At Oak View, we have two identical worship services.

Our worship services are designed to be exciting, engaging, reflective, and life-altering experiences. Our pastor, Dr. Jim Gerlach, through sermons which are both practical and thought-provoking, strives to lead our church to become more like Christ in our daily lives.
Music also plays a vital role in the worship services at Oak View. Our music serves as a tool through which our spirits are lifted in worship to God. Stylistically, we believe in a blended worship that includes something for all ages and preferences.
You'll find first-class programs for your children from birth–5th Grade. Our Nursery and Preschool area, located just to the north from the Worship Center, offers a warm, colorful and caring environment for your precious ones, with rooms designed for each stage of development. You will find it to be an amazing place that will captivate your child’s heart and imagination. Your child will experience crafts, Bible stories, music, and group interaction.
Your children, from 1st–5th Grade, will be at home in the Children's Building, built just for them. Your girls and boys will experience church like never before, created to present God's truth in fun and innovative ways. They won't want to miss a single week.
You are welcome at Oak View just as you are. We have members in coat and tie, members in jeans and t-shirt, and everywhere in between. We meet to worship the Lord and fellowship with other believers. We believe that it’s the attitude of your heart that matters to God rather than your physical appearance.
