What will you do with the rest of your life? Golf, rest, vacation, fish? These are all well and good, deserved and needed, but they will not show the Lord’s strength and power to the next generation. Seniors have a job to so, a mandate to follow, a course to take. The Senior Adult Ministry at Oakland is here to help. We provide many wonderful opportunities for you to be actively committed to and involved in worship, maturity, ministry, evangelism, missions, and fellowship.
At Oakland , we believe you never stop growing in your relationship with God and with others. Each of the following opportunities will help you make your golden years your most fruitful years.
“Now also when I am old and grey headed, O God, forsake me not; until I have shewed thy strength unto this generation, and thy power to every one that is to come.” Psalm 71:18

The Life Institute is our mid-week education program of small group studies driven by five purposes of a New Testament church. Our goal is to equip people in the areas of worship, fellowship, discipleship, ministry and evangelism, thus producing “Doers” of the Word, and not hearers only.
