What to Expect When You Visit

Visiting a church for the first time can feel uncomfortable. We understand. 

So here are a few things to help you feel more at home

  • WHEN YOU ARRIVE


    EXPECT TO BE GREETED AS YOU COME INTO OUR LOBBY. WE HAVE SOME OFFICIAL GREETERS, BUT OUR CONGREGATION TENDS TO BE EXTRA FRIENDLY SO YOU MAY BE WELCOMED BY MANY PEOPLE.  


    OUR GREETERS WILL HELP YOU GET ORIENTED AND FIND YOUR WAY AROUND. IF YOU HAVE ANY ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS, PLEASE ASK! WE ARE HERE TO SERVE.

  • OUR WORSHIP SERVICE


    OUR PRIMARY PURPOSE IS TO HELP EVERY PERSON WHO ATTENDS TO GROW IN THEIR KNOWLEDGE AND WORSHIP OF GOD. WE WILL SING ABOUT WHO GOD IS AND WHAT HE HAS DONE FOR US. WE WILL PRAY AND PROVIDE PEOPLE WITH OPPORTUNITIES TO WORSHIP GOD IN DIFFERENT WAYS. WE WILL HAVE A GOSPEL-FOCUSED MESSAGE FROM THE BIBLE. AND WE TRY TO FINISH IN ABOUT 75 minutes.

  • Child care


    WE LOVE CHILDREN AT OAKDALE! 

    OUR NURSERY IS LOCATED JUST OFF THE LOBBY TO THE RIGHT OF THE SANCTUARY. IT IS A SAFE PLACE, ATTENDED BY SCREENED VOLUNTEERS WHO CARE FOR CHILDREN FROM BIRTH TO 35 MONTHS. WE RECOMMEND THAT YOU ARRIVE 10-15 MINUTES EARLY SO YOU HAVE ADEQUATE TIME TO CHECK YOUR CHILD/CHILDREN INTO THE NURSERY. 


    AFTER THE MUSIC PORTION OF THE WORSHIP SERVICE, CHILDREN AGES 3-5 ARE INVITED TO TAKE PART IN CHILDREN’S CHURCH. LEAD BY A TEAM OF TEACHERS, CHILDREN’S CHURCH IS AN AGE-APPROPRIATE TIME OF WORSHIP, LEARNING, AND FUN ACTIVITIES.


    WE ALSO OFFER ACTIVITY BOXES FOR KIDS AGED 6-10 TO HELP THOSE WITH BUSY MINDS AND HANDS HAVE SOMETHING TO HELP THEM LEARN ALONG WITH THEIR PARENTS. BOXES ARE AVAILABLE IN THE FOYER AFTER THE MUSIC TIME FINISHES.

  • What To Wear


    GOD WELCOMES ALL PEOPLE TO WORSHIP HIM AND JOIN HIS FAMILY, SO WE DO, TOO. 


    WE UNDERSTAND THAT SOMETIMES PEOPLE WANT TO KNOW WHAT TO WEAR SO THEY FEEL COMFORTABLE.


    WE HAVE THOSE THAT DRESS BOTH SEMI-FORMALLY AND CASUALLY. YOU WILL FIT IN WHETHER YOU DRESS UP OR SIMPLY WEAR JEANS AND A T-SHIRT.  


    WE CARE MORE ABOUT YOU THAN WHAT YOU WEAR.
