WHITE OAK WORSHIP CENTER MINISTRIES
There is a place for you here.
Church isn’t just another box to check off on your to do list, it’s a place of life, renewal and hope – restoring the world. In authentic church community, there is true friendship, grace, life-long learning and making a difference. At White Oak, we are an authentic, difference-making community. In addition, you’ll be given practical knowledge of the Word and specific steps for growth to help you on your journey with God.
 
Our ministries provide something for everyone. At any and every stage of life there is a place to connect in community with one another, grow together in faith and serve each other in love. Whether you’re new or have been attending our services for years, we challenge you to get involved and experience life together.

We provide a safe, fun and nurturing Christian environment for infants and toddlers ages birth to 2 years. We offer this service for church members, visitors and the Blairs community during the time that parents and guardians attend worship and other church-sponsored programs or events.

Each adult caregiver serving in our nursery ministry must first submit an application and receive a thorough background check through a national screening service before being allowed to serve. Caregivers will safely engage and interact with your child during their time in the nursery. Children will be promoted to the next level as appropriate throughout the year.

White Oak Worship Kids In Divine Service (WOW KIDS) is a ministry for ages 4 – 12. They meet during the 11 a.m. service on Sundays. The younger children, ages 4 & 5, have their own class. Ages 6 – 12 meet for KIDS Church where they have praise and worship and a message.
 
The last Sunday of each month is Family Day. On these Sundays, the ages 4 – 5 class meets, but the children ages 6 and older enjoy worship with their families in the main sanctuary.
 
Our WOW KIDS teaching staff is comprised of dedicated, caring people, many of whom have been working with children for years. We welcome all children who would like to participate!

For those not involved in Royal Rangers or Mpact Girls, Pastor Daniel has a discipleship class on Wednesday nights at 7:15 open to all teens ages 13 – 18.

WOWC Youth also has a youth praise team which leads worship in the sanctuary on Wednesday nights before Bible Study. For more information about WOWC Youth Ministries or if you are interested in volunteering to assist with this ministry, e-mail Pastor Daniel by clicking HERE.

The GEMS Senior Ministry (God’s Effective Matured Saints) is for those who are 55 and over.
 
Our purpose is to encourage fellow seniors in their devotional lives and in the use of their natural and spiritual gifts to further the work of Jesus Christ. In all activities that we plan, we want to exalt the name of Jesus Christ. It is our goal that through this ministry we will encourage senior citizens to use their gifts and talents for the Lord, and in turn enhance our service to the church and community. Some seniors who attend may have “retired,” but this ministry helps to keep them “refired” in fellowship and activity!
 
The GEMS meet for activities each month. These activities include fellowship, dinners, trips and fund raisers. We have all of our planned activities listed on our website calendar here. It is our prayer that each senior citizen at WOWC will attend each month. Invite someone to come with you and enjoy a time of uplifting fellowship and fun!
Nursing Home Ministry
To spread the love and message of Jesus Christ in the nursing home environment, providing support and encouragement by regular visits by caring Christians. To provide encouragement and support to those individuals, organized ministries, chaplains, activities directors, and staff members serving Christ in the nursing home environment. 
 
The Root Problem…The Root Solution
At its core, crime is a moral and spiritual problem. When people have distorted values and attitudes, they make poor moral choices that can cause harm and destruction. Since the core problem is moral and spiritual, the core solution must also be moral and spiritual. Authentic and lasting change must take place from the inside out—beginning with a reconciled relationship with God through Jesus Christ. Then, as people learn more about the truth and power of Christ, they start to think in a new way, act in a new way, and relate to others in a new way. This is the goal of our prison ministry.
 
 
Psalm 150:1-6  “Praise the Lord!  Praise God in His sanctuary; praise Him in His mighty firmament!  Praise Him for His mighty deeds; praise Him for His surpassing greatness!  Praise Him with trumpet sound; praise him with lute and harp!  Praise Him with the tambourine and dance; praise Him with stringed instruments and organs.  Praise Him with the clanging cymbals; praise Him with loud clashing cymbals!  Let everything that has breath, praise the Lord.  Praise ye the Lord!
 It is our desire to praise and worship our Savior, Jesus Christ through song, music and dance. It is the way that we express our love and gratitude toward our Lord! Many scriptures support the praise and worship of the Lord.
 
This scripture and many others clearly indicate that we should praise and worship the Lord with music, instruments and dance. These are all biblical expressions of worship.  

Every Sunday morning, we have two worship services: 

Our traditional service starts at 8:30 a.m. In the traditional service we worship the Lord with the time-honored hymns of the faith and some classic praise and worship selections.
 
 
Our contemporary service starts at 11 a.m. In our contemporary service we worship the Lord with current and up-to-date musical selections that are direct and relevant to our present generation. In our 11 a.m. service we also have a choir and full band which ministers in song each Sunday.
 
Youth Praise Team On Wednesday nights at 7:00 p.m. before Bible Study begins, the WOWC Youth Praise Team leads praise and worship in the sanctuary.
 
The Youth Praise Team is open to youth and young adults ages 12 – 25. They practice on Wednesday nights from 6:00 – 6:45. If you are within that age group and like to sing or play an instrument…they want you!  For more information, please contact our youth pastor, Daniel Irving.
 
Nuestra visión es tener un lugar donde los hispanos de Danville, VA  y de los alrededores puedan reunirse para aprender, estudiar y crecer espiritualmente en su propio idioma. También, nuestra visión es aprender de Cristo y de Su regreso por Su iglesia para estar preparados a encontrarnos con Él. Nuestro deseo es que White Oak Centro de Alabanza sea un lugar de avivamiento a nivel personal para que todos vivamos cerca de Cristo.
 
Nuestros servicios son tiempos de refrescamiento espiritual donde el Espíritu Santo de Dios es bienvenido a fluir para enseñar, redarguir, animar y edificar. Son tiempos de compañerismo y convivio entre otros hispanos del área.
 
Tenemos muchas oportunidades para los niños. Ellos se reúnen con los niños de White Oak Worship para tener alabanza y estudios a su nivel. Estos son en inglés. Los adultos tienen sus servicios en español.
Tenemos una alabanza viva donde nos gozamos y nos divertimos en la presencia del Señor. Ejercemos la libertad que tenemos en Cristo Jesús.
 
 
 
Join us every Sunday morning at 10 a.m. for Sunday Discipleship Hour. It is our desire to give each person the spiritual armor they need to become mature Christians who love God and walk in victory!
