What's to Come

by Pastor Mike Winfree on July 12, 2011


Dear Church Family,

        We had a great week in Vacation Bible School.  God blessed us with over 50 children to minister to.  The children gave $300.00 to support our Association’s “Christian Social Ministries” which ministers to 5000 families each year.  “Great job!” to all who participated in making VBS such a success.  Be in prayer for the families who are unchurched that we will be reaching out to through G.R.O.W.

Starting Sunday, July 17, I will begin a new series on Sunday mornings entitled “Together We Build” out of the book of Nehemiah.  Please make every effort to be there and bring someone with you.

Nehemiah is one of my favorite books of the Bible.  It’s a book filled with hope and promise.  It’s a book about God’s people coming together.  It’s a book about “victory”. I am absolutely convinced that God desires to bless Oakland Baptist Church.  I know He will when we join our hearts and our hands together in cooperation with Him.

Also, on that Sunday, we will be asking the men and women to fill out a survey that will help us custom build a ministry that will best meet your needs.  As God helps us develop these ministries, I believe He will save many souls through them.

Serving the Savior,

 Pastor Mike
