Merry Christmas Oakwood family! The holidays are full of family traditions, great songs and delicious food. And even though we know the purpose of Christmas is the birth of Jesus and not the endless gifts under the tree, every year we still find it hard to fix our family’s eyes on the manger that sits peacefully in the shadow of the cross. So, this Christmas we want to help you do just that.

Coinciding with the Advent season which we will be walking through as a church, we have a story we want to share with you. It is about a bear named Frank. Each Sunday leading up to Christmas we will release one audio story that you can listen to as you gather around as a family. Then you can use the discussion questions posted on this site to bring into focus the reason we do this thing called Christmas.

​We hope you enjoy it!​
