In a Moment..

by Pastor Mike on September 1, 2020

Dear Church,


Back in March, in a moment, it seems everything changed. We all had our daily routines and like putting on the brakes in a car, we stopped to think about a pandemic. We made adjustments and began to move forward again, slowly. Now five months later we are still adjusting and being cautious to start back up things we had to stop.

I am thankful that what we have done so far has been successful. Now on September 13, we will start our Sunday PM service back. Awana will also begin that night.

For those of you who are still staying away, we miss you and can’t wait to see you walk through the doors.

One of the last things to start is Sunday School. We have decided to wait until January 3 to come back in house for SS. Sunday School classes are taking place on social media. I want to encourage you to join one of the classes that are available to you.

Last Wednesday I began a series called “Studying the Word”. We will look at three aspects 1) Observation -  2) Interpretation - 3) Application.

I believe this could be one of, if not, the best studies we have done. I would encourage you to have your Bible, paper and pen and join us each week as we learn how to study God’s Word. If you missed the first session, you can go on our website or go to YouTube at “OaklandWR” and watch it so you will be caught up.

Stay safe and may God bless each and every one of you.


Serving the Savior,

Pastor Mike
