Ministry Opportunity of the Week: Wildwood Elementary School
Group: Adult and Teen Volunteers
OAG has partnered with Wildwood Elementary School to help them with their Positive Behavior incentive program which includes quarterly carnivals for the students as well as running and main-taining their in-house “store” every other week. The PBS Store is open during the lunch hours and it’s an opportunity for the students to “buy” fun school supplies which we supply. If you’d like to volunteer for any of these events, please fill out the form below. If you’d like to make a donation to go towards purchasing supplies, designate it WWES PBS Store.
Pastor Appreciation Month

October is Pastor Appreciation Month. We will take time to honor our pastors on Sunday, October 28th but if you’d like to show your appreciation personally please feel free to do so.
Upcoming Events at OAG
Fall Revival with Allen Griffin

Our Fall Revival is here, and once again we have Evangelist Allen Griffin coming to bring us the Word.

Be praying now about someone you can invite to services with us that week. See you there!

Project Block Party
Tuesday, October 23, 5-7pm
Project Block Party is a simple outreach that our church does bi-weekly. We show up to a (pre-approved) home in the middle of a local neighborhood, bring a grill, yard games, giveaways, and a craft, and offer a free dinner and a friendly smile! Our volunteers have had a great time meeting the community, sharing a hot dog, and showing the love of Jesus. Our next Block Party will be Tuesday, October 23, from 5-7pm (setup is at 4:30) at Pastor Daniel and Amanda’s home at 1107 Huey St. in Wildwood.
Wednesday, October 24, 3pm
Group: Adult and Teen Volunteers
This Wednesday is an early release day for Sumter County Schools. Therefore, there will be NO W.O.C. on Wednesday, October 17th.
W.O.C. (Winning Our Community) picks back up on Wednesday, October 24. If you are registered as one of our volunteers, please be at the church by 2:30 PM. Please pray as we are busing in nearly 70 students from Wildwood Elementary and an additional 25+ teenagers from Wildwood Middle High School.
Our October J.O.Y. Luncheons will be on Thursday, October 25th at 12:00 noon. Please bring a covered dish to share and invite someone new this month!

We need volunteers and candy (lots of candy!)
We have 2 Fall Festivals on our calendar this year.
First, OAG will be partnering with the Oxford Community Fall Festival on Saturday, Oct 27th, serving popcorn & snow cones and grilling hot dogs. This is a fundraiser for the Oxford Cemetery behind the church. Come out and support the community of Oxford.
Second, because Halloween falls on a Wednesday this year, the OAG Fall Family Fest will be held that Wednesday, October 31st in the gym. There will be a whole lot of games and candy for the kids, a cake walk, grilled hot dogs, and a safe place for the whole family to have a great time. We have started collecting candy for the festival. If you would like to make a candy donation, we have a tub near the nursery. And volunteers are needed to help us run the games and to show the love of Jesus to the community. For more information or to volunteer, use the form below.
There will be Baby Shower for Zach & Jessica Morrot on Sunday, October 28th at 2:00 PM in the Fellowship Hall. They are expecting a baby boy and are registered at babylist.com. Please plan to be there and love on this young family.
