P

entecost is when the Holy Spirit was poured out on Jesus's followers and the church was born! (You can read all about it in Acts 2.) This year Pentecost is May 15th, and Oak Hill UMC will be celebrating this special day with red and orange decorations and special treats between services for everyone who attends. We hope you will come and bring friends to help us celebrate!

If you'd like to bring a birthday present for your church, some of our ministries have made a wish list for you to consider when shopping for your gift! There will be a gift table set up on May 15th in the Narthex to accept your presents. Please don't forget to enclose a tag so we'll know who to thank! The wish lists are:
