Find where you can connect with other believers and grow as a disciple of Jesus Christ.
At Oakwood Student Ministry, we believe that God has called us before the foundations of the world to be his sons and daughters to glorify and praise his holy name (Eph 1.3-6). All 6-12 grade students are welcome to join us as we strive to help people take their next step toward Christ, together.
As a church we want to educate and partner with parents in helping them be the primary spiritual leaders for their kids. As a church, we want to be a positive impact that encourages children to enjoy learning about Jesus and helping them take that next step to become more like Jesus. Our children’s ministry staff believes that the children’s ministry is one of the most important ministries of the church! Our impact on a child’s life can make an eternal difference.
Family Life Center
As a ministry of Oakwood Christian Church, the FLC operates on the premise of 1 Timothy 1:9 which says, "Physical training is good, but training for godliness is much better, promising benefits in this life and in the life to come."
If we are not our own, and truly temples of the Holy Spirit, then it is imperative to take care of our spiritual life first, and then also take care of our physical health. The two can work hand-in-hand to strengthen us to be the people God wants us to be as well as the people that he uses to further His kingdom.
Provide a relaxed, Christian atmosphere where children of all ages can satisfy the strong urge and great need to be with children of the same age. Develop Christian attitudes by providing the opportunity to learn acceptable ways of self-expression, stretch their imaginations, and discover acceptable means of dealing with the frustrations of discovering individuality. Impart the benefits of Christian based curriculum. (Feel free to ask us for details about this!) Provide age-appropriate activities, nutritious snacks, indoor and outdoor play, all while learning about God.
Oakwood Christian Church believes that we should follow "The Great Commission" given by Jesus to his disciples in Matthew 28:16-20.
"Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. When they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some doubted. Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them inthe name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
