This Sunday kicks off our Engagement Pathway. If you are new to Live Oak this is where you need to start! Our free Guest Lunch is Sunday, August 20th, at the Church Ministry Center (14 Palmetto Way) at 1:00pm. Join us for a relaxed afternoon with some of the leadership at Live Oak. It's a great way for you to get to know us better while we get to know you too! Please register here, if you haven't already!
The next step on the pathway is baptism. If you or your children are interested in being baptized on Sunday, August 27th, one of pastors would love to meet with you. You can request a meeting here and we will get it scheduled.
The last step on the pathway is where you learn how to get connected to others at Live Oak. Our Launch Class is on Tuesday, August 29th, at 7:00pm at the Church Ministry Center. Pastor Michael will lead this class regarding our history, beliefs, mission, values, and vision. You will also learn about classes, Bible studies, and house churches, as well as serving opportunities. You can register here for Launch Class.
Volunteer Training Day
Are you ready to serve at Live Oak? All current and potential volunteers need to attend our upcoming volunteer training day on Saturday, August 26th from 9:00am to noon at the Church Ministry Center. The training will cover expectations and responsibilities for our volunteers. You will learn what positions are still open and how you can start or continue serving! We can't do what we do every week with you. Be sure to register. If you need more information on volunteering you can find our Volunteer Guide and Volunteer Handbook here.
Leadership development is one of the most important responsibilities the church has in evangelism, discipleship, and ultimately in Kingdom expansion. (See Ephesians 2:20 and especially Ephesians 4:11-16.)
The class will be broken into 3 sections: 4 weeks of introduction and teaching about discipleship, 4 weeks of guided independent study through the major themes of scripture, 3 weeks of follow up and leadership application at Live Oak.
We will be utilizing teaching from Francis Chan and Davie Platt through the Right Now Media videos available to us as a church. During the 4 week guided independent study you will be able to access the videos at your own opportunity and pace.
This is so important that we are offering TWO weekly opportunities for training. The class will meet on Saturday mornings AND REPEAT on Wednesday evenings to ensure that attendees have an option if they can't make one or the other.
This is a FREE CLASS. As a participant, you'll receive a FREE copy of Francis Chan's book Multiply.
This class can start you on the path to financial freedom! Come and learn how to take baby steps to take control of your money (really God's money) rather than having your money control you! This 9 week course will begin on Thursday, September 21, at 7:00pm at the Church Ministry Center. The cost is $100 per couple or individual. Some scholarships will be available. If you need some assistance, contact the church office.
The Apostles Build house is almost completed! Soon the Arias/Quesada family will have a home to call their own! If you can volunteer on any of the following dates, please contact Christy Long at firstname.lastname@example.org.
September 6, 13, 20, and 27.
No experience is necessary and no tools are needed! Each of the open days is a Wednesday from 8:00 - Noon. The positions will fill up quickly, so if you are interested, please contact Christy as soon as possible!
