Asa Woodberry

Written by Rev. Maras Morehouse

We, at Oak Lawn UMC, believe that everyone deserves to be:

AND Respected

We, at Oak Lawn UMC, believe that as a church it is possible to offer this to one another when we:

Appreciate diversity
AND Love God above all else and our neighbor as ourselves

Therefore, as individual parts of the church, we
pledge to move towards this corporate reality so that the church can be:

A voice for the voiceless
A home for the wanderer
A respite for the weary
A balm for the hurting

God’s presence in the world.

Call to Worship

Asa Woodberry

Written by Gretchen Toler-Dobus

Some days feel like a giant fish
just waiting to devour us

Or like we’re parked in Noah’s ark
Floodwaters all around us

How can we be the Davids in
A world full of Goliaths

Believing God will help us to
Face evil with defiance?

Come gather ‘round this common ground
Make differences harmonious

Together we’ll find hope and sing
Of Good News that is glorious!


Sing With Us

"There Is a Balm in Gilead"  | UMH 375 | Led by Thiago Nascimento and the OLUMC Choir

There is a balm in Gilead
To make the wounded whole
There is a balm in Gilead
To heal the sin-sick soul

Sometimes I feel discouraged
And think my work's in vain
But then the Holy Spirit
Revives my soul again

Don't ever feel discouraged
For Jesus is your friend
And if you look for knowledge
He'll ne'er refuse to lend

If you can’t preach like Peter
If you can’t pray like Paul
just tell the love of Jesus
And say, "He died for all".

Kid's Time

Rev. Chuck Aaron 


Pastor Kaitlyn Frantz 

Mark 16:1-6

"When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices so that they might go to anoint Jesus’ body. Very early on the first day of the week, just after sunrise, they were on their way to the tomb  and they asked each other, “Who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb?” But when they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away. As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed.“Don’t be alarmed,” he said. “You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him."

"When the Church of Jesus"  | UMH 592 | Performed by Thiago Nascimento and OLUMC Choir 

When the church of Jesus
Shuts its outer door,
Lest the roar of traffic
Drown the voice of prayer:
May our prayers, Lord make us
Ten times more aware
That the world we banish
Is our Christian care.


If our hearts are lifted
Where devotion soars
High above this hungry
Suffering world of ours:
Lest our hymns should drug us
To forget its needs,
Forge our Christian worship
Into Christian deeds.


Lest the gifts we offer,
Money, talents, time,
Serve to salve our conscience
To our secret shame:
Lord, reprove, inspire us
By the way, you give;
Teach us, dying Savior,
How true Christians live.
