Grow

Since we never actually “arrive” in our faith while on this earth, we provide a variety of ways for you to grow in your spiritual maturity through the study and application of God’s Word.

Community Groups

We understand the importance of deeper relationships. Our community groups are designed to give individuals and couples a place to foster deeper relationships with those in the church.

If you are interested or have any questions you can call Oak Park’s Ministry Assistant Terry Broady at 812.283.9400 or e-mail her at terry.broady@oakparkbaptist.com who will direct you to one of Oak Park’s pastors.  You can also e-mail any one of our our community group leaders.  Currently, we have eight community groups that meet throughout the week and at various times.

Sunday School

Sunday School starts at 9:45 every Sunday morning. Consider becoming part of a class today and see how God uses it to help you grow in your faith.

Through Sunday School, we hope and pray that genuine Christ-centered relationships are established, that biblical fellowship is fostered and that you will grow to be the man or woman that God has called you to be in His Word.

We have classes for children, middle and high school students, college-aged students, couples classes (young, median and senior adult), as well as senior adult men and women – so whatever your stage in life, we have a class for you!

Preschool & Children

Here at Oak Park we consider our children as precious gifts from God. To be good stewards of these precious gifts we know we must pass on the faith to them.

We seek to do this in a variety of ways:

Sunday School:  We have Sunday School classes designed specifically for our preschool and children.

AWANA: Wednesday night ministry for children ages 3 to 5th grade. In this ministry your child will memorize Bible verses as well as learn the great stories found within God’s Word.

Vacation Bible School: Each year we offer this week long event that focuses on teaching our children the Bible and its principles. Through this time we hope to engage our children with the gospel and see them trust in Christ and grow in their faith.

Children’s Camp: During the summer we take our children away for 3 or 4 days to a Christian Camp where they enjoy activities, Bible lessons, and have time to build relationships with their friends, as well as their pastors.

 

Students

Students are not the future of the church, they are part of the church today! We believe that our students are faced with great challenges in our times. The church and the family must work together to help raise a generation that treasures Jesus Christ above all things.

To do this we have several options.

Sunday School: Our high school and middle school students meet separately at 9:45 for Sunday School, where they spend time working through the Bible.

Wednesday Night Service: Each Wednesday night, our students (both Middle School and High School) gather at 6:00 in the Student Room. Here they enjoy fellowship, activities and engaging teaching from the Bible.

Student Camp: During the summer our students spend 5 or 6 days away with Pastor Chase at a Christian Camp. At camp, the students build relationships, are challenged by camp speakers and are encouraged in their faith.

Discipleship Now (DNOW): We take several weekends throughout the year to focus on intensive discipleship to address hot topics that our students are facing.
