In response to the recent Charleston, SC shootings and the climate of our country regarding racial division, Oasis-Church-NJ.com , a central NJ non-denominational church in 2 locations, warmly invites the community to its “Takin’ IT to the PARK” Big Top Tent Church Service and Picnic Party at Cedar Brook Park in Plainfield on Sunday, July 12th, at 11 a.m. Enter the park from Park Avenue >Park Dr. For more information call 732-406-7821.
According to David Butler, lead pastor, “Oasis, a multi-cultural church, is partnering with several churches in Central NJ to bring together all people from all backgrounds for services to proclaim the love and forgiveness that is offered in Jesus Christ. At the service and picnic, pastors from different churches and backgrounds will be on hand in a show of solidarity and unity. The is our second annual service in this park, but with the racial divide of the last year,, this service takes on special meaning.
Butler stated “The love and forgiveness Americans saw from the families of the victims in Charleston was only possible because of the Gospel. The healing of our society from racism and division begins with diverse churches like ours standing up as a human family in ways that celebrate and respect differences between ethnic communities for the common good. Taking our church to Plainfield and inviting all people e to our party is one small, practical way to show love.”
“This is a free and open event with the intent of blessing all the people in Plainfield and the surrounding areas. Everyone from every religious or ethnic background is welcome, whether you attend Oasis-Church-NJ.com or not. Come with family and friends and enjoy our outdoor church service and picnic. There will be a big top tent for shade and weather concerns. There’s also a great huge playground area for the kids, with a bouncy bounce.
Oasis-Church-NJ.com is a four year-old, nondenominational, casual New Jersey church, with a vision toward compassionately reaching hurting and hungry people for Jesus.
On this one day the church will not be having its regular services at either of its two locations.
Oasis normally meets Sundays 11 a.m. at The Gran Centurions, 440 Madison Hill Road in Clark. The church utilizes the ballrooms for its service. Oasis equals great kids programs, a worshipful but Rockin’ band, relevant messages for everyday life and a chance to meet new friends.
