First Let Us Say, "Welcome"
Thanks for checking us (and our website) out! We created this section to try to provide answers to some of the questions we'd guess you might be wondering about. But if you don't find the answers you're looking for here, please give us a call (952-881-6956) or send us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
So who are we?
We're an Evangelical Free Church (check out "About Us" if you want more details about what that means). We're in Bloomington, Minnesota, about half a mile north of Kennedy High School.
We're not a huge congregation--on an average Sunday you'll find around 200 of us worshiping together. That means we can get to know each other. And most people tell us we're welcoming, so we'd like to know you too. We're under a year old, over ninety, and everything in between.
We believe in what the Bible says (yeah, all of it). And that tells us we're sinners in need of a savior. So what we most want to do is make a difference in people's lives by pointing them to our savior, Jesus Christ. And, we believe in caring for our community, each other and the world...because He told us to.
So check out the links and if you're even a little intrigued, please stop by and see us.
So What's it Like at Oxboro on Sunday Morning?
That's a real good question. Hope you like variety, because that's really what our Sunday Service is--varied. Most of the time it is lead by a Worship Team of 3-4 singers, plus a band of 3-7.
Music style? Yep, our music has style! In fact we have some terrific musicians--seriously, these people are talented. Some Sundays they'll be rocking out to the latest praise tunes. Sometimes there might be organ music and classic hymns.
There's almost always drums, keyboard and guitar. But on occasions there are cellos, African drums or four guys beating on buckets.
Not quite up to the whole sanctuary worship thing? Or just want to relax with a cup o' Joe while you listen to the sermon? Our video cafe has a live feed from the main worship, with a more laid back attitude.
