Every new year, people make resolutions and many of them relate to our physical condition. Well, imagine that we only worked out once a week for one hour and than we weren’t really concerned about our physical condition the rest of the week. We wouldn’t see good results if this were the case, would we? It takes intention and effort to get into better shape physically.
Similarly, we cannot attend church once a week and expect to have a vibrant, growing relationship with God and others. So, at Oak Grove, we have designed a process to help people grow in their faith. It is intentional and requires time and effort. But it is worth it!
We desire for every person at Oak Grove to go through this process. We illustrate the process using a baseball diamond. We hope that you will “go around the bases” during your time at Oak Grove.
