About Us

Oconee Fellowship is a group of people who have gathered together to begin a new church in Oconee County.

Who We Are

We are a group of people in desperate need of God's forgiving and renewing grace and with a deep desire to share that grace with our neighbors and friends. As someone else has said, we know there is no
one who is so bad on their worst day that they are beyond the reach of God's grace; we also know there is no one who is so good on their best day that they are beyond the need of God's grace. For us, it's grace from beginning to end. We are grateful for Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Athens (redeemerathens.com) in sacrificing so much to see this new work move forward.

Meet Our Music Director

Jessica Rollins longs for the truth of Jesus’ finished work on the cross to touch the hearts of people through the wonderful avenue of music. As a native Georgian, she has led music in a worship capacity for over 25 years. Formerly leading at Rockdale Community Church in Conyers, Church of the Apostles in Atlanta and Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Ft Lauderdale Fla., she now makes her home here in Watkinsville. Jessica is also a visual artist who specialized in wall murals and commissioned art for 17 years. The past 10 years she has fallen in love with creating abstract art. She and her husband, Kevin, have two beautiful children adopted from South America. They enjoy nature and anything farm related. Harvesting homegrown tomatoes from their garden and collecting fresh eggs from their chickens are family favorite activities.

Our Vision and Mission

When Jesus began his public ministry, he made the simple yet profound statement that “The kingdom of God is at hand,” (Mark 1:15). As he demonstrated throughout his ministry, this kingdom is the restorative reign of God breaking into a broken world. He ministered to people, forgave sins, reconciled people back to God and gave us the promise that one day he will make all things new. It is in light of that kingdom that our vision is “To see the restorative reign of God impact Oconee County and beyond.”

How do we accomplish the vision? We want to do it “by helping others enjoy, embody, and extend the gospel in every season and sphere of life.” We enjoy the gospel as we come to and grow in our faith; we embody the gospel as we grow in having a servant heart towards others, and we extend the gospel by sharing it with our neighbors and the nations. All of these things- enjoying, embodying, and extending- we want to do in every season of life – whether happy or hard, and every sphere of life- as men, women, employees, employers, students, children, parents, etc.

What We Believe

We are a congregation of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) and our beliefs are outlined in the Westminster Confession of Faith.. We are a church rooted in the Reformed tradition and seek to show others the beauty, majesty, goodness, and grace of our God.
