9:30 a.m., Saturday, April 22

On Saturday, April 22 from 9:30 until 11:00 a.m. the pastor will offer the fourth session of “Journey to Wholeness: The Path to God and Your True Self.” In the first class we explored the steps to experiencing God’s love in a personal way. In the second class we explored the nature of sin and ways to recognize our sinful nature and actions. In the third class we looked at God’s rescue mission. In this fourth class we will examine the steps involved in our responding to God’s offer of salvation

2:00 p.m., Sunday, May 7

A CROP Hunger Walk is fun, but it is also an opportunity to learn what millions of people have to do each day just to survive—they walk. When you walk in a CROP Walk, you join a growing movement: Communities Responding to Overcome Poverty—CROP. First Baptist Church of Oak Park is participating in the Oak Park “Hunger Walkathon West” again this year on Sunday May 7th at 2:00 p.m. For more information visit www.hwwcrop.org
