What to Expect

We can’t wait to welcome you home to Oakland Church! It’s our heart that you feel right at home from the moment you pull into the parking lot.

Friendly, casual volunteers are positioned at every doorway to guide you where you need to go and help you every step of the way. We even have an exclusive present waiting for you—just let one of our team know that it’s your first time!

Sunday at 8:30am

Located in the Main Sanctuary

Our 8:30 services have a more traditional feel, and usually include our Oakland Choir and a handful of beloved hymns led by Oakland Worship, sometimes accompanied by organ. Oakland Kids is available for your kiddos, birth through 4th grade. The message is the same as the other weekend services.

Sunday at 11:00am

Located in the OMC (Gym)

Our 11:00 services are more relaxed & modern, with songs led by Oakland Worship in a full band of guitars, keys, and drums. Oakland Kids is available for your kiddos, birth through 4th grade. The message is the same as the other weekend services.

How should I dress?

There is no dress code! Come the way you wake up, for all we care! Some people show up in suits, and others wear ripped jeans and t-shirts. We want you to wear whatever makes you feel comfortable, so that you are ready to receive.

What about my kids?

We have yet to meet a kid who doesn’t love Oakland Kids! Our children’s ministry is available at all weekend services, and is for kids birth through 4th grade. You can easily register your kiddo at any main entrance, and they will be dismissed from the main service shortly after the music. We would be so excited to give you a tour of our children’s facilities—just head downstairs to our kid’s wing and ask for Noah Ford, our Oakland Kids Director.

Should I bring anything with me?

Some people come with a Bible or have a Bible app handy, and a notebook for taking notes if they wish. Many just show up, though, so don’t feel like you need to bring anything.

We can’t wait to see you in church this weekend!
