Our Ministries

WOMEN’S MINISTRIES

Currently, we have a women’s Bible study group that meets on Fridays at the church at 10 am, studying the book God Does His Best Work with Empty by Nancy Guthrie. There are also lots of fellowship opportunities for women to get together with one another, including monthly Game Nights and beach hang outs.

MEN’S MINISTRIES

We also have a Bible study for men that meets at the church on Friday mornings at 7 am, in person and Zoom. There are also opportunities for the men to gather for fellowship with one another.

MIDWEEK STUDY AND PRAYER GROUP

We gather on Wednesday evenings at 6:30 pm for fellowship, to study together, and for prayer. Currently, we are reading the book Gentle and Lowly by Dane Ortland. All are welcome to join at any time…this is a very laid back time.

SUNDAY SCHOOL

We are offering a brand new Sunday School class directly after the worship service, starting 1/9/22 that will go along with our sermon series The Church Is…, looking into the specifics of Oak River and what makes us unique from other churches. Everyone is invited to join us.

FAMILY MINISTRIES

At Oak River, we love kids and families! And we want to do whatever we can to come alongside parents as they raise their children. Children are always welcome in worship, and we’ve put together some activity bags for them to work on throughout the service, and occasionally have a special children’s message just for them. We also have several family events planned for the upcoming year: an easter egg hunt and spring festival, a summer vacation bible school, and a fall homecoming festival. AND we are in the process of building and installing a playground on our property. 

MISSIONS AND OUTREACH

We support several local ministries, including RUF (a campus outreach ministry at FGCU), the pregnancy resource center, and Love INC. We also support global missions through Operation Christmas Child and Earth Mission. We have an active missions committee, and we are prayerfully hoping to go on a missions trip in the summer of 2023. We continue to seek to find ways to partner with gospel ministries and missionaries all over the community and our world.
