Happy Thanksgiving Oakhurst Church community! We have a lot to be thankful for as a brand new church and I hope that you spend some time this week considering all that God has done and is doing among us. We began worshipping together on August 7th and it has been incredible to see how God has brought such amazing servants to help make the dream of Oakhurst Church become a reality. There is certainly still a lot of work ahead, but we are filled with gratitude to see how far God has already brought us in only a few months. Please continue to pray that God would bless Oakhurst Church so that we can truly become a blessing to our neighborhood, city and our world!
