Serving coordinator will help you plug in

Not sure how to get started serving at Five Oaks? Well, we’ve got a Serving Coordinator to help with that. Start by filling out the brief five-question survey you received in your email inbox this week, and the Serving Coordinator will call you within the week. (This works too if you would like to change the ministry where you currently serve). Contact Jennifer Clemens, jclemens@fiveoakschurch.org, with questions.
