“S.O.S.” stands for “Southern Oaks Samaritans.” Inspired by the lessons Jesus taught in the Parable of the Good Samaritan (see the “S.O.S.” sermon series), these are initiatives that we pursue in the community to demonstrate love for our neighbors.
Starting in 2019, we section off the year around certain themes and during that timeframe we seek to pursue service initiatives in our community related to that theme (e.g., homelessness). Our church announces the upcoming theme, recruits a team to lead in planning out initiatives for the church at large (e.g., putting together and distributing care packages to the homeless), and then the whole church participates in those efforts when the time comes.
