Finishing 2020 with strength in 5 areas as a community.
2020 so far has been one of the most challenging years that the modern world has seen. Some have thrived, but most find themselves at a loss of some form. But the year is not over, and we’re going to finish strong - so that we’re ready to serve our city and reach those who are in need. We believe that the heart of the church is the strength of a city. Join us for the rest of 2020 as we grow in strength. Let’s become LA Strong.
OCTOBER: MENTAL HEALTH
Are You Ok... Really?
There is a stigma in our culture surrounding Mental Health. But, it’s something that is important in ALL of our lives. We want to work as a church family to destigmatize working on our Mental Health, together! So join us as we walk through asking and answering the following questions:
Are you okay… Really?
Are you okay… Spiritually?
Are you okay… Mentally?
Are you okay.. Emotionally?
We want to come along side you as you grow in the area of Mental Health, and we know that everyone is on a different step in their journey. Maybe your next step is to have some real conversations with yourself about your Mental Health. No matter where you are in your mental health journey, we’ve put together a list of resources above, full of helpful books, podcasts and social media accounts that you may find helpful.
It’s possible that your next step is to reach out to someone for prayer about specific things you are going through in this time. If this is what you’re needing, and you don’t have someone to reach out to, we’d love to have our team pray for and believe with you.
Sometimes we might need a little more help than a friend can offer. If you are at a place where you are needing professional help, it’s so important to get that help. We encourage you to find a therapist that works for you.We know that financially, therapy is not always an option. Since this is something that we believe in so strongly, we want to come along side you in this. If you are in need of professional help, and it is not currently a financially viable option for you, please reach out to us at MentalHealth@OasisLA.org

SEPTEMBER: PHYSICAL STRENGTH
For the month of September, we challenged ourselves in the area of Physical Strength - including Nutrition & Diet. Make sure to follow @OasisLA on social media to stay up to date.
The goal of this month was for all of us to take one step towards physical strength - whatever that step may be! We want to take care of our bodies and live healthier.
Wherever you are on your journey towards physical strength, let’s continue to take the next steps together and celebrate as we grow.
- WEEK 1 | Nutrition & Diet
- WEEK 2 | Healthy Habits
- WEEK 3 | Get Moving
- WEEK 4 | Body Image
Because of your generosity, we were able to partner with A Place Called Home by donating 500 backpacks to be filled with supplies. We were also able to give 50 backpacks filled with school supplies to Oasis single moms.
We've also been working to get laptops, tablets, and wireless hotspots into the hands of students who need them to succeed as they take on the world of virtual learning.
And, thanks to your continued care for our city, all appointments for our September 4th blood drive with the Red Cross have been filled. As there is always a need in this area, we encourage you to find a different blood drive in your area!
