Return To Church

Oakwood Church Friends and Family,

This note feels like it has been a long time coming. We are excited to announce to you that we will start holding services, IN PERSON, on the weekend of June 6th and 7th. Services will be held at 300 Old Creek Dr. Saline at the First Assembly of God Church (Saline AOG). We’re grateful for Saline AOG’s graciousness in sharing their building with us. Our current plan is to meet at Saline AOG for the next three months. Woodland Meadows School will not be available again until school starts back up in the fall. We will also continue our online services for those who are not ready to return yet.

Saline AOG plans to restart their in-person services this coming Sunday, May 31st. Since their worship service is held at 11:00 AM on Sundays, we will start back with two services – one on Saturday at 5:00 PM and one at 9:00 AM on Sunday morning. The change in time for the Saturday service (from 7 PM to 5 PM) is an experiment we will try for the summer after conversations with many of those who typically attended Saturday services.

Know that we plan to practice social distancing during our services, including seating. We will ask folks to wear mask. However, individuals will not be forced to do this in order to be involved in the services. Hand sanitizer will be provided at all entrance areas, doors will be propped open, and areas will be disinfected after services. Also, initially we will only provide children’s classes during the Saturday and Sunday services for newborn through Grade 2. Children in grades 3 and above will join their families in the worship center.

We look forward to the opportunity to restart in-person services for our family and friends who are ready to return. Please continue praying for Oakwood as we finalize our planning for holding in-person services again.
