Weekend of May 4+5


Love kids? Stop by and take a peek this weekend

If you love watching kids grow, or you appreciate all the precious things kids say, join us at any service this weekend for a volunteering open house in Five Oaks Kids. Arrive 30 minutes before any of our services and see our weekly group huddle and training time. Or, just stop by at any point to poke your head into our classrooms and experience the fun kids are having while learning about Jesus. And – bonus – treats for all who stop by! We’d love to add you to our team as a “regular” or as a “sub”! Stop by and see if Five Oaks Kids is a good fit. 

China virtual prayer event Saturday morning (Impact Passport “Set” opportunity)
You may think you can’t do about the increasing government pressure on Christians in China, but you can. Through videoconferencing you can actually see, encourage, and pray with the House Church leaders and sent workers who courageously advance the Gospel in China.  Join us at Five Oaks Saturday, May 4, 8:00 – 9:30 am in Room 105. Questions? Click here to email Kevin Johnson. 




Middle East info meeting this weekend (Impact Passport opportunity – “ready”)
Ever feel frustrated about what’s going on in the world, yet helpless to do anything about it? Creating change is within your reach. God is moving in unprecedented ways in the Middle East, and we can help you get engaged in several ways! Join us for info meetings. May 4 after the Saturday service (room 101) or Sunday May 5 after the 11:00 service (room 105), led by those who have been to the Middle East. Check it out!
