Middle Oak Church
The church started by holding meetings at members' homes or under an oak tree. In 1999 the members worked together to pour a concrete slab over which they erected a tent for meetings. On September 15, 2002 a new building, constructed with assistance from several area churches and businesses, was dedicated. It was designed and built under the leadership of Myrick Gurosky & Associates church development company.
The building serves as a community center and shelter as well as a church. Food distribution, tutoring, literacy programs, and community activities are all held at the church building.
