From the Pastor

How well we relate to and serve God and each other determines the quality of our life and the sense of peace and happiness we feel. That's why, at Oak Arbor, our ministry is to help build healthy relationships with God, His Word and each other.

I invite you to visit us and experience our welcoming, positive and supportive environment. We are blessed with some unique tools and resources that can help you and your family along your path. Our doors are open to you.

Please don't hesitate to contact me by phone or e-mail. You are welcome here, and I hope to see you soon.

Special Christmas Family Services

Nativity Enactment (Tableaux), Sunday Dec. 21st at 6 PM

This year’s Nativity Enactment will focus on the different journeys of the participants in the Christmas story. The warm, inviting scenes with costumed actors and the singing of the traditional favorite hymns will undoubtedly put you and your family in the Christmas spirit, if you aren’t already!  Refreshments served afterwards. All are welcome!

Because of the enactment, we will not have a morning church service on Sunday Dec. 21st

Christmas Eve Candlelight Service, Wednesday, Dec. 24th at 5 PM.  

Special music, hymns, and an inspirational Christmas message for everyone.  Children in attendance will receive an ornament from the church.

All are welcome to our services

Come as you are. Sunday School is provided for children through up through 10th grade (September - June).

A prayer group gathers after every service, and welcomes anyone to fill out a prayer request card and/or join them in prayer.

Sermon Series:

The Bible that was Lost and Found - Our pastor has started a new sermon series that showcases one of the most exciting aspects of New Church doctrine, namely the spiritual meaning of stories from the Word which is made possible by the study of “correspondences,” a technique that was lost but is found (revealed) again. Our voyage of discovery begins with the rise to power of the first King of Israel, Saul, which, as we will see, is a story full of intrigue, suspense and drama and is, perhaps not surprisingly, a story about us.

This series will continue in the New Year.

Coming Up this Winter:                    

“What Would Love Do?”

a New Church Journey program.

This seven-week series is designed to help individuals and groups explore the call to serve. The program offers an in-depth study of the parable in Matthew 25, wherein Jesus describes the different classes of the neighbor and how we are invited to serve. The result is inspiring, practical, and motivating.                 All are welcome to participate. Call us for more information (248-652-3420), or click here to send an email.
