Visiting a new church for the first time tends to be intimidating -- there’s a lot for visitors to figure out! We want Oakland's visitors to feel at home and at ease when they arrive. When you visit, you will experience great music, encouraging messages, friendly people and a relaxed atmosphere.
What’s the service like?
