Missions at Oak Grove Christian Church
Be the Local Church
Serve our Community
We live out our mission by:
- Caring for those in need, both spiritually and physically
- Breaking down human borders with the Gospel of Jesus Christ
- Uniting with the larger church family, both local and global
High School Equivalency Classes
We offer free High School Equivalency Classes currently by appointment or online.
Personal tutoring, learn at your own pace!
This is in response to the great need in the Oak Grove area for local classes. US Census Bureau reports 1,100+ adults within 5 miles of the church have not completed a high school level of education.
Missionary Stephanie Martin
Stephanie Martin serves in the Ivory Coast on college campuses through Cru.
Stephanie attended the church as a kid and was baptized here. It is an honor for us to support her ministry!
Oak Grove Nursing Home
Every Sunday morning, we provide a worship service for the residents at the Oak Grove Nursing Home, including prayer, music, communion, and a Bible lesson.
Our pastor holds a service on Thursdays on rotation with the Oak Grove Ministerial Alliance. They also go to Bristol Manor and Oak Grove Manor during the week.
Show-Me Christian Youth Home
Show-Me Christian Youth Home is compelled by Christ to rescue and restore young lives. Since 1967, Show-Me has provided safe, stable, loving homes and families to young people struggling because of circumstances in their current home environment. From the guidance of professionals, each child finds an individualized environment with layers of support designed to help them overcome their current struggles and find success.
Operating 11 homes across Missouri, Show-Me Christian Youth Home is dedicated to promoting the individual development of each child.
West Central Christian Service Camp
The ministry of West Central Christian Service Camp is to glorify God in all things by providing Biblical education and worship, Christian fellowship, and avenues of service for today's youth in a safe, loving, Christ-centered environment.
Each year we host 8 weeks of camp during the Summer season for students of all ages. These weeks consist of approximately 450 students coming in contact with the life story of Jesus. The gospel is heard. Decisions are made. Lives are changed forever; they are changed for eternity.
Our mission is to continue spreading the Gospel to students. Not only are students hearing the story of Jesus at West Central but they are taking it to the ends of the Earth as well through mission trips, life commitments, and through the discipling of others.
Community Services League Oak Grove
We support our local Community Services League because they provide immediate assistance to those in need in our community including food, clothes, financial assistance, and necessary supplies. They also give long-term support to help lift people out of patterns of poverty.
During Christmas time, we buy presents for the children of the families supported by CSL
Narcotics Anonymous meets at the church on Thursday at 7 pm and Sunday at 4 pm
Meals on Wheels
We deliver Meals on Wheels through the Oak Grove Senior Center's weekly rotation. The meals are delivered to the disabled and elderly during lunch time during the week.
Group Mission Trips
We send a group from our church yearly on a mission trip through Group Mission Trips. Youth and Adults are invited to attend. The past few years we have gone to Colorado, West Virginia, and Georgia.
Operation Christmas Child
Every Christmas season, we pack gift boxes to be distributed throughout the world alongside pastors and community leaders sharing the Gospel.
Salvation Army Bell Ringing
Oak Grove has a great relationship with the Salvation Army. The churches and community provide all the volunteers to keep the money raised here in our city, including rent and utility assistance.
During the Christmas season, we volunteer time for bell ringing.
