Class news for October 7-13

Happy Wednesday, Maranatha –

What a treat it is to have Dr. Mouzon Biggs, Jr. teaching us this month! He is focusing this series, entitled “THOSE SEVEN OLDEST LETTERS!” on the writings of Paul. We always learn so much when he teaches our class!

CLASS ANNOUNCEMENTS

Welcome to our visitors, Robert Chase, Gail Biggs, and Stefanie and Rick Kelly!

Happy birthday to Scott Morgan on October 7th, Jim McCann on the 8th, Jennifer Hall on the 11th, Karen Campbell on the 12th, and Mary Bundren on the 13th!

Meredith Davisson thanked all who helped with Operation School Bell last week, and reminded everyone that this month is our class’s turn to help host the Compassion Dinners – tomorrow, the 11th, and Thursday the 25th. Volunteers are needed from 5:00-7:30. Come when you can – it’s a great way to serve others. It’s great to have as many class members as possible.

Rick Evans’ and Roger Rowe’s “reign of terror” is coming to an end just 3 ½ months from now, and they’re starting to fill the slate of officers for next year. The list is on the board – please consider filling one of these hotly-contested positions. They say, “If it’s blank, you’re qualified!”

Thanks to Sharon Chucoski for leading us in prayer Sunday, and to the Dale/McCanns, Barbara Meehan, and Robert Chase for our snacks. Kendall Carpenter will give our prayer this week and Denzil and Lisa Tallent (guilty/setup) and Sam and Sarah Smith (healthy/cleanup) will be our hosts.

JOYS AND CONCERNS:

Congratulations to Karen and Art Campbell, whose daughter and son-in-law, Alexis and Chris McGeehee, are expecting a baby boy in March.

Bob Russell’s heart procedure was successful. There is still more to come.

Dave Shepherd and family are relieved that his brother does not have cancer.

Debbie Jacoby’s daughter Shannon is getting married this month in Turks & Caicos.

Albert Klein is still in Hillcrest Heart Institute on the fifth floor, but is in good spirits.

Charlotte Rowe’s sister’s husband has been battling an infection and needs prayer.

Jimmy Berg’s friend Rick Cook will have a kidney transplant, and neighbor Jerry Hunter is battling dementia. Also, Jeff Baker has some health problems.

Please keep our classmates, Jim Griffin and Jennifer Hall, in your prayers as they battle cancer.

OTHER

Chanticleer, one of the top men’s choral ensembles in the world, will be singing at Boston Avenue on October 26 at 8:00 p.m. This is a rare opportunity! Tickets are on sale on the Sistema Tulsa website. If you enjoy great music, this will be a real treat. If you know others who enjoy great music, please pass the word!

Seeking Seniors is hosting a tour of Holy Family Cathedral next Thursday, October 18. It will be led by Joseph Chavez, a well-known Catholic artist. Box lunches will be available at 11:30 for $5 for those who want to eat lunch before the tour.

Our church is now posting a daily devotional prayer on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram at 6:00 every morning. These devotionals will help us all prepare our hearts and minds to take our part in the annual stewardship campaign. You can also sign up for these prayers in the "Connect" section of our website.

Hope you’re having a good week. See you Sunday!

Shari
