We’d be honored for you to join us on a Sunday morning.
Oak Church strives to experience and express
hope, healing, and hospitality in and through Christ
to everyone who comes through our doors.
We hope you feel loved and welcomed.
If you are visiting, we have a special parking spot for you in the lot behind the education building off of Bivins. If you have small children, feel free to park along Bivins to ease your loading and unloading process. Come on in the front sanctuary doors and fill out a name tag, grab an order of worship and either find a seat to settle and prepare for worship or walk downstairs to the fellowship hall for some freshly brewed coffee before service starts.
Sunday attire is pretty casual at Oak Church. Most weeks the band and pastor will be wearing jeans, but it is not rare to find some coat and ties in attendance. Come as you are.
Kids are such a big part of life at Oak Church. We welcome families and have a great team of volunteers who serve our children during the worship gathering each week. We offer a nursery for the duration of our worship time and kids programs that dismiss after singing. Check out the Kids Page for more information about checking your children in and contact information.
We gather to weekly around two tables: the Communion Table and the Potluck Table. Our Sunday worship gatherings usually begin with a call to worship, an opening song of preparation and brief announcements to share the various upcoming community events, followed by a time of corporate singing, and then a sermon based on Scripture. Frequently there will be time for people from the congregation and surrounding community to give testimonies of God’s faithfulness, there is also regular time of individual and corporate conversation with God and confession, as well as a time of sharing our prayer requests and praises. On a given week, we may also hear from folks serving in mission work, share a responsive liturgical reading, spend time in reflective prayer, or receive together the grace of the Lord’s Table. Each service closes with a final song, benediction and a blessing.
We welcome worshipers to receive the elements of the Lord’s Table by His grace and invitation, and in celebration of the kingdom declared by the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ on a weekly basis. Our practice involves the breaking of a piece of bread and dipping it into a common goblet as administered by members of the Body.
We extend our time of fellowship around the Lord’s Table through our table fellowship downstairs after our worship gathering. You are invited to bring something to share with others as we strive to meet and have our physical hungers met even as the Lord meets our spiritual hunger. We eat together on a weekly basis, from homemade casseroles to a box of Bojangles chicken, in order to celebrate God’s provision through each other, to enjoy each others company, make new friends, welcome the stranger, and further old relationships. Whether or not you bring something to eat, you are always invited and there is always enough.
