Oakwood Church St Paul


There are many ideas about what a church should be like. Sometimes church structures become so complicated that the essence of the New Testament pattern is obscured. At Oakwood Church, we want to put our best efforts into the core essentials of what a church should be doing. So when you attend a Sunday service you will experience prayer, expository preaching, and encouraging Christian fellowship. And throughout the week you’ll find opportunities to learn, connect, serve, and reach out.

We are intentionally simple. We welcome you to experience this with us.

God bless.

Pastor David Sheppard

Sundays @ 10:30 am



Throughout human history, people have wanted to know the future. In Jesus’ day, people would travel to Delphi, Greece to consult the Pythia, the title of the high priestess in the Temple of Apollo. There is evidence that through breathing vapors that emerged from the ground, this woman would enter a trance-like state during which she would offer guidance to those who sought it – of course, for a fee. Unfortunately, as with any type of paganism, this practice opened the seeker to hucksterism at best, and demonic influence at worst.



For a Christian, part of obedient living is seeking God’s guidance. He or she longs to know God’s will so as to pursue it. But what do we mean by God’s will? How can we discern it? And what affect will this have on our future? In this series, How Should I Know?, we’ll examine these questions and more in light of what the Bible teaches. As Paul prayed, we long for you to be “filled with the knowledge of His will.” (Colossians 1:9)

Wednesday Nights
6:30-8:00 pm


Come Together is a multi-generational event designed to integrate activity, music, fellowship and Bible study. Each Wednesday begins casually at 6:30 during which we hang out, drink some coffee, and catch up on the week’s events. At 7:00 we launch the activity / music / Bible study segment. Right now the adults are examining Jesus’ letters to the seven churches in Revelation. Our youth are learning what the Bible teaching about how to become a Christian, how to face the challenges life brings, and how to share the good news of Jesus with their friends. Whatever your age or family situation, there is a place here for you!
