Oak Hill congregation began on October 30, 2005. The founding members were
all faithful members of the church but had moved their residences to
southern Henry County and Butts County and the commute to other
congregations was becoming harder. Also, the members saw a community that
was one of the fastest growing areas in Georgia and the closest congregation
was 20-30 minutes away. So about thirty Christians met on that great day in
October and began worshipping as the Oak Hill church of Christ.
The group began meeting in the basement of the home of
one of its members. The group continued to meet there until November 20,
2005, when we ran across an opportunity to begin renting a piece of property
that was being used as a worship facility by another religious group. The
facility was also for sale and the members at Oak Hill, showing their faith
in what God had put before them and believing in the power of prayer,
pursued a contract to purchase the property. For three months, the group
worked to secure financing for the property and their efforts were blessed
with success when on February 24, 2006, the group closed on the property. In
less than four months, the congregation was able to become a legal
not-for-profit corporation recognized by the state of Georgia, begin
operations with weekly worship services and activities including a Bible
School program for all ages, AND purchase 6.6 acres with a building and a
Today, the Oak Hill congregation has full-time preacher
and is growing thanks to the grace of God.
Come visit us at the intersection of Highways 81 and
212 on the Henry/Newton county line. You will find a loving family of
Christians who worship according to the New Testament example.
The Oak Hill congregation FULLY recognizes that God is
at work in this endeavor and are honored to be a part of this work.
