Here are some unique opportunities that allow you to have ministry experience without making any long-term commitments. The number one goal is to glorify God through our service. We get to be a reflection of the love of God to those around us by serving others.

This is the behind the scenes aspect of the worship ministry. Technical Arts is responsible for Sound, Camera, Lights, and the Computer Action of the service. For more information contact Della Stevens at

Bakers & Takers


One of the purposes of this ministry is to show the genuine care and friendliness of the Oakwood family in a non-threatening way. We do this every Sunday by delivering a fresh baked good to our visitors’ homes. Bakers: Call to volunteer to bake a fresh item attractively wrapped for Sunday delivery. Takers: Call to arrange to help deliver baked goods to our visitors’ homes one Sunday after church. For more information contact Pastor Rusty at
