Oakwood Cares is a ministry of Oakwood Community Church that exists to bless and share God’s love with people in our church and local community by meeting real needs through acts of service, generosity and compassion. In recent years we have distributed thousands of dollars to help families with needs like medical bills, heat for their homes, vehicle or home repairs, or other types of emergency assistance. Our desire is to bless people both financially and spiritually, providing hope and real help during difficult times.
This ministry started as a Christmas-only initiative in 2011, but has grown into an ongoing ministry that has impacted many families in our community. The Deacons of the church oversee the ministry in partnership with the local outreach team. When you nominate someone for possible help from Oakwood Cares, the Deacons assign a person from these teams to contact you and the person(s) nominated to learn more about the need. The team then follows a clear process to prayerfully evaluate and make decisions about how we might be able to help.
