Below is our offering of missions and ministries groups for adults. Along with the normal Sunday and Wednesday get togethers, there are many Small Groups and Committees that meet during the week.
- Come and drink coffee, eat biscuits and pastries and fellowship with one another before Sunday School in our Fellowship Coffee House.
- We offer several Sunday School classes for adults. There are some that are more life application and others that are more Bible study. Hopefully with the diverse range of classes, you will find one that suits you.
- Following Sunday School is the Worship Service. In this hour we worship our Lord through readings, prayer and singing. We also enjoy a message brought by our Pastor.
- A supper is offered in the Fellowship Hall. These suppers are fundraisers for different missions groups in the church. Please call the church office if you plan to attend and are not on the regular attendees list.
- Prayer meeting and Bible study for adults is held with the Pastor every Wednesday evening. In this time we pray for those in need and have a Bible study.
- The adult choir and the handbell choir, the Celebration Ringers, meet to practice for performances in the church.
There are many missions groups at White Oak. Below is a list of them and their purposes.
