Oaks Presbyterian Church was established in 1948 in the Oak Forest community of Houston, Texas. Through the years, Oaks has continued its feel as a “neighborhood church.” Most members live in the Oak Forest area, and many grew up in this church and attended local schools.
For almost 70 years we have served our neighborhood and beyond in many ways.
- The kindergarten and first grade classes from Oak Forest Elementary held classes at our church until Stevens Elementary was completed.
- The Women's Circle of our church participated in many service projects for those in need.
- We opened one of the first Mother’s Day Out programs in the area in the early 1980's.
- Members of the church participated in student mentoring programs at Black Middle school.
- The church sponsored one of the first recycling efforts in the city by providing bins for recyclables and was instrumental in urging the City of Houston to provide residences with curbside recycling bins.
- We have served as a distribution hub for Meals on Wheels to help bring meals to those in need in our community.
- We have served as the meeting place for community groups and assistance organizations including Alcoholics Anonymous, Leisure Learning Unlimited, Harris Count Precinct 4 outreach groups, start-up Christian churches plus more.
- Oaks Presbyterian Church was one of ten community churches who helped establish MANNA, and we continue to provide assistance program funding and volunteers for its resale shop.
- Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts have met at our church for more than 65 years.
Our members love Christmas caroling to neighbors, collecting for community food drives, making care boxes for the sailors at the Port of Houston Seafarer's Center, serving in other mission projects and taking care of each other. Giving back is just what we do.
Come and be a part of our caring church family!
Oaks Presbyterian Church is a member of the Presbytery of New Covenant and the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)
