A LETTER FROM YOUR PASTOR

May 23, 2020


Dear Oak Brook Community Church Family,


It’s hard to believe 10 weeks have passed since we last gathered together. We miss you! We may not be meeting in the building, but the work of Christ's body continues.


On May 22nd, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued new "Interim Guidance for Communities of Faith" and President Trump encouraged

houses of worship to consider ways to reopen. Here in Illinois, announcements are being made, on almost a daily basis, that let us know things are also moving towards reopening. We are preparing to that end.


An OBCC Task Force Team is now meeting regularly to consider our own path to reopen our building for gatherings.  We ask for your prayers as we seek counsel from the Word of God, the Assemblies of God District resources, as well as State and Federal guidelines. 


This week we will share some of the guiding principles we will use to prepare to reopen.  We will invite members of our congregation to participate in a survey to gather opinions, concerns and comments.  Later in the week, we will communicate our phased approach to reopen safely.  Until you hear otherwise, we will continue to hold virtual worship services as we have for the past several weeks. 


We look forward to seeing you all soon!


Pastor Chip Block, OBCC Leadership & Task Force Team


James 1:2-5

2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters,[a] whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. 4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. 5 If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. 

We envision OBCC being an "Antioch Church" with a Spirit-driven, risk-taking, outward orientation that transforms our community one life at a time, and from here the world, with the life-changing love of Christ. 

As we look at the picture of the Antioch church may we envision a modern day Antioch church right here in Oak Brook!
