Weekend of May 19+20


Let's celebrate our Five Oaks senior class!

Our seniors have worked hard to grow from bright-eyed kindergarteners to mature young men and women who are rounding out their senior year of high school. As these young people approach graduation, please join us in praying for them and for the path that lay ahead for them. May God bless their journey and protect their hearts! Congratulations, graduates! 

This weekend we'll be honoring our Five Oaks seniors during our worship services.  Join us for root beer floats after our Saturday service in honor of our graduating class! (Yes, even if you aren't a senior anymore...floats all around!)

Upcoming events & things to know

Can you influence just one child?
Summer is coming, but nothing slows down in Five Oaks Kids! If you are around this summer and you love kids, please consider volunteering on 1, 2, or several weekends to help in one classroom. Your smile and love for kids could help even one child fall in love with Jesus. Please fill out the Five Oaks Kids Summer Serve handout you received today and drop it in the offering box on your way out. Our kids thank you!



Parents: stress and anxiety milestone this week
Parents, if you’ve seen your student wrestle with the balance of schoolwork, sports, friends, future plans and/or their part-time job, please join us for our Navigating Adolescence milestone series in May.  This week we’ll discuss stress and anxiety -- May 23, 6:30-7:30 pm in the worship center.  Marriage and Family Therapist, Dave Runion, will share some wisdom, resources and answer questions. Please RSVP on Realm.
