Who We Are >

What to Expect

Oakwoods is a multi-generational church that worships and serves together.  Regardless of your age or place in life, it should not be difficult to find others much like yourself. However, we desire our church to be united by something far greater than outward similarities. We believe the greatest unifier is not age, socio-economic status, ethnicity or politics. It is the gospel of Jesus Christ. The reconciliation provided by Jesus overcomes any superficial barrier and we try to display that in every way that we can.

We invite you to join us at Oakwoods any Lord’s Day for Sunday School classes at 9:45 AM, Morning Worship at 11AM, and Evening Worship at 6 PM.

When you visit, you will find Oakwoods to be a warm, friendly environment of men and women who love the Lord and love people. We love and welcome visitors and will encourage you in your discovery and walk with God. Please feel free to introduce yourself to others, ask questions and let us know if you need more information about our church! We’d be happy to share with you.

Our Sunday Morning Worship Service begins promptly at 11:00 AM and is led by our staff, deacons, musicians and choir. We offer a blended worship service of hymns, gospel songs and contemporary worship songs. Our Pastor preaches using the verse-by-verse expository method to let the Word of God be the theme of the message. The service generally is 60 to 75 minutes and includes praying, singing, listening to and reading God’s Word, giving, hearing the preached Word, and responding to the preached Word.

Our Sunday Evening Worship Service begins at 6 PM and has a more casual structure. This service generally is 45 to 60 minutes and includes praying, singing, and hearing the preached Word. Oftentimes, this service is followed by folks just sticking around and visiting with and catching up with one another. We invite you to do the same; get to know us and let us get to know you!

We also celebrate the ordinances of baptism (as often as the Lord brings new believers to us) and the Lord’s Supper (once a month alternating between our morning and evening services).

All in all, we want all things to be done for the glory of God. We strive for our services to be founded on Scripture alone, Christ-centered, and formed by the Gospel. As we understand worship, it is not a performance to be done by professionals and observed by an audience. Rather, we are called to engage all of ourselves—heart, mind and body in every component of the service from the opening welcome to the closing prayer.
