OUR ADULT MINISTRIES
There’s a place for everyone at Oak Grove!
Activities for both the Silent and the Baby Boomer generations. The Mission of the Senior Adult Ministries is to embrace the dignity of life, and offer comfort and care to seniors while engaging and empowering them to share their faith in Jesus Christ through prayer and service to others that all may experience the abundant life.
Oak Grove’s small group ministry, Covenant Groups, is helping hundreds of people grow in their faith! Covenant Groups meet regularly in homes around the community for the length of the school year, September through May. Each group has a facilitator and chooses their own curriculum, with help from the leadership and ministry staff of Oak Grove. Stay tuned for the next opportunity to join a Covenant Group in the fall of 2015!
Sunday school classes for all ages are settings for study of the Bible, of modern day issues, and of Christian practices. Some classes have a rotation of teachers while others are subject-based and are often taught by members of the class or outside guests. Nursery and child care are provided by the church. The classes enjoy and look for visitors, so please feel free to visit until you find the class where you feel most at home. Age categories pertaining to adult classes are for information and do not indicate age restrictions. If you have questions and need to speak with someone about Adult Christian Education, please contact Susan Allen Grady (404-636-758, ext 212). Classes are from 9:35am-10:45am on Sunday mornings.

WOW is a different kind of small group experience where women of all ages and stages meet each week on Thursday evenings at the church to feed our spiritual needs so we can feed the needs of those who depend on us. It is a group of women who share and pray together, study God’s Word, live in God’s grace and guidance, and apply God’s Word to our daily life. The purpose of WOW is to offer a place where you can grow and learn without adding more to your already overflowing plate. All women are welcome!! Participants can come and go for as few or as many sessions as needed and possible. For more information, contact Faye Traynelis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
