"Be yourself; everyone else is already taken."
Oscar Wilde

Maranatha is an amazing class as a whole, and it has amazing individuals! Beverly North taught our lesson today, speaking about her and her husband, Mark’s, journey in supporting two littel girls through Children.Org. It was amazing! Thank you, Beverly (and Mark) for your presentation and personal mission to others. Beverly brought handouts for us to exam, and I’m hopeful that she will bring them once again for members to examine next week. Also, Beverly and Mark will soon have a website where we can learn even more.

Ed Payton (10/24), Beth Winchester (10/25), and Mary Adams(10/29) have birthdays this week. We wish you a happy one! Julee and Jim Embrey have an anniversary on October 30th; congratualtions!

Our greeters who brought goodies this morning were Mickey & Carol Maus, Mike Stephenson, and Denise Graham. Thank you. I must admit to having sampled some of it all, more than once!

Denny and Suzy Meredith-Orr brought in the "Angel Car", and explained that purchasing items listed on the "Car" will benefit the Tulsa Car Clinic; the project that we learned about from Lonnie Vaughn last week. We’ll be brining in items from the "Car" over the next several weeks. If you interested and can’t be in class with us, then check out the Maranatha website for the "Angel Car’ ( or contact Denny or Suzy.

Downtown for Good is scheduled for next Saturday, October 30th. Sign up with the church through Rev. Bill Crowell’s office if you have not already done so. You can sign up to work with other Maranatha members (just tell them that what you want to do), or you can work with another crew. There’s plenty of work to go around; you are needed!

October 31st, following the 11am service, it’s the Downtown Hoedown, an all-church celebration/harvest festival. Hotdogs and the trimmings, games for adults and children. Bring a blanket or lawn chair. $5 per person.

Michael Lane joined the class today; welcome! Grayson Davis and Melanie Evans where our visitors. Baby Grayson feel asleep but we were happy to have him with us anyway.

We had a number of joys and concerns expressed by members this morning. Unfortunately, notes on these joys and concerns were misplaced and, therefore, I can’t give you details. If you were there, you heard that there were those who need your prayers, and there were joys shared by many others as well. If you wish to have a specific joy or concern reported to those who were unable to attend this morning, then please contact me (richard.wansley) and I will send out a second notice this later week.

Lynn Russell led us in prayer. Thank you, Lynn!

Next week: it’s Brunch Sunday! No lesson, just sharing announcements, joys, concerns, prayer, and companionship! Join us!
