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!
Greetings in the Name of the Lord!
Well, the month of January seemed to go by so quickly and we can no longer say we are still at the beginning of another year.
Even though we may not have said it out loud, many of us thought about things we would like to do better, and ways we would like to improve our lives so that when we get to the end of this year, we can look back and give thanks to God for helping us to meet our goals.
As Christians, we must always have that desire to “do better” and become all that we can be by the grace of God, not only for ourselves but also for those whose lives we are called to touch with the love of the Lord.
While we make our list of things to do, whether it be in our minds, or on paper, or on a smart phone, we must also know that their will be obstacles and spiritual blocks to accomplishing what we set out to do.
Therefore, I would like to encourage you to do what you can as 2018 continues to unfold, with the help of the Holy Spirit, to make an impact in the world around you by simply being committed to God’s leading in your life.
Be sensitive to the Spirit’s voice, and you will be amazed at how the Spirit can use you!
You may find, that traffic jam may have a purpose.
You may discover, that person in the shopping line so irritated may not always be unreasonable, especially when you take time to look for an opportunity to minister kindness to him or her.
If we will simply do some of the small things, they will add up into something big accomplished for the Kingdom of God over the next year, and you will look back in appreciation to the Lord for the way God has led you.
Thanks for being part of us here at Oak Lawn Community Baptist Church!
