COVID-19 Digital Ministry

OLUMC will remain closed until further notice. We appreciate your understanding in this time and we pray that you remain healthy and safe. We also encourage you to extend Christian love and fellowship to one another by checking in on each other via text, emails, Skype, Facetime and good old fashioned phone calls. Remember your family in this time! We are at a distance physically, but let us not be far apart in heart! In the meantime, below are the ways we are connecting with one another during the week. As opportunities evolve, we’ll post them here. We hope to see you online sometime soon.

Get Involved

Choir
One area that has been reinvented, and for good reason, is our singing ministry, the OLUMC Choir. However, we are still needing good musicians to participate in our digital worship service! If you’re interested in doing so, reach out to Chris Pillsbury, our interim Choir Director at Chris.Pillsbury@gmail.com and express your interest.

Membership
Digital Membership Classes ARE available if the interest is there! We have successfully completed one digital membership class and are open to doing more. If you’re considering joining Oak Lawn UMC, email Pastor Mara, Mara.Morhouse@OLUMC.org, and she’ll connect you to the right folks so you won’t miss a class!

Advocacy

We are a pretty active church. Whether protesting, demonstrating, or doing the work in our individual lives, we are ALL about advocating and being the best ally we can be. Below are some ways to participate.

Together
When we are planning to go somewhere as a group, we’ll post the event to this page: olumc.org/LetLoveContinue
If you’d like to join our text group to stay updated as to when the page is updated, text the word UPDATES to the number 214-441-6647 and you’ll be opted-in to our text group.

Individually
Check out this resource: “A New Way to Talk with Black and White Theologically Conservative Christians about the Place of Lesbian and Gay People in Our Families, Our Churches and Society
