As an Oakfield Youth Group leader, I invite anyone that is interested in joining us for a morning of prayer on September 24th at 7:00 am at the flagpole at OACS.  We have a time of quiet prayer for our school, our teachers, administrators and our kids in a circle around our flagpole at the high school.  You dont have to be a Oakfield person to come and encourage our kids.  It is very powerful to see teenagers in prayer together for all their friends to see.  If you can't come to OACS, I encourage you to check at your local school and see if they are participating in the morning activity. 

It is awesome to think that kids all over the nation gather at that time on that day to stand together in their faith.
