Join us for a fun, free afternoon out on the lanes. Bowling and snacks and so much fun! All are welcome. All are invited. See you there!
We are well into fall and well into our classes here at Oak Hill, but we are always inviting new folks to join in the conversation.
Sundays at 9:30 a.m. – Christian Education for All Ages
The Adult Sunday School class meets in the Theleos Room on the lower level. We are currently working through a Sparkhouse study on Spiritual Practices, facilitated by Pastor Erin. In November we’ll begin a new series digging deeper into the Reformation, in celebration of #Reformation500, with Pastor Korla.
The Childrens’ Sunday School class meets in the Children’s Church Room and is spending this year learning through the lectionary, with a curriculum from Feasting on the Word. Lisa Thompson and Sara Gibson lead this class.
Wednedays at 11:00 a.m. – Wednesday Bible Study
The Wednesday Bible Study Class is reading Dr. John Goldingay’s 1&2 Kings for Everyone. Pastor Erin then leads the discussion as we work through the entire books of 1st and 2nd Kings.
Thursdays at 6:30 p.m. – Thursday Night Bible Study
Pastor Korla is teaching a class on the Canonization of the Bible. Join us as we look at how the books in the bible were collected and edited and shifted and compiled.
We are also starting up a Youth Confirmation Class and have two different book clubs meeting monthly. There is something for everyone at Oak Hill!
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!
Join us for terrifying trivia, a silent auction, 50/50 raffle, and prizes for the best costume and best decorated table!
Friday, October 27th. Doors open at 6 p.m. Trivia starts at 7 p.m.
Bring your own food and beverages (alcohol permitted) or purchase pizza by the slice and sodas for $1!
TIckets are $25, or $160 for a table of 8 (a $40 savings!) – can be purchased by emailing email@example.com or available at the door.
All proceeds benefit our ministry at AMEN St. Louis. For more information about this program go to www.amenstlouis.org.
Join us for Rally Day, the kick-off to our new Sunday School year!
In worship you’ll meet our Sunday School teachers and hear a little about our plans for the year. Then we’ll have a big church potluck on the front lawn to celebrate. We’ll have food, games, and crafts for all! Bring a friend, bring a neighbor, bring a dish to share… or just show up and join the fun!
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.
The horrific happenings in Charlottesville are on our hearts and minds and all over our newsfeeds and screens.
Please remain in prayer. Please speak up. Please listen deeply. Please continue to seek justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with God.
