At Live Oak one of our values is Reckless Generosity! This includes, tithes, time, talents, & testimony. Two easy ways for Live Oak to be on the receiving end are the above 2 programs.
AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support your favorite charitable organization every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you shop at smile.amazon.com, you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as Amazon.com, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to your favorite charitable organization. You can choose Live Oak as your charitable organization!
On your first visit to AmazonSmile smile.amazon.com, you need to select a charitable organization to receive donations from eligible purchases before you begin shopping. We will remember your selection, and then every eligible purchase you make at smile.amazon.com will result in a donation.
You know you are shopping on amazon anyway, why not help Live Oak out in the process?!
The next program is Kroger Community Rewards. This program works similarly to AmazonSmile, but it does need to be updated every year during the month of August. You need to select Live Oak as a recipient. You can register your Kroger Plus Card and select Live Oak at www.krogercommunityrewards.com. Live Oak's number is 48890.
If you are new to Live Oak, the easiest way to get connected is to follow our Engagement Pathway! This pathway introduces you to our church, our leadership, and allows you to own your faith and our mission! Our next pathway kicks off with a Guest Lunch on Sunday, August 20th at 1:00pm, at the Church Ministry Center. This is a relaxed afternoon of food and fellowship with some of the leaders at Live Oak. You can register here for lunch!
The next step on the pathway is baptism. If you have never been baptized we would love to celebrate that step of faith with you. You can request a meeting here with one of our pastors to discuss baptism and address any questions you may have. Our next Baptism Sunday is August 27th.
And the final step on the pathway is our Launch Class. This membership class is taught by Pastor Michael. You will learn about our history, beliefs, values, mission, and vision. In addition you will learn how to connect to Bible studies, classes, and house churches. The next class is on Tuesday, August 29th, at 7:00pm at the Church Ministry Center. You can register here for the class.
We hope you find this pathway easy to follow and you get connected soon!
Can you believe it's almost August? Wow! Where did summer go? The staff and leadership have been busy this summer revamping our volunteer program, house churches, and discipleship in general! Next month will be the month where we give you all the information you need about all of these programs!
In the meantime, please pray about serving our congregation! There are so many opportunities to serve. You can find out about our volunteer opportunities here. On August 26th, there will be volunteer training at the Church Ministry Center from 9:00-1:00. Please plan to attend.
September will kick off a new volunteer rotation for all positions!
On August 12th, we will have a church and BSOD cleaning day. Stayed tuned for more information as we get closer to the date. This will require many hands to make light work. And kids are encouraged to help out.
It's going to be a busy month!
