The church’s first facility was on the corner of 9th and Oak Streets in Mayfield. The church met at that location from 1917 until 1950. The church moved into a wonderful and large facility on the corner of 7th and College Streets with the first service being February 5, 1950. After much hard work and monetary sacrifice, the church moved to the present location on 10 acres on the south side of Mayfield. Our first service was held on July 16, 2006. Payment on the present facility was completed in November of 2010. In March 2015, we completed a 4,100 square feet educational annex and the construction of two canopies. This new facility provides additional classroom space and a larger fellowship area. The church seeks to use their facilities to carry on the legacy of faith, service, and New Testament Christianity.
Seven Oaks Church of Christ exists by the grace and eternal plan of God. Our purpose is to bring glory to God through worship, service, and evangelism. We represent Christ as His body and seek to carry forth His work.
WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN VISITING SEVEN OAKS
When you visit one of our Sunday services, you can expect to find a simple worship service that adheres to the teachings of the New Testament. When we assemble on every Lord’s Day (Acts 20:7, Revelation 1:10), which is Sunday, we will worship God by . . .
- Praying: We are led by different men in our congregation (1 Timothy 2:1-8).
- Singing: The whole congregation joins together in praising God in song without the use of musical instruments (Ephesians 5:19, Colossians 3:16). In case anyone is unfamiliar with one of the songs, the words are available in our songbooks and also on a screen in front of the auditorium. Many of our visitors choose to join us in singing, while others prefer simply to listen as we worship.
- Taking Communion: Every Sunday, our members remember Christ’s death by eating unleavened bread and drinking fruit of the vine (Acts 20:7). We sit quietly for a few minutes and reflect on how wonderful it is that God loved us enough to give his own Son for us!
- Preaching: We will enjoy a Bible lesson that lasts about 30 minutes (Acts 2:42; Romans 10:14). On most Sundays Josh Ketchum, our preaching minister, presents these lessons, though occasionally a guest speaker will guide our thoughts. Each lesson will take a Bible passage and explain what it means and how it applies to our lives.
- Giving: Each member of this congregation contributes weekly to the work of the church (1 Corinthians 16:2). We do not ask or expect our visitors to give anything in the offering.
Wednesday Night Bible Study
Our Wednesday evening service begins at 7:00pm with everyone meeting in the auditorium for about 15 minutes. After a short devotional, we will take a short break in which everyone will go to one of many classes being offered. The children will be taught in age-appropriate classes by teachers who have a prepared an exciting Bible lesson. Adult classes will also be provided.
In all of our classes you can expect to open the Bible so we can all study and grow in our faith. During these times we also encourage one another (Hebrews 10:24-25) and help one other maintain that Christian light (Matthew 5:16) to shine for others during our work week.
Word of God
You can expect us to have a wholesome respect for the inspired word of God, the sole and complete authority. Because the Seven Oaks Church of Christ accepts the Word of God as the all-sufficient rule of faith and practice, we reject all human creeds (Galatians 1:8-9; Revelation 22:18-19).
Becoming a Christian
If you’re interested in becoming a Christian, we would love to have an opportunity to share what the Bible says to you about your relationship to God. The Bible teaches that we are saved by God’s grace, not through our own efforts or through our ability to do good works (Ephesians 2:8-9). We are saved completely by what Jesus did for us at the cross.
In order to accept God’s offer of salvation, we believe in Jesus Christ as the Son of God (John 8:24). God convicts us of our sinfulness and leads us to commit our lives to him (Luke 13:3). We confess our faith in Jesus (Romans 10:9-10) and accept the free gift of salvation as we are baptized into Christ for the forgiveness of our sins (Acts 2:38; Romans 6:3-5).
As Christians, we try to live for Christ, though we fail him often. We draw encouragement from our relationship to local Christians in the church, and we worship God regularly. As we study the Bible, we grow in our knowledge and understanding, and God shapes us into the person he created us to be.
If you have any questions about spiritual matters, or if we can help you in any way, please contact us. We would be thrilled to have an opportunity to get to know you better and to talk to you about God’s plans for your life.
