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.

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.
