Maranatha Class News from March 11, 2012

We hope as many of you as possible will be in class on Sunday to hear Rev. Cynthia Harvey, Deputy General Secretary of the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR). The Church has been invited, so come early to get your usual seat! She will also speak at 2pm in the Asbury Room. You can read more about her at

Here’s the news from Maranatha Class this past Sunday . . .

Our Speaker

We were pleased to welcome Rev. Jeff Jaynes from Restore Hope, a United Methodist Ministry. He was a dynamic speaker and challenged us with issues that face people around the world, in Oklahoma and here in Tulsa. He also explained what Restore Hope is about and the wonderful good it does for people in need in Tulsa. He mentioned a number of ways to get involved. He left brochures in the classroom and you can contact Restore Hope directly to learn more.

Kendall & David Carpenter and Carol & Dave Grim – Many thanks!

Joys and Concerns

~ Janet made an announcement about Eric Green. He will be in Little Rock for a few weeks as they monitor and treat his condition which has morphed into something new. Cards and notes can be sent to this address through April 4th:

Eric Green
2200 Riverfront Drive #4111
Little Rock, AR 72202

Janet asked this info to be passed along as well . . . We are starting a two dinner a week plan. This week we’re taking food on Wednesday evening and Friday evening, but that schedule is very flexible. I have the first week covered with donations from the casserole brigade. We’re looking forward to receiving more HALF size casseroles—there will be only three Greens eating here in Tulsa. No lasagna, they seem to have plenty. If you have desserts that you can freeze, those would be very welcomed as well. Please e-mail me at purinton2 or call me at 918-230-3416 if you have meat or a casserole or dessert that you’d like me to pick up. There will be a cooler at Sunday School this coming Sunday to store anything you have prepared until I can get it to my freezer if that would be more convenient.

Bob Russell led the class in prayer

See you Sunday – remember to get there early to get your seat for our guest Speaker!
