And welcome to our new website. It’s a work in progress during the month of May – but we wanted to get it up and running because we are making some changes at our church (be sure to check our Worship page – that’s the main update). Check back in the coming weeks as we add pictures and finalize our format and fill in more detailed information for our different ministries. You can also check out our Facebook pages (Oak Chapel United Methodist Church and Oak Chapel UMYF). But for now…
Our church is a wonderful community that reflects the diversity of God’s good creation. Small enough to feel like family, but active enough to find plenty of ways to connect through worship, study, service, small group and fellowship activities.
We are a gathering of people young and old and in-between. We are single, in a relationship, married and widowed. Some of us were born in the U.S., others are recent immigrants from places like Jamaica, Trinidad, India, Ivory Coast, Nigeria and Sierra Leone. A few of us have kids (we’d love to have more here!), some don’t, others have watched their children grow and have kids of their own. We have people new to religion and those who have spent their lives in community of faith. We have people who know what they believe, and those who have lots of questions and even some doubt. That’s ok – we’re all on this journey together, wherever we find ourselves.
Oak Chapel is the kind of church where all are welcome (and by all, we really do mean all), the kind of church where it’s easy to join in with others as we discover our faith, give glory to God, and learn to love and serve our neighbors. Come and grow with us!
