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!
Warm Greetings in Christ!
Isn’t it wonderful to use the word “warm”?
Summer is my very favorite season of the year and I look forward to basking in the sun down near the ocean and poolside with family and friends.
Yes, the summer months are here and some in our church family are looking forward to vacation time as they pack up and head to their favorite vacation destinations. While there are those who tend to just enjoy what our beautiful Ocean State has to offer, most do enjoy getting away when possible.
While we here at Oak Lawn Community Baptist Church meet on a weekly basis for worship, I would like to encourage you to remember us both in your prayers and support.
The summer months can be challenging for churches as attendance drops off and people take a break from gathering together. I am reminded of Psalm 121:1, which reads, “I was glad when they said to me, let us go into the house of the Lord.”
This verse of scripture seems to jump off the page of the Bible it is written on as the Psalmist declares the tremendous joy and anticipation he has at the mere mention of going to the house of the Lord.
We realize today that “the house of the Lord” is far more than just a building as the Bible declares that we are the temple of the Holy Spirit. None-the-less, there is still something quite amazing about gathering together with the family of God on a regular basis to worship and serve the Lord.
May we all enjoy a warm and relaxing summer that includes being together in the house of the Lord regularly. After all, as we read in Paul’s letter to the Ephesians, “Christ loves the church and gave Himself up for her.”
