Want to help with chalkboard art and lettering?
You may have noticed we have new chalkboards on our Ministry Carts in the Commons. Our ministry leaders would love a volunteer who has an artistic bent toward chalkboard art and lettering to help us advertise for their ministries. If you are interested and could spare an hour once every week or two at your convenience, please contact our Serve Coordinator, Jennifer Clemens, at jclemens@fiveoakschurch.org.

Small groups: are you registered?
Joining a small group is one way to model to family and friends that knowing God and being in community are a high priority.  Most people who participate in a small group find that their small group becomes their church family.  Visit the Small Groups area at the Information Center to find a group that fits your schedule and life stage, or write “Small Groups” and your email on your Communication Card. Now is the time to register for our spring session.
