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.
We warmly welcome you to worship with us on Sundays at 10:30 am
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 on Sunday October 26th.
Everyone is 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.
First Time Visitors - To learn more about our worship services, or on the Worship button at the top of this page.
