The last couple weeks we’ve been talking about the
importance of passing down a legacy of faith. Join us this Sunday as we
wrap up our Legacy series with a rich appreciation of God’s grace and
just what it means that God is in control of our lives.
Thanksgiving Fellowship Meal – A
quick reminder for those of you who signed up that this Sunday evening
is our annual Thanksgiving meal at the Oak Creek Community Center.
Please note that there will also be a free will opportunity for you to
donate to our Operation Jesus Cares Christmas Project.
Operation Jesus Cares Christmas Project –Tuesday morning, December 16th.
We’re raising $2,000 for putting together Christmas care packages for
one of the lowest income neighborhoods on the Southside of Milwaukee. We
work with the elementary school kids from Christ-St Peter’s school to
put these packages together and then deliver them door to door in their
neighborhood. So please mark the date on your calendar, and consider
volunteering for this event! If you have young kids, they are welcome to
come as well. To donate to the project, simply use your OJC envelope or make an online donation through the church website.
Create Your Own Personal/Family Crest Challenge – Don’t
forget that during this Legacy series, you all are invited to create
your own personal/family crest, or coat-of-arms, picturing the things
that are most important to you and that you want to pass on. Details
about the challenge as well as the coat-of-arms template can be found here. Please feel free to email me your family crest! And...everyone
who submits an entry will be automatically entered into a drawing to
win a restaurant gift card handed out after church on Sunday, November
