Who We Are
The mission of Oakland United Methodist Church is to serve our Lord Jesus Christ in proclaiming his Word, to reach out to the community near and far and lovingly care for one another in Christian fellowship.
Oakland United Methodist Church began in 1850 as a meeting group near what is now Old Oakland Church at the corner of Oakland and Mineral Hill Roads. The present church was built in 1892 on land donated by the Bennett Family.
The membership consists of a mixture of young, middle and older families. The congregation has strong support for each other and always responds in time of need to share our love and faith in Jesus Christ.
We hope that you will join us for worship and Sunday School. We would be happy to have you, as visitors are always welcome. If we can be of assistance to you or you would like further information on our congregation, please call the pastor or a committee chair listed in this pamphlet on the back page. May the Lord Jesus bless you with his presence and joy!
