Oasis for Summer
Mid-Week Oasis will continue through the summer months (with the exceptions of June 20 & 27 VBS, and July 4.)  April Fetters, our kitchen coordinator, does a great job of putting these meals together each week. But, she is always in need of serving help at dinner time. If you don't have time during the school year to come on Wednesday nights, this is a great opportunity to serve, chat with people, and enjoy a good meal! 
 
Youth, this is also an opportunity to earn service hours for the 2018-2019 school year!  Take advantage and earn some of those hours before the school year even begins!
   
If you would be interested in serving at Mid-Week Oasis, please contact Kim Kuhlman.

As we explore the Art of Discipleship and our palette of Pray, Worship, Give, Serve and Witness, how would you determine the colors of activities listed? We gave you a couple...how would you color other items on our faith canvas?

Loving God
Acts 17:24-28
 
The most vital relationship we have is with our creator God, who is always with us. In God we find redemption, and time spent on this relationship is key to living our lives to the fullest potential. What might you do to foster a deeper and more meaningful relationship with God at this point in your life?
