Pastor's Point - October 2021
Dear Church Family,
This month I want to share with you two exciting announcements for our church family. First, I want to inform you that on Saturday, October 30th, beginning at 4pm, we will have our church-wide Fall Festival event at our North Campus. This free event is a great opportunity to come and be with church family, but it is also a great opportunity to invite your friends, family, and neighbors to bring their kids out for a great time of fun. We will have live music, inflatables, food, fun, firepits, and of course there will be candy for all the kids as well. I am really looking forward to being together as church family, but also looking forward to meeting new friends as well. Make sure to pick up your invite cards at the Welcome Center to help you invite all those you want to come to this event.
Second, I want you to know that starting on October 17th, I will begin to share exciting news as to the development of our North and South Campuses. Many of you are aware that we purchased our North Campus back in March of 2020 to help to provide for the needs of our growing ministry. We are so thankful that God led us as a church to this strategic piece of property so close to our existing church campus (south campus). Beginning on Sunday, October 17th you will receive important information over the course of the following five weeks that will help you understand the details, scope, and excitement of our plan to develop both campuses.
Over my 15 years of service to Oakhill as your pastor, I have seen God bless as we have come together for the common purpose of investing in and strengthening our church for the spread of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I have seen God move on the hearts of His people to provide what was needed to build and leave a legacy of Gospel ministry right here on Oak Hill Road. I have seen people saved and discipled. I have seen children born, raised, invested in with the Gospel, baptized, and now serving in the church. I have seen families joined together in the covenant of marriage, and I have seen families attacked and on the verge of divorce, only to see the power of the Gospel restore their marriage for the glory of God. I have seen people sacrifice time, talent, and treasure for the good of others and for the glory of God. God has unmistakably worked through Oakhill throughout the years, and He now has us at the moment to where we have the joy of investing once again in the church to see God continue to do these things for the next fifty years through our church family. I want to be a part of leaving a legacy that will outlive me. I want to be a part of leaving a gospel legacy for my children, and for my grandchildren! Exciting days are right around the corner! I am so thankful to be your pastor! God has so much more for us to do for His glory!
I love you and I love being your pastor!
