On May 26 the SEMC hosted OASIS – a ministry of the Evangelical Missionary Church of Canada. OASIS stands for Older Adults Still in Service. Ivan and Donna Preston currently lead the ministry with a great enthusiasm for furthering the Kingdom work of God in the areas they visit. To that end, through their encouragement, this event was attended by sister churches from Sombre and St. Thomas as well as a couple other local churches in Sarnia, about 70 people in all enjoyed a wonderful concert, ministry updates and a delicious lunch. Above all those excellent events, what needs to be remembered are Ivan’s words as he introduced the ministry of OASIS – “we don’t want to be considered ‘seniors’ or “retired”; it is important that as we get older that we remain in service for the Lord, through our local church and through volunteering with community organizations.” That’s a challenge that could cut across many generations!
