Current Church News and Events

Dear Oak Hills Family –
I pray this message finds you safe and well.  I know some in our church family are still without power, while others are just now beginning to pick up and resume life after the storm.  IF YOUR HOUSEHOLD HAS NEEDS: for a generator, yard debris pickup, food, ice, or anything else, please call Jeremy’s cell at 509-850-7290.  Our church family has many willing hands ready to help!

Obviously, the storm shut down our plans for worship last Sunday, and again on Ash Wednesday.  However, power and internet have been restored here at church as of last night.  We will therefore hold worship as usual this Sunday – 9:15 and 11am in-person, with livestream at 9:15 on our YouTube channel.  I encourage you to join us if you’re able, as we mark the first Sunday in Lent, and share in the Lord’s supper. The events of the past week, and the past year, make this Lenten season an especially timely opportunity for spiritual renewal. 

Also, for Lent, we have prepared special to-go kits for Rice & Beans month: a gift bag with rice, beans, a recipe card and a Lenten devotional are awaiting your pick up here at church!  Grab yours this Sunday if you plan to attend worship in person or come by next week during office hours to take your gift bag home and get started on Rice & Beans month with us!  This is a simple and meaningful way to observe Lent and share God’s abundance.

As we move forward, may you know the daily grace of Christ, sustaining us in every storm. 

Yours in Him,
Jeremy

Dear Oak Hills Family –
How wonderful it has been to return to in-person worship since Sunday December 13th!  Depending on interest, we will hold one or two services each Sunday going forward in 2021. Please contact the church office (503-654-4321) or email us at ohpc_admin@oakhillspres.org if you’d like to reserve your seats. Those not in attendance will still be able to worship with us from home via live stream.  Home worship materials will no longer be published in advance, since we are able to provide all of the text and lyrics in our live steam using our new camera and projection systems.

In order to adhere to current state regulations, we will be keeping in-person services to a 30-person maximum.  The services will be abbreviated to about 45 minutes in length, and children will stay seated with their families.  Masks will be required, and music will be presented from the front rather than participatory.  Upon entering, temperatures will be taken and touchless hand sanitizers will be available.

Yours in Him,
Jeremy
