Maranatha Newsletter for Nov 26

It was wonderful to experience a brunch with the Heritage Class. I would say it was the largest attended Sunday brunch we’ve every experienced. What a great way to transition from Thanksgiving to the Christmas season. Moreover, we get to party and raise funds Friday night!

Prayer request -Jama Moore

Hi everyone, I have a prayer request,

And more.

My friend Jama Moore, a lifelong Methodist but not affiliated with church since moving back to Tulsa 10 yrs ago, retired TPS band director and jazz musician, (Rob Reck knows her, well, he knows everyone!) last night got a brain tumor confirmation.

This was discovered when she broke her nose in a fall (along with her shoulder) a few weeks ago.

She is looking at going to MD Anderson as St Francis can’t get her scheduled for months.

Here’s the request: I am networking to see if any former patient of MD Anderson can touch base with her to give some support/assurance/info……as you can imagine she is bowled over right now. I have left messages for Amy Venable/Paul Staat. They do not need any food/etc. support now, just prayers and emotional support.

If anyone has any ideas for me, please let me know! Home phone is best, 918.749.0904

Thanks so much!

Ruth W. Giessen

Maranatha Newsletter for Nov. 19th

Maranatha,

Our own Ed Payton was our speaker for the lesson this Sunday. I thought that I knew him reasonably well, but after that introduction, I feel like I’ve wasted my adulthood. He was well prepared for his lesson on The Emerging Church, an interesting time for our faith.

Next week will be a Brunch Sunday.

Hope that everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving!!

2018 pledge cards

Sunday morning Rev. David Wiggs announced that there are several hundred pledge cards still outstanding. If you haven’t sent your pledge, I encourage you to call the church and let them know your estimated or known giving for next year. It will help reduce the hundreds of calls they have to make this Thursday.

Thanks!

Scott
