“Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, The LORD is one. You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.”
-Deuteronomy 6: 4-9
What a tremendous call this is to fathers and families. At Oakridge we love families! We want to come alongside and help you in any way we can to answer the tremendous call, responsibility, and opportunity to share these life-changing truths with your children and youth. While we realize that there is no ministry that can take the place of fathers and mothers, this is a task that cannot be done without the support of a loving, Christian community.
Our hope therefore, is that our youth and family ministries will be woven into our overall ministries as a body, and will spark a passion for Christ in the lives of our parents, and reinforce those values and truths in the lives of our youth.
