Are your kids from a different planet?

A new teaching series to help parents understand and connect with their kids

Parenting is one of the most rewarding and difficult experiences in life,

yet many times parents just go through the motions, not giving it much thought. Each child has his or her own character and personality, which is why it’s sometimes difficult to know exactly how to navigate parenting.

Are there key attitudes you would like to impart in your kids?

Are you having a difficult time making an impact with all the noise in the world? The Bible is perhaps the greatest parenting guide known to man. It’s full of wisdom that speaks to gratitude, appreciation, and generosity. It can help you grow healthy, confident kids with sound character who are full of life.

Join us as we help parents narrow the gap between the different worlds of parents and kids.

Meet Matt VanCleave, Lead Pastor

Matt VanCleave is Blue Oaks’ Teaching Pastor, providing transformational teaching and overseeing all aspects of the weekend services.  Matt’s desire is to provide an irresistible church environment where every person can experience life in all its fullness through Jesus Christ. Matt earned his B.A. in Biblical Studies from Judson University and M.A. in Religion from Trinity International University.

Matt and his wife Kathy have two daughters and a son. When Matt is not studying or spending time with his family, he enjoys snowboarding, golf, rowing and gardening. A lifelong Chicago Cubs fan, Matt proudly wore his Cubs jersey while teaching on the Sunday following their 2016 World Series Championship win, but he lost a long-standing teaching illustration in the bargain.

Everyone is welcome at Blue Oaks Church

We are a non-denominational church that began in 2012 and currently offers 3 Sunday service times: 8:45, 10:00 and 11:15 am.  Our goal is to become the kind of church that people who don’t normally attend church, like to attend.

Pastor Matt VanCleave is our teaching pastor. Matt is gifted at applying biblical truths to our lives and challenging us to live them out more authentically. If you are looking to deepen your faith or are just exploring what Christianity is all about, we hope you’ll give Blue Oaks a try.
