Mission Projects and Events

 
     Oak Street Baptist Church is a 'mission-minded' congregation whose desire is to fulfill 'The Great Commission' of our Lord, Jesus Christ. We presently are number six in our state convention of churches for per capita giving to mission causes. In 2015 the church gave 47% of it's receipts to missions, and we will exceed that percentage in 2016.

     In July 2-9, our pastor led a team of 14 from 4 states on a mission trip to Calebasse, Haiti, where the team built a house for a widow, held a medical and optical clinic. Two-hundred and ten patients were seen at each clinic, and 146 pair of glasses were dispensed. The members of the congregation were challenged to raise $5,000.00 to build the house, and $16,523.00 was raised to pay for three houses to be completed by teams from others teams who followed us.
 
     This was the second year in which a team was sent from our church. The previous team also built a house and held a medical clinic. The people of Haiti were so gracious and appreciative of the work we did there. May God receive the glory for all that will continue to be done there.
