The Pregnancy Care Clinic (PCC) in Oak Harbor is a ministry providing care and support for women and men experiencing unexpected pregnancies, providing free ultrasounds, counseling, and material support in the form of diapers, clothing, strollers, and more. OHLC member Morrie Parker serves on the board of the PCC. This year, we are once again participating in their community-wide fundraiser, the Baby Bottle Boomerang. Those interested in donating to our local PCC may pick up a PCC baby bottle in our narthex on or after Mother’s Day (May 8). Take it home, fill it with change, cash, and/or a check, and return it on (or by) Father’s Day (June 19).

We have partnered with Ashley’s Design to offer a wide variety of OHLC gear, including hoodies, polo shirts, ¼ zip and crewneck sweatshirts, t-shirts (including ladies cut), mugs, and tumblers!
We are selling these at cost so you can wear them as conversation starters! The store will be open through the end of May, and we will receive our orders in June.
You can also call the church office for help with placing an order: 679-1561.
On Sunday, May 8, we will be hosting a Mother’s Day Tea between services, from 9:15-10:15. We will have finger foods, muffins, faux mimosas, sparkling cider, and more! While Mother’s Day is not on the liturgical calendar, it gives us an opportunity to put half of the fourth commandment into practice as we honor all the moms of OHLC, past and present. All are welcome to join us!
On Sunday, May 1, we will be celebrating His Kids Preschool, a ministry of Oak Harbor Lutheran Church. Our preschool families will be invited to join us at the 10:30 service, where their kids will sing some of the songs they’ve learned in chapel. After worship, we’ll have a special reception in their honor!
We will be having a new member class on Sunday, April 24, beginning at Noon. Lunch will be provided. Come learn more about Lutheran Christianity, our congregation, and opportunities to serve Christ and grow spiritually as a member at OHLC! Please RSVP by emailing Pastor Spencer at email@example.com
