Bible Reading experience

Studying God's Word together


Read Along with Us

At the beginning of the year for the past several years, the Oakwood church body has been reading parts of the Bible together. We've read through the entire bible as well as our Statement of Faith. 

In January 2022, we're starting a new bible reading experience using the New Living Translation (their reading Bibles are called Immerse). The first book is called Messiah and contains the whole New Testament. We'll be reading through the four Gospels.

Weeks of January 23 & 30: Gospel of Matthew
Weeks of February 6 & 13: Gospel of Mark
Weeks of February 20 & 27: Gospel of Luke
Weeks of March 6 & 13: Gospel of John

Join a Group

This is a great time to connect with a group at Oakwood! Let's encounter Jesus together and discover how to grow as His disciples. Join us as we pursue transformation, in community, on mission.

The Whole Family Can Participate!
Oakwood students: We're taking a look at the Gospels along with the rest of Oakwood Church! Join us each Sunday for Scripture reading, discussion, small groups, and growing in our knowledge of Jesus. We start on Jan. 23 at 9 a.m.
Kids will be diving deeply into the Gospels too in fun and interactive ways!
Parents, we’ll provide a Family Guide with devotional readings and activities you can do together each week. 
For all ages, we’ll share an Immerse: Messiah Discovery Story Set that you can pair with the Discovery Questions to saturate yourself in exciting episodes from the Gospels with friends or family, seeking to understand, apply, and share God’s Word together!

Buy Your Bible

You'll want to purchase an Immerse: Messiah version of the Bible to read along with us during worship experiences and in your group! The best place we've found to purchase Immerse: Messiah is on Amazon (and there have even been sales during holiday promotions!). Or purchase a large-print version here.
