Elizabeth cried out with a loud voice and said, “Blessed is the fruit of your womb! (Luke 1:42)
Many of us are aware of the great services provided by First Care Pregnancy Center, providing free: pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, parent and pregnancy education, social services, and baby supplies.
One item that is always in short supply is baby wipes. As the biblical story of Elizabeth tells us, children are a precious gift, so we are having our second annual Baby Wipe Drive. Last year, from Mother’s Day through Father’s Day, we collected over 5,000 wipes, plus some infant formula. We’d like to break that record with your help!
During the month of June 2017 drop off your donations of baby wipes at Oakdale Wesleyan Church. Every package helps a family, every case a lot of families.

In the Spring of 2017 we will study what could be call the most scandalous book in the Bible, the book of Jonah. This story explains why the call of The Great Commission is so important and so challenging. I Am Jonah begins April 30, 2017.
During the I Am Jonah series our spiritual formation emphasis is the Evangelism Living Stone.
To work towards obtaining the Evangelism Stone:
- Know a method for sharing the Good News of Salvation in Jesus
- Share your testimony and/or the Good News of salvation in Jesus to a non-Christian
- Give toward Faith Promise for Missions or support a missionary
- Make plans to go on or support a short-term mission project
If you BELIEVE in Jesus as your Savior and Lord, affirm your commitment to BELONG to the local congregation of Christians at Oakdale Wesleyan Church, and commit to BECOME like Christ through discipleship.
