Summer Oaks Presbyterian Church
Last Sunday, we had the pleasure of worshiping with our friends at Summer Oaks Presbyterian Church in Oak Ridge, NC. Summer Oaks is a relatively new congregation that meets on the campus of Oak Ridge Military Academy. The worship service was simple, honest, and Christ-exalting. Our dear friend, Caleb Cross led worship, so that made things feel like home to us (Caleb has led worship at Grace Fellowship on many occasions). After preaching the morning sermon, the adult Sunday school class invited Gina and me to share a bit more about the details of our calling to Japan. Their questions showed a sincere interest in what God has called us to do, and that was deeply encouraging to us all. After the service, a couple in the congregation was gracious enough to invite us into their home for lunch (it was quite a feast). Thank you, Summer Oaks, for your warm hospitality last week!
