Ladies Night Out

We can’t wait to be together Friday evening September 9th beginning at 6:30. It will be a sweet night as we look at what it looks like to have our yes on the table and celebrate the places God has called us to when we surrender to His ways.

We will worship together and hear the stories of women who have said yes in faith knowing God would lead them and go before them in the journey. This night will highlight missions in a beautiful way as Suzanne will share her story of life on the mission field overseas.

We would love for you to bring a friend and favorite appetizer or snack food to share. Please sign up here!

discover oak leaf

Discover Oak Leaf

Would you like to learn more about Oak Leaf Church? Do you have questions but are not sure where to go for answers? Are you ready to become a partner? Discover Oak Leaf is for you!

This session is designed to help us get to know each other better and look at ways we can prove God’s love together. You will hear from the Elders about who we are and why we do what we do as well as provide an opportunity for you to get answers to any questions you may have.

Discover Oak Leaf is held every second Sunday of the month at 9:45 AM (during the first service). This way, we can provide childcare and be done in plenty of time to make the 11:00 service. We will also provide breakfast items just in case you had to rush out the door and forgot the pop tarts in the toaster.

If you would like to attend, please let us know you are coming by filling out this short form. If you have questions, feel free to email carrie@oakleafchurch.com.

New Series: No Matter What

If you spend much time watching the news, reading social media, following politics, or simply living life, you’ll find plenty of circumstances that could rob your joy and bring you down. However, the story of Jesus and the hope we have in the cross should keep us rejoicing no matter the situation. Does it?

Paul, hearing the Christians in Philippi were going through some hard times, writes a letter to encourage them to keep rejoicing while doing their part to help spread the good news of Jesus. Since he wrote the letter while sick, bruised, battered, and imprisoned in chains, his message of “joy…no matter what” came through loud and clear.

During our new series aptly titled, No Matter What, we will walk through Philippians and study the many wonderful lessons and reminders Paul gave us in his letter. Considering much of the division and negativity we currently sense in our nation, this could be one of the most aptly timed series we have ever done.

chick-fil-a_5k

We Need Volunteers!

When the owner/operators of all the Chick-fil-as in Cherokee County asked us if we would help them with an event to benefit the Cherokee County Special Olympics and the Cherokee County Education Foundation, we gave them an emphatic yes. We love it when we’re blessed with opportunities like this to prove God’s love. 

On August 6th, there will be over 1000 people right down the street outside our front door gearing up for the second Chick-Fil-A Connect Race Series in Canton, Ga. What a fantastic opportunity to display God’s love with action for the people in our community.

What do they need from us? 50 volunteers.

That’s it. 50 people willing to get up early and serve those who have come out to the race. Yes, it is early. Volunteers need to be there at 6:00 AM to help setup and prepare for registration which begins at 7:00. The actual race begins at 8:00.

Don’t think about how early it is on a Saturday. Think about how throughout the event, you will have the opportunity to build relationships and prove God’s love with participants and their families while serving in a vital role.

Plus, you will get a free t-shirt and the whole thing is done by 11:00.

This is our next Big Give so let’s prove God’s love in a huge way. Sign up to serve our city HERE.

Questions/Answers:

1. Will there be childcare?

Yes. Childcare will be available in the Oak Leaf Kids building. Please email christine@oakleafchurch.com to let her know how many kids you need childcare for.

2. Can I volunteer and run in the race?

Yes, you just need to mention that on the registration form under “special concerns” so they know. You will just need to register to run in the race (it is a fundraiser as well). You will be done by 8:00 to run. Most likely, you will help most with setup/tear down.  

3. Can I volunteer later that 6 AM?

Yes, you just need to mention that on the registration form under “special concerns” so they know that you will be arriving later than 6 AM.  These people will mostly be helping clean and pack up everything or cheering the racers on. 

4. Where do I check in to volunteer?

All volunteers need to go to the gazebo in Cannon Park. There will be a registration tent.

We can’t wait to be together Friday evening July 15th beginning at 6:30. We are going to do a fun craft, eat some great food, hear a story of the faithfulness of Our Father, worship together, and meet some new friends.

caveman brunch 2016

Caveman Brunch

Has caveman and brunch ever gone together? No. Until now. That’s what men do. We take the impossible and make it reality. We take something that shouldn’t work and we fix it so it does. That’s what caveman brunch is, a potluck style gathering for men.

When is the Caveman Brunch? The 16th day of month of July in the year of our Lord 2016. 11:30 AM until we feel like being done. Let us know if you plan to attend by CLICKING HERE. We will need time to prepare your presence.

Why the Caveman Brunch? Simply, it’s bunch of guys being guys around a bunch of other guys with some breakfast and/or lunch food items thrown in. A special guest will share his testimony and then we are going to shoot stuff and play games.

