Schedule Swap! Small Groups Move To THIS Wednesday!
Due to some logistics challenges, we’re doing a schedule swap! Small Groups move to this Wednesday, February 10, and Midweeks move to February 17! (Previously, we published our schedule with Midweeks on February 10 and 24, and Small Groups on 2/17.) What does that mean? Rather than meeting at The Cove, this week your students will meet in small groups throughout the area in backyards, parks, etc. For their specific location, you should be hearing very soon from their small group leader. If you don’t hear soon, feel free to email me. I’d be happy to help you get that information.
Upcoming Calendar Dates
With that schedule swap taken into account, here’s our new February dates:
- Sundays at 9 am: Canyon Springs Church in the Park for the whole family! More information and pre-registration here.
- Wednesday, 2/10*: OASIS Small Groups. *Various times and locations. Groups may also change nights to best accommodate all student schedules. Contact your son/daughter’s small group leader or Luke for more information.
- Wednesday, 2/17, 7:30–9:00 pm: OASIS Midweeks at The Cove. Pre-register here.
- Wednesday, 2/24, 7:30–9:30 pm: OASIS Midweeks at The Cove. Pre-register here.
We’ll be releasing our plan for March soon. We’ve got a lot of exciting stuff in the pipeline that we can’t wait to tell you about!
A Super Bonk
If you’ve heard Jack say anything about my family, then you know that we seem to have a bit of curse about us. From chronic migraines to broken arms, and now stitches, Max has finally earned his Angus family badge of honor and shown he is not immune from the family curse!
During the third quarter of that “big game” that was on TV this weekend, Max was playing “hide and sink” with his friend Thomas. If you’d like to hear the story, I’ll let Max tell you his version in my wife Paige’s Instagram post below. But spoiler alert, it ends with 3 stitches.
I share that with you partly as a fun way to give you a window in our little world, and partly as an encouragement that we’re all in this together. We’re all just trying to figure out this whole parenting thing, trying to figure out how to protect and love our kids well while also letting them have the freedom to grow up. It happens too fast.
But, I know, for some of you, you long for the days when it was as simple as a bandaid or a trip to urgent care and some stitches to take care of the wounds that your kid is carrying. At OASIS this spring, we’re going to be diving into the journey of following Jesus. As we heard Chad talk about this weekend in church, Jesus is the source of life and the source of living water that can bring life, hope, and healing to those wounds that stitches can’t fix.
Maybe your son or daughter has taken a break from OASIS or hasn’t ever returned since before the first shut down. Maybe they’ve been struggling in this season of isolation. Maybe they’re carrying pain that you don’t know how to fix. As we head into this new season, I encourage you to encourage your kid to get to OASIS and to their small group. We can’t fix everything, but Jesus can. More than sports, more than a perfect SAT score, more than academic performance, your kid needs a connection to Jesus. That’s why were, and that’s why we’re going to keep doing our best to create a space for students to connect with Jesus and others. If you have any questions or concerns about how or why we do what we do, please reach out and let me know.
Until next time, I’m praying for you and your family!
