UPDATE!! The school district has approved the Yard Give to be held on the grounds of the school instead of as a “drive-thru”. This is GREAT news; we will now have many more opportunities for personal conversation and ministry during the shopping process. Yay God!
WHAT: GREAT opportunity to serve Oakbrook Elementary School and the surrounding community by hosting a “Yard-Give” (reverse yard sale) to help those in need just before Christmas

You are invited to Join the LoveGave Team as we partner with our OES friends to serve the community with this drive-thru yard “give”.

Families welcome! Small groups welcome! ALL are welcome!
GOD gives us multiple opportunities to share about the love of JESUS during and through this event. Many of those who shop at the yard-give come every year and we have gotten a chance to get to know them. Please pray for Love Gave as we seek to share the love of JESUS and shine HIS light on ALL who would come.
We give love because Love gave.
