SOS Banbury - April 27th

We are excited to return to Banbury Cross Therapeutic Equestrian Center for our next S.O.S. event on Saturday, April 27th, from approximately 1-5 pm.  We will assist them in preparing their facility for a major fundraising event.  Volunteers of all ages are needed.  We will be involved in a lot of outdoor work and yard work so come dressed accordingly!

We will meet at the church at approximately 12:15pm and bus over in groups, exact meeting time to be determined.  See Lance Red at the counter on Sundays for more information and to sign up or use the link below.

As we get closer to April 27th, the SOS team will send out an email to all volunteers with important details like what to wear and bring, and an update on the meeting time.

Serve on saturday (s.o.s.)

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.  

Upcoming S.O.S. Projects

On June 1, 2019, we will have an S.O.S. workday here at Oakwood.  Our Annual Celebration is June 2nd, so we will clean up the grounds and take care of any indoor projects so that Oakwood is ready for our annual picnic!

Past Projects:

On April 28th S.O.S. went to Great Lakes National Cemetery and helped clean gravestones for our Veterans.

Stay tuned for our next church-wide project...

Oakwood's S.O.S. team works to organize one large outreach project each quarter, involving 70-100+ volunteers going out into our community to serve together, show the love of Jesus and make an impact.  These large service projects will be promoted through our church-wide communications and during our Sunday morning worship services.  Sign-ups for S.O.S. events will take place in the lobby on Sunday mornings leading up to the scheduled event. 

S.O.S. Special Ops Volunteers

S.O.S. Special Ops projects will take place 1-3 times per quarter and will involve smaller teams of 3-20 volunteers serving to meet more specific needs in our community, or working with partner organizations that cannot handle larger teams.  When these opportunities arise, we will send out an email to our Special Ops volunteers with details on the needs to see who is able to serve.  We are asking people to complete a simple registration process to sign-up to receive the emails and let us know what skills and resources you might have to help with certain projects.

Serve on saturday leader

Hello. It is an honor and a blessing to be able to serve at Oakwood; to be a part of what God is doing in our community for His glory. I look forward to working with you all, my Oakwood family, in putting our faith into action and growing God’ s kingdom by serving those around us. I live in Clarkston, I am single, and I'm a freelance fantasy illustrator. I also serve as Deacon and help oversee the Oakwood Cares & Benevolence Ministry with Tim May. As Oakwood's Serve on Saturday Leader I organize various volunteer workdays to help people & organizations in our neighboring communities. Know of a cool community organization we could partner with or perhaps a neighbor that needs help? Let us know.
