Oak Hills is so blessed to have such a dedicated and hard working worship team. Every Sunday we are privileged to experience beautiful music, offered by the choir, thanks to the expertise of Choir Director Gary Millé. Linda Kranovich, shares her beautiful organ and piano accompaniment, supporting our choir at the 11:00 service.
Tanya Stojanović, our Worship Director, leads and coaches our praise team each week, expertly providing inspiring music of exceptional quality for the 9:30 service. We have enjoyed an encouraging year in 2016 for the Praise Team. It’s always delightful to welcome new people to our group – so, we welcome Kim Nelson, Kevin Gates and Aleksandar Stojanović!
It is always so exciting when our prayers are answered! We start each rehearsal with prayers and praise to our loving God, and He has been so faithful to each of us this year! No matter what hardships each of us have experienced, our Heavenly Father has brought us through them. We are truly blessed! We have added drums and bass guitar to our band, thanks to Scott Searles and Kevin Gates. We are looking forward to doing more specials as a band for 2017.
Behind the scenes is an equally dedicated group, working to ensure each worship service is as meaningful as possible. Thank you to the many Elders who volunteered to serve communion throughout the year. Janet and Tom Harney prepare communion elements, while Barbara Garrett and Judy Anderson help take care of the clean up.
Thanks also to Don Gissel who leads a team in providing communion for the homebound. Tom Miller and Valerie Brumbelow arrange the schedule for worship leaders assisting the Pastor each week. Gretchen Buskirk organizes the ushers’ schedule and trains new participants. Joan North provides beautiful flower arrangements to enhance your worship experience.
We are particularly blessed with our Pastor, Jeremy Sanderson, who brings energy and enthusiasm to each service; newly ordained Associate Pastor for Christian Education (Stated Supply) Christy Polk’s ministry to children and youth; and with Parish Associate Stasia Van Buskirk who leads the prayer time each Sunday.
Special thanks to Wade Van Buskirk, and his team of helpers, for operating our media each week. Thank you, to our Church Family for singing out and joining us with your joyous praise! And thank you to our King of kings and Lord of all lords, Jesus Christ! Amen!
We welcome you to worship services on Sunday mornings. We look forward to meeting you. Please stay after service for coffee and a snack.
Between Memorial Day and Labor Day we have one blended service. During the summer weeks our families mix and blend as many of us come and go with visits to extended family and take time away from home.
Our first service features contemporary music with our Praise Team of instrumentalists and singers providing music and leading us in song.
Our second worship service is led by our talented Choir Director accompanied by organ, piano and our choir members who provide traditional music and lead us in hymns.
