Church Description *

Blue Oaks Church was planted in 2012 with the mission and purpose of leading those in their community into Christ-centered living. Wherever people may be in their spiritual journey, the heart of this church is to see you experience the power of God’s love and grace, to grow in your faith through communities of small groups and to use your God-given skills and passions to meet the real needs of the people in the Tri-Valley and across the world.

Weekend gatherings feature dynamic worship and solid Bible teaching with the goal of leading people towards practical life application and a personal pursuit of growing deeper in their faith and knowledge of the Word. Currently, Blue Oaks offers 3 identically programmed weekend gatherings on Sunday mornings. Congregational worship music predominately band-driven featuring high energy leadership and engaging music in the style of Elevation, Passion, and Hillsong. The overall purpose and feel of the weekend gatherings is to engage the believer in Jesus-centered worship while providing the unbeliever a venue in which they are exposed to the truth of God’s love and grace through the power of His Word and genuine community with others. The environment is dynamic, compelling, and authentic.
