Blessing of the Animals POSTPONED!

If your pet was planning to come to Oak Hill Presbyterian today for our Blessing of the Animals, please tell them that we’re postponing the service to NEXT Sunday, due to weather. We don’t want anyone’s fur/feathers/scales all messed up by this rain. Stay inside, drink some tea, and snuggle on the couch with your human friends. We’ll see you wonderful four-legged, mult-finned, or double-winged friends next Sunday (10/29) at 2pm for blessings and treats!

Responding to Hurricane Harvey

Hello Friends,

We all want to help our neighbors down in Texas who are dealing with this horrific storm. Right now, the absolute best way to help is to donate money. As the months and years go by, there will be additional needs and ways to help. Right now, this is the best way we know how to send God’s love to so many hurting people. The church is sending a financial donation to Presbyterian Disaster Assistance. We encourage members and visitors and neighbors and friends to do so as well. Here is the link to donate online. Please keep all residents, animals, first responders, care providers, volunteers, disaster response agencies, and government leaders in your prayers. This is going to be a long response.

Bring a friend! Bring a chair! We’ll provide the snacks, games, and fun!

We’d planned to show Back to the Future earlier this summer, but were rained out! So this time, the fun is ON!

See you Friday!

The Presbyterian Mission Agency and its Interim Executive Director, Tony De La Rosa, have put out a new video featuring conversations with local pastors and organizers about how congregations in St. Louis have been dealing with race and privilege over the past few years. Check out this video to see a few slices of those conversations:
