Food trucks. Father's day. Five Oaks Church.
Come to church hungry on June 19. In fact, bring your hungry Dad, too. In honor of Father’s Day, we are hosting the Tot Boss and r.a.MacSammy’s food trucks right here in the Five Oaks parking lot. If weather permits, we'll have picnic tables outside. Buy Dad some Deep-Fried Mac & Cheese Bites or maybe a Tater Tot Hotdish. These food trucks will be here after both services on Sunday, June 19. They do accept credit cards for payment. Click here for the Tot Boss menu. Click here for the r.a.MacSammy's menu.
