Connecting with people in large groups can be somewhat difficult. Community Groups are designed for you to connect with other people on a more personal level and do life together. Groups are typically 10-15 people, meeting in people’s homes or the church office throughout the week. This is an opportunity for you not only to grow relationships with other people, but a chance for you to grow deeper in your faith through discipleship. In addition to Community Groups, we also offer Bible study and fellowship opportunities through Men’s and Women’s ministries.
All throughout school we have easy access to be a part of teams, groups or organizations of other men. We believe it is good and healthy to continue those relationships into our adulthood, especially relationships with other Godly men. We typically meet the second and 4th Mondays of each month to hang out, eat, learn more about Biblical manhood and encourage each other to become more Godly men. Fight Club meets on the second & fourth Monday of each month, 6:00pm at our office building.
Throughout Scripture we see that women have a strong role in God’s story. We offer Ladies’ Bible Studies, Exhale events (Ladies’ Night Out, classes, events) and Ladies’ Book Club. No matter what season of life you are in, all ladies love some quality “girl time.” What better way than to spend that time with other women learning more about who God has called them to be.
We believe in family at Community Oxford. We want to work alongside parents to give their children Biblical knowledge of who God truly is. Children are the next generation of our church, so we want to do everything we can to lead them into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. We offer classes for children (infants through 5th grade) during our Sunday morning services.
Mission Kids is our mid-week gathering for children (Kindergarten through 5th grade). Mission Kids meets on Wednesday nights at Lafayette Middle School (5:30-7:30pm) with dinner provided.
The Gospel Project for Kids is the curriculum that our teachers use in our Sunday morning classes. The aim of this curriculum is to teach children through the entirety of Scripture. Over a three-year period, children journey through the Word, from Genesis to Revelation.
The years between 6th and 12th grade are a crucial time in the life of a student. There are so many decisions made within these years that form their personalities and character. Our ministry is centered around John 17:3 which says, “And this is eternal life, that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.” We want to lead students towards Jesus and help give them a Biblical worldview. CCO Students meets on Wednesday nights, 5:30-7:30pm at our church office.
Intermission is a time on Sunday mornings (10:15am in the LHS Library) set aside for our students (6th-12th grade) to gather, study God’s Word, and fellowship.
There’s a lot of work that goes in to making our Sunday mornings happen. Because we meet in a school, so many of our elements are portable. We have teams that help load-in and loud-out all of our equipment each week. We also have teams who help with greeting, parking, and making coffee. Sunday mornings do not happen without our volunteers. This is an easy, practical way for you to be involved and serve at Community.
We are a “church in a box” (that happens to be on wheels and pulled behind a truck). We set up and take down everything you see on Sunday mornings. It’s a lot of work, but it’s easier with more people. You don’t have to be the strongest person, just willing.
We believe everyone is welcome at church, and we want you to feel that way. From the moment you get out of your car we want you to feel welcomed. We have a whole team of people who greet people and help direct them where they need to go on Sunday mornings. If you are interested in serving on the Hospitality Team, let us know!
