We are faithful community Oak Grove

Welcome to the community.

A welcome letter from Pastor Stephen Johnson


Thank you for checking us out! Welcome to Oak Grove Church of God! Websites are a wonderful way of finding out what you want to know. We are glad you want to know about us, and we certainly want to know you.

The Churches of God began in the US among German immigrants in Pennsylvania. As the country and settlements spread so did the church. As settlers came to Indiana so did ministers and members who began churches. Oak Grove Church is one of the first churches in Whitley County.

Our church and culture has changed but our values have not. Oak Grove believes in the Bible and passionate worship. We believe in a conversion experience and growing in grace and holiness. We believe in sharing our faith. We believe in strong families. We believe in missions. We believe in ministry to every generation. These beliefs drive what we do and how we spend our money as we give.

Hello All!

We had a great Advent! Now as hard as it seems to believe we are progressing toward Resurrection Sunday. We are having Winter as well! If you wonder if will have services go to our FB page (the official oak grove church of God face book page). It should tell you. If you do not have FB then go to WBCL.org. Go to the homepage and click on "On Air" and scroll down to "weather-cancellations and delays and click.

 It seems that Covid-19 has flared up again in our community. People have been asking what we are doing in response. We believe our people will be responsible. Masks are optional and available. Social distancing is possible because we have 2 services and a roomy sanctuary. We are doing as much during Advent as we feel is safe.

Our children's ministries are conducted at the 10:30 service. If you do not have young children, I encourage you to come to our 9 o'clock service. It is identical in format to 10:30. There is a smaller attendance and to spread people out would be helpful. Having 2 services helps us to spread people out a little bit.

We have 4 good options for you to choose from for worship during a difficult time like this. We have 2  in person services. On this website there is a audio sermon from the first service- sermon only. At 10:30 we have a face Book live service carried live. It is then recorded and you can watch it anytime, yet still be worshipping with others. If you have any questions please call Pastor Steve at 260-229-9381.

 We are strategizing about the best ways to disciple people in this Covid and hopefully Post Covid world. We will be offering ways to know and apply the Bible for all ages. We also want to influence our community for good through various ministries. Your input is desired as well. We have worship, nursery, children's, sports (Basket Ball), playground, teaching ,men's and women's discipleship, small groups, youth, and outreach (homeless) ministries, to become involved in. We also work with community groups such as BABE and the HOPE Center, Boomerang Backpacks and other ministries in Columbia City and Whitley County. We can connect you with any of these. You are needed here at Oak Grove and in our community.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

1 Corinthians 13:4-7
