Jesus gave the Great Commission to the church: Making disciples … go (Matt. 28:19-20). Growth Groups at Oakland Hills Community Church are intended to be one means of being faithful to this charge. Growth Groups encourage people to grow as disciples by studying God’s Word together and to connect with other pilgrims on the journey.

- The Screwtape Letters @ 7pm Tuesday nights – facilitated by Doug & Jane Vos
- The Screwtape Letters @ 7pm Thursday nights – at OHCC building – facilitated by Luke Partin
C.S. Lewis penned a masterful satire on human weakness, temptation, sin and the means to flee the attacks of Satan.
Screwtape, an experienced demon, pens a series of letters to his nephew and apprentice demon, Wormwood, instructing him on the most effective means and strategies to draw people away from their Heavenly Father.
Whether this is your first time with this classic or whether your tenth, this book will provide a touch of humor while looking at a serious subject. Join us for a six week discussion of CS Lewis’ The Screwtape Letters.
