April 2011 newsletter
I am so excited to write this newsletter! So much has happened the past 6 weeks. There is no way that I can share everything, so let me just hit the highlights. Our "Why the Y?" series was incredible. It was such an honor for me to be able to share how God has placed us as a church in the Greenwood YMCA and what that means for our church. Being a church IN a YMCA and not just a church AT a YMCA means so much more than 99.9999% of people realize. It means being part of what I believe could be one of the greatest church plant movements in history.... Literally! The end of April will also be the end of our "Can You See Him?" series. This series, too, has been very powerful! Over the past six weeks our attendance skyrocketed to numbers that we have never seen! Our average attendance is up from where it was at this time last year by 250%! That is so incredible! While all of this and so much more has been taking place, we have also had the opportunity to support The FCA on the campus of Lander, where God is also doing incredible things! The first week of May will be our next baptism! Awesome! God is moving in peoples hearts and changing people's lives. It's unreal to think that what God is going to do is even more amazing than what He has been doing both in and through Oasis Church! Thank you so much for your prayers and support! Those of you who made a three year commitment have only 2 more months until you finish. Please, lets finish this stage of the church plant strong!
