Dear Families at Oak Grove,

Join us for our egg hunt eggstravaganza on Sunday, March 24 at 9:30 AM on the playground and surrounding grassy areas. This fun-filled event will be immediately followed by the Teeny Tiny Farm, where your family can interact with an adorable petting zoo right here at OGUMC! We are currently accepting candy donations in the church office for this event. Candy must be individually wrapped and peanut and tree nut free. Thank you in advance if you are able to contribute! 

On Easter Sunday, we will be hosting an Easter Carnival during Children’s Church starting at 10:45 AM. Check-in for the children will begin at this time in the Children’s Wing. 

Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions, or if you just want to say hello and connect, at [email protected]

Hope you are having an amazing week! 

In Christ,


On Sunday mornings, we meet upstairs in the lounge at 9:45 and at 5:30pm Sunday evenings. If you are in grades 6 - 12, please stop in during those times. 

Middle School - "IGNITE" @ 9:45 am - We will continue walking through Jesus' ministry as we climb Mountains in Session 3 of The Way series. We'll discuss the Sermon on the Mount while focusing on the Beatitudes and the Lord's Prayer!

High School - "Cross Trainers" @ 9:45 am - Having studied the account of Christ's arrest, trial, and crucifixion, we will explore the Gospel of John's account of the resurrection.  

Sunday Night Small Group at 5:30 - Thank you to Alan & Pastor Amanda for providing Moe's dinner to us last week! Moe's is always a favorite! For this Sunday night, we will begin as usual at 5:30 but rather than eating first, we will invite parents of youth to join us for a question and answer session about the summer mission trip. Registration is due in March so decisions need to be made soon. Depending on time, we will also have a short discussion about homelessness in the U.S. Parents are welcome to stay for that and for dinner and even help with CAST dinner if they want to. Youth will follow up their dinner with helping the kitchen team prepare the dinner, serve the dinner, and clean up as well as chatting with our guests. We should be done around 8:30. Please let Roger know that you can participate! Youth under the age of 16 should have their parents sign a CAST permission slip unless the parents are staying to help with the dinner.  

Mission Trip - Reminder that registration forms are available for the summer mission trip to Altoona PA June 23 - June 29th! First come first served for limited spots on that trip. Registration is DUE MARCH 14TH! Brochure attached.

Volunteer to Provide Food Items for Youth - Below is a link to a Signup Genius of food items needed for Youth Small Group Dinners. If you are able to volunteer to provide any of the items, you can conveniently drop them off in the Youth Lounge on Sunday mornings during worship times. Thank you in advance for your help, support and generosity!

Join us for the next Golden Oaks Gathering. We’ll be celebrating St. Patrick’s Day on Tuesday, March 12, in The Bridge beginning at 11:30 AM. Along with fellowship, enjoy a meal of barbecue chicken, baked beans, coleslaw, roll and dessert. A $5 donation to help cover the cost of the meal is requested.


After lunch, two ladies from Senior Services of Southeastern Virginia will present an informative program about the many worthwhile services available to seniors. You’ll learn how to access these services in our community, and there will be time for questions and answers.


Please sign up to attend by March 4. Sign-up sheets will be available in Adult Sunday School Classes and the Wednesday Morning Women’s Small Group. You may also sign up by contacting Carol Avenson at [email protected] or 757-749-0574 (cell).
