Believers since the Book of Acts have gathered regularly to share meals together. At Oasis, that tradition continues among believers. The Lord Supper is celebrated each week at The Oasis. The bread and cup are located at the back of the worship area and available to the congregation throughout the worship gathering each week to use as a personal act of worship and covenant connection with God. Supper Clubs are part the Life of The Oasis. Supper Clubs offer a time for people to share a meal together and get to know one another more. You don't have to rush home, try to cook, then rush off to a mundane Bible Study. You can just get in comfortable clothes and get together with some friends for dinner and encouragement. We are restoring the table as the center of the community instead of the TV! So get in on the revolution by becoming part of one of the monthly Supper Club. LifeTime is a potluck meal and fellowship time that we share together most months as a church family. Each month has a different theme (i.e. Mexican, BBQ, German, etc.) and provides us with an opportunity to get to know one another, have some laughs, and share life together. LifeTime is held most first Sundays after the morning worship gathering.
Volunteers are the heart of Oasis. We depend upon a host of volunteers to serve the needs of our congregation and the community.
Right Hand of Fellowship and Covenant Members are encouraged to use their gifts in the body. To volunteer at the Oasis you will need to complete a survey and attend a volunteer training orientation.
Complete the Volunteer Survey to find out current opportunities, make your interest known, and be scheduled for the next Volunteer Orientation Class. For questions about volunteering, contact Autumn Jones or Teresa Popham.
Not sure where you may want to serve, take the Gifts Test and find out your gift strengths.
Membership at The Oasis takes on two forms- Right Hand of Fellowship and Covenant Membership.
The Right Hand of Fellowship is the first step in making The Oasis your spiritual home. Receiving the Right Hand of Fellowship begins with listening to the our introductory Divin' In message and attending a Divin' In class. This class lets you know who we are and where we are headed as a church. We will be able to answer any questions you have about what we believe and it gives us a better chance to get to know you. You won't have to worry about any tests and we definitely won't force deep theological discussions or heavy responsibilities on you!
Covenant Membership is for those in the Oasis Family who desire to dive deeper into their commitment to God and the church body. Covenant Members are the voting members of the Oasis. Those desiring Covenant Membership will be able to listen to the Divin' Deeper message and attend Divin' Deeper classes offered on a regular basis. In this series of classes, we will discuss what covenant membership is, the covenant commitment you will need to make, and help you discover your gifts and how they might be used in the Body. It will also be a time where you will be able to learn more about other training within the Oasis family.
