The Men's Ministry at Oakwood Community Church exists to help men know Christ and grow in their faith. We do this through men's small group Bible studies, as well as occasional events, retreats and service projects. Below are some of the events and opporutnities currently taking place in our men's ministry.
A group of men meet Monday mornings at 10:00am at Oakwood Community Church. This provides an opportunity to connect with other men and grow in your faith. All men are welcome, so stop by and check it out.
The men are currently viewing and discussing the American Heritage Series by historian david Barton. This educational documentary series includes 26 episodes that retrace America's Christian foundations, discuss the secularization of history today, and recount how God was the root of America's birth as a free nation.
In May of each year, a group of men from Oakwood go to Camp Barakel in the beautiful north woods of Michigan. It's a great time to be spiritually refreshed and connect with other guys. You can take time to rest, or you can keep active with a variety of optional activities, such as fishing, biking, archery, a shooting range, softball, the zipline, and more!
The Spring 2012 Men's Retreat is scheduled for May 18-20, 2012. The cost is $110 for the entire weekend including all meals, lodging and activities. A $50 deposit is required when you register. Register online at Camp Barakel's website or download a registration form to print and send in the mail.
A couple of times each year, men from Oakwood use their automotive skills to serve others by providing a free car clinic. Workers donate their time to help people in the church and community with needed car repairs. Those getting vehicles repaired must pay for any needed parts, but all labor is free. This has been a huge blessing to many families.
Oakwood hosts a Wild Game Dinner for men in the church and community each December. As with most men's events, there is always a ton of great food! Many men contribute game from the the hunting season for the meal, and the evening includes door prizes, hunting stories, and a special guest speaker. This year's Wild Game Dinner will be on Saturday, Dec. 1st from 5-7pm. Our guest speaker this year will be Detroit's very own Frank Tanana! Don't miss a great night! The cost of the event is only $5.00. Click here to download a PDF flyer.
