Relationships—with God, our city, and each other—are at the center of who we are. While relationships happen every day in homes, offices, and around town, gathering together gives Oak Life the opportunity to focus, strengthening roots and spreading branches.
Our Sunday gathering is a little nontraditional and decidedly relaxed. We usually have a time of singing, creativity, conversation, and reflection on God and the Bible. Anyone is welcome (yes, we mean ANYONE)! Feel free to come as you are, and bring a few friends. Each Sunday may be a little different, but our hope is that we’ll meet you on your journey, wherever that happens to be. Children are welcome to join in the service.
10AM at The New Parkway Theater
472 24th Street, Oakland CA 94612
There’s plenty of bike parking, so consider riding over! If you’re driving, free parking on Sundays can be found along the street. We love being a part of The New Parkway community and supporting what they do in Oakland (be sure to see all your movies there)!
During the week we have multiple life groups that meet to build deeper relationships and spur one another on towards Jesus. These groups run on a 10ish week schedule so feel free to check one out or move on as needed! If you'd like to visit out one of the groups or are have a question, feel free to email the group leader. Also- if you'd like to start a group/gathering, let us know!
Cups & Couches
This is a periodic gathering where everyone is invited to to bring a beverage and sit on a couch as we have a healthy discussion on important topics. Cups & Couches gatherings are a safe space for questions, doubts, and opinions as long as we maintain "grace in all things". Cups & Couches usually happens about once a month. Email us for more info: firstname.lastname@example.org
Casual (but consistent) Hang-outs
Thinking about going to an Oakland event or meetup? Someone from Oak Life is probably headed there, too. We won’t list all the block-parties, festivals, or libraries we frequent, but here are a few places where you can find us and say hello. Email Chris if you need the info.
Sunday After Church: Almost every week some of us hang out for Brunch/Lunch somewhere in Oakland. Come hang!
