Summer is here! This is the time of year when many of us naturally switch over to vacation mode and seek some much-needed down time. We hope and pray that you will be able to find some rest away from the rat race during this season. Most of all, in the midst of this refreshing season may you sense God as present and active in your life!

This week we will launch a new ministry at The Oaks. In order to communicate prayer needs and connect with one another as we connect to God, we are setting up an email based prayer connection, which will be run through a separate list on our church MailChimp account. If you'd like to sign up to receive these emails, and if you'd like to share a prayer need to be included in the list, please let Michele know!

Your church family at The Oaks loves you, and our hope is that you find your deep passion and purpose in Christ with us!

Grace and peace,

Pastor Jon and Amber Reeves
Join us this June for worship as we reflect on scripture through the lens of some of the most well known one-liners from our favorite movies.
Guys, our dates for Men's Breakfast this month are June 3rd and 17th at Big Burger in Hudson Oaks. Hope to see you there!
As we announced last week in worship, our Oaks Kids staff is taking this summer to revamp some of the ways we approach ministry with our youngest ones. We've decided to make these changes due to the growth of our congregation and an increase in the number of kiddos we serve on a weekly basis. We're not quite finished with our new plans yet, but we want all our Oaks Kids parents to be aware ahead of time that some changes are coming. So stay tuned for more info through June! If you have any questions, be sure to contact our Oaks Kids staff Stacey Vantine and Kim Brown.
Important Student Ministry Updates for June:

-Celebrate our graduating seniors this Sunday, June 4, in worship!

-Students (just finished 6th grade though senior) who wish to go on summer mission trip this July 16-21 need to register by June 9. Contact Rylee with questions!
Want to help build our Welcoming Ministry Team? Pastor Jon is going to lead a cohort from our church through a training offered online by our United Methodist Communications folks.
This Fall (Sept 27-29), Pastor Jon is planning to take our staff and leaders from our congregation to this annual training event offered by the United Methodist Church of the Resurrection in Leawood, KS. If you're interested in learning more about any aspect of leadership or serving in our church and you are interested in attending this training conference, talk Pastor Jon this summer!
Our Central Texas Conference will offer a training conference focused on mission and community outreach this Fall. For info:

Engage is designed for clergy and laity involved in the mission ministries of their local church. Through plenary and breakout sessions, mission leaders will be able to consider ways to relationally grow mission ministry and provide depth that transforms both churches and communities. Materials will be particularly appropriate to help local churches evaluate current mission/outreach ministries and plan for increasingly relational mission ministries in the future. Information about the conference, the featured speaker and registration can be found at ctcumc.org/engage
Throughout the summer, our Thursday night Women's Bible Study is going to shift from meeting weekly to monthly. Join us for the first of these meetings on June 22 at 6pm at 2911 Inspiration Drive in Hudson Oaks.
