From the Pastor

How well we relate to and serve God and each other determines the quality of our life and the sense of peace and happiness we feel. That's why, at Oak Arbor, our ministry is to help build healthy relationships with God, His Word and each other.

I invite you to visit us and experience our welcoming, positive and supportive environment. We are blessed with some unique tools and resources that can help you and your family along your path. Our doors are open to you.

Please don't hesitate to contact me by phone or e-mail. You are welcome here, and I hope to see you soon.

Derek Elphick, Pastor

“Leaves of the Tree” Class

We are taking a break during the Living Gratefully Program.

Next class: Wednesday March 23rd,

7 PM in the Oak Arbor Church Parlor.


The title for this class is taken from Revelation 22:2 which speaks of the Tree of Life having leaves for “the healing of the nations.”  The Lord’s truth does indeed heal, so Pastor Derek and Assistant Pastor Joel are taking turns during the 2015/16 calendar year to present topics of New Church doctrine for study, reflection and discussion (expanding on topics that typically can only be touched on in a sermon).  These classes are for long-time members, young adults, newcomers, and anyone who wants to learn more about the New Church. All are welcome!
