Our OaksKIDS Early Childhood and Elementary teams are looking for volunteer helpers to assist in leading our young ones. If you are interested in Nursery-Kindergarten, please contact Kim. If you would like to help with Elementary age kiddos, please contact Stacey

*All OaksKIDS helpers will need to go through our Ministry Safe training.*
This past week, a crew started demolition work in the metal building at the church property. Since we acquired this property in 2015, we've been dreaming of transforming this 1500sf space into a safe, clean space for our youth to meet. That dream is finally becoming a reality! Through the coming weeks, we'll provide updates on the progress along with snapshots so you can see what's happening. Thanks be to God for the opportunity to provide our young folks with a great space! Stay tuned!
Are you looking for a great family resource for Advent? Sign up for these daily family devotions from Sparkhouse Family. Help your family focus on Christ this season! 
Back in October, we introduced a concept we are calling GROWING THE OAKS. We are thankful for how God's grace has been working in and through this church, and we want to be good stewards of God's love for this community. Part of this vision means we are planning now for what a permanent structure will look like on the church property. We are dreaming together with God to imagine ministry space for OaksKIDS, a worship sanctuary for Sunday mornings, as well as space where community groups can meet when needed. Please pray for guidance through this season of visioning together. Also, if you have any questions through this process, please don't hesitate to contact Pastor Jon
