Sunday School will be provided by Oasis United Church volunteers.  Coffee time will follow the service.  These two churches are currently searching for a new minister to serve both congregations.  This is a very exciting time in the life of a congregation.  The search is going well and we are hopeful that we will soon have an announcement regarding the search.
