Maranatha Weekly Newsletter – March 29

We hope and prayer that each of you are staying healthy. In order to maintain a bit of normalcy and to pass on relevant information during these uncertain times, I’ve elected to continue the weekly class newsletter. If you have any social events, announcements, prayer requests, etc. that you would like included, please let me know.

Sunday School Lesson and Class Time!

As previously announced, Joel is recording his lessons for Lent and they are being posted online.

The first three of five lessons in Joel Panciera’s Lenten series for our Maranatha Class are now available for viewing through Google Drive, using this link:

Joel encourages feedback. Send your questions or thoughts to

You should have also received an email providing information about the launching of weekly Maranatha Sunday School Class Zoom Teleconferences beginning next Sunday (Palm Sunday) at 10:15 am and associated “training or practice” sessions Monday – Friday of this week. I encourage you to participate.

Birthdays and Anniversaries

Happy birthday to the following folks:

Suzan Morgan – March 29th

John Harkins – April 1st

No anniversaries again this week.

Upcoming Social Activities (and cancellations)

It is with much disappointment that the decision to cancel the Designer Showcase is official. I apologize but our Maranatha designer showcase auction party is cancelled. I pray for you health and safety during these unprecedented times. Lynn

The next class social is planned for Friday, May 1. We hope and pray there will be no need to cancel or postpone. It will be a celebration of the 40th Anniversary of Maranatha with a lovely dinner and worship opportunity. Stay tuned for more details.

Due to the current restaurant restrictions, the weekly meeting of Maranatha Men on Tuesdays for food and fellowship has been suspended. We hope to restart again in the near future.

Christmas Party/Auction – December 12 at Tulsa Country Club

Upcoming Mission Opportunities

April 10 – Serving dinner at the Day Center for the Homeless – due to the current situation, we are exploring other avenues for providing this meal. We will not be serving in person.

July 26 – Serving dinner at Redemption Church

September – Operation School Bell

You have a chance to be a part of the first Mission Team to our Church’s new National Mission Partner, McCurdy Ministries in Espanola New Mexico (just north of Santa Fe). The team is hoping to go to McCurdy from May 22nd to May 27 (tentatively but schedule will be adjusted based on team members). If you are interested, please contact Ed or Judith Payton right away!

Joys and Concerns

For all of our class members and their families during these uncertain times.

Continue to pray for Lynn Goodwin who has been diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia and was to begin chemo today (Monday).

If you miss announcing a prayer request in class, feel free to email me at earleysharon1 with your request.

Other Class Announcements

It is time again to consider the contributions that our class will be making. A donations request form was attached to an early-March email newsletter. You may use it to submit a requested donation. The deadline for submission has been postponed. The form should be sent to Kendall Carpenter.
