Every week people come to Oakwood for information, encouragement, and assistance. Our goal is to provide a place of comfort, strength and support as we provide assistance and share the hope and love of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
We provide an array of care including:
- Assistance from Caring Missions/Deacon body
- Referrals to Professional Christian Counselors in the community
- Support groups through Celebrate Recovery
- Food vouchers through the Chattanooga Food Bank
- Assistance with furniture/household items through the Ministry of Hope
- Divorce Care
- Financial counseling through Financial Peace
- Pastoral Care
If you would like to speak to someone about receiving assistance, contact the church office to speak with a Care Ministry representative.
