At the Oak Arbor New Church, our motto states that we are “a Church for life.” We practice this motto by working to “Build healthy relationships with God, His Word, and each other.”
For the 2023-24 year at Oak Arbor, our regular Sunday services will hinge around the relationship we have with the Lord’s Word, both individually and collectively. We plan to serve this theme by:
1. Developing worship services together that will help us to understand the Word more fully and personally, and inspire us to seek out the “path of life” and “walk uprightly” in it.
You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore. (Psalm 16:11)
For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly. (Psalm 84:11)

2. Supporting each other in developing and maintaining the devotional habits of regular prayer and reading the Word daily.
This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. (Joshua 1:8)
And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. 7 "You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. (Deuteronomy 6:6-7)
Easter Daily Devotionals, 2024
Each daily email in this program features a scriptural passage from the Gospel of Luke, followed by readings and reflections. We hope these readings will deepen your sense of God’s presence in your life this Easter season.
Readings will begin on Sunday, March 3rd, and will run until Monday, April 1st. There are also optional online discussion groups that you can join.
3. Offering workshops, book studies, and doctrinal classes, designed to help us read the Word with comfort, understanding, and purpose; and to find real personal meaning in the Lord’s Divine Message of life and salvation
"Ho! Everyone who thirsts, Come to the waters; And you who have no money, Come, buy and eat. Yes, come, buy wine and milk Without money and without price. Incline your ear, and come to Me. Hear, and your soul shall live; And I will make an everlasting covenant with you—The sure mercies of David. (Isaiah 55:1, 3)
