Coronavirus (COVID-19) Response
Together we are caring for you and our community during this challenging time.
We realize the difficulty of this season and the impact it’s having on you and many people you know and love. Through partnerships with great organizations, Oaks Church is doing everything we can to meet the physical and spiritual needs of those in our church and community. If you are in need, or know someone who is we want to help. Here are a few opportunities that can either help you or help someone you know that may be in need.
Each HOPE Kit contains a variety of snack items, hygiene products, pantry staples, and cleaning supplies. Contents may vary between kits. If you would like to receive a HOPE Kit, click the button below.
Kids Breakfast & Lunch Program
We are able to provide 5 breakfasts and 5 lunches per child per week (to be picked up once per week) through June 17th. This is for the parents/guardians of any young person ages 1-18 in our community. Distribution will take place both in Red Oak and in Cedar Hill. To register your children, click the corresponding buttons below.
Need More Help
If you find that you are in need beyond these opportunities, please click here to let us know how we can help.
This is not a time for us, as a church, to be on pause, this is a time for us to be on mission. We are standing ready to empower you to be the church during this time!
Deliver Hope Kits
Some of the people in greatest need during this time are unable to leave their homes. If you would like to add your name to a list where we can contact you IF someone who lives near you (and within 10 miles of the church) who needs to have a HOPE Kit delivered to them, than click the the button below.

Updates as of March 18th, 2020
Out of consideration for the health and safety of our community, all services are now transitioning to an online or digital format. To continue receiving updates about Oaks Church during this time, text OAKS to 474747.
Instead of meeting on our Red Oak campus, we’ll be hosting services online and we’d love to have you host a Facebook Watch Party with us! This is a great way to engage with people you know while practicing social distancing. Watch this video from Pastor Scott as he shares his heart on staying connected.
Services available to you and your family
During these unprecedented times, we want you to know that you and your family are very important to us. Because of this, we are continuing with our Oaks Kids and Youth services online.
Pastor Scott and Dr. Matt Moreland from Baylor Scott & White in Midlothian, TX talk together about the Coronavirus (COVID-19), how to stay healthy, and how we should respond as a church body.
Dear Oaks Church Family,
I’m sure you are all thinking about what is going on in our world as it pertains to the Coronavirus. It’s hard not to think about it as we see it everywhere in news and social media, etc. We want to encourage everyone during this time to be prayerful. Let’s be in prayer for those who are affected in any way by this situation. Let’s also be praying that God would bring peace and comfort during this time. Let’s believe that God can use this situation for the good of His kingdom and for hearts to be turned toward Him.
With the heightened awareness and public concerns regarding the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) as well as the ongoing seasonal flu virus and common cold, we want to assure you that public health and safety concerns for our congregation and staff are our highest priority. See Pastor Scott’s video above to learn about how we are doing church for the time being!
The primary tactic of the enemy is fear. Yet, God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of love, power and a sound mind. [2 Timothy 1:7]. As a church, we aim to be proactive and use wisdom while continuing to declare the love of Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit in these times.
We are so grateful for your patience and flexibility as we monitor the situation in our city.
