This Week(Oct 21) and more at White Oak


First, let me say thank you for making yesterday a great day in worship. You made a impact, just as you have with others, in worship. Please continue to continue your prayers for those we lifted up. It is my hope that this week offers many more moments when we are able to share what God has done and is doing in our lives and our community of faith. Likewise, we will continue to receive gifts this Sunday for a local Family after the loss of their home through a devastating fire. let me also add, it’s amazing to see the way in which we are BeingForgivingServingGivingGoing!
