Another week is here and things are starting to change around the church! Let me fill you in on what we have coming up.
This Wednesday, May 27, is JackBox Games over Discord. We do this every Wednesday night from 6:30 - 7:45 p.m. We'd love to have your student join us for a laid back, fun time together with their friends and small group leaders. Your student just needs to grab Discord, sign in with their real name, and jump onto the Game Time! Voice Server to hear us talk and to see my screen. I will give more detailed instructions on Wednesday, but if you need some help or would like me to walk you through each step, pop me a message and I'll give you a call!
This Sunday, May 31, we're going to be finishing our discussion on communion that we started last week. We're going to look at the words "do this in remembrance of me" that Jesus repeats at the last supper. We've got some wise words from a favorite author of mine to bring in a unique perspective of communion. Join us at 10:45 a.m. on YouTube!
Next week, Wednesday, June 3, we're going to be doing JackBox games LIVE at Oakwood! Join us from 6:15 - 7:45 p.m. in the Middle School Room for Jackbox together in person and, if your students can't make it live, to play online with everyone else. We'll still be able to hang out, chat, and play online in the middle school room with others in person and over Discord. Hope to see your student there!
Lastly, the mission trip has been cancelled for this summer, but we're looking to do a service opportunity with Becci Terril, Children's Director in July! If your student is interested in doing some serving in our own communities this summer, please let me know and I'll get you on a list to start some training. We'll start soon!
If you're not connected to our "Parents of Oakwood's Middle School Ministry" or "Family Life at Oakwood" Facebook groups, you can join those groups using the links below. Both of these pages give updates of what's happening and how to get involved throughout the week for middle school ministry as well as the rest of students ministries at Oakwood on the Family Life page.
That's everything for now! Please let me know if you have any questions and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.
