We’ll Work Till Jesus Comes….We’ll Work Till Jesus Comes!

The work of the church continues to move on! From the worship and praise to our God {Sunday morning included a heavenly Harp with two angelic voices added} to take us into worship of our Lord! To the study of God’s Word in our Bible study time {we still call it Sunday school, not ‘small groups’} to the proclamation of God’s Word through the preaching services, yes, plural, as we actually have two complete services each Sunday! To an amazing film presentations defending the Biblical stand on Creation: {Kent Hovind} for our adults and youth while the children are learning ‘Hymnology’.
We are involved in a continual movement to bring Glory to God every day as the church facilities are open for use almost every day and are available to the Church family anytime it is needed.
What a joy to be involved with a people whose purpose is to fellowship together in worship to God and to proclaim His message of Salvation to our community here and to the world as we sponsor world missions as well as local mission endeavors with our tithes and offerings.
For you who are reading these words and have set yourself on the shelf of non use, I call upon you to become involved again! There are a multitude of things you can do to help. You can work with children in the nursery, be involved with older children and youth, become part of a Bible Study class where you can learn God’s Word and be a participant where your questions and ideas can create a better learning atmosphere in our Sunday school classes.
If you have a voice to sing, there is the choir you can express to your heart’s desire your personal praise or if you play musical instruments there is a place for you to pick up your instrument and share God’s gift with us!!
Your talent level really doesn’t matter as there are so many things you can do to serve the Lord…again from cleaning the widows in classrooms to selecting a classroom to paint, replace carpet, or just a thorough cleaning!
The Church Library is in need of a makeover with removal of non biblical books and old VCR tapes…Kitchen?! Did I mention the kitchen? Yep remodel, cleaning, restructure? What more can I say? If any of these touch your nerve of service, call the church office 918-342-6997 and tell Cindy what you would like to do and we will do our best to ‘plug you in’ so you too can be part of what God is doing at 2450 King Rd. and around the world.
For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister.’
Hebrews 6:10

It is a joy to serve the Living God!

The Wonderful Sounds of Christmas

Sunday was a wonderful time of celebration of the Christmas Season. With nearly a full house and guests scattered throughout, Christmas Carols and special music of the Trumpet and Bells, Stevie and Emily in a sweet duet, well, it doesn’t get much better. The message of The Perfect Gift was easy to present after such wonderful proceedings! The weather in the morning was fair and warm….but just about time for the evening service lightening, wind and rain came with a vengeance! But even that could not keep most of us at home… The evening brought nearly a full house again as we prepared to hear the Christmas Cantata.
Bro. James Thompson and the Sanctuary Choir were prepared for the task and presented us with a beautiful rendition of the Christmas Story of Christ’s Birth. Betty James on the piano and Tim James as the Narrator coupled with the sounds of voices was pretty special. If you missed it and would like to see and hear the choir special, request a DVD from the church office…it will be a blessing to you.
Next Sunday the Children’s Choir will present their Christmas Play for us during the 6:00 p.m. Service. They have worked hard to present to us a traditional program with shepherds, lambs, Angels, Mary, Joseph and of course the Babe of Bethlehem! You won’t want to miss the joy of seeing our children and grandchildren act out the events of the Night that changed the course of the world!
I appreciate all the kind words, expressions of love and most of all your friendship this past year. God has been so good to us…it almost sounds trite to write that, but God is Good! Praise His Name forever! That I would be counted worthy to proclaim His Mercy and Grace, to stand behind His Holy Pulpit and proclaim the Mysteries of the Gospel, well, that is almost too much for my mind to believe!
May of 2012 completed forty years of leading God’s church with no interruptions! It was December 15, 1974 I was ordained at the First Baptist Church of Arapaho, OK to the Gospel ministry. What a privilege! What a Calling! What a Joy! Praise His Holy Name!
Thank you Lord for allowing an unworthy newspaper boy to fulfill your calling I felt from a child…. Wayne
