This is Us

Oakland Church is a large, growing church in Johnstown, PA, with a vibrant history of more than 100 years—yet we remain more committed than ever to make passionate and compassionate followers of Jesus Christ. It doesn't matter if you come from a church background or if you forgot where you left your Bible years ago... you are welcome here!

What to Expect This Weekend

What does a service look like?

When you arrive, some friendly volunteers will point you in the right direction and answer any questions you may have. The service will last about 75 minutes and includes a message from the Bible, passionate live worship music, and an opportunity for prayer.

What about the 8:30am service?

The early service has more traditional elements. This coming weekend will probably include a few beloved hymns accompanied by piano or organ.

What about the 11am service?

The late service has more modern elements. This coming weekend will probably include vibrant worship by a full band.
