Oakland First United Methodist Church is an open and welcoming small church. We have street level access on the east side of our building. You will be greeted warmly by our friendly folks who seek a deeper and fuller relationship with Christ.
We are housed in a white frame building on the corner. Our worship style is traditional with a mix of new and contemporary songs. We project the song words onto a screen. Following worship you will be treated to a time of fellowship in the back of the sanctuary while your children and youth take part in our excellent Christian Education program.
