Dear Church Family,

        Many years ago I was working on a couple’s house and I noticed that the foundation had settled and the house had shifted on it’s foundation.  I told the couple and they called in a structural engineer to take a look.  He determined that they would have to dig down to remove the bad dirt and put in good dirt in order to shore up the foundation.

        After examining every area of ministry, I have discovered some foundations that need to be shored up.  Over the next six months we will take the necessary steps to create solid foundations in every area. 

      The foundation is the first thing that is built when constructing a building.  It is the most important as it will determine the stability of the entire structure.  Having the right people in the right places in a church can make the difference as to how a church grows.  I believe God has the right people here at Oakland and will bring more in the days ahead.  Let’s make all the adjustments necessary to shore up the foundation so we can begin to see the structure take shape.

Serving the Savior,

 Pastor Mike
