I cannot believe in just a few weeks we’ll be starting to gather at the New Parkway Theater.  It’s been a crazy journey of God leading us, opening doors, shaping us, and calling us to what He’s doing here in the East Bay.    And it’s still just beginning!

Sunday night we shared hopes and dreams for what Oak Life might become.  It was so beautiful to hear the heart of our community and how God is shaping us to be a refuge, a place of creativity, a community of reconciliation/peace/justice, and to reflect God’s love that has no conditions to a world that needs it.  

We’ve only got 2 more vision meetings at our apartment so make sure you can make it and be a part of what God is doing!

Below is the outline/plan of the next few weeks as we get closer to launching our gathering at the New Parkway.  Be praying and be Stoked!!!!

Here is the breakdown of dates we went over on Sunday night which outline our schedule for our launch please be joining us in fasting on Thursdays and praying at 9:28 for this!:

8.24.14Vision Sunday at CrossWinds.  This will be a chance for our main sending church, CrossWinds, to pray for us and send us out.  If you can be there this day, please try so that our CrossWinds family can give us the best send off possible!  We will show up at CrossWinds at 8.

8.31.14 – First Sunday at the New Parkway.  On our first Sunday morning gathering (10am), we’ll do some worship, prayer, communion, and practice setting up.  

9.7.14- Oak Life Open House at the New Parkways.  This Sunday will be a chance for us to invite people who might be interested in hearing about Oak Life.  These people might be family or friends or people from CrossWinds.  We’ll do some worship, share the vision, and highlight different ways people can help us get started as a church!

9.14.14 and 9.21.14- For lack of better words, we’re calling these two Sundays “Soft Launch Sundays”.  Basically we’ll be gathering at 10 am and getting familiar with how a worship gathering looks for us.  

9.28.14 – Oak Life Launch Day!  After a year of God forming us as a community, this will be the official launch of our worship gathering at the New Parkway Theater.  It will be a special and memorable time as we enter a new chapter of our story.  The service will be at 10 am and we’ll do our best to invite our friends and family to join!  

In order for a church to get planted, it has to be a community effort.  So as we get closer to launching our service we are looking for people to join in a few different areas:

-Set Up Team

-Worship Team

-Kids Team.  

Please be praying about how you might be a part of what God is doing in and through Oak Life Church!!!

So stoked!!!!
