A peek at what's to come for Global Missions weekend next weekend
We know many corners of the world need to hear the Gospel. On June 9/10 we’ll explore global missions at Five Oaks. Come ready to learn more when we’ll hear from Kevin Kompelien, president of the EFCA. We’ll also get details from ReachGlobal, the global missions arm of the EFCA, on ways to become engaged in global missions, including praying, giving ... and going. You’ll learn ways to respond to that nudge from the Holy Spirit to do more both locally and “glocally” -- that is, ways to serve the world without leaving the US. Questions? Message Kevin Johnson, our Impact Director, on Realm. Oh yes -- we’ll have treats, too!
We’d (still) love your smile and help!
Summer is coming, but nothing slows down in Five Oaks Kids! If you are available this summer and you love kids, please consider volunteering on 1, 2, or several weekends to help in any classroom. Your smile and love for kids could help even one child fall in love with Jesus. Please write “Tree House summer help” and your email on your communication card. Our kids thank you!
