CHO Furniture Program – 24 February and 28 July 2018

Meet at the furniture warehouse around 8:45 a.m. At this time, things should be wrapping up with the furniture give-away that occurs from 8:00 a.m. until 9:00 a.m. Then we jump in the CHO truck and make a loop that includes five or six houses that have been scheduled in advance. We are usually done by noon. If you want to come an hour earlier, you can help with the furniture give-away too. Although this is more than what is actually needed, I have always found it rewarding to meet the folks who are directly benefitting from our efforts.

In addition to the above, our fitness conscious senior youth will be saving money on gym memberships by participating in the Brethren Exercise Program (also known as the CHO Furniture Program) on third Sundays. Activities include organizing the furniture warehouse, unloading the CHO truck, picking up donations from donors, and delivering furniture to clients.

A map to the CHO Furniture warehouse can be found at http://cho-va.com/wordpress/services/furniture/.

Tuesdays are for Tacos!

From January 9th through February 13th Brian and Jan Fischer Bachman will be in the Fellowship Hall from 6:00 to 8:00 pm.  They’ll be offering chicken tacos – free, with any donations offered going to the youth fund. (Yay!)

People can show up any time, kids can do homework, Brian will bring some table games, people can just hang out.

It’s not a “program”, it’s just offering something people need anyhow – dinner and maybe having someone else help kids with homework

No need to RSVP-unless you’re happy to help. We’d love to know that in advance

Do feel free to invite people who might enjoy stopping by for some food!

If you know college kids or others who love a free meal, let them know!

Join Us for Sunday Services

You’ll feel comfortable here at Oakton Church of the Brethren where our congregation is happy to welcome you. We believe that when Jesus showed us another way of living, he intended it to nourish and hearten the entire human family.

Our worship service schedule follows the typical public school year. During the school year, a variety of Sunday School classes tailored to each age group is available at Oakton Church and the worship service is held at 11:00 a.m.

Missions

Oakton Church of the Brethren strives to listen to our congregation and community, identify what is important, and take action. Take a look and see where you feel called to reach out with the love that Jesus Christ taught us. Bring that passion to the next Action / Reflection Committee meeting and we’ll serve on that mission together. Or, if you don’t see the mission you already have a passion for, bring that to the next Action / Reflection Committee meeting and we’ll work with you to learn about and support your advocacy.

Children's Ministry

Oakton Church of the Brethren is blessed with an active children’s ministry. With over 50 children from nursery to senior high, we have programs for all ages ranging from nursery care for Sunday School and Worship times, to Senior High Youth fellowship and mission events.
