At Live Oak we believe in the transformational power of Christ and community and we want to be a place where those are both experienced! Your starting point will likely be a Sunday service, but we hope that is merely a front door to personal spiritual growth, a deepening love for God, and to meaningful relationships with others!
Our website tells our story so we hope you’ll spend some time with it. You should be able to find anything you are looking for, to explore church life, on the main navigation bar up top!

Live Oak is an authentic group of people who love God and love others…
IF YOU ARE NEW WITH US, PLANNING TO WORSHIP ONLINE OR IN-PERSON
WE ARE GLAD YOU ARE HERE!
We are ORDINARY PEOPLE with problems and sins seeking an amazing God TOGETHER.
Live Oak is a CASUAL & COMFORTABLE atmosphere – we hope you will feel at ease.
You’ll meet FRIENDLY PEOPLE – they will help you find your way around but won’t invade your space.
You’ll experience MEANINGFUL WORSHIP in a creative, contemporary environment.
Our Pastors teach MESSAGES that make sense – Biblical teaching and real help for everyday life.
You’ll find a MULTIGENERATIONAL WORSHIP SETTING – Our student ministry meets on Wednesdays and our College Ministry meets on Tuesdays, which means teens and young adults join us in our main worship on Sundays…and we LOVE it!
You really can wear what you want. The majority of Live Oakers wear casual clothes. Right now we encourage you wear a mask too, although they are not required for anyone but staff and off-stage volunteers.
You don’t have to worry about being pointed out as “new” during the service, but chances are you will be greeted by many, because Live Oak is a friendly place and we love new faces.
During the teaching portion of our services, our Pastors show scripture on the side screens. You can still bring your Bible or pull up your online Bible, too. If you need a Bible, we have free ones in our foyer at Guest Central. We provide Bible Reading Plans that go with our Sunday series, because we want to help you engage God’s Word on your own.
You can complete a CONNECTION CARD to let us know about you and to ask for specific information.

>On Sunday mornings, teens are invited to our main services…there is great value in inter-generational worship. Also, MANY of our teens serve on Sundays which allows them to learn about their unique gifting and use their gifting to serve others, because we believe there is no age limit to a life that can be used by God!
