August Pastors Points

Dear Church Family,

This month I want to give you a quick update on a few very important items in the life of our church.

New Worship Pastor

The search process has been under way since May.  There have been many resumes reviewed and some interviews as well, but at this time, we do not have a candidate to the point of meeting with our elder team or personnel team.  Please continue to pray for our search process for this very key position on our church’s ministry team.  We are seeking God’s direction in this search and I have all confidence that He will lead us to the person He has prepared for our church family.  In the meantime, please keep praying for Jeff Thornton and Troy Rhinefort as they faithfully serve us in leading in our worship ministry.  There are exciting days right around the corner!!

Sunday Nights @ Oakhill!!

Very soon we will be able to share all of the details about Sunday Evenings here at Oakhill.  Beginning August 30th we will be offering a full slate of ministry opportunities for every age.  Kids, students, and adults will all have something offered for them.  For twelve weeks we will be offering ministry opportunities for our children and youth, as well as, our adults.  Classes will be offered in six week sections which will allow our adults to experience two different classes in this 12 week time slot.  These classes are going to be impactful.  I plan on personally offering classes that are going to tackle some of the harder issues of our day.  We will consider the leading arguments that
culture makes on certain topics and then we are going to answer them biblically to help us be ready to give an answer to a world that is so lost and confused.  This will also help to strengthen our faith as we see clearly that God’s Word is relevant to any and every topic of our day!    I am very excited about Sunday Nights @ Oakhill!!!

Be “One Another” Christians

Now would be a great time for every person who is a member or regular attender of Oakhill to look up the “one another”passages in the New Testament and make it your goal to live these passages out in your relationships with each other.  I challenge all of us to take these passages seriously and apply them and live them out in our lives.  We need our love to grow for each other like never before!!!  Be a “one another” brother or sister.  Take God’s Word seriously and live it out in your life! 

Pray

Would you please pray?!  Pray for your elders, pastors, staff, and leaders like never before.  Satan will do all that he can to attack and undermine what God desires to do in our church and we must refuse to let Satan get a foothold.  So pray!!  Pray for
direction, wisdom, protection and a resolve for us to follow God’s direction and glorify Him above everything else.  Also, pray for your fellow brothers and sister in Christ.  Many people have so much pressing in on them that the prayers of others would mean so much.  Pray for them in your private prayer time, but also be sensitive to God’s leading and pray specifically with those that God lays on your heart.  There is power in prayer!!!  Let’s demonstrate that we believe that!!!

 

I love you and I love being your pastor!

August Kid Happenings

Hello Church Family,

This past month has flew by!  All 26 of our 3rd-6th grade kiddos had an amazing time at camp.  They were able to build friendships, learn more about themselves and their relationship with our Lord, and worship Him in an amazing way.  Oh, and conquer the Blob and Zip Line at the lake!  I am so proud of our young ones.  They represented their families and our church with great respect and love for everyone they encountered.  Thank you parents for investing in your child’s spiritual growth by allowing them to go to camp this summer.  I am confident it is the best money you will spend all year.  I want to give a HUGE THANK YOU to Amy Mehne, Nick Kessler, Jason Futrell, and Melanie Futrell for going with us to camp.  You are a blessing to our children’s ministry.  Thank you for your lack of sleep, exhausting days of walking up and down hills to help a child, being away from your loved ones with no cell service, and nurturing our church kids.  Your time and love for them is very appreciated.

Parents, this coming month your child will promote to their next grade.  On August 9th their current teacher will introduce them to their new teacher and classroom and the following week (August 16th) they will start in their new class.  We will have a few new teachers along with a new concept for 3rd and 4th grade.  Please a
refer to the list to see which room and teacher your child will have.

Thank you for the  opportunity to love on your kids.
