Small Groups

Our small groups program (called Oasis Small Groups) is designed to gather people who share a common interest into fellowship and the practice of spiritual disciplines, such as prayer, study of scriptures, service to others, and mutual support. Our current small groups are listed below, but new ones are forming often. All of our groups are open to new participants. If you have an idea for a new small group, contact the church office or a member of Session.

Fellowship

Our Fellowship Committee brings people together through activities and group gatherings. This committee sponsors a monthly potluck after the 2nd service on the 2nd Sunday of the month. They also plan, prepare, and staff meals for our annual congregational meeting, our Easter Breakfast, our Strawberry Festival, our Church Picnic, and the Advent Festival. It’s not just about the food, though, this committee also organizes fun activities for the whole family, such as the annual Road Rally and trips to Toledo for Mud Hens games. Check out the “What’s Happening Now and on the Horizon” tab for details on upcoming activities.

Elders

Our Elders form our Session, our governing body. Each member of session is also responsible for heading one of our committees or ministry teams. In addition, it is an important goal of our Session to encourage and support each congregant in discerning his or her personal call to ministry. Session seeks to aid new ministries in forming under the direction of our Mission Statement and our Guiding Principles. We delight in serving God together! If you feel God is calling you toward a new or existing ministry, please do not hesitate to contact a member of Session.
