New Month, New Cause


This May, every 10 check-ins will help provide a pair of shoes to someone in need. We’re working with Reach by Causely and Soles4Souls to make it happen. You can add #giveshoes. when you check in. For more information about this month’s charity, check out

Be sure to grab a bag on your way out of church on Sunday. This month we are recognizing the staff at Ridgeland Correctional Institution during Law Enforcement month. Staff inside our prisons are some of the least recognized professionals. Help us let them know we appreciate the job they do! We are collecting the following (individual packages) to put together goodies bags:



Cheese/peanut butter crackers

Granola Bars

Slim Jims or Jerky

Candy bars

Volunteers Needed


God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another.

1 Peter 4:10 (NLT)

Serving is one of the greatest actions we can do as followers of Christ! If you are not currently serving at Live Oak and would like to get involved please contact the office. We have openings in Kid’s Ministry, Student Ministry, Hospitality, Communion Prep, Set up/Tear down, and Worship. Many hands make light work! If you aren’t sure what this requires, ask! Your commitment would typically be once every 4 weeks. #youcandoit
