Ministries @ The Oaks

Empowered Student Ministry

Empowered Student Ministry is here to build up students to be faithful disciples of Jesus Christ. We strive on building a fun and safe environment where the students can come learn more about God, the relationship he wants with us and learn on becoming spirit filled disciples.. We cover multiple topics that the average teenager comes face to face with and we see how God wants us to respond.

Empowered Student Ministry meets Wednesday from 6:30-8:00 PM in “The Corner” and Sunday mornings @ The Oaks Community Church during our 10:45 service.

Missions @ The Oaks

We emphasize sharing the love and gospel of Jesus Christ with those who have never heard it, especially unreached people groups in places where there is no access to the gospel. We do this primarily in partnership with Christian & Missionary Alliance workers.  We seek to help everyone find their place in God’s global mission – praying, giving, sending, and going.”

Our Mission’s Team meets once per month on the second Thursday of the month.  We are currently meeting via Zoom but will resume meeting in person at TOCC later this year.

Saturate USA

Our goal for Saturate USA is to provide the Jesus Film DVD to every home within the 93311 area. Along with the film we also provide information about The Oaks and encourage them to visit us. We want to welcome our community to be a part of our church body!

There are 2 ways to be a part of Saturate USA:

1.  Meet after church on Sunday afternoon for lunch and then team up to hand out materials door to door.
2.  Take a bag of Saturate Materials home with you to distribute during the week in the mapped out areas.

Worship

The Oaks Community Church Worship Team exists to create an atmosphere for the congregation to worship God through music. We desire to lead the congregation into a deeper worship experience as we prepare the way for God’s people to be ushered into His presence.  We also share in a desire to grow and equip the next generation of leaders through mentorship by providing a place for our youth to evolve their musical gifts through originality and creativity. When we have faith and allow the Holy Spirit to move, nothing is impossible when our hearts align with God.  Above everything we desire a Christ centered worship team and for Him to be glorified. 

Our worship team practices every Thursday evening from 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM @ The Oak’s Community Church.

Celebrate Recovery

The purpose of Celebrate Recovery is to encourage men and women to fellowship and celebrate God’s healing power in our lives as we work our way along the road to recovery.  We open the door by sharing our experiences, strengths and hopes with one another. By working the steps and applying their biblical principles, we begin to grow spiritually and eventually become free from our hurts, habits and hang-ups. This freedom creates joy, peace, and most importantly, a stronger personal relationship with others and our loving and forgiving Higher Power, Jesus Christ.

We meet every Friday @ 7PM at the Oaks Community Church. On the 1st Friday of the month we have a dinner. Dinner is @ 6:15 PM in the HHH @ the Oaks Community Church.
