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!
Our last month of our Pastor’s Sabbatical! SING PRAISES TO GOD!!! Not only has this been a time of renewal for our Pastor, but for us as well. We have not only survived, but we have thrived (unlike our Memorial Tree). We have not gone into hibernation like our tree! We have carried on and planned for the coming months. And it was not just the Boards doing all the work. It was each of you that has made the planning successful. You have proved over and over that Oak Lawn is truly a family and a community.
You have welcomed various Pastors, shared each other’s burdens, and rejoiced in celebrations. Basically, we have done what God calls us to be and to do. I give thanks to God for enabling us to do that. And I give thanks for each of you for making my job as your Moderator so filled with joy and so easy as we have navigated through these last two months and will continue to do the same in this last month of our Pastor’s Sabbatical. I have said before that we are “ Oak Lawn Strong” and each of us, working together, proves that to be true, still.
Having said that, I am sure that you are with me in counting down the days until our Pastor returns. We may be strong, but that does not mean we do not miss Pastor Barbara. We miss her, we need her, and we want to get back to “normal”. Our family wants to be complete. We miss and need our Shepherd!
Blessings Beyond Measure,
