Who We Are
At Oak Dale Church, we desire to glorify God through loving and serving people. It is our prayer that all those who attend feel welcomed, just as they are. We are located in a beautiful, rural setting, right outside of the Gainesville, Bristow and Haymarket areas on Vint Hill, in Prince William/Fauquier counties. It is serene and away from the everyday chaos of life. We want you to know how the peace and presence of Jesus opens hearts and changes lives. We believe that changed lives inspire action that is glorifying to the Lord.
