  • This is a churchwide, off-campus outreach event. Canaan volunteers will assist Oasis staff in serving food, outdoor activities, AND meeting new people.
  • This event takes place right across from the Oasis building, in a grassy field at the intersection of Gravois and Morganford.
  • ALL of the materials will need to be carried across Gravois — male volunteers would be very helpful!
  • This is a great opportunity to serve together as a family — fun for the kids and ways to learn to interact with other kids and families.
  • The Bubble Bus will be at the event — if you haven't seen it check it out here.
  • Volunteer areas include: face painters, games/bounce house, cotton candy, sno cones, BBQ-ers, greeters, and more!
  • This block party/BBQ is a celebration for many refugee & Muslim families, the end of Ramadan.
  • Consider donating a baked item for the cake walk.

Questions? Please email and we will will have one of our outreach coordinators follow-up with you.

Hispanic Preschool Camp

Camp details and ways to get involved:
• June 11–July 20, @8:30am-12pm each day
• Please consider visiting this summer to interact with the children or help minister to the mothers of the students.
• Donate/drop-off supplies and volunteer for 1 day (or more).
If you are interested in being a part of this ministry in any way, please contact Rachel.
