From the Pastor’s Desk 3/23/2017

This past Wednesday night I presented a recommendation to the church that Dr. Bill Green be approved to serve as our next Interim Minister of Music. While his calling to serve our church was not yet official at the time of writing, I feel very confident that our church family will excitedly affirm this godly and gifted man. I really got to know Bro. Bill during the Singing Churchmen of Oklahoma’s mission to Australia in 2003. It was my privilege to be one of five Oklahoma pastors who joined about 300 current and former ministers of music and...

I once read about a chain of adult education schools called The Learning Annex. These schools have supposedly “graduated” over 200,000 people who completed the popular classes on controlling household clutter. Who took the classes? People who keep empty jelly jars, manuals for appliances they no longer have, out-of-date phone books, and keys to houses they lived in many years ago. Household “junk” occupies space, saps us of energy, and creates a lot of frustration. Most every home needs to have an annual spring cleaning and the Tignor...

From the Pastor’s Desk 3/9/2017 ~ Concerns about “The Shack”

Concerns about “The Shack” The following excerpts were taken from a Baptist Press (BP) news article that appeared on the BP website on March 7, 2017 and included statements by Dr. R. Albert Mohler Jr., President of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky: Among critics of the film is Southern Baptist Theological Seminary President R. Albert Mohler Jr…it is dangerous in its false portrayal of the Holy Spirit, even though the book is a fictional fantasy…”We need to be clear. This depiction of God, of Christ,...

Last Sunday morning, I announced that the interim music ministry of Dr.  Randy Lind will conclude after the morning service on March 5.  As the Music and Worship Specialist for the BGCO, Randy took on additional ministry duties in addition to his already crowded convention responsibilities when He came to FBC as interim Minister of Music.  The state convention puts time limitations on their staff when they take on interim church positions. We have been greatly blessed by his worship leadership and choral direction. Many of us were...

The first session video of my Life Study Class, When Forgiveness Doesn’t Make Sense, opened with a moving story of a murderer who found Christ in prison and later sought the forgiveness of his victim’s sister. Well, suppose a non-Christian person murders another non-Christian person. The victim, according to the Bible, would spend eternity separated from God in hell (Romans 6:23; Revelation 20:11-15). If the murderer later repents of his sin and receives Christ as his Savior and Lord, he would go to heaven. Is that fair? From a mere human...

A special Night of Prayer will precede the State Evangelism Conference (SEC) on Sunday evening, January 29, at 5:00 p.m. I recommended to the church last Wednesday night that we transfer our evening worship to First Southern for this special prayer service. In addition to others who will be leading during the service, Charles Billingsley will be singing.   If you would like a ride to the Night of Prayer, please call the church office and request a seat on the church bus. If people sign up for transportation to the Night of Prayer, the bus...

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...
