The annual Oasis Singles Valentine’s Celebration, held at Lefferts Park Church in Brooklyn on Saturday, February 17 (6 p.m.), will draw hundreds of singles of all ages, denominations, and walks of life.
Our Valentine’s events never focus on the worldly view of love, but on the One who is the author of love. We will begin the celebration at 6 p.m. with a catered meal and fellowship. We have designed our seating arrangement in our fellowship hall so that singles can easily talk to one another. A cozy café atmosphere with low lighting makes it the perfect place for making new friends.
Come by yourself or with others. Many singles come alone and travel a long distance to do so. Friendly greeters will make you feel right at home from the moment you arrive until the moment you leave! Church singles groups are also welcome. Dinner ends at 6:50 pm.
Dinner will be followed by upbeat, contemporary praise and worship. I will share a message entitled “Liberated by Love.” God has called us to be rooted and established in His love. First, we may have to be healed by it! This message will focus on helping believers be free of obstacles that prevent true intimacy with our Father God. We have a very special program planned. An interactive Q and A will follow.
Fellowship and dessert will complete this uplifting evening. There will be plenty of time to meet everyone. Attire is casual, but neat. If you would like to volunteer to help out at the event as a greeter, food server, or as part of the clean-up crew, please arrive at 4 p.m., or call me at (718) 836-0029; Email: Cindy@CompleteinChrist.com.
