oakwood calendar & events

this week at oakwood

As we launch two Sunday morning services at Oakwood in the fall of 2017, we are also starting a new process for weekly updates. We won't be doing live announcements on Sunday mornings during the services. Instead we will be filming weekly update videos that we can send out via email, social media and our website.  We will also show them before the 9am and 11am worship services begin at the church each week.  Watch these short videos each week to keep up-to-date about what's happening in the Oakwood Community Church family.

  • Celebrate Easter at oakwood

    The "Amazing Love" Eater drama is presented through the lens of two teens, Jenna and Michael, who are visiting their grandparents over Spring Break. They ask Grandpa if he would read them the Easter Story. The story grandpa tells is simply...Jesus. He died, so we could be forgiven. He rose from the dead - conquering sin and death - so that by believing, we too can have eternal life.

    This production is being entirely produced, directed, written, staged and performed by members of our church family. We also have a wonderful crew working behind the scenes on scenery, lighting, costumes, and special effects.
