A sharing table is available in the fellowship hall. This is a place to bring your surplus fruits and vegetables to share with the congregation. If there is something on the table you can use, please feel free to take it! This is just another way we can work together for the good of all.
Quote of the Week
We would like to remind you about how important it is to keep up with your tithes and offerings. The past year has taught us a lot about preparing for the unexpected. There may be needs that arise in the next few months that will lead us to unique ministry opportunities’ and our giving helps fulfil that mission and meet the needs of both those within and outside the congregation. There are 3 ways you can help with this:
- thru a web browser, Go to www.oaklandchurch.org
- : Mike Hogg
Oakland Church of the Brethren
P. O. Box 198
Gettysburg, OH 45328

Volunteers Needed at Dayton BDM Site
Over the past months our Southern Ohio BDM volunteers have done a great job supporting the work of the national BDM effort to rebuild in the Dayton area. The national site ends Oct. 2, but there is still work to finish. Using local volunteers, there will be a last push to finish up through October. Our leadership, Rex Miller and Sammy & Phil Deacon, need our support as much as ever. Please either let Sammy know of your availability at 937-533-1989 or Burt by phone/text at 937-287-5902, SouthernOhioBDM@gmail.com.
