2018-2019 THEME VERSE

“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7


At the north campus, Oak Grove has chapel every day during the school day. Our chapel services focus on relevant content for our students from a wide variety of sources including student speakers, faculty and staff, worship teams, area pastors and youth directors, and traveling speakers. Our chapels are open to the public, and occasionally streamed on the Oak Grove Facebook page. To see the time and theme of our next service, click here! 

At the south campus, our Early Learning Center and Elementary students have chapel weekly on Tuesdays at 8:30am. Parents are welcome to attend. Once a month, students take part in Grover Groups during their regularly scheduled chapel time to focus on community, teamwork, and relationship building across grades.

Camp House: Oak Grove High School Retreat

We call Camp House “the best place on earth.” Our summer retreat is five days of laughter and freedom with Campus Ministry leaders and friends, four nights of worship and purpose-driven teaching, and side trips to our favorite spots along Lake Superior and Duluth. There’s nothing like it!

We encourage you to start fundraising early for Campus Ministry trips at Oak Grove. We frequently offer mission trips, retreats, and day trips that can all be funded through Oak Grove fundraising. As opportunities come up, we’ll post them here

Check out the Oak Grove Prayer Wall Link on the bottom of this page.

Four things let us ever keep in mind:
God hears prayer,
God heeds prayer,
God answers prayer,
and God delivers by prayer.  

We are extremely happy and excited to have the ability to share praises and concerns through prayer. The Oak Grove Prayer Wall gives everyone the opportunity to share a prayer request with the community. Scroll down to the bottom left hand side of this page and click on the Prayer Wall link and it will take you to a window where you can enter a prayer request. Your prayer will be posted and you will be able to see how many people have prayed specifically for you. This should be a wonderful way for the Grover family to share praises and concerns no matter where they live. The Prayer Wall has been designed with students, faculty, staff, alumni, donors and friends of Oak Grove in mind.

Please allow us the privilege to pray for you!
