Reaching Out to the World
Engaging the community is the first step to changing the world. At Mount Oak, we’re committed to positively impacting the world around us, starting with our own neighborhoods.
We have a variety of outreach programs which we encourage you to engage with us in. Whether you’re interested in sports, local outreach or global missions, we’ve got an opportunity for you.
At Mt. Oak, we believe that God has called us to make disciples of all people — beginning with those who live in our neighborhood. We reach out to our own city through a ministry called “Bowie StreetReach” in which we help people with their yard work. We specialize in tackling those jobs that have gotten a little out of hand. Every summer we host a local mission trip where young and old alike spend a week reaching out to the residents of Bowie through practical acts of service, sharing the love of Jesus Christ, and beautifying our community one yard at a time. In the process, we have an absolute BLAST! — good food, fun, games, movie nights, water fights, and building new friendships that last a lifetime. StreetReach is a great way for youth to earn at least 30 hours of community service.
StreetReach 2020 will be July 5-11. The cost includes all meals, travel, and housing. If you need help with your yard in the summer of 2020, or want more information about StreetReach, email firstname.lastname@example.org

The Mission Committee meets monthly and oversees the provision of financial support for Mount Oak’s designated missionaries, keeps the congregation involved and informed about its missionaries, provides opportunities for members to go on mission trips overseas and within the USA, considers requests from missionaries for support and coordinate church-wide service projects that provide specific items for various local and global missions.
We offer financial support to missionary families through our independent Mission Ministry. This ministry is not a part of the church’s budget. Our funding comes directly from our faithful congregation. Your support has allowed us to provide consistent, uninterrupted monthly support. We praise God and thank you for your faithful support and making this Mission Ministry possible.
Our Mission families are all unique and provide many types of services all over the world. Some of our missionaries are trained Pastors and Church Planters. They provide medical coverage & supplies, serve in elementary to graduate schools, pray with members of the US government, door to door evangelism, serve in food pantries, teach Bible studies & Sunday school, provide homes for orphans and more!
Two of our seven mission families attend our first service; two serve in the USA; one in Canada, one in Panama, and one in Peru. One family we have supported since 1972 and one is supported only by our church and a few Mt. Oak families.
