Hello Great Family,
"All my life, all I know
God's been good, good to my soul
Mountain high, valley low
I'm gonna sing wherever I go"
These are the lyrics from one of my favorite new songs (we will be singing it next Sunday). In case you haven't heard, the great family of Oakwood Community Church is rejoicing in the news that the final loan payment has been sent and we are currently debt free. That good news come right on the heels of the exceedingly great "Oakwood Cares" offering. You are knocking it out of the park Oakwood!! God is blessing in mighty ways!
We have something very special planned for this Sunday. We will be commissioning our "D&D" sent ones. It is our privilege to be the sending church for "D&D". They plan to head back to their place of ministry within the next few weeks. This Sunday we will hear from them and then the Elders will come forward to pray for them as we send them back. You are invited to join us in the church lobby between services for light snacks and to talk with D&D personally. If you attend the 9am service, plan to stick around for a while and join in on the fellowship. If you attend the 11am service, plan to come a little early and participate in this opportunity before the service begins.
I'll be preaching from Romans 8:35-39 this Sunday. Please read this short passage a few times before you come to participate in worship. Looking forward to being together on Sunday!
P.D. (Psalm 139)
