Regathering Plan

In-person Worship SundayS, 9:00 am

We’re not reopening, because we never closed. The mission has never stopped while apart. We’re eager but not in a hurry.

We will continue to have our service online at both 9AM and 11AM at

Oakdale’s regathering plans are based on current local, state and CDC guidelines but the timing of our plan is based on guidance from the Oakdale Board. 

Our goal is safety and serving people well. We’re prayerfully asking: how do we best fulfill our mission of Making Disciples who make Disciples. 

Oakdale Church will gather only for in-person worship at 9:00AM
