“If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any fellowship with the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, 2 then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose. 3 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. 4 Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.”
Dear Family and Friends of Southern Oaks Church:
"Masks or no masks?” is a relevant
question. We highly recommend wearing a mask if you are not vaccinated or are vulnerable due to existing health conditions.
Some of our church families are currently dealing with the virus and so we must remember that it is still highly contagious and please, respect the health and safety of others. If you feel "off" and think it could be allergies, we suggest you watch online on our Facebook page "Southern Oaks Church" on Sunday Morning @ 10:45 AM or its posted on Southern Oaks Church - YouTube on Monday.
So, please be respectful and maintain a safe distance between you and others.
We will continue not passing the offering plates, while encouraging people to give either digitally or by placing your worship offerings in the boxes located at each exit.
COVID set a lot of businesses and churches back in attendance and momentum across our nation, and it is time for the Church to rise up and get back to the purpose for which God chose us!
I am so thankful for the live streaming that has been made available to everyone during this last year, but unless you are vulnerable health wise, I want to encourage you to come back to church. If you are a member of another church family, but have been watching us online, we hope you will continue to watch us online during the week, but your church family needs you… both in attendance and financial support. A church is a family, and we are called to praise his name together.
