FAITH PROMISE 2014 TOTAL! This year’s Faith Promise total is $24,900 – $10,000 toward missions and $14,900 toward LOC’s future ministry facility! YOU CAN STILL PARTNER IN FAITH with your fellow brothers/sisters at Live Oaks. Some have needed more time to discern God’s leading for them in FP 2014 – that is perfectly fine! You are welcome to sign up as the Holy Spirit gives you confirmation of what He wants to give through you this year… If you haven’t already – PICK UP your FP card on the back table, familiarize yourself with it, ask the Holy Spirit to give you a dollar amount, declare your Faith Promise on a card and place in our offering box, then TRUST God (and keep trusting…) in faith and partner with Him to provide what He promised!

A DIFFERENT WAY TO CELEBRATE LENT. Lent is traditionally a period of preparation for Easter. This traditional event is the 40 non-Sabbath days before Easter and involves fasting, confession, repentance and prayer. Lent is a great window of opportunity for a 40-day adventure in spiritual growth, renewal, and outreach. Everyone at Live Oaks is encouraged to ask the Lord where He is leading you to trust Him and respond to Him in obedience that will result in growth, blessing and acts of service…? Enjoy the Lent-faith-adventure!
