Oak View's REsponse to the Coronavirus


Dear Oak View Family,

This Sunday, we’ll be regathering on campus for both our Classic Service at 9:30 AM and our Modern Service at 11:00 and offering childcare at both services for parents who attend either service.  We understand not everyone is ready to return to on campus services yet.  And we encourage those who are at high risk from the virus to watch the services online.  We will continue to offer and enhance our online services at both hours on YouTube and Facebook. 


Our church has done a wonderful job continuing to connect, worship, serve and give during this time of unprecedented crisis in our nation.  This Sunday, June 7, as we open up our on campus gathering for our Classic Worship service – it’s important to note that Oak View  was never really closed.  Our church has been ministering and connecting and worshiping every day.
