2 Corinthians 6:1-10  We then, as workers together with him, beseech you also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain.  (2)  (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)  (3)  Giving no offence in any thing, that the ministry be not blamed:  (4)  But in all things approving ourselves as the ministers of God, in much patience, in afflictions, in necessities, in distresses,  (5)  In stripes, in imprisonments, in tumults, in labours, in watchings, in fastings;  (6)  By pureness, by knowledge, by longsuffering, by kindness, by the Holy Ghost, by love unfeigned,  (7)  By the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armour of righteousness on the right hand and on the left,  (8)  By honour and dishonour, by evil report and good report: as deceivers, and yet true;  (9)  As unknown, and yet well known; as dying, and, behold, we live; as chastened, and not killed;  (10)  As sorrowful, yet alway rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things.

Mother’s Day and VBS Preparation

Jeanie Ross called for our VBS workers to meet again Sunday afternoon for their third time. They are preparing for a great time for all our children and the children of our area under the theme of ‘The Master Builder. As I listened and took in the intensity of our ladies, I was amazed at their interest and devotion to reaching and teaching children about Jesus! What a wonderful way to express their gifts of the Spirit! I hope you will take part in our Vacation Bible School again this year that we have scheduled for June 15-19.
Many churches are going to an evening VBS because so many ladies are working outside of the home these days. It takes time and real sacrifice to plan, prepare and produce an effective VBS and our ladies {and some men} have risen to the challenge every year. Some even take vacation time to serve!
I appreciate the work and commitment that goes into a successful VBS and the labor of love that causes it to be so. Make plans to participate this year by calling the Church office {918-342-6997} to enroll your children or neighbor children and to volunteer your time. We also have Yard Signs to put in your neighborhood that will advertise our VBS and an offer to pick up children and take them to VBS.
Mothers Day is this Sunday. It is a day set apart on the calendar to remember our mothers and the blessing they have been to our lives. If your mother is still alive take time to honor her while you can. She is the single greatest asset you have in your life. I have watched my children’s mother bear, love and care for her clutch with selfless giving of herself. I honor her labor of love in the raising of our children and her devotion to our grandchildren! God bless all you ladies that have made such a difference in our lives! My mom has passed, but she still lives in my heart and the time she invested in my life has paid her dividends for eternity. She is with the Lord now and I will never, in this life, have opportunity to say to her: “Thank you mom for investing your life in me. I love you and thank God for what you mean to me still today.”
I have invited Ronnie and Mary Lou Warren to come have a concert for us this Sunday evening in honor of Mother’s Day. I think you will be blessed by their wonderful music. Plan to come Sunday evening at 6:00 to spend an hour with your mom in worship in song.
See you Sunday! Bro. Wayne
