1. SUMMER HOT DOG ROAST – You are invited to join us for our annual Summer Hot Dog Roast immediately following our 10:30AM worship service. The church will be providing the hot dogs, condiments, table service, and beverages. Plan on bringing a yummy salad or dessert to share!  Hope to see you there!

2. 5TH SUNDAY WORSHIP – We are planning to have the Oasis children worship with their parents on months which have a 5th Sunday.  This gives both teachers and children a break.  We will have “Busy Bags” available if your child needs them.  We will also have a special time for the children during the service.
