Maranatha news for November 25 – December 1

Greetings, Maranatha –

Great food, great fellowship – We had a wonderful brunch last Sunday! Thanks to all who brought the delicious food.

This Sunday begins our Advent series taught by our own class members – a highlight of the Advent season each year! Jerry LeDoux will teach us this week. He will be followed by Ken Privett on December 9th, Pam Low on December 16th, and Carol Maus on December 23rd.

If you would like to hear any of our previous lessons, you can find them at . Barbara Meehan has posted EvaMarie Campbell’s lesson on kindness from two weeks ago, but she did not include information about church security, since some of it was sensitive.


Happy birthday to Sandi Gardner on November 25th, Patti Smith and Lynn Goodwin on the 26th, and Rex Donley on the 30th!

The only opening left on our 2019 slate of officers is a class news email editor. This is not a difficult job – please contact Rick or Roger if you are willing to help.

Dave Grim needs volunteers to help at the Neighbor for Neighbor Christmas Party next Thursday, December 6. This event is always lots of fun.

Sharon Earley still has just a couple children at Redemption Church who need Christmas gifts. All gifts for those children need to be returned by Sunday, December 9, in order for the children to receive them at the party. Suggested amount is $25-$35. Please contact Sharon if you did not get a child’s name and would like to help.

Thanks to Scott Morgan for giving our prayer last Sunday. Shari Goodwin will have our prayer this week and Wanda Williams (guilty/setup) and Glenna Arnott (healthy/clean up) will host.


Our annual Christmas Party and Auction is coming up on December 14 at Tulsa Country Club. Cost to attend is $50 per person, but please don’t stay away if that amount poses a hardship for you. Just contact Susie Butterworth – there are funds to help. If you can’t attend the party, you can assign a proxy to bid for you for the auction. Auctioneers Scott Gardner and Jim McCann need your auction item info ASAP. Please get your information sheets to them quickly so that a list of auction items can be published before the party. All proceeds go to missions!


Valerie Grogan, Kendall and David Carpenter’s daughter, has been hospitalized for blood clots in her lungs. She is improving, but please keep her in your prayers.

People dealing with blizzard conditions in the northeast.

Pam Sherman learned that her cousin in California did lose anything in the fires and is fine.

Scott Morgan shared that he told EvaMarie Campbell about an editorial on kindness by David Boren in Sunday’s newspaper.

Debbie Jacoby is still having to be in a darkened room as her brain recovers from recent trauma. She would really appreciate prayers and cards.


The five class party dates for 2019 are posted below. Please don’t plan any auction item parties on these dates in order to avoid any conflicts. The dates are:

February 3, 2019 – Super Bowl Party

April 6, 2019 – Progressive Dinner

June 14, 2019 – Potluck Dinner & Trivia Event

August 16, 2019 – Diner Dinner & Movie at B.A. – Hamburgers & Hot Dogs in the Diner & a movie in the Theater

Thanks for all you mean to our class – See you Sunday!

– Shari
