Women's Ministry

The goal of Oakwood’s Heart-to-Heart Women’s Ministry is to build authentic relationships with the women who God has brought to Oakwood.  We believe that everyone at Oakwood was brought to our church by God for a divine purpose.  Our highest priority is to help women meet Jesus, make Him their Savior and then grow in their knowledge of their Lord.

Heart-to-Heart sponsors many opportunities for women to connect with one another.  Some of the activities and programs sponsored by Heart-to-Heart are Bible Studies, a monthly luncheon, Christmas Tea, Flower Planter Workshop, Simply Sharing, Fall Retreat, Self Defense Class, Summer Picnic, and Moms & Dads Day Out.

Women of Faith Simulcast

Join us at Oakwood Community Church on February 20-21, 2015 for a transformational weekend with Women of Faith as we host their 2015 live simulcast event: Unwrap the Bible. During this two-day event Bible teachers like Christine Caine, Priscilla Shirer, Lisa Harper, Shelia Walsh, and Charlotte Gambill will deliver in-depth, expository teaching as they unwrap the life-changing promises of the Bible. Imagine thousands of women across the globe worshiping and opening God’s Word together! This is a perfect event to invite friends and family from our community to attend with you. The cost is only $20 per person if you register and pay by February 7th (cost goes up to $25 starting Feb. 8th). This price includes your registration, as well as food and drinks. You can register and pay online with your debit card or at Oakwood on Sunday mornings.

Renew, Restore, Refresh! Pamper yourself both physically and spiritually at this special women’s retreat. Worship, rest, time in God’s Word, time with sisters-in-Christ, and great food are all included in the weekend package at Grace Adventures located just north of Mus-kegan , Michigan. The camp is on Upper Silver Lake next to the Sand Dunes and Lake Michigan (about a 3½ hour drive from the Oxford/Orion/Ortonville areas). Please note that you must be 18 years old or older to attend the retreat.

Since the year 2003, thousands of women have been directly impacted by hearing Sandy Rayla speak, attending Beautiful Womanhood small groups led by mentors, and applying the Beautiful Womanhood mentoring curriculum. For this retreat, Sandy will be speaking to us about growing in holy confidence. She will share biblical principles, practical tips, and inspiring stories to guide and encourage any woman looking for God’s best in her life.

The 2014 Ladies Fall Retreat is now over - we had 36 women from Oakwood go to Grace Adventures this year! Look for more information about upcoming events for women soon...
