Welcome to Oakhurst!

We’re a multicultural, Biblically-based, forward-thinking, Jesus-centered congregation. Whatever your thoughts on “church” are, our life together will touch you in ways that you have not yet imagined.

Regular Sunday Schedule
Sunday School: 10:00
Worship: 11:00

Services usually last 90 minutes.

Worship at Oakhurst is a celebration! Casual, robust, and loving, services joyfully blend traditions from cultures across the globe. Sermons are uplifting, sometimes challenging, and always reassuring: We are children of God! The congregation enjoys fellowship and light refreshments in the Fellowship Hall after the service.

Attire tends toward the casual but many prefer traditional “Sunday clothes.” You’ll find everything from jeans and shorts to suits and dresses. Wear what makes you feel comfortable.
