Outreach

Mobilization

As much as we value education and conversation we also understand that, perhaps more than ever, what our culture needs are people who are willing to get up and actually do something. Therefore we promote and facilitate opportunities for you to engage in service both locally and internationally.

Oasis communities do not exist only to satisfy the needs of their members or perpetuate the Oasis movement. Rather, Oasis communities are committed to service projects and civic engagement that improve the lives of others locally, nationally, and internationally. 

The challenges facing humanity are largely created by humans themselves. We don’t wait for divine intervention. If the world is to become a better place for all people; it is up to us to make it happen through our collective wisdom, resources, and efforts.
    

Our outreach efforts are rooted firmly in our core values:

  • People are more important than beliefs
  • Reality is known through reason
  • Meaning comes from making a difference
  • Human hands solve human problems
  • Be accepting and be accepted

Our Community Partners

USD259 McKinney-Vento Homeless Program

Wichita Oasis holds regular donation drives for the USD259 McKinney-Vento Homeless Program which serves over 2,000 Wichita area students who are homeless or in transition. We collect items for snack packs, hygiene kits or school supplies. After each donation drive, Oasis members assemble supplies into gallon zip lock bags or backpacks for distribution to students in the program. Oasis often partners with Wichita United Church of Christ for donation drives.

American Red Cross

Each quarter at one of our potlucks, Oasis hosts an American Red Cross blood drive. If interested in donating, please view our schedule of events for the next blood drive, contact us and we will add you to the list!

Wichita Women's Shelter

Along with each blood drive, Oasis members bring menstrual products to be donated to the Wichita Women's Shelter.
