Revival 2016

by Pastor Mike Winfree on November 1, 2016
Dear Church Family,
       Saturday, October 22nd, I met with the Church Council for four hours.  We planned and discussed many things related to Oakland Baptist Church.  It was a great meeting from my perspective.  A lot of great ideas were shared and we planned out the 2017 year.  I am thankful for every person who serves on our Church Council.  Each person has a heart for the Lord and is committed to giving 100%.  I am, and I believe I can say that the whole council, is excited about the 2017 year at OBC.
Before we get to 2017, we still have a couple of very important months left in 2016.  Our Revival begins on November 6 with Bob Pitman, Bob Smith, and Jeff Cleghorn. Please do everything you can to be here and bring someone with you. The WBW Annual Christmas Bazaar is Saturday, November 19 and is always a big hit. Many will be on our property who we will have the opportunity to speak to and invite to church.  November is also the month that has been designated as “Thanksgiving”.  As believers, we are thankful every day for what Jesus has done for us, but on November 20, we will come together to celebrate Thanksgiving with a meal, fellowship and an encouraging word.  Make plans to join us.  On the 27th, we have our annual “Hanging of the Green” Service.  It is a night where we learn of Christmas, we sing, and together, we decorate the church for the Christmas season.
In December, we all work together to present Jesus through the Live Nativity.  Pray much for those who will come, for good weather, for wellness among the cast and crew, and for the performance itself.  All participants, please be where you need to be at the appointed times. May God honor His name through this presentation.

Serving the Savior,
Pastor Mike
