A Monkey Wrench

by Pastor Mike on September 28, 2022

Proverbs 27:1 says “Don’t boast about tomorrow, for you don’t know what a day might bring.” That is so true. You make plans to do something and then as the old saying goes, “A monkey wrench” gets thrown into the mix. I’m talking about the spaghetti dinner and a hurricane. All the plans were being made when the Lord allowed “Ian” to develop and head our way. We are praying for the best but preparing for the worse. If you need help during this storm, Let your deacon know and we will do what we can to assist you.

October is the month we celebrate the anniversary of the church. This year makes 98 years since the start of Oakland Baptist as a mission church. We will have our Homecoming October 23rd and a meal following our morning service. Bring enough food for your family and one more. It’s a great day to invite friends to come with you. Let’s make it a great day. October is also when we have our Fall Festival. This year as last year we will have a drive-thru. We have planned a few new things this year that we believe will make it better. If you have signed up to decorate your car or to help in other ways, we will have a meeting this Sunday, October 2, following the morning service. It will be brief. The Lord is adding to our church those who have a heart to serve. I thank our Heavenly Father for that. May He continue to bring people our way, Let’s never stop inviting people to church.

God is adding babies to our nursery. With more babies we need more workers. If you are able to work in the nursery, please see Debbie and let her know you are willing to volunteer.  


Serving the Savior,

Pastor Mike
