Are you kidding ME???... It’s August already?! Yep! It will be TOMORROW. I am afraid so… I know we have many of our Oasis Family on vacation right now. And some who are going away in the next couple of weeks before school begins. Wait, did I say, ‘school?’ Didn't we just finish school? Poor Kids! Happy Parents…! You know you are happy right about now, Moms and Dads. If you are on vacation or about to go on one, enjoy it. You need it. Your family needs it. Enjoy!
If you are home, or going to be home in the next few weeks, Oasis is moving forward at a clip never seen before. I am amazed at how much is happening during the time most churches put things on hold during the summer. Many even cancel one, or all services, in some places. Not Oasis Church! Incredible things are happening everyday.
God has been so gracious and kind to us with so much, that we are going to do all we can to be good stewards of what He has blessed us with. We are in for the greatest Fall season and Christmas ever... (And don’t forget our 20/20 Vision. It’s BIG and getting BIGGER. Thanks for being a part of the Oasis Vision.) But until the Fall, there are some really IMPORTANT things you should note.
*This Weekend, ONE , will bring their Youth Camp Worship & stories to our North Miami Campus, which they got to do last week at Pines. If you missed it, and you are a ‘Pines Oasis’er,’ you really should take a short trip to our NOMI Campus. Sunday services at NOMI are at 10 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. To get directions, click this link.
*Guest Speaker this Weekend at Pines is Jeremy Higdon, Pastor of Oasis Church of North Florida. He will be speaking at all our services. Jeremy was on our Pastoral team for 12 years. Five years ago, we sponsored him and Jeannine, his wonderful wife, to start a new church in Jacksonville. We are proud of what God is doing in this new church and how He is using Jeremy. Don't miss his message this weekend! I have seen it and it’s going to be good. You will be glad you came!
* First Steps: It begins next Sunday, August 10 at 10:30 a.m. This is for all of you who are New Believers, have recently been baptized or just want to learn more about the basics of being a Christian and the Christian Life. This is another step our Leadership Team is taking in order to help each of us to better understand what God created us for: ‘To Be and Make Disciples.'
*Casting Call: Our Worship Arts and Creative Ministries have a very special night for those of you who want to use their Talents and their Gifts for God’s kingdom. Sometimes people think because they don't speak publicly, teach children or sing, that they can not be used! NOT SO!! EVERYONE has God-given Gifts and Talents. And this is a great time to use them! Come and be with us, this August 6 at 7 p.m. and give it a try. There are tons of opportunities and places to serve God at Oasis!
I’ll see you this weekend. Be ready, I might just POP up anywhere this weekend at PINES. BEWARE!!!!!