What should I bring to the Caveman Brunch? A food item preferably made with bacon, butter, and other delicious ingredients. It should make Paula Deen blush. We kindly ask you leave the hipster granola, Napa Valley inspired light fare at home.

Where is the Caveman Brunch? It’s at Blue Moose Farms (a.k.a. Gilbert Simpson’s house in Jasper). Most men will just follow their instincts and the smell of bacon. If you need directions, just ask and someone will point towards the general vicinity for you.

Who can come? Men. If that is still confusing, you should probably not attend. If you are a man, you are welcome. If you are a real man, you’ll bring other men with you. Everyone knows men travel with a posse or in packs like wild timberwolves.

Bring your artillery, ammo, and appetite and get ready to have a good time.

 

 

grad sunday

ConGRADulations!

Every year we want to honor and celebrate our graduating Seniors at Oak Leaf Church. They work very hard throughout their high school careers to get to this wonderful moment in their lives and we, as a church, want to congratulate them on a job well-done. This year we are celebrating with the families of Ethan Lara and Katelyn Quinones.

Ethan is the son of Johnny and Niki Lara and will be graduating from Excel Christian Academy in Cartersville. He is graduating with honors, and also being recognized for community service, National Beta Club Society, performing arts, National Spanish Honors Society, the Etowah Foundation for Academic Excellence, and an AJC cup winner. Ethan will be attending The University of Tennessee, and majoring in materials science & engineering. Ethan has served at Oak Leaf for many years with production. We are thankful for his service.

Katelyn is the daughter of Yamil and Sylvia Quinones and will be graduating from Creekview High School in Canton. She is graduating with academic honors, along with honors from the National Honor Art Society, National Thespian, and the Spanish Honor Society. In the fall, Katelyn will be attending Hofstra University in Hempstead, Long Island with a Presidential scholarship. She has volunteered faithfully at Oak Leaf Church since the beginning and is a much-loved teacher in the Ferris Wheel class.

As a church, let’s commit to pray for Ethan and Katelyn as they step into the next chapter of their lives, and for their parents as they send out their children into the world to do great things for Christ.

Shower of Blessings/Ladies Night Out

Our next Ladies Night Out (May 13th at 6:30 PM) will look a little different as we celebrate and honor some very special expectant moms by hosting a community baby shower. We have the unique opportunity to display God’s love together through providing a baby shower for women that could use a little extra love, encouragement, and support. Our heart is that these sweet ladies know that there is a group of women that want to pray and support them in this next chapter of life.
We have the honor of welcoming Britney Price who will be sharing the journey The Lord has placed her on after loosing her sweet husband Patrick. Her story alone will leave you more in awe of The Savior as you hear her speak about what she has walked through during this very hard season.
We intentionally want those being honored to leave with a group of women that are going to pray and be their support system in the season ahead. We look forward to how this evening will be used in the hearts and lives of each one of us this evening. RSVP here.

Summing the Psalms – Week 6

We are seen as faithful and blameless if we trust the One who was first faithful and blameless. Psalm 18:20-27

God’s way is perfect. His word is flawless. Blessed are those who don’t take that truth for granted. Psalm 18:28-33

resurrection-sunday

Resurrection Sunday (Easter)

Despite the name it is more commonly known by, this particular Sunday is the day we celebrate Jesus proving He was God and everything He said and did could and should be trusted. March 27th is Resurrection Sunday.

As we get ready for one of the most exciting Sundays of the year, we recognize we need to make more room to welcome more people. That is why we are going to have three services on Resurrection Sunday. 8:30, 10:00, and 11:30.

Three services means there is something for everyone.

  • 8:30 is for those that like to get up early to attend a sunrise service, but it is not so early the nocturnal animals are still roaming about.
  • 10:00 is for those that know Cracker Barrel is going to be even more of a mad house than it usually is and have already made lunch plans to show off their new Easter clothes.
  • 11:30 is for those that love to sleep-in, but also know how great Resurrection Sunday is gong to be.

There is no greater Sunday to invite someone to church with you. On this particular Sunday, most people are already planning to go to church somewhere. It might as well be with you. Of course, they will not know you’d love for them to come to church with you unless you tell them.

So tell them, and let’s see what God does on this special day in the hearts of all those that worship with us on Resurrection Sunday at Oak Leaf Church.

egg fest 2016_DATE

Egg Fest 2016

It is time for our first Big Give, and this year, we are making it bigger than ever.

Egg Fest is March 19th from 11:00 AM – 3:00 PM

Egg Fest is an event that purposes to bring families together in support of our community. There will be live performances all day, our popular indoor Glow-in-the-Dark Egg Hunt, an inflatable fun-zone, pictures with live animals, vendors, food trucks, an eating contest, and much, much more with all proceeds going to benefit the Goshen Valley Boys Ranch. It is going to be an amazing day.

