Hey Everyone! Welcome to the new Oasis Blog format. We are changing up the way we communicate to everyone (I.e. no more direct emails from me)

New “Newsletter” Format

As I previously mentioned, we are no longer going to directly email everyone the weekly information. It was too cumbersome, and too hard to manage a list of new, incoming users and outgoing users, etc. Instead, we will be posting all of the information and updates on the Blog. This will make it easier for more people to find the information as it will be part of our website.

HS & MS Separated

High School and Middle School will follow the same format, but will each have their own blog feed. You can see the articles here:


Each of the blog “feeds” will show up on the Oasis Youth Web Page here: https://www.canyonsprings.org/ministries/oasis-youth-ministry/

Still want that email?

Best part is that you can still have the updates delivered to your inbox by subscribing on the website. Whenever a new post is put onto the website, you will receive it in your email later that day. You can subscribe to High School and/or Middle School. You will be able to unsubscribe at any time.

Scroll down to the “Receive Updates to your Inbox” form and follow the directions (there is a confirmation process).

IMPORTANT – You must select HS and/or MS in the blog categories on the sign-up form to receive these in your inbox. (You can select others as well)

This Week

MIDWEEKS ARE BACK! Join us this Wednesday at the Cove at 7:30 PM. We will have pizza, churros, raffles and a photo booth! Midweeks are a great place to invite someone that is new to church! We can’t wait for you kids to grow deeper in their faith with the Lord this year!!

We are starting our new series called “The Sex Series” and are talking about relationships and what the Bible says about sex. If you have any questions do not hesitate to reach out to me directly at [email protected]. Every Monday after a message I will be sending out questions in case you want to keep the conversation going at home.

We are continuing our annual Sponsor a Youth fundraiser. This is a big fundraiser for us and it it also a way we make sure every kid in the youth group is being prayed for. Please make sure your student gets their picture done. Every year we get parents that email us and are bummed because their kid didn’t make it into the fundraiser. The only reason they won’t make it into the fundraiser is if they do not get their picture done. They can get their picture done at any midweek or Sunday service. Please encourage them to get their picture done.

Next Week

Midweeks will be happening!
