Let mutual love continue.  And do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers,

for by doing so, some of us have entertained God’s angels without knowing it.

Hebrews 13:1-2

As Christ’s Church, Oak Lawn United Methodist Church has this scriptural mandate built into its DNA.  For more than 140 years, the people called “Methodists” on the corner of Oak Lawn Avenue and Cedar Springs Road have been offering the love of God in ways too numerous to count.  Even before Dallas was a city, these faithful people, seeing beyond the boundaries of their immediate neighborhood, chose to be in ministry with the poor, the disenfranchised, children, youth  – anyone who was hurting, whether in body, mind, or spirit.  This community of faith has adapted and continues to adapt as the neighborhood evolves, and new challenges present themselves.  Today, its proud tradition of biblical hospitality continues with its commitment to full inclusion of all people in the Body of Christ, its dedication, still, to the well-being of children and young people in our neighborhood, and its outreach to anyone in search of a place to worship and serve where they will be welcomed wholeheartedly and without question.  It is no accident that the beautiful sanctuary, built a century ago, sits at one of the busiest intersections in Dallas.  This is where God has firmly planted us. We remain ready and willing to answer God’s call to offer love, mercy, justice, and compassion to all people. Who knows? If there is an angel in our midst, Oak Lawn is ready!
