Community at Oak Ridge

GrowKids
Here at Oak Ridge we believe that God wants a relationship with each one of us from the very start of our lives. That’s why our GrowKids program is dedicated to helping kids grow in their relationships with Jesus. We also know that parents are key in the spiritual growth of their children, so parents, we’re here for you, to help you and walk alongside you!
 
Teens
Your teenage years can be confusing, stressful, and full of choices. Who are you going to be? Who are you going to let define you? Most importantly, is church going to be that thing your parents do or something you want to be a part of? Here at Oak Ridge we want to help you figure out the answers to those questions as you continue your journey in your relationship with Jesus. 
Young Adults
As you move from high school to college, and then out of college into adult life, we want you to stay connected and grow in your relationship with Jesus. Your church family is here for you and wants to encourage your as you face big life decisions and continue to walk with Jesus. Bring your questions, bring your doubts, and walk through life in a community. 
Adults
Everyone needs to be in community with others. At Oak Ridge, we believe in doing life together. Our Grow Groups are where we laugh, cry, and get closer to God and to one another. They’re where our love for Jesus meets our love for people. So join a grow group today! We have groups for people from every walk of life, and all are welcome!
 

Service at Oak Ridge

We don’t think of service as something we have to do; it’s something we get to do! The God who created the universe and is working to redeem our community invites us to be a part of the work He is doing.
