Oakwood's Spiritual Waypoints

Posted by Joseph Mohr on

Waypoints and weekly ministries at Oakwood are intentionally designed to work in alignment, each contributing toward the spiritual growth of your children and your family. A Waypoint is simply a specific environment where we engage the family regarding important topics of faith development.  They are scheduled from 10:30am-Noon on Sunday mornings throughout the year. Each waypoint is only $5/family.

Waypoints are God-dependent strategic stops along your journey through parenting that are designed to "energize the next generation" to love God, love others and make disciples! 

Spiritual Legacy

This Waypoint is primarily for new parents, but any parent or grandparent who desires to pass on a Spiritual Legacy to the next generation is welcome to come. You will learn about some of the most important decisions you could ever make for the ones you love the most. We encourage participation in this Waypoint as a step in the journey for Child Dedication


Faith Steps

Every family has certain habits that effect the way they live. At this Waypoint, families will learn about and practice principles that if regularly implemented will shape the future of their family.

This Waypoint will give parents the opportunity to clearly present the Gospel to their kids. We then will have the opportunity to talk together about Believer’s Baptism and the taking of the Lord’s Supper.

We are all well aware of the huge issues facing our students these days. And some of you are looking to the church to help you know how to respond in a biblically informed way. Each pillar is intentionally chosen to inform you, as well as better prepare you, to help your friends and family navigate this ever-changing world. This way point is designed for families with high school students.

Each fall we gather all the high school seniors and their parents in order to look back at their spiritual journey so far, as well as spend some time looking forward.  We will explore how each senior could make this the BEST year yet!


Along life's journey, our children will move from one phase to another. These are shifts in their physical, social and spiritual development. The Shift Waypoint is designed for you to learn how the church and the family can continue to partner together through each of life's Shifts. At Oakwood, Shift in programming will occur in 1st, 5th, 7th and 9th grades. Each Shift is offered near the end of the spring semester.
