This is Us

We are the church, whether we are gathered or scattered--each one of us, a part of the body of Christ, wherever we go, whatever we do.

So, where can you find us, and what are we doing?


Ever wondered who takes the time to create the artwork on the chalkboards in the Commons? This team of artistic ladies take turns coming in to Five Oaks on their own time and creating the artwork and messaging we need each week! Fun fact: Because each chalkboard weighs nearly 40 pounds and is rather unwieldy, the artists create their works while standing on a ladder! They are creative and generous with their time, and the ones with young kids bring them along to “help,” too. Pictured here, from left: Bethany Nordman, Meleah Miller, and Liz Snow. Not pictured: Patty Gorter and Emily Korf.
