The Oakmont Church family seeks to be a missional congregation, being Christ's presence wherever we go and whatever we do. We emphasize being the church outside the congregational walls rather than going to a church service held inside a building. We focus on telling the story of God in history as revealed through the biblical narratives, and becoming a mature follower of Jesus.
Both of our Sunday morning worship gatherings use a variety of artistic, music, prayer, video, drama, and spoken ways of accomplishing these aims - proclaiming the good news of Jesus Christ, worshiping God authentically, and helping people move from a consumer Christian mentality to that of mature discipleship to Jesus.
While we have no dress requirements for either of our worship gatherings, our 11:00 Emerge Worship Gathering does tend to have a more casual dress look. However, feel free to dress in more formal wear (suits and ties, dresses, etc.) or as casual as you'd like for either of our two worship gatherings.
Expect to be warmly greeted by greeters, ushers, church staff, and Oakmont members before, during, and following our worship gatherings. We want you to feel as if you have arrived at "home," and we will be disappointed if we don't get to speak to you and know you better. So come by and speak to one of our ministers following the worship gathering so we can begin to connect with you in a more personal way.
The aesthetic environment can aid one's experience of God during a time of worship. We work to create a sacred space in both worship gatherings using crosses, candles, banners, communion symbols, artwork, visual creations for scriptures and prayers, and visual images projected on the screen. We hope that a multi-sensory approach to the worship gathering involving seeing, hearing, tasting, smelling, touching, and experiencing allows you to experience the mystery of God's presence when His people gather to worship Him.
