What are community groups?
At the Oaks, we believe we were created by God not to live in isolation, but to share our lives with each other and build each other up in love through relationships with one another. We believe that through living in intentional, Christ centered community we receive the comfort of others, and through Christ we are changed in the context of these friendships.
The primary way we seek to accomplish this is through what we call our community groups. Community groups consist of smaller groups of people meeting weekly in various homes in Middletown and the surrounding communities to share life together, care for one another, discuss the sermon and serve the community around them. Every group is a little bit different, but the goal of all of our groups is to see the gospel transform our hearts and our lives in the context of community.
Community group schedule
Our groups meet for 10 weeks at a time in the fall, winter and spring. We call these "campaigns" because we are journeying through life with a goal of seeing advancement in our relationship with Christ and change in our lives.
Winter 2017 Campaign : January 22nd - April 29th
Spring 2017 Campaign : April 30th - July 7th
Fall 2017 Campaign : September - November
