Why Oasis?

Welcome to Oasis!

An oasis is a fertile spot in the desert where water can be found. Jesus is that oasis and this world is a desert. We struggle and thirst and only Jesus can satisfy us. (John 4:14).

We are a place for beginning, becoming, and belonging! We are here to build a Christ centered youth community by equipping our parents, adults and staff by offering contemporary programs that will lead students in to a deep committed relationship with Jesus Christ Mathew 11:28 says "come to me all who are weary and carrying heavy burdens, and I will give your rest." Our students will learn what this means, and more!

Harvest Fest

October 1st

This is open to students and parents 6th-12th grade.

2pm-4pm we are having a Youth Harvest Fest, this event will be a chance for all our students to come and hang out, but it's also for me to get a chance to meet with parents. I want all of our parents to know who I am and important dates that are coming up for the youth group including youth group nights and confirmation information. I am looking forward to seeing you all!

We are on Facebook:




We are everywhere!

There are two reasons for social media and our youth group. The first is for parents to see what their students are doing. The second is to build a community for our students to interact with each other and myself when they are not here at the church.
