Adult Classes - We host two adult classes during sunday school from 10:00am - 11:00am.
- Church Sanctuary - Pastor JoAnne will be teaching Sunday School in the sanctuary next week, 8/27/2017, and the topic will be "The Earth." This will be a relevant and very interesting class so please join us next weekend. In September we will begin "Patterns of Evidence for the Exodus", by Pastor Kent and Josh Alexander.
- Kinkade Room - During September through November, the JOY group (Just Older Youth) group, formerly the Senior Adult Sunday School, will be studying the "Covenants with God." It is wonderful to learn about God's promises and what they mean to us. We are beginning with the origin and meaning of the rainbow; next, discovering that even Abraham and Sarah are adopted children of God (that wasn't a new idea in the New Testament); and then, looking at several other divine promises. I don't know about you, but it is important for us to know what God says he will do for us. Then we can sing with the song writer Russell Carter about "Standing on the promises of God our King!"
The men of Oakland meet the second Saturday of the month, 8:00am-9:30am, for a full breakfast, a devotional time for applying scripture to our daily lives, and laughter-filled interaction with other men from the church.
Several times throughout the year men meet in small groups for short-term study; sometimes just men and sometimes mixed. The recent study by sports legend, Joe Gibbs, was so well received that a sequel is planned for this fall. Watch for dates and details.
There are many opportunities for service for men at Oakland, including the Friday Community Buffet, maintenance and upkeep chores, and service projects for members of the church and community (as announced).
Men renew and refresh their relationship with God by attending Oakland Men's Advance. A weekend of accelerated spiritual growth, filled with laughter, good food and meaningful discussion and games has helped to build a continually expanding brotherhood of the men of Oakland Church. The most recent Advance was in February 2017. Watch for dates for the next Advance. Cost is generally @ $200 per participant.
