Oak Grove’s Spring Musical, Bible Folk, Saturday, March 17 at 3:00 pm and Sunday, March 18 at the 10:45 am worship service. Come enjoy our talented singers in a performance of Bible Folk. The musical is a group of songs, each about a different Bible character. These characters, much like us, laughed and cried, were afraid and were strong. Through music we will tell their stories. Their faults, deeds, lives and faith are living examples for all of us. No tickets are needed. Invite friends to come with you!
