Welcome to Oak Lawn Community Baptist Church.
We are glad you found our developing website. We hope you find it informative.
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 through music. We have been blessed with a strong music ministry consisting of a Sanctuary Choir, Hand bell Choir, Youth 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!
I don’t know about you but summer is my very favorite season of the year. That is because summertime is a time for enjoying the great outdoors, long sunny days, hikes in the woods, vacations, and barbeques, dips in the pool, and days at the beach. Summer invites us to slow down and do more fun things. As far as I am concerned, summer is a gift to us from our Creator.
We usually have more time to ourselves in the summer months, yet it seems that it is harder to make time for our spiritual lives. My prayer for all is that we will not only seek opportunities for physical relaxation and fun but also for spiritual re-centering.
As we enjoy vacation time and the great outdoors, we have a chance to become more aware of the beauty and wonders of creation and rediscover the love and grace of our Creator.
I encourage you to take some time this summer to stop and observe creation and allow the Creator and Sustainer of it all, to re-center, refresh and strengthen you.
In addition to relaxing and fun events, take and make opportunities for spiritual activities such as reading inspirational books, going to stirring concerts or inspiring plays; or connecting with old and new friends in Christ.
No matter what your comings and goings, may God’s presence richly bless and keep you this summer.
