Our mission statement 

Guided by the Holy Spirit, we are inspired to:

              Speak, teach and live the gospel (or good news) of Jesus Christ,

              Seek  justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with God,

              Welcome, nurture and sustain all God’s people.

 

 

About Presbyterians:

Presbyterian and Reformed churches share a common origin in the 16th-century Swiss Reformation and the teachings of John Calvin, and today make up one of the largest branches of Protestant Christianity.  There are about 75 million Reformed/Presbyterian Christians worldwide; about 2.5 million belong to the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).

The name “Presbyterian” comes from the representational form of church government called presbyterian. In presbyterian churches, governing authority is given to elected lay leaders known as “elders” (or “presbyters”), who work with the congregation’s ordained minister. Presbyterian belief and practice center on the Bible and the sovereignty of God.

Oak Hill is a member of the Presbyterian Church (USA). To learn more about PC(USA) or what Presbyterians believe visit pcusa.org

Book Club

Cozy up with our book of the month and join us monthly for a discussion of the book and a time of fellowship with one another.

Presbyterian Women

There is always a place for you at the table with the Presbyterian Women of Oak Hill.  Together with the Caregivers, we are happy to reach out to our extended members and engage in other outreach. 

Circle

One of many social groups at the church, we meet and share a time of fellowship over a meal once a month with our sisters and brothers in Christ. 

Crafting Group

He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God 

Micah 6:8

 

Outreach

Whether it's down the street or around the world, our congregation is active in service and mission. Members are encouraged to walk humbly in Christ's shoes through service in the world.

Mission Trips

Join us on one of our yearly mission trips. Past youth and intergenerational trips have visited urban locations like Chicago, Atlanta, Gulfport, San Antonio and Denver as well as rural West Virginia, Arkansas, and Kentucky.

Pastor

The Rev. Erin Counihan joined Oak Hill Presbyterian in ministry in July 2014. Although she doesn’t fully understand that cheese that guy Imo puts on the pizza here, she has already come to love the parks, museums, neighborhood restaurants, and of course, the people of her new hometown, St. Louis! Originally from Maryland, Erin went to college in Ohio and in Argentina, worked in Colorado, Baltimore, Mississippi and Chicago before heading to seminary in New Jersey. Erin likes to travel. She loves sports and free festivals, knitting and hiking, disaster recovery and elections, and always Cheetos and fancy cheeses. She is passionate about serving both God and neighbor and couldn’t be more thrilled to join Oak Hill in the way they do just that, right here in Tower Grove, right here in St. Louis. Erin holds a BA in Politics and Government from Ohio Wesleyan University and an MDiv from Princeton Theological Seminary. She lives in the neighborhood with her niece, Tegan, and their adorable dog Eddie.

Erin can be reached at erin.counihan@oakhillpcusa.org.
