Get Connected. Go Deeper.

We want to provide an opportunity for all students to get connected and have a community of fellow believers. On Sunday mornings, we offer a time for students to dig in deeper to God's word. Starting at 9 am on Sunday mornings, students will be able to hear an overview of the week's lesson from Bro. Brad. After that, students will break off into groups based on their age and gender, led by two of our Student team leaders. 7th & 8th Grade guys will be in room S-103. On Sunday night at 5 pm, students will have the opportunity to meet in the Student Building for a time of fun and discipleship. On Wednesday nights at 5 pm, middle school and high school students will join for a time of food & fellowship, followed by a time of worship and a message from Bro. Brad.

Billy Taylor

Mr. Billy has been teaching Sunday school for our student ministry for over 15 years!
"God moved my family and I to Oakland in 1996. When we moved, I was  concerned about moving to such a large church that I would not get to serve like I had at our previous church. I grew from a child to adulthood there, and it was there I learned how to serve. While I served in several different ways, my favorite was when I was asked to teach a Jr High Sunday school class. I grew to love them, and I was able to keep teaching this age group for over 10 years until the Lord moved us to Oakland. It was a hard thing to leave those young people when we moved, and it was also hard to not be teaching once we settled in at Oakland. So, I prayed for another opportunity to teach and after a year or so, an opportunity opened to teach a high school class. I was thankful for the opportunity to serve in that role, but a year or so later gladly accepted when offered the opportunity to teach a Jr. High class. I have been truly blessed to get to continue teaching them ever since that time.
I’m sure I have learned more than I’ve taught over the years but have enjoyed the opportunity to serve in this role. One of the blessings I receive the longer I get to teach is to have boys in my class whose dads I also had in class. Hopefully, they pass along good memories. I don’t know how much longer I’ll get to teach, but I pray that as long as I can I will remain flexible and see the ways God provides to work around the obstacles the devil sets before us and the students to prevent us all from growing to be Godly men
