Easter Basket Collection
March 1–March 29  |  Oakland Church

The Faithful Families small group is collecting items for Easter baskets that will be given to children in need in our congregation and our community. If you would like to donate, marked containers will be in our lobbies. Suggested items for donation include individually wrapped candy, small toys, school supplies, coloring & activity books, and baskets. No basket grass, please. You can also fill your own basket to donate. For cash donations, please get in touch with our church office.

Prayer Vigil
Friday, March 13 – Saturday, March 14  |  7am–7am  |  Oakland Church Sanctuary

Our next prayer vigil is scheduled to run from 7am Friday, March 13 to 7am Saturday, March 14, in the church sanctuary. Sign up for a slot to come and pray at the church, and more than one person can sign up for a time slot. We believe this will help prepare us for our upcoming church-wide Daniel Fast, as we empty ourselves to be filled with all that He has for us.
