September marks 20 years since a handful of Christ followers joined together to launch Oasis in 1997. Founded on the belief that church should be "a safe place to hear a dangerous message," Oasis has become known as a church where everybody’s welcome, nobody’s perfect and anything’s possible.
To acknowledge the work of God through Oasis over the past two decades, the entire month of September will be a time of celebration and commemoration. Built around the theme, THIS IS US, we will reflect on the past, rejoice in the present, and look forward to the future. Every Sunday in September will feature special moments and chapters from the story of our community culminating with our 20th Anniversary Bash on Sunday, September 24.
BE A PART OF THE CELEBRATION!

If you have photos of past Oasis events, activities or people, please email them to us ASAP at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you cannot email your photos, please bring them to the church office or drop them off at the info desk in the church lobby on Sunday mornings. Make sure to put your name on them so we can return them to you.
We want to celebrate God and one another during this milestone and the best way to do that is through the power of story. Please take a moment to share how God has been working in your life by being a part of the Oasis community. Is there a moment or event or person that has really impacted you? Maybe it was an answered prayer. Maybe you matured in your faith some way. Maybe you chose to follow Christ and were baptized. Maybe you experienced the power of community as a part of a life group. Maybe God used a service or ministry at Oasis to impact you in a profound way. Maybe you recall a time when Oasis was fulfilling our vision of Up, In, and Out. No story is insignificant or irrelevant. Everyone has a story and we want to hear yours. You can submit your story/thoughts/memories by clicking HERE. Or, you can write it out on paper and turn it in at the info desk on Sunday. Be sure to put your name on it.
We have a lot of great things planned in September, but we need all hands on deck to see them accomplished. Specifically, we are planning a 20th Anniversary Bash in our new parking lot on Sunday, September 24. To make this happen, we need committed volunteers who can help with various responsibilities on this special day, If you are willing and able to volunteer, please sign-up by clicking HERE and a member of the Anniversary Bash Planning Team will contact you in the near future.
We are asking every participant at Oasis to be present and engaged for all four Sundays in September. This is a major milestone for our community and it would not be the same without you. Maybe you have been pulled away by the busyness of life - this is a great time to come home. Maybe you have been wrestling with the problems of life - this is a great time to come home. Maybe you have been pondering the questions of life - this is a great time to come home. The Story of Oasis will not be complete without you.
