Weekend of June 30 + July 1


Small Groups: Try us out this summer

Many of our small groups dial back their pace a bit in the summer, taking a break from planned study to focus on fellowship and community-building. If you’re looking to join a small group, summer is a great time to meet others in a more relaxed setting to find a good fit for your schedule and life stage. Interested in more info? Write “small groups /summer” and your email on your communication card. We’ll also have more info at the ministry cart this weekend. 

Do you love kids but your time is limited?
Each weekend almost 200 kids learn about God in the classrooms of  Five Oaks Kids. Your willing spirit can make a big difference: helping out at the welcome desk, or substitute teaching in a classroom are 2 easy ways. Please email Kelly Bauman, kbauman@fiveoakschurch.org or write “Five Oaks Kids summer” and your email on your communication card. She’ll help you find a fit for your schedule and gifts.



Please pray for our high schoolers
Please pray for the 21 students and 6 adults as they travel to Kansas City for the EFCA’s Challenge Conference, July 2-6. Students will hear from dynamic speakers, take part in compelling worship and process this learning together. They also will sprinkle in some fun and some time in service. Thank you for covering their week in prayer!



New Here? Let Pastor Henry answer your q’s
If you’re new here, you may wonder how best to get connected. We have a simple first step, called Pizza with the Pastor. This one-hour, sit-down lunch with Pastor Henry will allow you to ask any questions about Five Oaks and get you started connecting with others at our church. FREE childcare and a FREE pizza and salad lunch. July 8 after the second service. Visit HERE to register.



Dorothy Day: We’d love your help July 7
Most of us don’t worry about where our next meal will come from. Not everyone in our own community is that fortunate. This is an opportunity to be the hands and feet of Jesus and help prepare and serve a meal at the Dorothy Day Center in St. Paul. Saturday, July 7, 8:30 am—1:15 pm. Must be at least 13 years old.  To register, please write “Dorothy Day” and your email on your communication card.
