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 are a non-denominational church with a Wesleyan foundation and desire to create disciple-making communities. We do this by equipping people to hear, obey, 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.

Please text the word CONNECT to the number 78716 to learn more about Oakdale and get connected.

Sunday Service Information

Plan your Visit

At Oakdale, you'll find a place to connect with people driven to go and make disciples. Every Sunday, join us in-person at 9AM & 11AM for worship. We also broadcast our service online at 9:00 and 11:00 a.m. at There is live hosted chat and prayer available during the 9AM service.


Sunday Services typically include:

  • a mixture of modern worship songs and hymns all led by the praise band 
  • a time for the congregation to share disciple-making stories about how they responded to God's call in obedience and faith to be spiritually obvious but not spiritually obnoxious as everyday disciple-makers.
  • a bible-based practical message by one our pastors that will call each of us to obedience in the coming week (see current sermon series info below).

You can access sermon notes, the scripture for Sunday morning and upcoming announcements and events by visiting or by using your phone to scan the QR code on the pew in front of you in the sanctuary.

Where to Park

Please park in the front parking lot along Georgia Avenue and enter the building through the doors on the front of the church. Ushers will greet you and your family when you arrive at the Georgia Avenue Doors.

What to Wear

You will see everything, from suits and dresses to T-shirts and jeans (even shorts in the summer). Your presence in worship is what honors God.

Current Sermon Series

All of us want to belong, we want to be part of a community. It is part of human nature, we were created to be together. As Christians and Disciple-Maker's it is important that the community we are involved in is one that pushes us to grow in our faith, take bold steps of obedience to God and encourages us to share our story and the Good News with everyone in our life. It takes a transformational community to do that. Join us for our message series, Behavior Shifts: Creating Transformational Community, as we look at what should, and should not be part of a christian small group.
