New Month, New Cause
This January, every 10 check-ins at Live Oak will provide a day of education for a classroom of 30 children in Haiti! We’re working with Causely and Hope for Haiti to make it happen. You can add #hopeforhaiti when you check in to promote the cause. For more information about this month’s charity, check out hopeforhaiti.com
Green Bag Sunday
This year we are doing something a little different with our green bags. Each month, we will change which local compassion partner is receiving our bags. To kick us off the new year, our new compassion partner, The Pregnancy Center and Clinic of the Lowcountry is our recipient. We are collecting the following items:
Diapers, Size Newborn, 2 and 3
Nursing pads for moms
Small infant toys,
Baby fingernail clippers and nail files
Baby Hair Brush & Comb
Boys outfits, size 3-6, 6-9, 9-12, or 12-18
Boys sleepers – 3 mo., 3-6, 6-9
Boys sleeping sacks, gowns, elastic or drawstring bottom, size 3-6, 6-9
Be sure to grab a green bag this Sunday and return it the following Sunday for our new partner!
Join us as we read though the Bible in 2019 as a church. Pastor Eric has created a group in the YouVerision app. This will help you remember to read through the plan and provide an opportunity to discuss the daily reading with others in the group. The plan is 25 readings per month. Each day participant will read from 4 different sections of the Bible.
If you are new to Live Oak our Launch class is THE place to get started. Spend 90 minutes learning about the vision, mission, values, and beliefs of the church. While this is Live Oak's "membership" class, it is very low key and low pressure, and is open for anyone who wants to know more about us.
Class will be held in the Connections Cafe at Bluffton School of Dance during the 10:45 service, on Sunday, January 20, 2019.
It's simple: eat with us (for free) and spend some time with our leadership. It's the first step to getting connected at Live Oak, and YOU'RE INVITED! Join us at the Ministry Center, immediately following the Launch Class on January 20th. Be sure to register so we can ensure there is plenty of food!
See you on Sunday, as Pastor Michael shares the vision for Live Oak for 2019!
