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.
We are currently accepting nominations for our upcoming workday on September 29th. Nomination forms are in the lobby on Sundays. The last day for nominations will be August 19th. Nominations can be for yourself or anyone you know who needs a few hours of help with a project. Some ideas are: fall clean up, house work, yard work, minor home repair, deck washing, painting, etc. This is a way to show people God's love through our Oakwood family.
September 2nd through 23rd we will have sign-ups in the lobby for people who would like to help do all the work on September 29th.
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.
