Old Testament heroes are best known for their most celebrated moments: Moses dividing the Red Sea; David slaying Goliath; Gideon routing an insurmountable army; Joshua marching around the defiant walls of Jericho.  And Elijah—calling down fire on Mount Carmel.  Blinded by the remarkable narratives of our biblical heroes, we can forget they each had a backstory—months and years of development, even difficulty, which fortified their spiritual muscle and prepared them for the tasks that made their lives unforgettable.  Every serious believer longs to summon up the kind of boldness and faith that can stand firm on Mount Carmel and pray down heaven into impossible situations. Yet few are willing to go through the process required to get them there. Strength of faith, character, and boldness can only be shaped in the hidden fires of silence, sameness, solitude, and adversity. Those who patiently wait on God in the darkness emerge with their holy loyalty cemented, their courage emblazoned, and their confident belief in Him set afire.  Join Priscilla Shirer on this 7-session journey through the life and times of the prophet Elijah to discover how the fire on Mount Carmel was forged in the valley of famine. And how the emboldened, fiery faith you desire is being fashioned by God in your life right now.

Fall Sunday School

Fall Sunday School

Gospel? It means good news. As Christians, it’s all too easy to forget that. The Gospel Project is a Christ-centered, chronological Bible study curriculum for kids, students, and adults.

Christ-centered discipleship:  Follows a proven plan to nurture disciples from preschoolers to senior adults with Christ-centered Bible study resources.

Chronological Bible study: God’s gospel project unfolds from Genesis to Revelation, and our studies help participants of all ages study the Bible in an age-appropriate way.

Gospel story: From Genesis the Revelation, we celebrate the redemptive plan that unfolds throughout all Scripture.

Gospel culture: We believe the gospel ultimately draws us into community and helps us develop a culture that is saturated by grace and the gospel.

Gospel mission:  Good news is contagious, and The Gospel Project encourages people of all ages to live invitationally—at home and around the world.

NEW:  Adult Sunday school class beginning Sunday, August 22nd!!

New Resources!

New Resources!

We believe that God should be glorified in all we do.  We believe that we were created to worship God alone.  Parents are given the great responsibility to raise their families to walk in the ways of the Lord, and the church has the very important task to train and equip families to pursue God with passion.  It is hard to swim against the current, and we hope these resources will help build a strong family foundation no matter what your home may look like right now.  Whether you are single, engaged, newly married, have children, empty nesters, or living in a senior center, the Lord wants you to have life and life abundantly!  The church loves to partner with families to help strengthen and encourage faith every day of the year! Check out these resources for all ages in any season of your life.  Get involved!  Everyone has a role in the family of God.

My Family Season
(Password:  myhome2020)

With more than a dozen topics, HomePointe Pointers provide a biblical perspective on common family seasons and challenges along with recommended “going further” resources (free and for purchase) and a description of ministry programs or a contact person at your church to support each situation.  The best intentions are useless without practical ideas to bring faith home.  This is a versatile resource that makes it easy for couples, parents, and grandparents to do the right thing.  They also serve as ideal tools for motivating seasonal intentionality on holidays such as Father’s Day, Easter, Christmas, and Thanksgiving.

My Faith Path
(Password:  myhome2020)

Parents will enjoy looking at practical and applicable ideas and ways to bless your child no matter what age or stage they are about to embark on.  My Faith Path has a link designed to go with your child’s age from 0 to 18 and encourages parents to find meaningful ways to have real spiritual conversations.  It enables you to bless your child and strengthen their faith walk and yours as you walk together through life.  This is a very practical way to click for ideas on ways to bless your child in their faith.

GriefShare Support Group

Find support and encouragement for your grief journey. Often, friends and family want to help you, but don’t know how. That’s the reason for GriefShare. Our group is led by caring people who have experienced grief and have successfully rebuilt their lives. We understand how you feel because we’ve been in the same place. We will walk with you on the long path through grief toward healing and hope for the future.

GriefShare is a network of 15,000+ churches worldwide equipped to offer grief support groups. The program is nondenominational and features biblical concepts for healing from your grief. Learn more about GriefShare at www.griefshare.org.

GriefShare is a support group that meets weekly at North Oak Community Church Office, 3002 Northridge Court.  You’ll find it to be a warm, caring environment and will come to see your group as an “oasis” on your long journey through grief. There are three key parts to your GriefShare experience:

  • Video seminar: Encouraging, information-packed videos featuring leading grief recovery experts.
  • Support Group: Small group discussion about the weekly video content.
  • Workbook: Journaling and personal study exercises that reinforce the weekly session topics.

When? GriefShare meets on Thursdays from 6:00 P.M.- 8:00 P.M. You are welcome to begin attending our GriefShare group at any point.  Each session is “self-contained,” so you do not have to attend in sequence.  You will be able to pick up any sessions you missed in our next cycle which begins on Thursday, August 26, 2021.
