Next Sermon for November 12th

Dear Oak Grove Family,

We are over halfway through our current sermon series Seven Things for Kids. This series is giving us an opportunity to reflect on how each of us can influence the future by investing in the next generation. This past Sunday we celebrated All Saints Sunday as we took time to celebrate the lives of Oak Grove’s saints and the way that they were influencers in our community and beyond.


I look forward to worshiping with you this Sunday when we will be moving our prayer rocks into the Freedom Rocks! gathering space. We will wrap up 11am worship with dedicating this new, outdoor gathering space.


In the meantime, I hope your week is filled with Grace upon Grace.

Peace & Blessings,

Pastor Amanda

Hello, dear church -

This past week we celebrated All Saints' Day throughout the church, remembering those who have died that influenced our life of faith. A joy of my job here at Oak Grove is to lead preschool chapel. I love that Oak Grove is passionate about teaching our children the stories and traditions of our Christian faith. Now, a key instruction I have been given is to not talk in chapel about anything violent or about death. (I don't know if you have read the Bible recently, but there is a lot of it that does not fit within those parameters!) So, for All Saints' Day, I struggled with how to talk about the day without mentioning death. Because while death is a key part of our lives, especially our eternal lives, I can also agree that it might not be best to teach to a group rambunctious 2 through 6-year-olds at 9am on a school day. So how do we teach this day to our kids? The answer: pipe cleaners and song.


God bless Miss Mandy and the organized children's ministry closet of wonders! With her and Miss Nancy's help, we created some quick halos out of gold pipe cleaners. In chapel, I had some brave volunteers come up to put halos on their heads and share who wears halos. "Angels!" was the resounding answer. I shared that in art, the saints always have halos around their heads, too, and saints are people who share God's love with others. I then had the kids turn to each other and say, "God loves you!" Ta-da! This makes them all saints, too! And what song do saints sing? That's right - "When the Saints Go Marching In." It brought such joy to my heart to see that a holy day that is often only somber (which is okay, too!), can also be celebrated with jubilation and song.


So, my friends, I offer to you this: have you shared God's love with someone? Then you, too, are a saint! And while I might not have enough gold pipe cleaner halos to go around, I can assure that I want to be in that number with you and these preschoolers when all us saints go marching in.


Thanks be to God,

Pastor Britney

We have some exciting news to share! Starting on December 3, 2023, we will be introducing a special time dedicated to our little ones during the 11 o'clock service. Introducing... Children's Time!

During Children's Time, kids will have the opportunity to check into the classroom before the service begins. After the second worship song, they join their fellow classmates as a class in Whitehurst Hall for an engaging and fun lesson. It's a chance for them to explore the teachings of our faith in a way that truly resonates with their young hearts.

But that's not all! After the captivating lesson, our wonderful children will return to the classroom for Children's Church, where they can dive deeper into their spiritual journey through interactive activities and discussions tailored just for them.

So mark your calendars and spread the word to all the families you know! Starting from December 3, let's come together as a church community and celebrate the joy and curiosity of our children. After the service concludes, authorized check out will take place from their classrooms.

We can't wait to see our little ones shine bright in during Children's Time. Join us in making this journey of faith a memorable one for our children!
