Frequently Asked Questions

What time is your Sunday worship service?
Our Sunday morning worship service starts at 11 am in our sanctuary. You will find greeters at both the front and side entrances of the church to help guide you to the sanctuary.  We also have Sunday school classes that begin at 9:45 am and are available for all ages. Click here for a list of classes.
What is your worship service like?
Our worship service is a traditional service consisting of prayers and meditation, congregational singing, choral or other music, a children’s message, scripture readings, and a sermon.   Our music leader incorporates a wide range of musical styles in congregational singing, choirs, and instrumentals.  There are many ways to participate in our music: adult and youth choirs, solos, duets, instrumental solos or ensembles, and handbell choir.  All are encouraged to share their gifts in worship! 
When should I arrive?
We suggest arriving at least 15 minutes before the service begins. This will allow enough time to park, locate the appropriate nursery for your children (if needed), and find the sanctuary. Click here for driving directions.
What should I wear? You will find various clothing styles on Sunday morning. Styles range from casual to suits and dresses.   Please come in whatever you feel comfortable.
Do you have handicap parking?
Handicap parking is available and marked in the parking lot near the front and side entrances of the church. There are additional handicap parking spots in the back of the church building near the fellowship hall entrances with an automatic handicap door at the right back entrance.
Does your church have a nursery?
We have a nursery for babies and toddlers and a nursery for preschoolers.  Both nursery classrooms are located through the double doors off the sanctuary’s lobby.  Also, children in grades kindergarten through fifth grade are welcome to attend children’s church during the worship service.  Typically, this age group will sit with their parents at the start of the service.  After the children’s story, the children’s church teachers will lead them to their classroom
What programs does your church offer children?
Depending on the age of your children, there are many activities for them including Sunday school, children’s church, youth groups, youth choir, Family Ministries events, and much more. Please see a full listing of programs and activities on the Children page and the Youth page.
What is After Church Fellowship?
One of the ways our congregation stays connected is during After Church Fellowship time after the Sunday worship service.  We gather in the fellowship hall to share in food and fellowship.  This time provides an opportunity for us to greet our visitors and for our congregation to connect with one another.  Please consider joining us for a light snack and beverage.
How do I become a member?  Oak Grove offers an eight week course for persons considering joining our congregation.  Discipleship 101 covers the basics of Christian faith and life, and always consists of both new and long-time members at Oak Grove. If you are considering joining our church—by baptism or transfer of membership–or would like a refresher course in basic Christian faith and life, please contact  Pastor Tim.
