Classes and Programs

Journey Programs
These are spiritual growth programs designed to serve people who want to take a meaningful and positive step in personal and spiritual growth.  They are interactive, and create opportunities for individual study, building friendships, finding support, and becoming more connected.   There are typically three core components: individual study, small group participation, and Sunday worship. The purpose of the programs is to help people make progress on their journey in the context of a supportive and welcoming environment.   You can participate at whatever level you prefer, absorbing new ideas through listening and reading, or contributing your own thoughts and reflections during discussion times.  

Go to Oak Arbor's Journey page for this year's journey information


Youth Group
On Sundays twice a month from 5-7:30pm, teens in 7th through 10th Grade meet at the church for pizza, games, topical discussions and vesper services led by one of the pastors.  Periodically throughout the year the teens get involved in service projects for the church and local community.  Check calendar for details.

Morning Book Study / Reading Group

This morning class, which works like a "book club", is currently studying and discussing the book Heaven and Hell by Emanuel Swedenborg. Classes are held at individual's homes on Thursdays from 10:30 - 12 noon throughout the school year. They read assigned paragraphs and come prepared to discuss them. If you are interested in attending the classes, call or email the Pastor.
