Oasis is an outreach program that began at St. John/St. Paul Lutheran Church in August 2006. Oasis stands for:

Open to all
Accepting of all
Safe Haven and shelter
Instruction in the word and grace of Jesus Christ
Surrender to Christ

Oasis mission is to create an incubating space for at-risk youth and others to gain strength and take steps in their lives. Oasis fosters acceptable social behaviors and increased success in formal and personal learning through educational tutoring, spiritual mentoring, the arts, emotional and mental health support.
