. It is our goal to help facilitate their journey in faith with you as parents and caregivers to the best in our ability. You just have to click the link and fill it out and it will help us compile a list of needs and areas on which we need to grow! Thank you!

Is your teen needing service hours?  Or are looking to serve their community?  We are currently looking for teens 11th-12th grade who would like to volunteer in Oaks Kids ministry!  Contact for more information! 
We are currently looking for 4-8 people to become Support Team Members!

Oaks Kids is growing and that means we need to fill more needs!  Right now we don't have enough people to comply with our Ministry Safe regulations.  We need to have two non-related adults in a classroom at all times.

  At this time we are operating at one teacher in Pre-K and K-5th grades a Sunday with child numbers pushing towards the upper teens in Pre-K and upper 20's in K-5th grade (and that is on a low attendance Sunday). 

This isn't satisfactory for us!  We want to create a safe and nurturing place where parents and children can focus on God.  We can't do that with a bare bones crew; we also can not do this by ourselves! 

We do have a few wonderful brave volunteers who have already stepped up to the plate but we need more!  New and exciting things are happening and we won't be able to grow if our volunteer base doesn't grow with us!  

Please pray about joining our team!  We've been praying unendingly for you! 

Volunteer Applications are at kids check in or ask Tina or Kim on Sunday!
