Try out a small group (or two!) this summer
Many of our small groups move to a less structured rhythm in the summer. If you’ve not joined a small group before, or you need to re-join after a break, summer is a great time to “try on” a few different small groups to find a good fit. Lots of groups have more socials, BBQ’s and even boating or camping trips in the summer, so you can easily meet lots of new people at various events. (Maybe choose the group with the best beef brisket to join in the fall!) Interested in finding a group? Message Jonathan Haage on Realm, or email him at email@example.com, and he’ll help you start the process.
You can ask Pastor Henry that question
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 lunch with Pastor Henry will allow you to ask any questions about Five Oaks and get you started connecting with others. FREE childcare and a FREE pizza and salad lunch. Sunday, June 9, after the second service. Interested in attending? Please click here to email Kelsey Vang with your RSVP.
Summer will be better with you!
Summer will feel more summery when you offer up your gift of service in Five Oaks Kids on the weekends. Even just 1-2 weekends will help our team and make those kids smile. We provide the curriculum and materials you need; you just show up and help those kids learn about Jesus! Please click here to email Kelly Bauman with your interest.

Ready-Set-Go! Where is Jesus taking you? (Will you text me a reminder, please?)
On Impact Weekend in March we introduced the Impact Journey, and 200 of you picked up Impact Journey Passports filled with great Impact ideas. Many of you are making good progress! If you didn’t get a Passport, you can pick one up at the Impact Center. We want to help you and your family create change and share Christ’s love on this journey, and we know that time is tight for many families. With all of the other commitments we all shoulder, it’s hard to fit in “one more thing.” If you’d like to receive text reminders from Five Oaks Church for upcoming Ready-Set-Go Passport opportunities, please text ‘fiveoaksimpact’ to 555-888. We’ll send you reminders of dates and times that you can add to your calendar as you have margin for them. Jesus promised to be with you always on this journey. Where might he be taking you next?
