Dear Members and Friends of Oakwood Church,

This year we will be celebrating our Consecration Sunday service on November 20 at 10:00am. We invite you to plan now to attend, either in-person or online. This is our time to celebrate and give thanks for the work God is doing and is going to do in our lives!

Consecration Sunday is designed to be a biblical, spiritual, and inspirational experience that enriches our understanding of Christian stewardship. It is not built on the “need of the church to receive,” but on the “need of the giver to give” as a part of his or her own spiritual development and Christian commitment.

We encourage you to pray and seek God’s will concerning the resources with which He has blessed you. Then as God has led you, fill out an ‘estimate of giving card’ with the amount you are planning to give to Oakwood Church in 2023. It is this estimate that will be used by the Finance Team to determine our budget for 2023. We hope that you will be a part of this powerful, faith-strengthening worship experience.

You have three options this year for returning your estimate of giving to us:

  1. Fill out a card in-person during the service on Sunday November 20.
  2. Print and mail the card attached below to the church office (please postmark by Monday November 21).
  3. Fill out the online form below by Monday November 21.

Questions can be referred to a member of council or the finance team.

In His Service,

Mike Wittenbach, Sam Beach, Tom VandenBosch, Tammi Savage, Carrie Roer
Oakwood Finance Team

“You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don't give reluctantly or in response to pressure. For God loves a person who gives cheerfully.” -2 Corinthians 9:7
