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!



Nov. 24th is the day we set up for the anual vender fair!

Nov. 25th is the actual vender fair! We need you to come to both events to come set up and take down and serve during the event. This is a fundraiser for YOU!

There is no youth group this week on Wednesday because of Thanksgiving.

Jr High Youth Group

Changes have been made to the youth group. We are meeting Sunday Nights 4pm-6pm. This is for 6th-12th grade students! These changes start December 10th. We will meet the 10th and the 17th and then have a two week break for the Holiday season.

January 3rd we are going to meet for the first time of 2018 and will be having a new years youth group party!

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.
