“When you’re here, you’re family!”

The Olive Garden restaurant chain (my wife’s favorite) is currently running a series of commercials that advertise more than just their great Italian food.  The commercial’s show friends and family gathered around a table at Olive Garden enjoying great food and fellowship.  The commercials end with the line: “When you’re here, you’re family!”

Please allow me to share with you some of the great things we have to offer you from the Lone Oak Church of Christ menu:

*Bible classes for all ages every Sunday morning and Wednesday evening

*Worship times to encourage, inspire and motivate us as we praise our God and study His Word

*Great times of fellowship

*A great teen ministry led by our youth minister, Jamey Boone

*An active seniors ministry (6o years young and above) led by our seniors minister, Larry Harris

*An active children’s ministry for our pre-teens led by our family minister, Marcus Thomas

Much like Olive Garden, we here at the Lone Oak Church of Christ have a lot of great things on the menu.  But also like Olive Garden, we want you to know that we are offering you something much greater than just what can be found on the menu.  We are offering you a family.  God’s family that meets here at Lone Oak is made up of wonderful people who love God and one another.  It’s a loving family atmosphere that you will find here, and that we invite you to be a part of.  Our prayer is that after having worshipped with us you will say, “when we were there, we felt like family.”
