Oak Lawn UMC is a Reconciling Congregation: Loving, Compassionate, Inclusive. We welcome people of all ages, races, backgrounds, abilities, economic circumstances, sexual orientations, and gender identities into the life and leadership of our church. We commit to advocating for justice and full inclusion of all people in our congregation and in the community we serve.
On Sunday, February 7, 2016, members at OLUMC voted to become a member of the Reconciling Ministries Network. We are proud to “Let Love Continue” (Hebrews 13:1-2) by welcoming all people into our church family and we look forward to continuing to grow in ministry with our neighbors. We are devoted to opening the hearts of many to those who are different than we are. By including everyone no matter their background, we open up the hearts of many and remind people that they are loved and they are welcome in God’s house.
