Ornaments for the Oakbrook Family Tree
Lots of great photos are now part of the Oakbrook family tree. Let’s add yours! Please email a picture of yourself or your family to Kathy@oakbrookchurch.org. We’ll put it in a frame and display it. We’ll also add your picture to the new church directory. If you prefer to bring in a picture, that will work, too. Just keep in mind that the frames are about 3 inches in diameter.Thank you!
 
Christmas Eve Breakfast–December 24,10am
Instead of having our normal coffee and donut hour, the hospitality team will be providing a light breakfast at 10am on December 24. Please join us for breakfast before worship on Christmas Eve morning. Worship will be at 10:45, as usual.
 
Well Classes
New Well classes will be starting Sunday, January 7. The following options will be available:
.

1. Scott Johnson will be leading a 6-part series on prayer as a way of life. It will be very practical and will aim to add new dimensions to our understanding and practice of prayer. Scott will use A Prayer Life by Paul Miller as the basis of the class while pulling in other resources that will enrich our understanding, as well. You can order the book ahead of time. We also will have some available in the lobby.

2. Dave Waldrup will be leading a study on Romans. Come join us as we read through Paul’s amazing letter to the Romans. We’ll examine the foundations of our Christian faith and gain new insights into why we believe as we do. Reading one chapter together each week we’ll extend through 16 weeks to finish the letter on April 23. You’ll be glad you joined us on the journey! For more information, please contact Dave Waldrup.

 
Acorns Preschool
We are in need of substitutes for the Preschool age children (2.5-pre-k) during the service. This is a wonderful way to help without a monthly commitment. We would like to make the list as long as possible so that we can find last minute help due to sicknesses, as well as help when volunteers are out of town. Thanks to all those who have already signed up to volunteer.  Please email acorns@oakbrookchurch.org
if you would like to help with this great program.
 
Ministry of Jesus–Togo
Oakbrook Church has been connected with and supporting the Ministry of Jesus since 1995. Many teams from Oakbrook have traveled to Togo over the years to share in their work. The Ministry of Jesus currently strengthens the indigenous Togolese church in rural villages and trains up leaders for the church. If you would like to learn more about their ministry, click here.
 
Prayer Chain Ministry
Oakbrook has an email prayer chain ministry, so we can lift each other up in prayer as brothers and sisters in Christ. Those who have a prayer request can send an email to prayer@oakbrookchurch.org.
That prayer request will then be distributed to members who have chosen to be part of Oakbrook’s prayer chain ministry. If you would like to participate in the prayer chain, please email Kathy at 
 
Youth Group Meals
Get to know the Youth better by taking a meal to Youth Group on Saturday night. You’re invited to stay and be a part of the group for the evening. Contact: John@oakbrookchurch.org.
