Service as Worship Sunday



Join us during our regular Sunday worship hour. We’ll gather in the sanctuary to pray and sing and read scripture, then head downstairs to make food and care packs for our neighbors, write letters to elected offices, craft blankets to keep folks warm, and so much more!
Sunday, Jan. 20th at 10:30 am. See you there!

MLK Day Youth Service and Learning Blitz 2019

Calling all youth!

Join us for our annual MLK Day Youth Service and Learning Blitz. Middle- and High- School students are invited to spend the day learning about Dr. King, serving their neighbors, oh, and having some fun, too!

This year, we’ll meet at church, share in a bit of conversation, then work on some care project for our un-housed neighbors. Then we’ll go downtown to Christ Church Cathedral and participate in their MLK Day tradition of reading Dr. King’s works, from the pulpit where he spoke in 1964. We’ll have lunch and snacks, of course, and we’ll finish out our day with some fun at Great American Human Foosball.

Please contact Pastor Erin (erin.counihan@oakhillpcusa.org) to RSVP. But also know we’re pretty flexible and always welcome last minute additions.

Adult volunteers are always needed to help drive and provide supervision.

Mission Trip 2019

We’re going on a Mission Trip!

We’ll spend the week working with a local church and local youth through Baltimore Presbytery’s ministry at The Center. The Center is the organization we handed off the Hands and Feet program to after GA223, as Baltimore prepares to host GA224 in 2020.

Please see the Jan 2019 newsletter for more information about the trip and how you can get involved. Or contact the church office or Dena Roper, Mission Committee Chair.

The trip is scheduled for June 22-29, 2019. Volunteers aged 7th grade through adult are welcome. It costs $450 per person, which includes housing, programming, and food. Travel expenses will be an additional expense. We won’t make travel arrangements until we know how many folks are going. Scholarships are available for those who need financial support to make the trip. Please talk to Dena or Pastor Erin about scholarships.

A Vision for Our Building

In the Jan. 2019 newsletter, Pastor Erin shared about our new Building Vision Task Force. The session has asked a team of Oak Hill leaders to have conversations and dream up ideas for our church building. We have a number of maintenance issues and upgrades on our minds, but also, it’s a good time to dream of how we are and how we might best use this wonderful building for this season of Oak Hill ministry. On Jan. 6th, at our regular fellowship lunch, the Building Vision Task Force will host the meal, share a presentation of where we are so far, and offer up time and space for conversation, brainstorming, and wild idea generating. It’s a time for the congregation to dream and wonder and pray and discern God’s call for our building. We’re excited to join together in this work!
See you on Jan. 6th after worship!
