2020-2021 Theme Verse

“Hear, O Israel: The Lord is our God, the Lord alone. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.”

Deuteronomy 6:4-5 NRSV

Chapel

Students in grades 6-12 attend chapel daily at our North Campus. Our chapel services focus on relevant content for our students from a wide variety of sources including student speakers, faculty and staff, worship teams, traveling speakers, area pastors, and youth directors. Services 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. 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.
