About the College Support Group

The College Support team has a mission of keeping the young adults, especially those entering either college or the military, connected to their “roots” in the church and reminding them that they are loved by the Oakland United Methodist community. This ministry regularly sends cards, gift cards, homemade cookies and care packages to the young adults who are away from the church, especially around the holidays and “finals week”. The College Support Team has been active at Oakland since 2006.

We send gift baskets, church announcements, and other care packages to our college students throughout the year.
