Family Ministries


Family Ministries focuses on the family as a whole and on each individual that comprises the unit. Family Ministries is focused on strengthening the relationships between the individuals in the family — the relationship that connects husband and wife in marriage, parent and child in a unique parent-child bond, family to family in the community of faith and in the wider society.

Couples Ministries – Marriage is the first institution designed by God at Creation. God fashioned humankind as male and female in His own image; He instituted marriage, a covenant-based union of the two genders physically, emotionally, and spiritually, spoken of in Scripture as “one flesh.” God, the designer of marriage, has provided us with a plan for how marriage works best.

Divorce Care Ministry – The Oakwood University Church Divorce Care Ministry supports those who are hurting from the pain of divorce or separation.This confidential and caring ministry is there for those who need encouragement, prayer, and guidance in the midst of emotional distress.

Grief Recovery Ministry – The Oakwood University Church Grief Recovery Ministry is for those who have experienced the loss of a loved one. Grief Ministry features Biblically-based concepts to help in the midst of healing.

Singles Ministry – Whether you are a part of our larger church family or simply looking for a church home in the Huntsville Area, Single’s Ministry welcomes you!  Our goal is to reach, teach and nurture the singles of our church and community so that each individual will come to faith, Christian maturity, and service through interaction with God, His Word, and one another. Romans 1:12 best illustrates our purpose: “That is, that you and I may be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith”. Our fellowship, worship, Bible studies, and events are planned with your needs in mind. Your heart will be inspired, your life enriched, and your relationships strengthened, especially your relationship with the Lord.

All activities sponsored by SM are open.  You do not need to be a member of our church to participate. So we look forward to seeing you in the near future. Everything from retreats to small group activities are planned by our leadership team.
