2023-2024 Theme Verse

“For the Lord your God is living among you. He is a mighty savior. He will take delight in you with gladness.

With His love, He will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.”

Zephaniah 3:17 (NLT)


Students in grades 6-12 take part in chapel daily at our North Campus. Our chapel services focus on relevant content for our students from a wide variety of sources including student speakers, faculty and staff, worship teams, traveling speakers, area pastors, and youth directors.

At the South Campus, our Early Learning Center and Elementary students have chapel weekly on Tuesdays. Once a month, students take part in Grover Groups during their regularly scheduled chapel time to focus on community, teamwork, and relationship building across grades.

Campus Ministry Trips & Retreats


We encourage you to start fundraising early for Campus Ministry trips at Oak Grove. We frequently offer mission trips, retreats, and day trips that can all be funded through Oak Grove fundraising. As opportunities come up, we’ll post them here.
