Students: Let's stay connected this summer
Summer can feel strange for families as they balance the pull of too much or too little to do. Our Five Oaks Students summer programming, on Wednesday nights in June & July, will help keep students connected to each other and to their faith journey while still enjoying summer’s downtime.
At Middle School Getaway Camp, June 27-30 at Camp Arrowhead, middle schoolers can expect with big fun, plus a time to slow down without technology and encounter God. (Click here to register on Realm by June 10 – bring a non-Five Oaks friend & you both get a discount!) High schoolers even have an opportunity to grow as they serve and have fun at Middle School Camp! Questions? Click here to email Henry Michael with questions, or message Henry Michael on Realm.
Family Worship this weekend
On the weekend of May 25+26, we will have a Family Worship Weekend. Kids in grades 1-5 will join their parents in regular family worship. Activity bags and books will be available for families who would like to use them during the service.

VBS & summer will be better with you!

Or, we could use your help over the summer in Five Oaks Kids on the weekends. Even just 1-2 weekends will help our team and make those kids smile. Please click here to email Kelly Bauman and she’ll help you find a good match.
Ready-Set-Go! Where is Jesus taking you? (Will you text me with that info, 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?
