This month's newsletter includes an article about a guest speaker from Youth with a Mission who will be joining us live to share experiences in their world-wide ministry. We also have four exciting new events this month to help our community become more engaged with the Oaks Christian Online High School.
Spiritual Life Happenings
This month, November, we have two special events in Spiritual Life. On November 8, a guest speaker from YWAM (Youth with a Mission) will be joining us in a live session to share her experiences leading teams around the world as they pursue spiritual and social nourishment for the poor and the disconnected. This fits within a theme we’ve been discussing lately on “healthy communities” as the book of James challenges us to keep in mind as an ideal. (Our 2017-1018 Spiritual Life theme is Christ's Health and Healing) Students have been sharing their passions for understanding wealth, poverty, privilege, homelessness, and service all in the context of what James calls the “Royal Law of Scripture” that Jesus reveals: love your neighbor as yourself.
Mark your calendars! On Sunday, November 5th Oaks Christian School Admissions Open House will begin at 1:00pm with information sessions available at 1:30pm and 3:00pm where you will hear from our Head of School Rob Black and our Vice President of Admissions John Huffman, as well as enjoy short performances from our orchestra and guitar students.
