From Pastor Jim, January 10

THE HEARTBEAT OF OUR CHURCH

I hope you will be with us for the new message series HEARTBEAT. Every church has the same mission - it’s contained in the Great Commandment and the Great Commission given by Jesus. We are to love God with all of our hearts and love others by sharing Christ with the world.


We express our mission in this way:

“Oak View exists to connect people to the life-changing love of Christ.”

All churches are called to help people find and follow Jesus. But Oak View does this uniquely. Like a fingerprint, every church has a unique set of characteristics that set it apart from others churches. Over the next several weeks we’ll be exploring what sets our church apart in its mission to change the world. We’ll share what we’re most passionate about and what we’re willing to do to make our vision a reality.


FINANCIAL PEACE & GRIEFSHARE

We’re starting two new groups on the same day that both have the potential to change your life. Financial Peace University will give you the tools to reshape your financial future. GriefShare is a powerful support group for anyone who has gone through the loss of a loved one – regardless of how long ago it occurred. Both start on Tuesday night, January 16, and meet in the BEC Building. Call the church office for more information.


See You Sunday for HEARTBEAT,

Pastor Jim
