Dear Church Family,

       Thank you!  Thank you for being faithful to Sunday School.  We had a record attendance on April 22.  Thank you for being faithful in your giving.  April will go down as one of the largest general offerings given in the life of the church.  Thank you for being faithful to read the Word of God.  I have people each week tell me how God has been speaking to them through the Word.  Thank you for yielding to the Word of God.  Realizing areas in our lives that need to be surrendered to God is critical in growing in Christ.  Thank you for praying.  Prayer is the key to God working on our behalf.  He does not work outside of prayer.  Pray for God’s power in our services.  Pray for wisdom in the future plans for Oakland.  Pray for each other.  Pray for souls to be saved.  Pray for those who lead in the various organizations.

On May 20, we will have a “Fill-a Pew” Sunday.  Invite friends, relatives, neighbors and associates to come and be a part of our services on that day.  I believe the greatest days at Oakland Baptist Church are ahead of us.  In these days let’s continue to be faithful in all things that we might see the mighty hand of God move in our midst.

Serving the Savior,

Pastor Mike
