There is room at the table for you and your family regardless of your church background. Oakwood is a church where you can know you are welcome. Come to worship with us any Sunday morning at 9:30 a.m. We hope to see you soon.

Growing the Kingdom:

Oakwood's public school outreach is highlighted in this video....and in this article in the Interpreter Magazine of the United Methodist Church July/August 2015 issue; outreach that brings joy and serves other's in Christ's name.

Melanie Gordon, Discipleship Ministries
Oakwood was honored by the Discipleship Ministries Agency of the United Methodist Church on the first night of the 2015 MN Annual Conference. Melanie Gordon of Discipleship Ministries presented Council Chair Kevin Blank and Pastor Ric Jacobsen with the first annual 'ONE MATTERS' Award for Oakwood's significant work of making disciples of Jesus for the transformation of the world; increasing baptisms and professions of faith.
Our outreach to school children was recently highlighted on the UMC Minnesota Conference website as an inspiration to other churches. The MN Conference has shared photos of this project on their Facebook page and hosted our Evangelism Committee at the Annual MN Conference in May. We shared how others could start their own school partnerships in their own communities at the '50 Ways To Love Your Neighbor Mission Fair'.
