Weekend of September 16+17


Looking for church community?

As a church, we see that God designed us to do life together. And the best way to do that is through our small groups. We have groups meeting every day of the week, in every stage of life, as well as men’s groups and women’s groups. Many who participate in small groups find that their small group becomes their church family. To learn more and find a small group that fits with your schedule and stage of life, visit the Ministry Cart in the Commons this weekend. You may also access more info by clicking here.

All-new Explore Five Oaks class September 17 — that’s this Sunday!
Come check out our all-new Explore Five Oaks class on September 17 at 11 am. This class offers the chance to learn who we are as a church & what we believe, plus connect with other newcomers. Pizza lunch included following the class, plus an opportunity to meet with staff. Hope to see you there!


Are you a lighting guy? A sound gal?
Our Worship Arts Team is looking for more volunteers in their tech roles. Help us present our weekend worship services so the sermon and music are as worshipful as possible. Several types of positions available. We’ll train you for your chosen role, after which a volunteer or staff person will sit with you until you’re ready. More info available at the Ministry Cart this weekend. You may also email Harold Ennulat, hennulat@fiveoakschurch.org, with questions.


Fall Story of God classes starting soon
Learn how the Bible fits together to tell one story & discover a relational approached to spiritual growth. Connect with others in a cohort, and ask tough questions. This class is a six-week series of 1-hour cohort meetings, plus daily reading and homework. Several classes starting this fall. Go to storyofgod.church to learn more & register.


Help us ‘usher’ in a new year…
Are you friendly? Do you like to greet people, make them feel comfortable, even solve small problems on the spot? If you answered yes to any of those, you may have a future in ushering! Our Connections Team is looking to recruit several additional ushers for teams we are adding to our weekend services. We need help at our Saturday services, and we also need help at both the first and second Sunday services. For more information, please email Jennifer Clemens, jclemens@fiveoakschurch.org.


The Retreat needs your help
We are still looking for help in the Retreat, our ministry for differently-abled children in our church family. This ministry blesses many children in our church with different physical and learning challenges, and it blesses their parents by allowing them to worship each week with great peace of mind. If you are able to volunteer even once each month at our 9 am service, please contact Laura at retreat@fiveoakschurch.org.


Please pray for our missionaries with us
Please join us as we gather to pray for the 14 Five Oaks-supported missionaries, their families and their ministries. September 24, room 105. 10:15-11 am. Bonus: treats will be served! We’d love to have your prayer support for these global partners!


Are you a pro golfer? An amazing chef?
This October in Five Oaks Students we will be holding our Student Challenge Silent Auction. At the Challenge Conference students will get the opportunity to learn and hear from amazing speakers, worship with talented worship artists, hang out with each other and their leader, serve the community, and spend time learning about and connecting with Jesus. In order to make this trip happen, we hold the Student Challenge Silent Auction. This year we are seeking donations for the auction. These donations can include stays at cabins, sport team tickets, hotel stays, auto/home repairs, unique experiences like fishing, activities for families, electronics, etc. We would also like to partner with our local Five Oaks businesses to include in the silent auction. If you have an item you would like to donate please email Martha at myoung@fiveoakschurch.org. We appreciate your support!
