Barefoot Worship: As a response to places in scripture where God commands the
faithful to remove their shoes, (Exodus 3:5; Joshua 5:15) it can be a meaningful practice for some to do likewise when in worship. Worship is meant to incorporate our
mind, soul, heart, and body. You are welcome to remove your shoes as well if you feel
so led, but please feel no obligation as worship is unique for us all.
Please silence or turn off your cell phone during worship.
If your child becomes restless during worship, there are rocking chairs
in the foyer where you will continue to hear the service.
STEPHEN MINISTERS
A Stephen Minister will be available at the front pew immediately
following each Sunday service for anyone in need of prayer or Christian
care.
PASTORAL CARE
If you or a family member are facing any kind of crisis, your pastors
want to minister to you. Please use the contact cards in the pews or contact Pastor Pam via email ([email protected]) or phone (512)
627-4825. The pastors would like to pray with you before surgery and
visit during your hospital stay. You can also be on the church-wide
prayer chain by requesting this on a pew card or contacting Rebecca
Fontenot at [email protected] with your need.
RE-CHARGE THIS WEDNESDAY
Our Re-Charge Worship service will be a Labyrinth walk. Meet at 6:15
at the Labyrinth (located on the far side of the Children’s building) for
introduction and instruction. Join us for dinner first in the Fellowship
Hall starting at 5:30 p.m. A roasted chicken salad bar is on this week’s
menu.
CALLING ALL GREETERS
OHUMC is always looking for friendly faces to help us welcome people
to church. To help either greeting people or working the Info Desk on
Sundays, contact Susan McBride at [email protected] or (512)

Coordinator, Jennifer Barkis, at [email protected] or (512)
801-0269 at least 48 hours prior to the event.

NAMETAGS
We want everyone to feel a part of our Oak Hill UMC family. If you
would like a nametag and/or a hanging folder in the narthex, please write
a note requesting one on your attendance card. Please include your
phone number or email address in case we have any questions.
PLEASE NOTE: With Easter being next Sunday, there will be no
communion served at next Sunday’s worship services. Communion
will be offered on April 12.
ENDOWMENT PIGGY BANK IS HUNGRY
Today we will have a special collection for our endowment fund.
Please give generously to the children collecting for the OHUMC
Endowment Fund. It is so beneficial to our church’s future.
EASTER MISSION
For the season of Lent, Oak Hill UMC has challenged each of us to
participate in a beans and rice fast, replacing one meal a day with
beans and rice. With a goal of simplicity and reflection over the
course of the fast, it is our prayer that you will consider making a
special Easter mission donation for the amount you saved on food by
eating simply over the past 40 days. On Easter Sunday, just mark
your check or envelope with “Mission offering” and drop it in the
offering plate.
SEDER MEAL ON MAUNDY THURSDAY
Today is the last day to get tickets for our Seder Meal this Thursday,
April 2. The meal and program will begin promptly at 6:00. There
will be a full program explaining what each component of the meal
represents. Tickets are $10 each and available in the narthex.
THE CROSS PROJECT
This year’s Cross Project is underway. The idea is to create a cross
of your own design and donate it to the project. There will be a silent
auction beginning on April 12 (through April 19) and all money
raised will go toward local or regional mission projects. Contact
Vicki Matustik with any questions at [email protected]
HISTORICAL COMMITTEE
Do you have a special memory involving Oak Hill UMC? The
historical committee is looking for your stories and/or pictures that
you would like to share. Please send your recollections to
[email protected] They will be sorted, compiled and used to
create a memory book.
BUCK A BOOK SALE
The UMW is collecting books for the annual sale scheduled for May
2. Bring new or gently used books to the old nursery (next to Fellowship Hall) in the main building. Thank you for supporting the
UMW missions.
