10:45 Worship Service

As of January 15, 2023, we have changed our Worship and Sunday School times. 

Our SS will now meet @ 9:40 with Worship meeting @ 10:45. 

Worship Sundays at 10:45 a.m.

Eclectic Worship

Our 10:45 worship gathering incorporates a variety of artistic, music, prayer, video, and dramatic acts of worship to proclaim the good news of Jesus and offer genuine worship of God.  The music style includes praise teams, organ, piano, band, orchestra instruments, along with our Chancel Choir and various vocal ensembles.  

What to Expect

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. 

Our Sunday morning worship gathering uses 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. 

We have no dress requirements for our worship gatherings, so feel free to dress in more formal wear (suits and ties, dresses, etc.) or as casual as you'd like. 

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 a minister 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 our worship gathering 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. 

Becoming a Christian

Romans 6:23 in the New Testament of the Bible says, "The gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." God also wants you to live a full and meaningful life right now - "I have came that they might have life, and have it more abundantly." (John 10:10)

God's purpose for your life if fulfilled by His love through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. "For God so loved the world that He gave His only son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life."

You cannot enter heaven and receive eternal life without the forgiveness of your sins. God is holy and cannot abide the presence of sin. Romans 3:23 says "All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God."

So how do you receive this forgiveness? By turning away from your sins and trusting in Jesus Christ. In Romans 10:9 it says, "If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved."

Can your life have meaning? Yes, in a relationship with Jesus Christ. Do you have to go through life lonely? No, Jesus said, "I will be with you always." Can you receive eternal life? Yes, by admitting to God that you are a sinner, turning away from a sinful life, and asking Jesus to forgive you and have control in your life. The answers are up to you. 

God is always waiting to hear you. You can receive this free gift of salvation right now, where you are, simply by praying a prayer something like this: "Dear God, I know that Jesus is your Son, and that He died on the cross and was raised from the dead. I know I have sinned and need forgiveness. I am willing to turn from my sins and receive Jesus as my Savior and Lord. Thank you for saving me. In Jesus' name. Amen."

By praying this prayer sincerely, you can be sure that Jesus has heard you and forgiven you. 

If you would like to talk to someone about this decision please contact one of the ministerial staff.