To make it all happen, we need your help. There are two ways you can get involved, and we hope you can do both.

  1. Volunteer. We need as many volunteers as we can get to help pull all of this off. From security to egg hunt operation to candy redemption to registration to everything else, we have a role for everyone.
  2. Donate Candy. We need loads and loads of individually wrapped non-chocolate candies. There will be large black barrels near the coffee bar to begin collecting candy for Egg Fest on Sunday morning.

To volunteer, feel out the registration form HERE.

If you would simply like to attend with your family, cantoneggfest.com.

If you have questions or need more information, email info@oakleafchurch.com.

Egg Fest is going to be amazing. We can’t wait to see the impact as we seek to prove God’s love to all those involved.

Summing the Psalms – Week 5

The good God provides while being by our side is more than can be described. Psalm 16:7-11

If you do what is right or are repentant when you don’t, be confident God will protect you from the lies of your foes. Psalm 17:1-9

Self-gratification is a dangerous game that appears to reward but ultimately destroys. Psalm 17:10-15

The power of prayer is unmatched by any other practice. Psalm 8:1-6

Even if you can’t see it, when God fights for you, He brings the full force of his faculty. Psalm 18:7-19

 

Summing the Psalms – Week 4

When others say to quit, God says, “I’m still here and I’m still in control.” Hold on to God and never look back. Psalm 11

When the words of others sting, remember the words of God save. When their words hurt, God’s words heal. Psalm 12

When God seems distant, draw close to his unfailing love through prayer and peace will follow. Psalm 13

Our heart, on its own, does not desire God, but God desires to know us and change our heart. Psalm 14

Speaking truth in love, having integrity towards others, and demonstrating generosity draws us closer to God. Psalm 15

Anything you seek other than God only leads to searching more. Fulfillment comes through seeking Him. Psalm 16:1-6

Summing the Psalms – Week 3

The happiness of those who practice evil is an illusion. Evil is always a trap that eventually snares. Psalm 7:12-17

As big and majestic as God is, we are still at the forefront of his mind. That should motivate us to give Him praise. Psalm 8:1-9

A thankful heart gives praise for God’s glorious deeds. Psalm 9:1-12

Those who don’t think they need God will forever not have him. Those that do believe they need God will have him forever. Psalm 9:13-20

God will always seem far away when life’s choices are the kind you wouldn’t want Him near to see. Psalm 10:1-11

We can know God cares about the afflicted and oppressed because He became afflicted and oppressed. Psalm 10:12-18 (Is 53:3-8)

 

Summing the Psalms – Week 2

Nothing else should be allowed to compete for your heart. Seek God alone and your heart will be filled with Joy. Psalms 4:1-8

Crying out to God should be accompanied by a heart check and patient expectation. Psalm 5:1-6

While the variety of hostile forces around us try to bring us down, God wraps his protection around us and lifts us up. Psalm 5:7-12.

Even when he feels incredibly absent, we must remember God is still there. His love is unfailing and He will never fail us. – Psalm 6:1-10

Why care what others think? Only God’s opinion matters. If they’re right, own up to it and grow. If they’re not, let it go. Psalm 7:1-5

Rely on God to do what only he should do and what only he can do. He will see to justice. Psalm 7:6-11

Summing the Psalms – Week 1

God is not intimidated. He laughs at those that band together against him. Psalm 2:1-4.

My way will lead to destruction. His way leads to life. There is no escape from Him, only refuge in Him. Psalm 2:5-12

God provides. God protects. Have confidence He will get you through the storm. Psalm 3:1-8

New Series: Rumors Of God

We begin the new year diving into one of the most dynamite books in the entire Bible. Galatians lays out the explosion of truth about the Gospel being not only for those who do not yet believe, but also the foundation of faith for those that do.

The problem is, with the business of life, sometimes God gets regulated to the background and the true gospel message seems more like just a rumor. In Rumors of God, the first of three series that will take us through the entire epistle, we will seek to trade secondhand knowledge for firsthand faith.

five-year

Five Year Anniversary

It all started in January 2011. Can you believe it has been five years!

Join us January 31 at 5:00 PM as we celebrate all God has done over the last five years in a special night of worship.

We have several ways we are going to remember the last five years. This is definitely an evening you will not want to miss.

Summing the Psalms

I picked up a copy of Tim and Kathy Keller’s new devotional through the Psalms entitled Songs of Jesus just before Christmas and starting the daily reading just before the new year. If you know me, you know how much I like Tim Keller and the Psalms. This seemed like a combination too good to be true. The brief commentary is good and I do enjoy how the psalms are broken up. However, I decided what I really wanted to do was read the Psalms for myself and give my own brief commentary.

