Becoming Trustworthy
Rev. Joanna Fontaine Crawford
Right now, our world needs people of character we can turn to, individuals we can trust to model better ways of living and to share factual information, whose honesty and integrity make them worthy of our trust.

Share the Plate
Wearing a pink ribbon won’t fight breast cancer, but this month’s Share-the-Plate partner will.
Our October Share the Plate community partner is The Breast Cancer Resource Center. The Breast Cancer Resource Center is a place where breast cancer patients ask questions, explore options, and connect with a diverse community of survivors, lifers, and thrivers who are dedicated to supporting and improving the lives of those touched by breast cancer. Through generous community support, all programs and services are offered free of charge to anyone affected by breast cancer. All designated "share the plate" donations, and half of all undesignated donations, will be given to BCRC for the month of October, which is breast cancer awareness month.

Live Oak Has a New Phone Number
We have new phones and can now use VOIP. This will save us about $100 month. It required a change in our phone number. The new # is: 737-240-3345. Feel free to give it a try! Diane gets lonely in the office by herself. The old number will be disconnected 10/31.
Change your automatic donation
Changing your automated pledge contribution to our new church management system makes giving a breeze! If you've struggled with donating money electronically to Live Oak, this news is for you.

Live Oak is saying goodbye to VANCO's complicated donation screens and adopting Breeze, which will make pledge and other church contributions easier. The assistant treasurers are asking all Live Oak contributors who contribute through VANCO to transition to Breeze by January 1 at the latest. Read more
