#FlatJesus

Summer is coming and folks have plans for trips, adventures, activities and fun! While you’re away, in case you miss worship or bible study or fellowship, or maybe in addition to worship and bible study and fellowship, we hope to remember that Jesus goes with us wherever we go! So this summer, take Flat Jesus with you! He’s light. He’s water-proof! He travels well!

You can pick up your own Flat Jesus in the back of the sanctuary (or download it here), color him in however you like, then bring him to Pastor Erin for laminating. Then take him on summer adventures with you. Post your Flat Jesus pics on social media with #flatjesus. Email them to the church and we’ll share them, too! Let’s see how much fun Jesus can have with us this summer!

Hunger Action Congregation

We are excited to announce that Oak Hill has been named a Certified Hunger Action Congregation by the Presbyterian Hunger Program.

From the Presbyterian Hunger Program Website:

Hunger Action Congregations Covenant:

As disciples of a loving God who inspires us to do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with our God, we commit to faithful action to end hunger and address its root causes.

The purpose of the Hunger Action Congregation process is to acknowledge and celebrate the faithful work of Presbyterians happening around the country to alleviate hunger and end its causes, and to encourage these ministries to be even more holistic and justice-oriented.

Yours is a Hunger Action Congregation if you are doing an activity in one or more of six areas. For congregations that are doing one or more activity in all six areas, you can be a Certified Hunger Action Congregation.  All of the Hunger Action Congregations will be celebrated on October 16, World Food Day.

 

  • Hunger Alleviation: providing and/or sharing food in a dignified way with an eye to long-term structural solutions
  • Development assistance: addressing the root causes of hunger and poverty through equitable and sustainable development
  • Hunger Education: learning about systemic causes of hunger, leading towards faithful action that is informed and directed by directly affected people and partners
  • Lifestyle Integrity: adopting sustainable personal and corporate lifestyles to restore justice and protect all of God’s creation
  • Corporate and Public Policy Witness: advocating and campaigning for changes in policies and practices to end hunger and its causes, promote self-development, and care for creation
  • Worship: incorporating prayer, education, and preaching about ending hunger and its causes into worship

Mark: LIVE! 

An interactive reading of the Gospel of Mark

As we journey through the Gospel of Mark this lectionary year, join us and spend the afternoon reading and walking through the whole book together. We will lay out the map of Jesus’s home turf in our sanctuary and move through the story as we read. On Sunday, 12/18 at 12:30 pm, Oak Hill Presbyterian Church invites you to be a part of Mark’s whole story. Come and walk, read, listen, and experience.

Two New Adult Classes

New Classes for the New Year!

We’re about to begin TWO new series in Thursday Bible Study and Adult Sunday School classes!

On Thursday evenings, beginning February 1, we will start reading The Rapture Exposed, by Dr. Barbara Rossing. This book explores the relatively recent development of the concept of the rapture, and the ways we think and talk about God, creation, and the end of time. We’ll read about a chapter a week and discuss some of the main points on Thursdays at 6:30 p.m.

On Sundays, beginning February 4, the adult Sunday School class will begin studying the Gospel of Mark using the book Say to This Mountain, by Ched Myers. Sundays at 9:30 a.m. in the Theleos Room.  We will be purchasing the books for these classes this week, so please contact the church office if you would like to reserve a copy.
