How We View The Process…

An indispensable element for unity in any team, family and church seeking to stay together, work together, and go forward together is to know one another’s story – to be vulnerable, transparent, and honest in revealing our journey while always working to keep the lines of communication open.  Knowing one another’s story and keeping the lines of communication open helps us to connect, trust, and understand each other.

Therefore, we are launching this weekly update to keep you appraised of building/property developments and how we are navigating through them.  Our goal is for all of us (Live Oaks Family) to move through the process together.  The process won’t always be perfect or smooth and there will be unexpected twists, turns, and even obstacles along the way.  However, we believe God has given us this opportunity to join Him in what He is doing to reach others, develop in our ability to work together, and grow as a family to His glory.

The facility/property is not the mission.  Rather, our functioning united as a body in expressing our obedient faith through loving worship and service is the mission. “Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain.” (Psalm 127:1)  The building is simply a tool in helping us accomplish our mission, and another opportunity for us to follow the Lord, grow as a family, and function as a body.  Please engage in this process through weekly prayer, “knowing the story,” and promoting unity through faith-filled participation.  Together we go…!

Current High-Level Timeline:

Check out the latest on OUR new Facility:
