Our Compassion Ministry aims to Be the Light in our community by loving and serving those outside the church.
Being the Light
Blue Oaks has invested in our local community since our inception. In the current fiscal year, we’re investing 18% of our operating budget through our Compassion ministry. We’ve identified projects that we will fund as a part of this campaign and those projects will be invested in as pledges are fulfilled.
At CityTeam Oakland and Goodness Village in Livermore, Blue Oaks will fund the interiors of 25 bedrooms or homes and seek to create opportunities to serve the residents of these important communities.
Supporting those who foster kids
Blue Oaks will partner with Foster the City and the Pleasanton Unified School District Foster and Kinship Programs to encourage the fostering of children and supporting those families who do.
Senior living chapel services
We will expand our current senior center chapel services to serve those who live independently but may have limited family or community connections in the Tri-Valley.
People with special needs
Blue Oaks will continue as the host church for the Tim Tebow Foundation Night to Shine prom night for people with special needs.
Life is better when you join with others to make life better for someone else. Check out some of our current opportunities for getting involved in serving others with Compassion.
Men’s City Team & Goodness Village
Each month we gather to prepare means for the residents of Goodness Village in Livermore and City Team in Oakland. Experience fellowship while you serve others. Families are encouraged to serve together. There are new opportunities to serve posted regularly. Use the 'Sign Up' button below to learn more.
Working with Seniors
Night to Shine
Blue Oaks Church is the host church for the Tri-Valley "Night to Shine", a prom night for people with special needs, held each year in February. Volunteer sign ups typically open in the Winter at NTSTriValley.org. Make sure to subscribe to our newsletter below to stay in the loop about this fantastic event.
Senior Center Christmas Caroling
This Christmas season we have several opportunities to do Christmas Caroling in our senior communities. It is low-key, with no pressure. You don’t even need to have an excellent voice. The only requirement is that you like Christmas Carols and want to bless others with the Christmas Spirit. We will have songbooks for everyone so you can easily follow along. Sign Up Here.
