Oak Park Announcements: September 7, 2017
This Sunday at 5:30 PM is our Family Business Meeting. I trust that you plan to attend. As members of Oak Park Baptist Church, we have a commitment to our Lord and each other to be faithful stewards of the resources and ministries entrusted to us. One of the ways we carry out this stewardship is by attending the Family Business Meetings. These quarterly meetings allow us to organize at a congregational level to tend to the ministries of the church and be aware of what God is doing through us. While these meetings do have a business component (i.e. voting on the 2017-18 budget), we also get to hear testimonies from new members and stories about what God is doing in various ministries.
I’m excited that we are set to welcome 12 new members into the body, many of whom will give their testimonies this Sunday. You’ll also receive several updates from your pastors. Pastor Nathan will tell you about how God is moving through our outreach efforts. Pastor Chris will update you on the College and Worship ministries. Pastor Joshua will tell of how God is bringing the neighborhood to us on Wednesday nights. Pastor Mike will share about the Senior’s ministry. I’ll then reflect over the past year and speak to where your pastors see God leading us in the future. Finally, we’ll conclude the night hearing from Gary Yochum who will convey his desire for eldership at Oak Park and how he’s already leading us in our Community Groups. At that time, we’ll then open it up for questions so that you have opportunity to get to know him.
Please remember we’ll have a potluck style meal. Therefore, bring a dish, side or dessert. These nights always prove to be rich in fellowship. So, don’t pass up on this time together as a church family.