So here is what I am doing (if you follow me on Twitter, you probably have already figured it out). I have committed to read through the Psalms this year and provide a short summary of what I read each morning. Once I figure out what I broke, it will show up on Facebook too. The thoughts are simply my take away from what I read and not intended to be a genuine commentary on the passage. There is only so much I can say in 140 characters or less.

Let me know what you think. If you like it, retweet it and share it with your friends.

‘Tis the Season

‘Tis the season for joy, peace, generosity, and hope. Yet many of the images we see these days of Christmas show the opposite. From fighting over black Friday shopping deals and to over the top home decorations, have we forgotten what Christmas is all about? In our new sermon series beginning November 29th, we will look at a passage not normally associated with the Christmas story to help remind us what al the fuss should really be about.

2015 A Rockin’ Christmas Eve Eve

Get ready to rock the night away?

Join us December 23rd at either 6:00 or 7:30 PM for a jam-packed hour-long Christmas show that will have you celebrating the most exciting time of the year.

This family-friendly concert will feature some of the most fabulously fun Christmas songs as well as some faithful favorites performed by some of the most talented singers and musicians in Cherokee County. There will also be a few suprise visits from some pretty famous people that neither you nor your kids will want to miss (wink wink).

We are offering this show for FREE as a Christmas gift for our community. Invite your neighbors. Invite your friends. We’re even offering childcare* for children four and under so everyone can have a good time!

Space is limited so get your tickets NOW before they run out at christmaseveeve.com!

If you have any questions or would like more information, please email or call us anytime.

* To take advantage of the free childcare, you must notify us no later than Dec 18 by emailing the total number and ages of your children to info@oakleafchurch.com. Children four and under do not need a ticket.

2105-christmas-offering

2015 Christmas Offering

From the wide variety of service projects led by our groups to another successful year of Big Gives to, most importantly, all those who made decisions to follow Christ and make their faith public through baptism, 2015 has been a banner year! As 2016 quickly approaches, we want to be as ready as we can be for all God has in store for our fifth year in ministry.

Every year we ask you to prayerfully consider giving above and beyond to our annual Christmas Offering. It is not a plea for money, but rather a prayer for God to use those that call Oak Leaf Church home to do more together than any one of us could do alone. This year, the Christmas Offering is more important than ever as it will help us fund three things:

  1. New Space. Now that we are back under one roof, utilizing the last available office space in our building will allow us to use our building to its fullest potential until our lease ends in two years. That will also give us time to save and prepare for something a little bit bigger and a lot more permanent. A portion of the Christmas Offering will go towards building out the new space and saving for our next space.
  2. Budget Short Fall. Our annual budget has always been based on 90% of the previous year’s donations which has helped us be good stewards and establish responsible financial practices. Though it has not deeply effected our ability to do ministry, we have experienced a decrease in donations for the first time in our history. A portion of this Year’s Christmas Offering will help us take care of needs we missed this year and prepare for a smaller budget for 2016.
  3. Local Ministry Partners. We have always believed in order to develop a culture of generosity, we have to first set an example of generosity. It is an example first set by God himself for us to follow. Before we build out any space or cover any budget line item, we will give 10% of what we raise in this year’s Christmas Offering to bless local ministry partners that are  doing a mighty work in our community.

Our goal is $55,000. Please prayerfully consider contributing to this year’s Christmas Offering. We will be taking the offering on December 20th and you can give that Sunday or any Sunday leading up to it by marking your donation as Christmas Offering. You can also donate by using our app, or online at oakleafchurch.com/give.

As we continue to grow, we hope and pray you will continue to support us as we get ready to head into the next chapter of our journey to Prove God’s Love.

If you have any questions, feel free to email info@oakleafchurch.com at any time.

2016-winter_celebration

2015 Winter Celebration

Christmas time is one our favorite times of the year. We love all of the parties, good food, and great times with family and friends. And since one of our core values is Respond to God’s Love Together, we want to come together by throwing a special Christmas party just for you:

Winter Celebration on December 6th at 6:00 PM.

We are providing all of the turkey, ham, and drinks, but are asking everyone who is coming to bring either a side dish or a dessert. This is a perfect time to make that favorite holiday dish you are dying to share.

To make it even more fun, we are going to do a white elephant gift exchange. That means you need to find a hand-me-down or re-gift or cheap something to wrap up and put under the tree. We will all draw numbers and there is no telling what you will go home with.

If you are planning on coming, please RSVP HERE. This is a family event, but there will be childcare for children 5 in case that is something you would like to utilize.

This is also a great opportunity to bring a friend you have been trying to get to come to church. They may not be ready for Sunday morning, but it is hard to pass up free food and fun gifts.

Kid’s Christmas Pageant

Set the evening of Sunday, December 13th aside to celebrate Jesus as the greatest gift of all,  as well as our amazing group of children at Oak Leaf Church.

It’s bound to be one fantastic evening!  Kids will be singing and performing the Christmas story in their own special way.
