At Oak Lawn Community Baptist Church, we support people as they seek to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
We are an American Baptist Church in partnerships with American Baptist Churches of Rhode Island and American Baptist Churches, USA. We are ecumenically minded and seek opportunities for worship and service with other community churches.
Our church welcomes diverse families. We provide for Christian Education (Sunday School) for school aged children, as well as a nursery for pre-school children during worship services.
A very important part of our worship at Oak Lawn Community Baptist Church is our music program. We have been blessed with a strong music ministry consisting of a Sanctuary Choir, Hand bell Choir, two organists, and many musically talented members who readily share their gifts during the worship services throughout the year.
At the conclusion of worship every Sunday all are invited to the fellowship hall to join in conversation and refreshments.
Oak Lawn Community Baptist Church is located at 229 Wilbur Avenue in Cranston. We warmly invite you to worship with us on a Sunday morning at 9:30 am. Until then, may our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ richly bless you!
Rally Day is the start of a new year of teaching and learning in many congregations.
Most often it is a day in early September that signifies the end of summer vacation and the return to Sunday school.
Rally Day is an indispensable part of the life and mission of many congregations.
It is the time to recognize and honor both those who teach and those who learn; along with all who nurture faith in others. This year we are pairing Rally Day with Grandparents Day because we are keenly aware of the invaluable role many grandparents play in the spiritual development of their grandchildren. We invite all grandparents to bring their grandchildren to Rally Day this year.
In addition to grandparents, Rally Day provides a unique opportunity to acknowledge the partnership of parents and teachers and other congregational members in affirming a lifestyle that is Jesus’ style. It is a time for the entire congregation to rally behind God's intention that all Christians--children, youth and adults--grow and learn from the Bible; a day for congregations to celebrate their ministry of Christian education! So, I encourage everyone to come out and celebrate Rally Day with us this year, a day sure to be fun and inspirational.
Included on the next page is an informative letter written by Darlene Conti, chair of the Christian Education Board, to the Parents and Children at Oak Lawn Community Baptist Church. The letter gives the details of our Rally Day plans and we hope it inspires you to catch our Rally Day Fever! [See the letter here.]
