Teen Camp

Do the words teenager and puberty strike fear in your heart? Us too! Nevertheless, we know these years are a perfect age for God to shape hearts, minds, and lives. We're making the most of every moment this summer with the guys and girls that are the Oak Tree Teen Family. We're most excited about our first ever SUMMER CAMP.  In June, we're headed to Camp Lee in Anniston for 3 days. From sun up to the wee hours, we'll be connecting with God and each other as we build relationships through His word, trust and play. This is the first camp experience for our kids. We could use your help readying them for camp. How can God provide through you, your family or small group? Click the link to see our packing list below. Thanks for making us HAPPY CAMPERS

Bible Club Volunteer Training

Oak Tree is hosting a volunteer training session and fellowship gathering at The Treehouse for its current volunteers and those interested in serving as volunteers at the Bible Club.  We’d love to invite YOU to serve in the Village! If you've never visited before, sign up here!

Are your mind and heart turned toward acting justly, loving mercy, and walking humbly with God through lifting up the oppressed held captive through poverty? Join like-minded Christ followers at Oak Tree Ministries. We labor together with the 2500+ people of the Marks Village housing project in Gate City. We address physical, psychological and spiritual needs through Gospel-centered ministries on paths of relationship, restoration, relief and rehabilitation. The Bible Club is the ministry's first and largest initiative engaging 100+ students with over 30 community volunteers joining the effort. Volunteers build relationships and disciple the kids through free play, worship, large and small group study of the Word, prayer, and a meal. No experience needed, just a heart to obey the Lord and make disciples among His people. If you’re  thinking of jumping in on Sunday afternoons with Bible Club, sign up to come visit!
