Oakville United Methodist Church

April 10, 2014

The Oakville United Methodist Church uses an acrostic of it’s name to remember how God has called them into mission.

O: Outpouring of Love

A: All are Welcome

K: Kindness in heart and voice

V: Valiant and Courageous in actions

I: Integrity to the Word of God

L: Love Your Neighbor

L: Listen to God’s message through prophets

E: Everyone is a minister one to the other

U: United by Christ’s call to Follow Him

M: Methodical and spontaneous in vision

C: Church family includes the stranger and the alien, the neighbor and friend.

We all come to give and to receive God’s Gift of Eternity through His Son, Jesus, our Lord and Savior.

The congregation lives into its vision for ministry by supporting a Kid’s Bible Club, touching the lives of about 30 children every Wednesday from 3:30 to 8 p.m. They also work with an average of 17 youth that meet each week for nurturing in the faith.

They have a long-time commitment to mission giving, which remains strong today. This spirit of giving was put to the test especially after the very serious flooding they experienced in 2008. Church members were very active in responding to the needs of the community throughout the ordeal.
