Weekend Announcements May 14+15

Silent Auction runs this weekend and next

What will you find? Maybe it’s kayaking down the St. Croix, free Culver’s custard for a year (yum!) fly fishing with Pastor Henry, MN Twins tickets, or simply a date night to a fun restaurant, our annual Student Ministries Silent Auction takes place this weekend and next weekend in the Commons. Your bidding efforts will help our 7th-12th grade students get to the Challenge Conference in Louisville this July. Thank you in advance for your support. This trip is often one of the most pivotal faith-growing experiences for high schoolers at Five Oaks, so please bid early and often!
