Oasis and Streets Girls Participate in Angel Street Choir

December 06, 2013

angel-street-choir-web100x1What a fantastic evening for the girls of Angel Street choir and the women of hope!! The opportunity to open for Sarah Simmons was a night that the girls, nor I, will ever forget. After singing their original song called the Christmas countdown, the audience gave Angel Street choir a standing ovation!!

What a wonderful way to open the Christmas program this year. I am still receiving emails texts and Facebook posts on what an impact the girls made that evening. We look forward to recording a Christmas countdown this Sunday at the Grove with Angel Street, and then another recording in January at the warrior Princess retreat!!

Ruth Abigail and I have definitely seen the girls come alive with passion and enthusiasm as they have shared their musical gifts so creatively! We look forward to continuing this
project in whatever way God will allow. Thank you so much for everything you
did to make this project possible, we could not have done it without your
support and help!!

Special thanks to Brenda for helping with rehearsals, and Terrice for transporting the girls back to North Memphis after the concert :-)).

‘Rockstars Summer Sessions’ Teach Girls Life Skills

May 30, 2013

oasis-sweetshirt-summer-sesSweet-Shirt Summer Sessions are fun events that will take place throughout the summer to provide middle school girls something safe to do. We will meet every other Saturday from June 1st until August 3rd (Upcoming Sessions: June 15, 29; July 13, 27; August 3) at 10:00am in the Sweet-Shirt Shop in the Oasis Appliance Store (directions).

We will have guest speakers talk with the girls about life skills such as: nutrition, body awareness, money management, and education.

Lunch will be provided at each event. We are hoping to have between 8-15 girls involved with the program.

June 1st was the kick-off event and Laura Johnson and volunteers from her organization April’s Action helped facilitate the initial meeting. The girls learned about individuality and creativity while painting rocks. This projected stemmed from the Bible verse “Trust in the Lord always, for the Lord God is the eternal Rock.” Isaiah 26:4.

If you are interested in volunteering with us, we’d love to have you join us! Contact Jasmine for more information. Stay up-to-date by liking us on Facebook, following us on Twitter and checking our website for pictures, videos and current information.
