What Reopening the Church Looks Like

The church building has been cleaned and santized.  Restroom doors have been modified to allow for no touch entry. Bibles, songbooks, information cards and pens have been removed from the back of the pews. Signs have been posted about maintaining social distancing. Every other pew has been taped off to ensure social distancing.

We resumed SUNDAY MORNING ONLY services on MAY 17th  at 10:30am.  How quickly we can resume Sunday Morning Bible Study, Children’s Bible Study, Sunday, and Wednesday evening services and Ladies Bible Study will depend on how well we as a community and state are doing in combating the Coronavirus.  We will continue our live broadcasting on Facebook at 10:30am Sunday morning.  9:00 am for our live Facebook Sunday Bible Study with Sean Kiser on Sunday morning .   The Wednesday evening streaming service with Andrew Jones is 7:00 pm.  Renee Benett has a live streaming Ladies Bible Study at 7:00 pm on Tuesdays. The web address for Oak Grove's Facebook Page is oakgrovechurchofchrist

If you are coughing, congested, or running a fever, we ask you to please stay home.  We also understand if you are currently uncomfortable with corporate worship.

When you arrive, please go directly to the auditorium. Families of the same household can sit together but leave at least six feet between each family. At the end of service, please exit the building immediately. When exiting, please maintain the six feet between people rule.

If you wish to bring your own Bible you may do so.  All songs, Bible readings and announcements will be shown on the screen. 

We are doing the Lord’s Supper differently..  Everyone is given a plastic bag when they arrive that contains the combined elements of the communion. After partaking, everyone is asked to place the used communion container in the plastic bag and place it the trash cans by the doors in the rear of the auditorium after the service.

We are also do the offering differently. .  Please place your offering in one of the two boxes that are in the hallway and the rear of the auditorium.  Online giving is still available as well.

We are praying we can return to our normal activities at Oak Grove sooner than later.  We will be closely monitoring the statistics and guidelines to determine when we can safely do so.
