Sunday School Teachers

Oak Road has a team of dedicated Sunday School teachers who love Jesus and love our kids by teaching them about their Savior.  Sunday School classes meet between our two Sunday services at 9:30am during the school year. We have classes for grade school: Pre-K, K-2nd, 3rd-5th, 6th-8th, and 9th-12th. 


Fellowship Team

ORLC Fellowship Committee is responsible for planning and preparing Family Night Meals on Wednesdays.  In addition to Family Night, we plan other events including Comedy Nights, Church Picnics, Ice cream Socials, and Bingo nights.  We also provide food and drinks for the Art Club Exhibit and Church Business Meetings.


Hebrews 10:24-25 says  "Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near." (NLT)


Spending time with other like-minded people, can often lift us up, and help us keep our eyes on God.  God works through people to provide what we need. Coming together with others gives us the encouragement to continue in our mission as a church and as individuals. Breaking bread with each other is a simple form of this. It provides us with an opportunity to share gifts, and faith, with others in the church and the community.


Donations are always welcome in any form; making food, time in the kitchen, monetary contributions & ideas. Share your gift with us, and let us share with you.
