At Oakland you will discover ministries and opportunities for all ages! This includes meaningful worship; a passion for service; and being a place where people can encounter God's healing love and care. We take seriously our mission to follow Jesus and love others through outreach projects in our local communities; and in our support of the service ministries of our denomination, the Church of the Brethren. The ways we live into this include: going as volunteers with Brethren Disaster Ministries and Children's Disaster Ministries to places that have been hit by various disasters; organizing a huge Yard Sale every summer that benefits Disaster Ministries; serving a meal at our local soup kitchen every month; giving away free clothing through the Clothing Bank in our church building; organizing a Christmas Party and gift collection for a local boy's home; and so much more! Many of the things we do are hands-on, and connect us directly to our neighbors. We also have active Sunday School classes for every age, and wonderful programming for children and youth. In addition to in-person worship at 10:30 AM, our services are available on Facebook Live every Sunday morning, and can be viewed any time.
