FUNDRAISING OPPORTUNITY:

Scrip Fundraising Shop with gift cards in everyday categories including groceries, gas, restaurants and more. A percentage of each gift card purchased goes directly to your student's account. A Scrip order is placed the third Friday of every month. 

Go to www.shopwithscrip.com for more information. If you do not have an account with Scrip, you will need Enrollment Code 6B598B26539L6 to join the OSM group.
 
In addition to Scrip Fundraising these are other quick and easy ways to raise funds for summer events, upcoming retreats, and future mission trips.  
 
  • Concession Stand - The concession stand at the Oakwood Church Mission Field ballpark needs workers every Tuesday night now through July. The shift runs from 5:45pm until 8:15pm. Students can raise funds through the sale of the concessions. One adult leader and 3 students are encouraged to sign up for each date. Click HERE to sign up.
  • Church Directory/Family Pictures - Students are needed to help staff each photo shoot for about 2 hours on May 21, 22, 30, and 31, and June 11, 12, 25 and 26. Students will sell $5 coupons to those having their photos taken. LifeTouch will give all proceeds from each coupon to the student seller. Click HERE to sign up.
Please contact Carrie Ziebell if you have questions about any of these fundraising opportunities.

Dear Parents~

Please Note… 

Sunday, May 27th – One service at 9am
To celebrate the Memorial Day weekend, we will have a Family Sunday for everyone at 9am. Childcare will be provided for little ones from birth through 3 years old. Everyone else is invited to worship together. There will be a special kids sermon too! 

Summer Program Begins June 3rd
On Sunday, June 3rd we’ll transition to our summer team of volunteers, which for most of our kids, means new leaders. If your child has difficulty with transitions, I encourage you to let them know in advance to help make this a win-win. Children will remain in their current classrooms through the summer, which ends on Sunday, July 29th. Kids will “move up” to their new classes in September. Watch for more information later this summer. 

August is Family Month
Here at Oakwood we all worship together each Sunday of the month of August at 9am.

 

 

SpringHill Day Camp

We still have some scholarships available if you know a child who would like to attend camp this summer. Click HERE for more information.

 

Kids Quest Offering—VBS Supplies for Oakwood Teens

Our final offering came to $11.10, bringing our total to $167.39. Praise Jesus! 

Josh Larson, Student Ministries Director, will be using these funds to purchase supplies for the upcoming VBS at HeartLove Place. In addition, we’ll be doing a special Book Drive on June 3, 10, & 17 to help HeartLove create a library for the children who come. 

Thank you for being part of this ministry to share the love of Jesus with kids in Milwaukee!

Hey all!

This Sunday, Quest 56 is going to be talking about testimonies: what they are, how powerful they are, and how to write and share them! We'll also hear testimonies from students. I'll be giving each student a worksheet with instructions for how they can write their testimony out, so take a look at those after class and help your child along through the week!

FUNDRAISING OPPORTUNITY:

 
Each month (third Friday) we place an order for Scrip cards*. 

It’s very popular to purchase gas and grocery gift cards to pay for normal expenses as well as gift cards for the holidays. By doing this you earn rebates (rates differ for each company) that we record by individual student. Students can then use their earnings to help pay for youth trips and events. This can be a very profitable fundraiser.

Go to www.shopwithscrip.com for more information. If you do not have an account with Scrip, you will need Enrollment Code 6B598B26539L6 to join the OSM group.
 
*You can also pay for your gift cards online with PrestoPay™. When you use PrestoPay, your order payment is transferred securely via ACH electronic debit.
