About Oak Grove Student Ministry

Youth Group

[6th – 12th grade]

Wednesday Nights | 6:30pm-8pm

On Wednesday evenings, we meet from 6:30 to 8:00 for all students 6 to 12 grade. Through food, games, music, people, the Bible, dialogue, worship, and prayer, we seek to produce disciples that make disciples.

Bring your Bibles. Bring your friends. Prepare to grow close to Christ.

Sunday School

Sunday Mornings

| 9am-10am

On Sunday mornings (9:00-10:00) in the Fireside Room, we meet to focus on scripture and the basics of studying, understanding and applying theologically the author’s original intent.

Bring your Bibles. You are going to need it. 

Purpose Statement:

Discipling youth so that they may relate with God through the Bible, listen to the Holy Spirit, live out God’s ways in community, to develop and continue in their relationship with Christ through knowledge and works for the rest of their lives.

(Colossians 1:9-14)

9 For this reason also, since the day we heard this, we haven’t stopped praying for you. We are asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding, 10 so that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him: bearing fruit in every good work and growing in the knowledge of God, 11 being strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, so that you may have great endurance and patience, joyfully 12 giving thanks to the Father, who has enabled you to share in the saints’ inheritance in the light. 13 He has rescued us from the domain of darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of the Son he loves. 14 In him we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

Christian Standard Bible (Nashville, TN: Holman Bible Publishers, 2017), Col 1:9–14.
