Oasis In The Water Blog Middle School (Week of 10/28/19)
Hey there! Welcome to the Oasis Middle blog!
NO MIDWEEKS THIS THURSDAY–enjoy your Halloween!
This Sunday, we’ll be starting a new series called Not a Fan. This series is based on a book of the same title by Kyle Idleman. I remember reading this book in high school and thinking, “Man, I don’t want to be a fan of Jesus.” This series is all about challenging ourselves from moving from fans of Jesus to committed followers of Jesus. We don’t want to just sit on the sidelines of our faith, we want to be on the field.
Midweeks will resume NEXT WEEK, November 7th. We’ll see you there!
CAMP SIGN UPS BEGIN THIS COMING SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 3RD.
This year, we’re headed to Thousand Pines Camp and we could not be more excited! Students will hear from a great speaker, have a blast during worship, and connect with their leaders and peers through all the incredible activities offered through the weekend. Check out this video teaser of the theme for camp this year Thousand Pines and get ready to send your student FEBRUARY 7-9.
On the Radar
Mark your calendars for Thousand Pines! We can’t wait to head into the mountains and trees February 7-9 to hang out with friends, connect with God, and have a great time.
We are looking for some drivers that would want to help get some of our City Heights friends to the Cove on Wednesdays. We only have 8 Wednesdays left in the year that we are trying to fill. The students you are helping are actually refugees from other countries so it is really hard for them to get around and have made some deep connections at Canyon Springs through our amazing scholarship opportunities for camps. They have been to our camps and have made great connections with kids here and their leaders. We want to continue to help these kids stay in the orbit of Gods Spirit and all the great stuff that is going on at Canyon Springs. If this is tugging on your heart you can sign up HERE
to help transport some students. You can sign up to pick up, drop off or both. Click on the link and read over the description on how to sign up and how to get into contact with the ministry supervisor Melissa Drake for address and timing.
Wishing your family a fun & safe Halloween,
