May 20th OASIS Spring Celebration Recap
Celebrating 20 years of ministry!
Dear OASIS friends,
Singles from all over the tri-state area gathered together Saturday, May 20th for our OASIS Spring Celebration at Lefferts Park Church in Brooklyn. The topic was “The Overcoming Life.” The evening began with dinner and fellowship as singles connected with new friends and old. Every seat was filled in our fellowship hall! Our program included powerful worship and a *message about overcoming addiction or anything that keeps you from experiencing freedom in Christ. That included perfectionism, worry, smoking, overeating, drinking or OCD and on and on. The bottom line was that addiction is spiritual bondage and the way out is by knowing the truth. God’s word is clear that it is the truth that sets us free (John 8:32). We talked about our new identity in Christ and the freedom that is ours because of the finished work of the cross, not because of anything we can do. If you would like to view the webinar we showed visit: freenhim.org.
The Overcoming Life Action Plan that singles went home with is available at: CompleteinChrist.com. After the teaching a video that expresses how deeply God loves us was enjoyed. You can see it at Fathersloveletter.org. This special evening ended with dessert and more fellowship with games and giveaways. Did you know that we don’t have cliques at OASIS? Our greeters help to make it a very friendly place! Singles have the chance to meet every person at the event. A very special thank you to all the volunteers that did such a great job all night! What a blessing you are to all of us.
We hope you will plan now to join us for our next big event on Saturday, Oct. 21st at 6pm. Volunteers arrive at 4pm. There will be dinner, fellowship and worship. Did I mention dessert? The topic is “Called and Equipped.” There will be time for q and a. The Lefferts Park Church Dance Ministry will perform. Please help us get the word out about this event.

Did you know that we now have small fellowship groups monthly? Join us as we continue to discuss our freedom in Christ and learn how to live our new life in Him. This is a discussion group where singles have the opportunity to share what’s happening in their own lives. There is group prayer at the end. These meetings allow for a deeper level of connection with others. And they help you to learn how to apply God’s truth to your life! Come out and make some friends! These are free to attend. Saturday dates from 11am to 1pm are: Saturday June 24th, July 15th, August 12th. .Our Brunch with bagels and coffee is September 9th.
