Worship at Oakland Presbyterian Church (OPC) joyfully gives all praise and honor, glory and power to the true God, God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We are committed to being and becoming a worshiping community where the Bible, the Word of God is preached and where we can respond to that Word by worshiping God. Through worship we acknowledge God present in the world and in our lives.
Christians may worship at any time, as all time has been consecrated by God. We gather together each Sunday morning for worship as the Family of Jesus Christ. Weekly Worship offers the opportunity to praise God in song and prayer, and to be nurtured and challenged as the Word of God is preached. Worship services are held in the Sanctuary.
Our 8:45 a.m. service offers a less formal approach to worship and includes a blend of contemporary music and many “favorite” hymns. We are led in worship by the Praise Team, consisting of vocal members, guitar, drums, and keyboard.
The 11 a.m. service is a more traditional service which includes a full choir, organ and often a string ensemble, or brass ensemble. We provide children’s church for those age 4 through grade 2. Children join their parents in the sanctuary for about 10-15 minutes, until they are invited to the front of the church for a brief children’s message. The children may then leave the sanctuary to attend a special worship experience planned just for them.
A note for families with children:
Parents should feel free to keep their young children with them in worship, as we believe that children learn how to worship by being in worship.On Sunday mornings, children have a special bulletin, with Biblical activities designed to interest and teach.
Childcare is provided in the Nursery for both worship services as well as Sunday school. The Nursery has two trained staff members, and church volunteers are used when needed. Each parent is provided with beeper, so the staff may contact you if you are needed by your child for any reason during worship or Sunday school.
Children are welcome and invited to participate in all worship services. Activity pages and crayons are available in narthex in the back of the church. A nursery is available for infants through 3-year-olds.
Children ages 3 through 3rd grade are also invited to attend Children’s Church. Following the choir’s anthem, Tiffany Goggans (Director of Christian Education) and other leaders will invite the children to leave for Children’s Church. At Children’s Church, children will experience a child friendly worship service along with interactive activities. They end their time with some fun playground time.
