A Message from Pastor Kristyne
This weekend is turning out to be quite a special weekend. We will be having a guest speaker, Rev. Matt Lake. I am looking forward to hearing the word God has put on his heart. We will also have an opportunity on Sunday for those who are able to give blood and the first chance for you to have your photo taken for the church online directory. Photos will continue next weekend for those who attend on Saturday and additional chances for Sunday individuals. However, that is not all! This weekend we are also bringing back cookies to the Coffee and Cookie bar and doing a soft opening of the Sobremesa Cafe.  Aside from that we will be passing the Connection Pad in services (we are asking all people who are attending in person to start signing in on the connection pad and to stop signing in online) and passing the offering baskets again. Finally, you will notice that we have rearranged the chairs in the CLC. This means everyone will need to find a new spot to sit. Whew! That is a lot of changes! I have to say, it sure does feel good for things to be getting back to our new normal. However, with all these changes I am sure we will have a few hiccups. Patience will be needed in the coming weeks, along with more volunteers. We hope all of you have been praying and seeking the guidance of the Holy Spirit as to where you might serve both inside and outside the walls of the church. 

See you this weekend!   
Volunteers Needed!!

In this conference, we’ll hear world-class speakers and leaders address these topics and more as we seek to live abundantly in the second half of life.

Do you have an extra STUDY Bible sitting on your shelf that you don't need any more? STUDY Bibles are the #1 request I get from women in prison. While Bibles are plentiful, STUDY Bibles are harder to find, but they can make a big difference in helping women understand and grow in Christ through their devotional times. If you have a extra study Bible you would be willing to donate, please bring it to the church with a note that it is for THE OASIS? I will pick it up. Thank you so much for being a blessing! Pastor Kris
