We will be the body of Christ in our Community by Connecting with God, Growing in Discipleship, and Serving the World.

Next Sermon for December 10th

Advent 2023 at Oak Grove is off to a joyful beginning despite this year’s grinchy theme! We gathered in The Grove to celebrate the beginning of the season with tasty treats, children’s crafts, and creating over 50 Advent wreaths! Our children’s ministry extended the celebration by sending over 175 Advent activity bags into our community through our Sunday school and preschool families.

We celebrated old traditions as we gathered by the angel tree in hopes of bringing joy to a foster child and began new a traditions during 11am worship as we introduced Children’s time into worship. 

The festivities continued into the week with the Women’s group Christmas gathering on Monday evening, followed by the Golden Oaks Christmas luncheon on Tuesday. My heart was filled with gratitude as I looked across The Bridge and saw so many happy faces.

My heart is growing this Advent season, and my prayer is that your heart is growing too!

May God’s peace and grace be with you!
