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!
Dear Friends in Christ,
Several people have commented to me lately that their hearts go out to several of our members who have gone through some very tough times this year.
I know there are times when we all wonder how we’ll make it through another day. At such times, we long to fly away from all our stress and worries and grief.
Plus, we live in a world that constantly screams for our attention no matter what we are going through: bills to pay, work to accomplish, people who need us.
The antidote to what concerns us today is the same as it was in David’s day. David, the man God used to write some of the most beautiful verses in the Bible, experienced many trials and tribulations. When- ever trouble entered his life, David knew what to do. “I sought the LORD, and He answered me; He delivered me from all my fears.” (Psalms 34:4)
Take heart, my brothers and sisters in Christ: No matter how heavily burdened you may be or how much pressure you are under, God is with you.
Know that God can deliver you and provide you with a peace that surpasses all understanding as you seek the Lord.
As Jesus says, I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world. (John 16:33 )
I encourage you to press on and to know your church family is here to support you.
