1 Dec 19, 2015 Jan 8, 2016 ACORN Oakwood Community Church Casey Rd Tampa FL The mission of Oakwood is to... Transform ordinary people into fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. Oakwood is a member of the Evangelical Free Church of America. I know that I am not alone when I admit I have a self-focused wish on my mind for this Christmas. By way of dramatic contrast, at the very first Christmas, several people rose above their natural desires. Instead, they made remarkable choices of faith. Like them, this Christmas and beyond, we too can make choices that will delight God, enrich the lives of others, and profoundly alter the focus of our lives and our destiny. ~ Pastor Paul Join us for these special pre-christmas services and use the invitation cards available at the Information Center to invite someone to join you. Inside this issue: Members Vote 2 Dec 20 Dec 24 10:30 AM The Shepherds Remarkable Choice 6:00 PM The Wise Men s Remarkable Choice Christmas Eve Service & Bonfire. Our service will begin in the Worship Center*, followed outdoors by a candle lighting ceremony including singing of Christmas carols and refreshments. Bring a lawn chair if you d like to sit around the fire while visiting and enjoying refreshments. Please bring cookies to share during our refreshment time. You can drop them off in PowerHouse before the service.

Comparative Religions Leader: Arnie Mejias & David Turner This class will summarize the world religions through the lens of world views, or the perception of the nature of God. Therefore, it will be a blend of religion and philosophy. The class will begin with an evaluation of world views on the nature of God and then discuss the general beliefs of each religion under these views. Where possible we will attempt to demonstrate the ethical implications of each of these systems of belief and how they impact a society s behavior. Some of Classes will discuss: Atheism and Secular Humanism Deism It s history and connection with the Renaissance, Rationalism and some of America s Founding Fathers Theism: Distinctions and similarities between Judaism, Christianity and Islam Pantheism and the Eastern Religions: Hinduism, Buddhism, New Age Religions Process Theology (Panentheism) and Finite Godism Polytheism Cults The study of Daniel and the Connection Class will continue during the Winter/Spring session. The present topic for the Connection Class is How In the World Can I Live the Christian Life? They are now looking at "12 Myths About the Christian Life." Middle School and High School classes will continue to meet at 9:15 AM each Sunday. In consideration of our volunteer staff, we will be happy to provide childcare for nursery age and a class for the 2 Year Olds-4 Year Olds and a class for Kindergarten-5 th Grade if we have three or more committed weekly for each age group during the 9:15 AM hour.
