Lord, Teach Me to Study the Bible 

This studyby well-known Bible-teacher Kay Arthur, will lead us to examine Scripture and specifically mark the text to unlock its meaning. Our goals will be to understand what we are reading, recognize key words and concepts, discern God’ s purpose for the passage of Scripture and apply life-changing truths to everyday life. 

This is a very practical, hands-on, learn-by-doing Bible study. Biblical text and space to write insights are included in the book. Bring a pen, a few colored pencils... and a prayerful heart to complete each study and experience the Bible’ s life-changing power. 

When: Thursday afternoons, October 11-December 13 (NOT November 22) 

1:00-2:30 p.m. 
At Melissa Whitehead’s home 

Suggested donation: $9

Middle School Ministry Blog: Week of September 17, 2018
Sep 18, 2018

Happy Midweek! Hope all is panning out for this week!
This Wednesday the Middle School students will be talking about the start of the school year and goal setting to hep make this year a great year. We'll be looking at Psalm 127:1 as a framework for why having God at the center of our plans matters so much, so be sure to ask your student about this verse and take a look for yourself, too!
Sunday we'll be hearing from a very inspirational man, Nick Vujicic, about running the right race. Our identity determines our actions and responses and Nick Vujicic has a knack for making identity a reality in those he speaks to. Also, the worship band will be having their first performance this Sunday! Be praying for the hearts of our students for this newer element of Middle School Ministry.


We have our first event on September 21st! Game Night will be held at Myles and Nicole Hanson's new home from 6-8pm. There's no cost, just bring a snack and/or drink to share with the rest of those who come. We'll be playing and teaching board games as well as building friendships with others for that time. Click HERE for more details and to register. 


And our Fall Retreat is coming up on October 5-7th. We'll be camping at Lake Waubesa Bible Camp. Last day to register is on October 1st. Information can be found online and through Myles at the Middle School Room! Hope to see you there! Click HERE for more details and to register. 

See you soon!

Preschool & Elementary Ministries Blog: Week of September 17, 2018
Sep 18, 2018

Here’s what we’ll be talking about on Sunday, September 23- 

Elementary—God is Lord of All
Genesis 12-16 (The Promise/Abraham) 

This week we’ll meet Abram, or Abraham, as he will be called, the man who came to be the father of the Jewish nation. 

When Abram was 75 years old, God told him to leave his country, his people and his father’s household and go to a land that He would show him. Think about that for a minute. But God didn’t stop there. God promised Abram that he would be a great nation, and that his name would be great and that all people on earth would be blessed through him. Wow! 

The Bible says that Abram didn’t even hesitate. Abram left everything to start a new life with God. God had a greater plan for Abram. Through Abram, Jesus would be born and all people on earth would be blessed. We are part of the many nations God promised to Abram. 

At Home Weekly Tru Story

September Bible Verse: Deuteronomy 7:9


Preschool—God is a Promise Keeper
Genesis 6-9 (Noah & the Flood) 

As the years passed after God created Adam & Eve, the world filled with bad people who refused to listen to and obey God. The Bible says God was “grieved” that He had made man, so He decided to “wipe mankind from the face of the earth.” God could only find one man who loved Him. His name was Noah. 

God remembered the promise He made to send a Redeemer, so He saved Noah and his family and a few of every kind of animal from the flood. God asked Noah to build an ark, which is where they all lived for a year. When the flood had stopped and dry land appeared again, Noah, his family and all of the animals in the ark came out of the ark. God made another promise with Noah—never again to destroy all of life with a flood. God put a rainbow in the sky so all who see it would remember His promise. God is a promise keeper. 

At Home Weekly Tru Wonder

September Bible Verse: Psalm 33:1


2 Year Olds–God Made People
Genesis 1-2 (Adam & Eve) Foundational Truth: God made Me 

We’ll spend the next two weeks learning that God made people. We are made in God’s image. God created us to have relationship with Him and with others. 

This is going to be fun! Helping children understand that God made each of them—different, yet the same in many ways. Don’t we have an amazing God?! Yes we do!!!

Operation Christmas Child is Back!

Operation Christmas Child is a great way for kids to make a difference in the life of a child around the world. Kids learn to give to others and can see how God works through their gifts. All you have to do is pick up one of the shoeboxes provided, and follow the directions on the insert or online to fill the shoebox. Then return the filled shoebox to the OCC booth at Oakwood no later than Sunday, November 11th. Be sure to add a check for $9 to help with shipping charges. We’ll take them to the area drop off site for pick-up and distribution. It’s really that easy! Let’s see if we can help 200 children this year with our shoebox gifts!
