Learning and growing are very important goals of membership at Oakland.  One of the opportunities we provide to help our members grow spiritually is through live simulcast and other seminars on a variety of topics from marriage enrichment to Christian apologetics to the daily practice of our faith. Colossians 2:8; 2 Timothy 2:15

Upcoming Seminars

Wesleyan Covenant Association Simulcast - On Saturday, October 14, 2017, Oakland Church will host a live simulcast of the next meeting of the Wesleyan Covenant Association (WCA) being held in Houston, TX. Oakland is a member of the WCA, which is an association of congregations, clergy persons, and laity who desire to cooperate in the mission of promoting the ministry of the gospel from a Wesleyan theological perspective within The United Methodist Church and kindred bodies, to the end that the Church might be renewed and re-invigorated. Excellent speakers and presenters will challenge and encourage faithful orthodox Christians to engage in that endeavor. To register, call the church office, 304-725-3737.

Art Of Marriage - We are hoping to offer the Art of Marriage video seminar this year, as well as other live simulcasts as they become available. Future events will be posted here as soon as they are scheduled.
