2012 Christmas Offering

2012 Christmas Offering

Immanuel. God with us. It is the greatest gift ever given. It is the gift that changed the world and the gift we hold as the foundation for everything we do. Oak Leaf Church is committed leading people them from where they are to where God wants them to be. We have been blessed with so many opportunities to show and share this gift of God within our circles of influence and all over our community. But we can do ...

We Are On The Bus For MUST

We Are On The Bus For MUST

Over the last two years, we’ve tried many different ventures to effectively reach families in need in our community. It has taken us two years to realize, as generous as Oak Leaf Church is (I’d put us against any church in the country),  we just are note equipped to manage some of the sever and more immediate needs in our community.

Instead of trying to continue to “reinvent the wheel,” we’ve decided to dive head first into supporting an organization that ...

Death by Mountain Part 1

Posted by:

So I’ve been riding a bike. If you know me, you know I used to ride a bike fairly often…until I moved to Canton, Ga to “plant” a church.

Life sort of sped up and my biking slowed down…and collected dust.

Then I met a friend at church who also bikes and inspired me to get back on mine. Only he likes to bike in the woods where as I only have experience on nice, flat, relatively easy paved ...

It’s time to Multiply!

It’s time to Multiply!

Watch this video:

It’s not a new idea. In fact, it’s the original Christian idea.

Go. Make. Disciple.

We are excited to be hosting this special event on November 9 at Oak Leaf Church. For us, it will be a catalyst to begin an even better job of discipling and making disciple makers. But it is not just for our church. We are inviting anyone and everyone who desires to know and ...

Planning 2013

Posted by:

It’s sometimes crazy to think how in October I’m having meetings talking about next Summer. But getting into a room full of brilliant and amazing people to talk about the future is one of my favorite things to do.

We just got back from our annual leadership meeting and we’ve got a long list of great ideas I’m pumped about seeing come to life. Here are a few of them:

FOR THE COMMUNITY:
- caroling and coffee
- public safety family party ...

The Walking Dead

The Walking Dead

It starts on Sunday. I’ve been waiting for this for almost a year. Seriously, I don’t think I’ve ever been this excited about a new series. I love everything about it. It is my ultimate goal in life to be among the walking dead.

Even the title itself is a play on words. Obviously, there are some dead walking around that are really dead. Then there are those that appear alive on the outside but are still really dead on the ...

Going back to 2 services?

Posted by:

That’s right. August 19 we will go back to our regular 9:30 and 11:00 service times.

Yeah, I know. You’ve enjoyed the one service all summer. So have I. It’s been loads of fun for (almost) everyone, but it’s time to go back to two services. Why? I thought you might ask so I’m writing this to make sure we’re all on the same page.

  1. I promise, nothing we do at Oak Leaf Church is done without hours of prayer between the ...

Making Trinity Analogies That Don’t Work…Work

Posted by:

The Trinity is not complex, complicated, concept we have to comprehend, but rather a glorified glimpse into the gift of God. Even though the term is not found in scripture, the imagery of God actively involved in His creation in three persons simultaneously since before the beginning is found repeatedly.

Sometimes, when it’s difficult to wrap our minds around how unbelievably great and awesome God is,  we try to make it make sense to us and use analogies…much like Jesus did when ...

Q&A Series…this one is gong to be tough!

Posted by:

You guys sent in your questions and we selected 5 to talk about on Sunday. Some got combined in with others that were similar and others I’m going to try to graciously answer to the best of my ability on my blog.

Here’s the deal though: the amount of information that all of these questions warrant is going to be a daunting task to cram into a relatively short time on Sunday. This is especially true when you consider 1) how ...

Google Take The Wheel

Posted by:

Have you seen this? Seriously, by the time my kids are old enough to drive, I’ll be able to just text the car’s computer the time I want it back for curfew and if my kids are in it, great. If not, well…

:)
