By Faith Oakland… Part 2

After last week’s sermon looking at the first 100 years of Oakland’s history, Pastor Andrew had many of you asking to hear the rest of the story.  To remember and revisit our history from the last 50 or so years.  There have been some hard times that Oakland has faced, but through it all God has been with us and lead us as only He can.  This second part of Oakland’s history is a story many members of Oakland lived through, and one that newer members should hear to get to know Oakland better.

The recording is a little soft, so you may need to turn up the sound on your listening device to be able to clearly here the message.
