Serve on Saturday (S.O.S.) is Oakwood's local outreach ministry. We love our community and want to serve and make an difference in any way that we can. Sometimes we'll partner with other local organizations to help them accomplish their goals and mission. At other times we may send out dozens of smaller teams to homes and work sites around our community to help those in need.

Our Most Recent S.O.S. Service Projects:
On May 19th we worked "at home" on our own Oakwood building. Many projects were completed inside and out, as well as some deep cleaning and decluttering. A big "Thank You" to all of our hardworking volunteers, the building looks great!
On April 28th S.O.S. went to Great Lakes National Cemetery and helped clean gravestones for our Veterans.
