Maranatha Newsletter

Hey, friends:

Attached you will find this week’s newsletter. A few things to note:

*** As a result of a tremendous turnout (63 people! Hot diggety!), we are changing the timing slightly for our Culture and Cuisine Social Event this Friday, March 4th. We will meet first at the Jenks Planetarium, 205 E. "B" Street, Jenks, (housed on the 3rd floor of the new Math & Science building on the Central Campus) at 6:00 Friday. After viewing the presentation on the Sistine Chapel, we will then adjourn to the Tres Amigos Restaurant at 81st & Lewis in the Plaza Shopping Center at 7:15. We had to change restaurants because Los Cabos could only accommodate half of our number and Tres Amigos can seat us all. You may recall that we ate there when we did the Oldie-wed Game as our social. This is a terrific group of people, but we will have more fun if YOU are there, so contact Karen Campbell if your plans change and you can join us!

*** Shari Goodwin has been cleaning out files and has generously placed a number of wonderful pictures on the back table in our classroom. All of them contain members of Maranatha (or our adorable children at various ages), so if you see one that involves someone that you love, feel free to take it to enjoy. Note – I believe I have deftly snagged all of the offending pictures that show Molleigh in her unfortunate perm as a small child, so I would appreciate it if none of you would remind her about that parental mistake on my part.

***Class members generous donated $200 as a love offering to Sharon Cambridge yesterday, to thank her for her hard work on our recent Chili Supper. It will be presented to her, along with a signed card, this week on her 77th birthday.

Have a wonderful week and try to join us on Friday for the Sistine Chapel and sopapillas, if you can.

Remember that you are appreciated, enjoyed and admired by your class members.

Hey, friends:

Attached you will find this week’s newsletter. A few things to note:

***Tonight is the Chili Supper. Please come to Community Hall or the kitchen and help if you can between 4:00 and 7:00, even if you are not signed up for a time slot. Many hands make light work!

***This Friday, February 26th, is the special dinner to celebrate Shari Goodwin’s retirement as Communications Director for the church. Please come support her (and enjoy the shenanigans of Denzil Tallent & Gene Martin)if you possibly can. Call the church to get a ticket for $10.00.

***Sunday, February 28th, I am teaching the TAGS Class, which is a fun and participatory workshop where we use activities and hands-on opportunities to determine what Talents, Abilities, Gifts and Skills God has given to you. The class lasts from noon to 4:30 and we provide lunch. If you are interested, please contact me ASAP.

***Sign ups continue on Sunday for the Culture & Cuisine Social Event on March 4th where we are eating at Los Cabos and then attending a private showing at the Jenks Planetarium. We’ve got a good group, but we’d have more fun if YOU came with us!

Have a good week and remember that you are appreciated, enjoyed and admired by the members of our class.

Newsletter

Hey, friends:

Attached you will find this week’s newsletter with all the news that’s fit to print! Please remember that our Barton/Clinton/Gordey Chili Supper is coming up next week. If you haven’t yet volunteered or need a reminder about the time slot during which you are working, please contact Jim Embrey at jjsembrey. Ticket sellers for this Sunday are : 9:30 -9:45 (Sarah & Cisco Maldonado) 10:40 -11:00 (Stuart Solomon & Jim/Julee Embrey) 12:00 – 12:15 (Sharon Earley & Stuart Solomon).

Our class is continuing to provide meals to the Staats three times per week. Great news about his health: Paul’s insurance has approved him for consultation at M.D. Anderson in Houston! Caranatha Chair Carol Grim is in close contact with Paul & Mary. She will continue to provide information on signing up for meals, but as soon as we know when they will be leaving for Houston, she will let everyone know to "step away from the stove" since they won’t need meals while they are gone.

Don’t forget to purchase your tickets for the dinner on Friday, February 26th, honoring our own Shari Goodwin as she steps down from her position as Director of Communication on BAUMC staff. Tickets are only $10.00 each. Gene Martin and Denzil Tallent are providing the Maranatha Moment on Shari, but she is STILL coming to the dinner anyway! You won’t want to miss it!

Have a great week and know that you are appreciated, enjoyed and admired by your class members.

Paul and Kate Staat – Urgent prayer request

Hey, friends:

Mary sent a text asking for urgent prayers. Paul is at the emergency room having his respiratory infection evaluated as his last several doctor visits and urgent care visits have failed to help and the condition is getting worse. At the same time, their daughter Kate (who is pregnant) is at urgent care with either flu or something else. Mary is with Paul but also very worried about Kate. Mary asked for immediate prayers from the class. She also indicated that they could use meals at this time, so if you are able to help with meals, please contact Carol Grim. I will keep you posted if I learn additional information about either Paul or Kate.

Thanks,
Angie

Maranatha Newsletter

Hey, friends:

Attached you will find our newsletter for this week, which I hope will provide you with an update on things happening within our class and around the church. Two things of note:

***Rev. Ken Tobler will be our speaker this week and next week. His topic is "Tying Faith Into Nots." No, I didn’t misspell the word "nots." That’s what he gave me!

***Audra Fogle is seeking four to six people from our class to be responsible for providing communion at Oklahoma Methodist Manor one Sunday per month at 11:00. People who have done this have found it to be profoundly meaningful and moving to interact in such a special way with our senior citizens, many of whom were bedrock members of BAUMC. If you are interested in serving in this way, there is a training class at OMM on Tuesday, February 16th from 6:00 to 7:15. If you would like to be involved in some way but cannot commit to one Sunday per month, please contact Audra to discuss how you can participate at (918) 699-0130.

Hope you have a great week and remember that you are appreciated, enjoyed and admired by members of the class.

Thanks,
Angie
