Oak Grove Missionary Baptist Church

With its grand glazing and modern day conveniences, the church has come a long way from the humble beginnings of that first gathering of freed slaves in the grove of Oak trees for which the church is named. The new structure boasts a seating capacity in the Sanctuary at over 1200 worshippers. The complex includes a Fellowship hall that can seat more than 350 hungry members and guests at tables. It has a choir & music room, a sound control room and a baptismal. The church is the part of a grander master plan that includes a chapel, family life center, so that members can focus on their physical well-being as well as their spiritual well-being, additional offices and residences for senior citizens.
