Welcome to Oakdale
We are a vibrant community of Disciple-Makers who have been growing God's kingdom in the Baltimore Washington Metropolitan area since 1801. We desire to create disciple-making communities. We do this by teaching people to love, serve, and share Jesus with others through disciple-making. Wherever you are in the process, we're here to help you grow and share the love of Christ with others. Let us help you take the next steps in the journey to know Christ.
What is our purpose
Vision- Jesus in the heart of every neighbor
Mission - Take the Gospel into all of life
Values - to be real, relational and fun
New Sermon Series Starting 4/11
It’s in the news every day; another random act of violence, the pandemic, climate change, anxiety, depression, political divisiveness and on and on. Our world is full of both beauty and tragedy, suffering and solace. How can we make sense of it all? What does God think? Why doesn’t God stop it? You are invited to discover God’s side of the story about life and to learn how to put the pieces of history together. We will experience redemption, renewal, and hope.
Discovering God’s Story starts Sunday April 11th at Oakdale in-person and online at 9AM & 11AM.
