Oakwood is resuming in-person gatherings with outdoor worship services on Sundays at 11:30am starting on June 7th. We will continue to offer the online worship service at 10:00am on Sundays for those who are more at-risk due to underlying health conditions and for those are uncomfortable with gathering at this time. Restrooms will be available with limited capacities to ensure social distancing, as well as increased cleaning and sanitizing practices, including asking attendees to sanitize their hands on the way in and on the way out of the restrooms.
With recent stay-at-home restrictions being relaxed and the coronavirus health situation improving, we believe this is the right time to begin gathering again, and the outdoor service is the safest option. We will continue to evaluate and are working on plans to resume indoor services, meetings and events safely in the future.
Oakwood Student Ministry will resume in-person gatherings with outdoor events for high school students on Sunday nights and middle school students on Wednesday nights starting the week of June 7th. Celebrate Recovery will meet on Monday nights at 7pm in the lobby and breakout rooms with through cleaning happening after the meeting. Small groups and Bible studies can meet in homes or in the community, but not in the church building at this time.
Oakwood's staff will resume limited office hours during the summer starting next week. More details will be communicated on Sunday and via email. If you have any questions, please contact Pastor Don Jackson (firstname.lastname@example.org), Pastor Shane Stec (email@example.com) or Pastor Ben Elliott (firstname.lastname@example.org).
