Baby Bottle Campaign

The Capitol Hill Pregnancy Center (CHPC) serves and cares for families experiencing an unintended pregnancy.  Oakbrook Church is supporting the CHPC by participating in their “Baby Bottle” campaign, which began on Mother’s Day, May 13.

Please help by taking home an empty CHPC baby bottle and fill it with change, bills or a check made out to the Capitol Hill Pregnancy Center. Bottles should be returned to the church before or on June 18th (Father’s Day).

Your change will help families by providing them with diapers, clothing, blankets, and much more.  Here are some examples: $8 buys 25 disposable diapers, $1.50 buys a special urban edition of the New Testament; $1.09 buys one pregnancy test; and $0.30 buys one brochure on abortion or abstinence.

Empty CHPC baby bottles are available in the church lobby.  Just one baby bottle filled with change can make a difference to persons with an unintended pregnancy!

 

Oakbrook’s Mission Trip to Guatemala–June 30-July 7
 

A team of 7 will travel to the northern highlands of Guatemala to conduct a variety of ministry outreaches to the indigenous Mayan communities who live in the region. The team will work side-by-side with ASELSI–the Association for “Equipping the Saints” International. We are planning to raise most of the funds for this trip through donations and other fundraising efforts. If you would like to donate, please make checks payable to “Oakbrook Church” with “Guatemala Mission 2018” designated on the checks and place them in the Bread Box. For additional information, click here.

Prayer Chain Ministry
Oakbrook has an email prayer chain ministry, so we can lift each other up in prayer as brothers and sisters in Christ. Those who have a prayer request can send an email to prayer@oakbrookchurch.orgThat prayer request will then be distributed to members who have chosen to be part of Oakbrook’s prayer chain ministry. If you would like to participate in the prayer chain, please email Kathy at
