For your information:   Winter is here so no telling when we will actually be having real winter weather.  In Oklahoma, it’s hard to know.  We have spring-like days and then winter days. If the weather is bad on    Sunday, in most cases we will post the decision to cancel on Saturday night or at least by 6:30 a.m. on Sunday morning.  You can check the news stations on TV or on your computer and see if we will be having church.  We will also post it on FaceBook and the church’s website.  We will send out emails to those...

From the Pastor’s Desk:   As we begin the New Year, there are resolutions that will be made that likely will be broken before the month is over; it may be a promise to lose weight, exercise more, break a bad habit, or to begin a good habit. I would like to suggest a few things that we all should do every day in 2017: Surrender to the Lord’s complete control. Read a portion of God’s word and pray. Desire that God will be glorified in every circumstance in your life. Doing these three things will make 2017 one of the most meaningful,...

Last Sunday morning, I talked about the gifts Jesus came to give. Have you given any thought and consideration to what you are going to give Him? I have often said that one of the best gifts you can give is a generous financial gift to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering for International Missions; and I still believe it is Christ-honoring way to celebrate His birth. But is it the only thing you can give Him? Of course, there are other things you can give. But rather than focus on the things you should stop doing because you love Him, I want to...

  The following excerpts were taken from an article that was written in 2009 by Dr. Erwin Lutzer, pastor emeritus of Moody Church in Chicago. I pray it will speak to your heart as it did mine:   There will be no Christmas Celebrations in Turkey, this year! Rebecca and I visited Turkey (formerly Asia Minor), where Paul spent most of his time planting churches. It is also where the famous Seven Churches of Revelation existed…and when we visited all seven of these sites…The Seven Churches of Asia Minor no longer exist. I am not...

The Bogota Mission Trip that, at one time, seemed so far away, is now just a few days away. I and the other team members (Johnnie Kay, John and Cindy Cauffiel, David Day, and Mark Roby) want to thank every person who gave financially; over $10,000 was given through offerings and fund raising events. God bless you all for caring and for sharing. If you are wondering about the prayer needs of the team, please pray for: the Baptist church in Bogota and Pastor Sadis the borough of Bosa (pop. 200,000) where there is no evangelical church...

I want to expand on the introductory sermon illustration I used last Sunday. I have both family and friends whose children are employed by major airlines. For a small service charge, the      parents get to fly wherever the airline flies. There’s one drawback, however. They must fly “standby.” That means they’re allowed to board only if there’s space available. While the paying passengers board, they must wait, wondering if their names will be called. They can never be certain of getting seats because available...

This is my pre-election article. I can no more predict who will be elected president any more today than I could just after they were chosen at their respective political conventions. This is the most important  election between the two most unpopular major party candidates in my lifetime. Putting this reality and other important aspects into perspective is challenging, to say the least. The Bible tells us in Romans 13 that, at best, human leaders are imperfect stewards of power that ultimately belongs to God. Therefore, no leader can...

This has, without question, been the most unusual year in my 45 years of voting in presidential elections.  It was recently reported that whichever candidate wins the election for President, he or she will have the highest beginning disapproval rating of any newly elected candidate in history! Unfortunately, some of the people who have concluded that neither candidate is desirable are considering not voting at all. Beloved, exercising your civic responsibility to vote goes beyond your feelings about the candidates. Regardless of the...
