Hello, Oak Chapel Friends,
Another Wayne County Fair is in the books. It was a great time for all. Congratulations to those who won awards for their entries.
This Sunday is our annual Rally Day featuring the Puppets of Grace. This award-winning troupe presents an entertaining musical program that will dazzle children of all ages. Invite your friends and neighbors to enjoy the show! During worship we will also honor our Sunday School teachers and present Bibles to students in third grade. After the service, we will have a delicious luncheon featuring chicken sandwiches and sloppy joes. Please bring a side dish or dessert to share.
Below you will find announcements and other important information about upcoming events. Please review and mark your calendars accordingly.
This Sunday’s nursery assistant is April Aten. The assistant next Sunday, 9/21 is Tina Clevidence.
Sunday Evening Bible Study on Luke
Beginning Sunday, October 5, Pastor Robin will lead a six-week Bible Study on the Gospel of Luke. In this study we will explore the author’s purpose for writing this gospel and distinctive themes found in Luke including Christianity’s universal nature and appeal, the role of women in Jesus’ ministry, Jesus’ compassion for those considered “other,” as well as a series of reversals found throughout the narrative. The sessions will run from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. Mark your calendars now and plan to attend.
