What to Expect at Oakland

We’re excited you are thinking about visiting our church! We offer a welcoming and friendly environment for worship. Greeters will assist you in finding all that you need to enjoy and be at home in your visit with us. Here is what you can expect on your visit with us.

Worship

Sunday School begins at 9:00 AM and is available for all children in our classrooms. Childcare for young children is provided in the nursery.

Worship Service at 10:00 AM
The morning worship service has been our traditional service since 1872. Each service is focused around a sermon prepared by our minister and supplemented by God’s gift of music. This service includes the Chancel Choir who lead all the hymns and sing an anthem selected by the music director. Expect awesome music and an inspirational message with a family atmosphere.

NEW Sunday School class at 11:00 AM This is an intergenerational class made up of all ages.  Modeled after the early New Testament Church and based in Acts 2 we have college aged, young couples, families, and retired as participants of this class.  Your kids are welcome to join as we come together and resemble something that looks like family. 

Attire

In worshipping with us you are likely to find dresses, suits and ties as well as jeans, t-shirts and shorts. You will see people walking around in boots, sandals, and dress shoes. What you can be certain of is that you are welcome to join us in the attire which feels comfortable for you.

Parking

We have ample parking available surrounding our church. You won't have any problem finding a spot on Sundays. You will be able to easily find our front entrance.

Timing

Our Worship Services typically last about an hour, but can run a little longer on special celebration Sundays. We recommend arriving early to find a seat you're comfortable in and meet a few folks before service begins.

Our Sermons

At Oakland, we believe that you can take the Bible seriously without taking it literally. Through our sermons, learn more about how and why we believe that “we can change the world” and that “love will prevail.” Check out an audio clip from one of our Sunday Sermons below.
